Michael Vick is having a pretty bad week. He made some comments that were kind of blurred and seems like some officials at the NFL steered him towards the Philadelphia Eagles, and taken a certain way could lead to a tampering charge against the league itself.
Then is the Eagles second pre-season game, he went out and threw three INT’s in one half of play. How significant any of this is pretty debatable, but it certainly is a sharp turnaround from well rehabbed Vick we have seen in public afterwards.
Thus, in an interview with GQ Vick made some remarks on the need for better ways to start with other teams. In particular, he mentioned the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals as a team, we came to him and start from day one. I think it was an important decision for Vick. He played on some guiding him to the Eagles.
We do not know if these people worked for the league, if one of them was Tony Dungy, the rehabilitation Vick, or anyone else helped. Ultimately it can not at all important, but probably not something Vick.
Vick then took the fight against the Pittsburgh Steelers and went 5-12 for 47 yards and three picks in about half of play. Worse than the Steelers offense takes the ball for 23 minutes in the first half, the Eagles defense could not be seen from the field on third down, and the Dream Team is known as the NFL is anything but. As important as this is debatable, but one thing seems clear, the Eagles need to work on the offensive line, or this dream team is going nowhere.
