Is This a Make-or-Break Season for Michael Vick?

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIIAugust 29, 2012

Michael Vick is about to begin his fourth season in Philadelphia. Some are wondering if it could be his last.

Vick still has to live up to that six-year, $100 million contract. He can't stay healthy, and he now might have competition under center, after the great preseason Nick Foles has enjoyed.

Plus, Vick is due $15 million next season. If Foles plays well in the games that Vick will inevitably miss this season, does Vick stay around for 2013?

The defense improved significantly in the offseason, improving through the draft and free agency. In fact, the Eagles might have the best front seven in the entire NFL. This is not a team that should be missing the playoffs two years in a row.

And if they do, the hammer will inevitably fall. Andy Reid is currently the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL, a distinction that would certainly be in jeopardy if the Eagles were to spend another January at home. And some Eagles fans might be wondering why he hasn't been fired already.

National lead writer Dan Levy and I make our "make-or-break" cases for Michael Vick in our latest video debate.
