McCoy challenges “old man” Vick to race, and gets smoked

vick-and-mccoy Getty Images

Eagles safety Colt Anderson has posted the basic details on Twitter:  quarterback Mike Vick and running back LeSean McCoy raced in practice on Thursday, and Vick won.

But there’s more to the story, which we’ve obtained from a league source with knowledge of the situation.

McCoy had been riding Vick for weeks, calling him “old man” and challenging Vick to a footrace.  Vick had been laughing it off, until today.

Today, Vick had enough.  So he asked coach Chip Kelly if he could accept McCoy’s invitation.  Kelly agreed.

So they lined up and took off, and Vick didn’t just beat McCoy.  Vick smoked McCoy by roughly five yards over a 40-yard distance, and their teammates went nuts.

It has no direct relevance to the fate of the 2013 Eagles, but it proves that the “old man” can still move, which is bad news for any defense facing him this year.

    He should have challenged him to a spelling test.

  2. njgiant1982 says: May 2, 2013 12:46 PM

    Maybe they make a metal and put that in the empty trophy case?

  3. schuch10 says: May 2, 2013 12:46 PM

    Speed doesn’t prevent fumbles, interceptions, or injuries.

  4. comatrip1 says: May 2, 2013 12:47 PM

    But how did Tim Tebow do in the race?

  5. explosionsauce says: May 2, 2013 12:47 PM

    He used old man strength to win. It’s a real thing you know.

  6. bigkountry24 says: May 2, 2013 12:48 PM

    That should say alot…Speed is speed and that cant be taught. I think Vick will have a decent year this year. And not just because of this post today either.

  7. justintuckrule says: May 2, 2013 12:48 PM

    Finally a story where I applaud Vick! Only because I hate McCoy that much more.

  8. kingpel says: May 2, 2013 12:49 PM

    Good to see Vick is returning to the PEDs. Timing is everything with these drug tests.

  9. floratiotime says: May 2, 2013 12:49 PM

    The bigger question is what’s wrong with McCoy.

  10. thenewenglandpatriots12 says: May 2, 2013 12:49 PM

    Looks like this old dog still has some tricks

  11. devildog911 says: May 2, 2013 12:50 PM

    That’s hilarious.

  12. seabreezes51 says: May 2, 2013 12:50 PM

    An offensive line and a simpler playbook will help him a lot.

  13. brownoholic says: May 2, 2013 12:51 PM

    Sounds like he just punished him. Brutally…

  14. flash1283 says: May 2, 2013 12:51 PM

    Yeah he’s fast, to bad he cant take a hit.

  15. jpaynethemayne says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    the “old dog” can still run. AY YOO!

  16. bornking24 says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    I didn’t see any of that during last year’s season..

  17. mungman69 says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    Metal? What?

  18. offthelows says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    5 yards? What was the length of the race?

  19. Carl Gerbschmidt says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    Great, they’re running back is terrible, too.

  20. n0hopeleft says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    Somewhere, Osi is LAUGHING at Lady Gaga.

  21. thompgk says: May 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    I am more interested in how they take a hit than how fast they are.

  22. clk320cpe says: May 2, 2013 12:53 PM

    Speed doesn’t give the ability to read a blitz & hotroute/set protection at the line.

    Speed doesn’t make you a productive QB.

  23. ambitoos says: May 2, 2013 12:53 PM

    It’s just too bad that he can’t run and protect the ball at the same time. Something like walking and chewing at the same time.

  24. fpuskas says: May 2, 2013 12:54 PM

    But how would he have done if he was in the SEC?

  25. mvp43 says: May 2, 2013 12:55 PM

    He’s Greyhound fast………

  26. slayisland says: May 2, 2013 12:55 PM

    Well that explains a lot

  27. otrd13 says: May 2, 2013 12:55 PM

    we need this video and we need it NOW!

    also, distance?? 100 yards, 5 isnt a huge deal but in a 40, that’s insane.

  28. jjthesportsguy says: May 2, 2013 12:55 PM

    Luckily for all those teams facing him he can’t hold onto a football too well while “moving”, and when he throws it…the other team often catches it.

  29. jburns9999 says: May 2, 2013 12:56 PM

    Should have made them both carry a football. Vick would have had to keep stopping to pick his up.

  30. autoriot says: May 2, 2013 12:56 PM

    This is a great story. Thanks for posting it. It’s nice to read something simple and fun sometimes that let’s you know the goings on about your team and its players.

  31. nyyjetsknicks says: May 2, 2013 12:57 PM

    Vick should have ended the race and said “you better check yourself before you wreck yourself”.

  32. thebigtim2012 says: May 2, 2013 12:57 PM

    He’s fast. So is Jeff demps. It’s what you do with the speed that matters, and do far he hasn’t done anything

  33. antalicus says: May 2, 2013 12:57 PM

    Lesean is slow. Dude ran a 4.5 pre-draft and is probably running a 4.8 now.

  34. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: May 2, 2013 12:58 PM

    McCoy lost because he was too busy being Shady.

  35. duster1982 says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    or you could look at it as good news for opposing defenses that McCoy is slow?

  36. manny58200 says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    “which is bad news for any defense facing him this year” why is he some how getting faster as he ages???? He was the same speed last year and he sucked

  37. 1oldpro says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    Seriously, I would just love to read more fun stuff like this on your website. Please.

  38. wjcain23 says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    i dont think it bodes well when the qb is faster than the rb in most cases…..

  39. eagleseagleseagles says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    I guess madden needs to do an update now that we know Vick has more speed and acceleration than McCoy….

  40. hpeters77 says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    looks like madden will have to change its speed ratings

  41. brettfavresmidget says: May 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    Then they’d both lose badly.

  43. dawksclaws says: May 2, 2013 1:00 PM

    The article fails to mention Vick fumbled twice and threw 3 picks in the race.

  44. marvsleezy says: May 2, 2013 1:00 PM

    McCoy ran a 4.5 at the combine i believe. After a few years in the NFL hes probably running a 4.55 now and Vick is running like a 4.5 maybe.

    These guys are no where near the top of the league in 40 times, sorry.

  45. themosh2013 says: May 2, 2013 1:00 PM

    After losing, McCoy was then drowned in a bucket of water and buried in the back of the property.

  49. jibberator says: May 2, 2013 1:00 PM

    Now he needs to use that speed and run straight to the sideline. O:

  50. novusanimus says: May 2, 2013 1:01 PM

    Vick had been laughing it off (while secretly taking HGH to prepare.)

  51. bgm9876 says: May 2, 2013 1:01 PM

    Hahahaha. What a joke

  52. flyersfan19 says: May 2, 2013 1:02 PM

    if you’re going to be a troll, at least spell medal correctly.

  53. bigal1952 says: May 2, 2013 1:02 PM

    McCoy only ran a 4.5 at his pro-day in 2009. I could see this as news if he had run sub 4.4, but what’s the big deal? He’s not that fast, relatively speaking.

  54. billgarza says: May 2, 2013 1:02 PM

    Did they wave a dog whip in front of Vick as bait?

  55. corkspop says: May 2, 2013 1:03 PM

    Vick is a great athlete…. still. New coach, better protection up front, who knows? And I’m not an Eagles fan.

  56. zack2482 says: May 2, 2013 1:03 PM

    Wow, that’s great you can run fast Vick. Too bad you can’t throw!

  57. derrickbrooks4president says: May 2, 2013 1:03 PM

    Too bad none of the dogs he tortured and killed could out run him. That’s right. he will never outrun his history.

  58. sportsnut101 says: May 2, 2013 1:04 PM

    Did Vick use deer antler spray. Or just used his dog tag for good luck.

  59. finsguy says: May 2, 2013 1:04 PM

    I hope Mike Vick has a great year.

  60. ktfulmer says: May 2, 2013 1:04 PM

    I would expect that race to be a real dog fight.

  61. blockedshotnyr says: May 2, 2013 1:04 PM

    Still can’t play quarterback.

  62. rpiotr01 says: May 2, 2013 1:05 PM

    There must have been a dog to electrocute waiting at the finish line.

  63. dredddog says: May 2, 2013 1:05 PM

    and in other news…the Eagles are still horrible.

  64. buddysguys says: May 2, 2013 1:06 PM

    anyone run shirtless? if not ESPN doesn’t care.

  65. tomahoochi says: May 2, 2013 1:06 PM

    I blame McNabb

  66. mrtrappedinmymindsr says: May 2, 2013 1:06 PM

    Honestly, I find this surprising because Mccoy is pretty fast. Maybe that read option is going to be deadlier than I thought. Or maybe Vick gets injured before week 1……

  67. JMClarkent says: May 2, 2013 1:06 PM

    Sadly Mike electrocuted Shady after he lost the race…

  68. gammynomnom says: May 2, 2013 1:07 PM

    That’ll come in handy when defenses allow him to run in a straight line up the field.

  69. brento1499 says: May 2, 2013 1:08 PM

    i’m not surprised, shady’s MO is killing defenses with his jukes and cuts. his dead-sprinting ability has always been pretty average by starting nfl RB standards

  70. pkrlvr says: May 2, 2013 1:08 PM

    What the article didn’t say is that the race was held at the local greyhound park and Vick’s camp secretly replaced the bunny with a small, under-performing pit bull.

  71. frankfordyellowjackets says: May 2, 2013 1:09 PM

    GO EAGLES!

  72. coltzfan166 says: May 2, 2013 1:09 PM

    Lol McCoy deserves it

  73. drwang13 says: May 2, 2013 1:09 PM

    Yeah, that’s great and all but speed won’t help you read a defense.

  74. sfm073 says: May 2, 2013 1:09 PM

    It’s straight line speed, who cares? Clearly he can’t make cuts like he used to.

  87. jayniner says: May 2, 2013 1:19 PM

    So…..where was all this productive running last year because it surely wasn’t on the field during any games……you know, the time and place that matter most…

  88. nfceastfan says: May 2, 2013 1:20 PM

    Oh yeah! Defenses are going to be scared to death to face the Eagles this year with Mike Vick. Yes sir… Whoops… I just fumbled my coffee.

  89. antalicus says: May 2, 2013 1:21 PM

    If Vick beat him by 5 yards in a 40 yard dash and we assume Vick ran a 4.4 (doubt he did because thats was RG3 ran) then McCoy ran a 4.95. McCoy sucks!

  90. brownsfanincali says: May 2, 2013 1:21 PM

    On behalf of old dudes everywhere, thanks Mike.

  91. redbull986 says: May 2, 2013 1:21 PM

    It’s crazy he still getting older and injury filled holding that high speed. And to win by approxiamate 5 yards in a 40 yard sprint is a lot when the loser ran a high 4.4 40 yard time

  92. lackofabetter says: May 2, 2013 1:23 PM

    He broke a rib though

  93. shayeezy says: May 2, 2013 1:24 PM

    not surprising at all. mccoy ran a 4.5 40 at his pro day. he has more quickness than straight line speed. even if vick has lost a step, he’s still significantly faster.

  94. train58 says: May 2, 2013 1:28 PM

    For me there never was a question about his speed. It’s been his offensive line, if they block for him good things can happen!

  95. salmen76 says: May 2, 2013 1:29 PM

    I love it. Young buck picking on the “old guy” and the old guy kicks his butt. Great stuff. Congrats Mike! Geaux Saints!

  96. butchramz67 says: May 2, 2013 1:35 PM

    Vick must have switched his drug of choice from marijuana to meth. Now if his hands would start sweating glue so he could hold on to the ball the Eagles may be in good shape.

    Vick is still fast, cool. Can he read coverages? Does he flinch at the thought of getting hit?

    Hint:No and Yes are the answers

  100. derrickbrooks4president says: May 2, 2013 1:42 PM

    The 90′s Bucs wrote the book on how to make Vic look like a whipped puppy. Good times.

  101. aneaglesfan says: May 2, 2013 1:43 PM

    now I am concerned that mccoy lost a step or 2.

  102. chawk12thman says: May 2, 2013 1:44 PM

    Mike,

    I wonder if you could explain why he had to ask permission to run from the coach?

  103. scmems07 says: May 2, 2013 1:49 PM

    Vick: hey coach

    Kelly:yea mike

    Vick: I’m kind of nervous, not sure I can win, any advice?

    Kelly:uuuummmmm, got it, just pretend like an angry mob of PETA members are chasing you!

    Vick: you da man coach!

  104. truths4all says: May 2, 2013 1:50 PM

    Take THAT, you young whippersnapper!

    or

    Bottom line, McCoy is proven to be the old, slow man.

  105. damaddhatter29 says: May 2, 2013 1:51 PM

    There’s a defense that prevents Vick from going crazy on the field. Its called cover 2, and Vick doesn’t have much success against it. At least that’s how I remember all his games against the Bears and Bucs.

  109. ilovefoolsball says: May 2, 2013 2:06 PM

    He can move but he can’t move fast enough to get out of the way all the time. Thus he will make a move that will cost him future moves for the rest of the season.

    RGIII take notice. Vick is fast and can throw but he will always be a liability due to the injury factor.

  110. shaunypoo says: May 2, 2013 2:07 PM

    What they aren’t telling you is he now has a pulled muscle.

    Seriously, hit him once and he is going to blow an o-ring this year.

  111. bizmooner says: May 2, 2013 2:10 PM

    GO MICHAEL VICK! I swear people are just serious haters. A QB out runs his star running back in the 40! That’s amazing within itself now add the fact that Vick is 32 is truly amazing and phenomenal!! He’s obviously in top shape and poses a serious threat as a QB in Chip’s exciting offense! People forget that Vick is the only QB in NFL history to rush over a 1,000 yards!!! I can’t wait to see our Eagles back in playoffs again! Watch and see!!!

  112. bcgreg says: May 2, 2013 2:12 PM

    Yeah, he’s still fast, but what made him special was his ability to turn and cut on a dime. Can he still do that? And he’s fragile at this point too. Can’t take a hit.

  113. crubenst says: May 2, 2013 2:12 PM

  114. rgtre10 says: May 2, 2013 2:14 PM

    There are some thing you lose faster then others and depending on your occupation and or your extra curricular activities you can still have your speed at that age, as I recall a similar situation while in the military I had a 20 year old ragging me about being faster we played football and baseball together finally one day before our baseball game I took the challenge me being 33 and being a former track person as well…needless to say I beat him also…so note to all the youngsters becareful of who you call old man…even today being a little older I can say I see a lot of young fellows who are in worse shape than I am…

    I guess that will teach McCoy not to run his mouth without a guarantee that he won’t look foolish. Its pretty bad when you get beat, but when you get beat by an “old man”, its much worse. I hope his teammates and the media rip on him about this throughout the year. RB’s are supposed to be faster than QB’s!

  120. rkt4mayor says: May 2, 2013 2:23 PM

    No one ever said that Vick couldn’t run.

    Vick’s problem is throwing accurately and turning the ball over tons by making poor decisions.

    So, play Vick at half back and start Foles at Quarter Back.

    Problem solved.

  121. nickfoles09 says: May 2, 2013 2:23 PM

    Reports confirm that LeSean McCoy challenged Vick to a passing contest. McCoy owned him.

  122. rg321 says: May 2, 2013 2:27 PM

    This has to be a PR story trying to get the iggle fans excited about Mikey Vicki. If McCoy challenges the race and loses, he either is trying to hype up Vick , or he is just not that fast anymore. Man I can’t wait for the redskins to punish on Monday night!
    Hail

  123. nebster21 says: May 2, 2013 2:31 PM

    Vick all big headed from the win called up RG III and challenged him to a race. RG III accepted and said when I am healed we will race. Vick said no we will race tomorrow or I will tell everyone I won and have my teammates leak who won.

  124. officialgame says: May 2, 2013 2:53 PM

    Safety Colt McCoy tweeted about the race and it had nothing to do with the team. Vick looked a little slow to me last year so he must have been injured. McCoy is a lightning quick cut back type of runner. Fast but not a burner.

    Funny how Eagle fans complained about all the injuries on the O-Line but blame Vick the most for the season. Even funnier is they don’t even mention THAT horrible defense, that “DREAM TEAM”

  126. spharrgcs says: May 2, 2013 2:55 PM

    Legend has it that when in college, McCoy was so proud of his speed and agility that he would taunt potential tacklers who whiffed on him due to his lightning quick elusiveness by whispering ‘McCoy’ into the air as he dodged them. One must wonder if Vick whispered ‘McCoy’ as he was dusting LeSean.

    Would be great if he did, and another great legendary story would be born.

  127. dwarftosser says: May 2, 2013 3:01 PM

    Ha, that’s awesome. Now if only Vick could beat McCoy in a passing competition…

  128. 1trinieagle says: May 2, 2013 3:04 PM

    Funny how Desperate my Eagle brethren continue to hate on Vick hahahahaha…Sounds like many fear that Vick might actually win the starting job, even with the additions of the NON ATHLETIC, Qb types, Foles , and Barkley.

    I wonder if back to back years of being Crushed by 300lb linemen, aided by the Fantastic, Enlightned Play-calling of M.M. or soft WR crew that Disappeared when playing Bigger more physical DB in the game…hmmmm I wonder if that MIGHT have influenced Vicks decision making, or maybe even his accuracy…hmmm NAH… I am sure Brady, Manning,Breese would have taken that beating along with the excellent coaching from the MOST disfunctional coaches under Reid and still comup roses…YEA RIIGGHHTT.

    their teammates went nuts because it was the first time in over a year that either of them went 40yds without getting hurt.

  130. raiderufan says: May 2, 2013 3:18 PM

    I’d love to see the video evidence of said race.

    He beat him by 5 yards in a 40 yard dash? I have a hard time believeing that. McCoy would had to have run a 40 on par with some of the “faster” O-lineman to be beat by a 5 full yards. The difference between 4.30 and 4.50 is about a blink and surely isn’t 5 yards difference.

    When being asked by an Espn reporter about Vicks speed and the race, McNabb was quoted as saying:

    “The boo’ing that I went through at the draft still doesn’t bother me. I swear. Hand to God. Scout’s honor.”

  133. jwil007 says: May 2, 2013 3:36 PM

    1trinieagle gets it…… And I’m not an Eagle fan..The hate is hilarious to me….Chip Kelly barring injury will resurrect his career…

    Eagles Oline was HORRIBLE! If you disagree then you don’t know football! Now lets see what happens this year…

    Be careful wishing for Foles, Dixon or Barkley….Let Vick start out if he tanks THEN make the switch…..

    I like the Eagles but man you all have some crazed fans…BOL!

    speed was never the problem for vick. it was not being a good qb that hurts him. not reading defenses, not getting the ball out in time or fast enough. his speed was the only thing he has that kept him in the nfl this long

  136. granadafan says: May 2, 2013 3:45 PM

    DeSean Jackson should have been in the race. He would have smoked them both.

    Good thing they don’t have to slide across the finish line. Vick would have broken his ribs and gave himself a concussion.

    Maybe they should’ve run the race with a football in their hands. The first person to fumble it loses.

    Again, why are people acting like Vick is soft. He isnt a star but he has a HUGE heart and gets BLASTED over and over and still plays thru the pain.

  147. jangocat says: May 2, 2013 5:59 PM

    Who cares? He still is a turnover machine who cant read a defense or stay healthy. He doesn’t even have the sense to slide at the end of a run. History has proven QB’s win by throwing not running. I’m just surprised shady was acting like such a punk. Maybe because like so many others, he doesn’t respect Vick’s character.

  148. jetsjetsjetsnow says: May 2, 2013 6:22 PM

    Everyone is leaving out the most important part that just as the race got under way a fully recovered Pit Bull snuck in chased Vic down the field….

    You non-Knowledgeable football people kill me! Not one of you “stupid-dummies” mention the sorry a$$ offensive line that couldn’t protect Mike Vick! On top of that, the last time I checked! No QB has won a superbowl without a good O-Line… I didn’t mention the ones with the great O-Line! You pathetic football fans!

  154. drsimester says: May 2, 2013 7:16 PM

    Well for starters, this was supposed to be a fun and entertaining article but for some reason people still find a way to show how narrowminded and clueless they are about the game of football with their “witty” comments. I’m not surprised Vick won, he’s really fast and i bet he could beat a good amount of current rb’s in a 40 yard race. And soft? After some of the hits ive seen Vick take, im shocked to even see him get up sometimes. If Brady or Manning took half of those hits they’d be out for the season. His line was terrible, period. I’d love to see some of these brilliant posters not fumble when being blindsided by a 300lb pass rusher right in the back. Inaccurate? Short memories much? Remember the year before last when Vick absolutely shredded defenses when given time to throw? Probably not. And finally, to all the “super witty” comedian posters who found some of the lamest ways to involve a dog in their comment, get over it, that was years ago and even the media is creative enough to talk about something else. Oh yeah, and you’re not funny in your attempts, you actually know less about comedy than you do about football

  158. usg1 says: May 2, 2013 8:02 PM

    You Vick lovers that keep mentioning how bad the O-line was are the ones that are funny.

    Foles played behind a worse line with less weapons and did better on offense than Vick. They won less with Foles because at that point, the D was giving up an average of 33 points per game.

    Not to mention that you are also forgetting the year before when the line was healthy and he still sucked, or every year he has been in the NFL besides the 8 game stretch in 2010 that he was never a good passer. He has averaged close to a 1.5 turnover per game rate for his career. He has averaged a completion % less than 60% for every year besides 2010. He has averaged less than 7 YPA in most of his years. He could never read a defense.

    Please keep telling me or anyone else though that it was just the bad O-line last year though or the bad coaching/playcalling of Reid/Morhinweg.

    @usg1, Foles didnt exactly tear it up either and they were losing every game with him too. That alone shows that with a bad offensive line, you dont win with any qb. You say people are using poor o-line play as an excuse, but yet in your arguement you use the poor defense as an excuse for them not winning? Nice contradiction btw. Then you say that the year before when he had a good o-line he still sucked? Really? I remember him being considered for potential mvp, comeback player of the year, and consideration for the madden cover. Do “sucky” players ever get considered for any of those? No, i didnt think so either. I also remember that when Mccoy got injured, Bryce Brown came in and had monster games that more than doubled Mccoys output. So does that mean Mccoy sucks? Does that mean Brown should be the starting rb? No. The only thing here that clearly sucks is your logic

  163. lakermetskins says: May 2, 2013 9:45 PM

  164. drsimester says: May 2, 2013 9:50 PM

    In 2010 Michael Vick played in 12 games. In those games he threw for over 3000 yards and had a td/int ratio of 21 to 6 averaging 8.1 yards per attempt with a qb rating of 100.2 while also rushing for just under 700 yards and 9 more td’s and only losing 3 fumbles. The Eagles were 8-3 with Vick as the starting qb. That same year, Vick set multiple franchise records and was selected to the pro-bowl.
    Yeah he sucked alright. I’d take a qb that sucked that bad on my team each and every year. Moron

  165. clk320cpe says: May 3, 2013 9:54 AM

    @choice1329
    That comparison is absolutely ludicrous. It’s racist, bigoted babble.

    @drsimester
    That was ONE year in a extremely disappointing career, he was also 1 & done in the playoffs with a chance to win late & (surprise) was responsible for a game ending turnover. Very few players get the pass he does, especially after 1 good year. He is a lot like Mark Sanchez, actually if you compare their career stats; they are sadly similar with Sanchez having a much better playoff record. Just as you want to tout 2010, I can give you pathetic stats for the rest of his NFL career.

    He is the most over-hyped QB in NFL history. Very few players with the talent he had underachieved as badly as he has. The guy had always had million dollar talent with 10 cents worth of software running it.

    Both McCoy and Vick did nothing in the last meeting when the Giants destroyed the Eagles 42-7. Guess you have to reach for something to be proud of when you’re a fan of a 4-12 team with no rings.

  168. braxtonbill says: May 3, 2013 3:57 PM

    He beat him by 5 yards in a 40 thats 5/40= 1/8 which equals 12 1/2% so if he beat him by 12 1/2%shady ran about a 4.5 than Vick must have ran about a 3.93, not bad for an old man or a cheetah

    The year before was 2011 & yes he did suck. The year you are referring to was 2010. 3 years ago is decades ago in the NFL. Maybe you forget Shawn Alexander, was the league MVP AND on the cover of Madden. One year later, he was out of the league, wasn’t the same player.

    If you take a look at the history of Michael Vick, once he gets the big contract, his play slips. He got that big contract after 2010, going into the 2011 season. And his play turned to sh*t. If you want a guy that gives you 3 bad years, one good year then 2-3 bad years…then Mike Vick is your guy. Consistency has never been a word associated with MV7. But turnovers sure have.

    You know I’m glad that this all they really have to talk about for the Philadelphia eagles because honestly you can’t talk about how good they are or how they’re going to score tons of points. I mean I guess this is an exciting story for eagles fans lmao!!! Hey I know when Vick stops throwing the ball to the other team on purpose maybe then he can call himself a quarterback. All he is and has ever been is nothing more than a glorified running back. I’m sorry eagles fans I really am, but it looks like all the team up there knows how to do is beat themselves. So when they decide to get rid of Vick or bench him maybe you guys would have a chance at a wild card spot in the playoffs because honestly I would put money on Chip Kelly coaching back in college come 2 or 3 years from now. Check his resume and actually think unbiasly and you’ll get my drift. But I wish y’all luck in finally learning how to stop beating yourself and learning how to beat other teams. Worst mistake the Eagles team, not the fans(eagles fans are one of the few group of fans I know that think what the team does gives them merit to say stuff like,” so WE benched so and so or WE cut so and so.” Give me a break), is firing Andy Reid. But he probably got tired of the circus act too.
