Michael Vick's Second Chance

Michael Vick amassed just 61 total yards in three quarters of action against the Jets. It’s not easy evading linebackers when you have an electronic bracelet on your ankle.

When I first heard that Michael Vick was coming back to the NFL I thought, “Everyone deserves a second chance.” Then I heard rumors the Eagles were going to pick him up. My reaction was, “Say it isn’t so!” When Andy Reid announced Vick was joining the team, I got mad! “Why did it have to be my team, we don’t need the controversy.”

Now that the season is almost over, I think I realize the Eagles wanted him in Philadelphia: To motivate Donovan McNabb. Donovan realizes he has a competent guy like Vick waiting for a chance to get back in the game and it’s made him play much better this season. Not only that, but Michael has been picking a few rushing yards on key plays for the Eagles.

Maybe it’s not such a bad thing that my team has given Michael Vick a second chance?
