Premature to make predictions about Vick’s future

A year ago at this time, many believed that Mike Vick would not return to the Eagles.  In February, he did.

This year, many believe that Vick won’t return to the Eagles.  For now, it’s simply too early to know what will happen.

Vick’s first priority will be to find a starting job.  If he can’t, the question becomes whether he’d be willing to return to Philly as the backup to Nick Foles.

It’s a possibility we’ve been musing about for a couple of months.  Vick publicly has professed his love for Philadelphia; if he’s not going to be a starter anywhere, why not be the backup in Philly?

It was, is, and will be a possibility for Vick.  But it’s too early to make any definitive predictions about Vick’s future.  He wants to start, he’ll choose starting over being a backup, and he’d be crazy to not consider returning to Philly as a backup if no other team is willing to give him anything other than a backup job.

    No chance vick starting ever again. Backup at best maybe even 3rd stringer. But he may be good mentor to a young QB.

    He has Raiders or Jaguars written all over him.

    Mike the gimmick Vick, fooling the masses for 12 years now.

    Yeah I think he stays with the Eagles. It could be costly or risky or complicated to bring him to a new team, and Philadelphia doesn’t have those same concerns, thus it seems more efficient and probable for him to remain with the team.

    But all it takes is one GM to decide that Vick belongs somewhere else!

    Any GM/Coach that brings Vick in as a starter has to be desperate. You probably won’t even reach an 8-8 record with Vick at the helm, and who needs the distractions?

    Imagine if Vick ran the read option with ATL. It would have been epic to watch, but he literally may be dead at this point.

    I’m pretty sure you were one of the people saying Vick was gone. Vick, RG3, and my team’s qb Kapernick continue to show that an NFL qb must be a throwing qb first and formost. Then, if they can also run, well then you might have something. Even then you gotta be worried about the hits and injuries.
