In our most recent item regarding The Summer of Vick, The Sequel, we explained that the question of whether he had direct or indirect involvement in the reported shooting of former Bad Newz Kennels associate Quanis Phillips has far less relevance than the apparent fact that Vick was in the same place as Phillips.
And while this rekindled association, if true, could jeopardize Vick’s status with the federal government and the National Football League, the mere whiff of a problem could be enough to get the Eagles to cut the cord.
For now, the team hasn’t said much of anything. Per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the team issued the following statement: “We are aware of the incident that occurred in
Virginia early this morning and are in the process of gathering all of the facts. Until then, we will not have any
comment on this matter.“
Depending on what they learn, the Eagles may opt for action instead of commentary. Before doing so, however, they’d better have a damn good plan in place for backing up Kevin Kolb.
Then again, they arguably don’t have a damn good plan in place for backing up Kolb even with Vick on the team.
