Vick will put hamstring through final test on Friday

Football players rarely run 100 yards during a game.  When they do, it’s either because something very good is happening — or because something very bad is happening.

For Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, his ability to run 100 yards on Friday will be very good for the Eagles.

Unless something bad happens while he’s doing it.

“I’m going to run 100 yards as fast as I can, and try to cut, try to make some subtle movement in the pocket and just see what happens,” Vick said after Thursday’s practice, via Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com.

“I’m ready to get to it.  I’m ready to get it out of the way,” Vick said. “I’m ready to just get it over with.  I’ve been throwing every day, just trying to keep my arm in shape, keep my mind mentally in football.  But I really want to get out there and sprint and run.  This is part of the process.”

Running full speed could aggravate the injury.  If it doesn’t, Vick will be ready to go on Sunday against the Giants, and Eagles fans will surely hope he gets to run 100 yards with the ball during the game.

More importantly, Eagles fans surely will hope they get to see a win in person for the first time since the last time the Giants came to Philly, nearly 400 days ago.

    Adrian Peterson says running for 100 yards a game is “easy”. All you have to do is gain 25 yards a quarter. That’s not too hard, is it? Even with a gimpy hamstring?

    @logicalvoices

    RGIII “wants to be” Vick, RGIII had ONE good year and played a new style that fooled a few defenses, completed some passes downfield, ran for some yards and CONSEQUENTLY broke down his body that he is just now getting back in the neighborhood of where he was last year…..Vick has been out for sure with his own injuries but also played 126 regular season and 6 playoff games….lets let RGIII get halfway there before we call him anything compared to Vick…..and I am Bears fan who got torched by RGIII last week

    Vick is the real deal, RGIII is a one-hit wonder thus far

    The stadium was emptying halfway through the 4th, down only 2 scores. Most mediocre fans in sports.

    “I am Bears fan who got torched by RGIII last week”

    You act as if torching the Bears is an uncommon thing.

    I thought that dogs who were injured were…

    Yes, because Vick has had soooooo much success.

    The final test is running from a pack of rabid angry Pitbulls.

    Eli has a ring for each of them if they want to borrow one. The SBMVP Escalades (plural!), those are his. No borrowing them.
