Just remember where you heard it first.
Think about it: A bidding war between Daniel Snyder and Jeffrey Lurie is an even bigger mismatch than Kendall Grove vs. Ross Pointon on TUF 3 was - plus Snyder is a real radic-lib, so he'll go after Vick full bore.
And I actually hope it happens. Vick is nothing but a lily-livered choke-artist. Washington can have him so far as I'm concerned.
Just remember where you heard it first.
You don't think Danny Boy will pursue him?
And don't forget that any new collective bargaining agreement is going to include a salary cap; and the Eagles would be a lot better off using the cap room they'd save by going with Kevin Kolb at quarterback on the offensive line, linebacking and secondary help they so obviously and desperately need.
Not sure where he will end up, but Vick only stays an Eagle if he values the Eagles team over money. No way does Lurie match free agency money for Vick with Kolb in the bullpen.
Franchise tag will keep Vick in Philly.
Hard to see the Eagles paying the $16 million plus the franchise tag will bring to Vick for one season with Kolb on the bench.
When has one of these running backs with a jersey number lower than 20 ever won a Super Bowl?
And please, don't hand me Doug Williams in '87 - it was a strike-shortened season with one game canceled and scabs playing three other games, plus Williams was benched twice in favor of Jay Schroeder during the course of that season.
With the cap space they'd save by letting Vick leave, the Eagles can sign Michael Bush, who is an unrestricted free agent, and also get three or four new guys for their front seven who couldn't moonlight as bantamweight MMA fighters, not to mention a center and an offensive tackle.
I think the Skins have a better chance of getting Kolb than Vick. Or maybe the Skins might stick with Grossman and try to develop a young QB. Who knows, I just think it's kinda wrong the way they played it out with McNabb
Daniel Snyder will sign Michael Vick - or die trying.
No they will not sign VICK. He doesn't fit Kyle Shannahan system. Additionally...Mike Shannahan will not pull off such a move. Snyder has step away from making FA moves due to Shanny complete command over it.
But if Bud Adams can choose Vince Young over Jeff Fisher as he is going to do, why wouldn't Daniel Snyder choose Michael Vick over either or both Shanahans if it came to that?
Because the DC fan base wants a long term coach. Yes...Shanny has been a debacle with his handling of McNabb and Haynesworth. But the DC fan base does not want Snyder involve in FA or draft anymore. He has been a disaster for the last 10 years attempting to put ALL STAR football teams. Once again...VICK does not fit into the Shanny system of play.
Vick might not fit the Shanny system of play, but Vick will sell a hell of alot more jerseys and tickets than Shanahan. And just look how much prime air time the Eagles have had on TV this year. Hell the Eagles Vikings game was flexed to prime time, with the VIkings out of the playoff race and Favre injured. Money talks, and Vick is money right now.
Once again...who is the GM? Bruce Allen/Shanny. Unless Snyder gets the itch to fire the entire staff...then those guys will not pull for Vick.
AnthonyBrancato - But if Bud Adams can choose Vince Young over Jeff Fisher as he is going to do, why wouldn't Daniel Snyder choose Michael Vick over either or both Shanahans if it came to that?
Titans owner Bud Adams announced Wednesday that the team will move forward without Vince Young on the roster.
Waylay - Hard to see the Eagles paying the $16 million plus the franchise tag will bring to Vick for one season with Kolb on the bench.Isn't most of Kolb's salary paid up?
What do you think the Eagles do with Vick? Any extension I see the Eagles giving him would have to be like a top 3QB salary since Vick could probably get that on the open market. I can't imagine you guys letting him hit the open market though.
LOL @ REdskins in general...as long as SNyder doofus is in charge of that franchise they will go NOWHERE and Vick will get killed with that sloppy 0-line they have had plms with since their last Superbowl back in 92
