Originally, I was going to write part two of my examination of Nyjer Morgan today, but some actual news happened. So I'm going to go ahead and put that on the back burner for now.
Michael Vick has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
I'll let that sink in for a moment.
Of all the teams you thought of this offseason where Vick would possibly sign (and you know you thought of them), can anyone among us honestly say that Philadelphia topped the list?
Obviously, this raises a few questions.
Do the Eagles plan to adopt a wildcat now? Will Vick and their actual QB—Donovan McNabb—ever be on the field at the same time? Have the Eagles given any thought to some sets with Vick as a WR?
But some more important questions are raised, too. Do the Eagles really only consider Vick a backup? Or is he a successor?
It's a well-established fact that, despite being one of the best QBs in the league, for some reason McNabb is not a popular guy in Philadelphia. McNabb and coach Andy Reid have had their back-and-forths before
Perhaps the Eagles see this as their way to get McNabb out of Philly. After week six, when Vick is eligible to play again, could McNabb possibly be traded? Would the Eagles feel comfortable with Vick as their guy and Kevin Kolb as their backup?
These questions will take some time to answer, but one thing is for sure. Donovan McNabb can't be feeling good about his future in the city of brotherly love right now.
