During the game between the defending champion Pittsburgh Steelers and last year’s contender, the Arizona Cardinals, it was announced that the Philadelphia Eagles have ended the suspense about the football future of Michael Vick. Interestingly, I haven’t written a word about this issue on this site in a very long time. Today, I decided to say a few words based on the reports from former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy that a signing was imminent. Vick has a chance to do some things — and he won’t be under any “special” pressure to perform. The Eagles already have a Super Bowl caliber offense, a Pro Bowl QB and a rabid fan base that boos everyone in sight.
I guess they can go ahead and finish taping that “60 Minutes” episode. This is going to be a hot topic for awhile. Don’t be surprised if you see lots of Michael Vick in January and February as the Eagles make a deep playoff run to Super Bowl XLIV.
