Gerry was right. The Philadelphia Eagles lost sight of their moral compass enough to sign Michael Vick yesterday. Even though the Eagles were one of the 26 teams who said they had no interest in Vick, they have clearly given up any pretension to being anything other than desperate.
The NFL Fanhouse site suggests that while this may not have been the worst choice the Eagles could make, Vick is still a very iffy proposition:
This is an experiment. Philadelphia, which could use a third quarterback option after backup Kevin Kolb‘s MRI revealed a sprained MCL in his left knee, is kicking the tires on a used luxury car. And the Eagles’ mechanics better look over this carefully before they make a final decision.
It remains to be seen how the Eagles fans feel about this. I would hope that not a single ticket sells for any Eagles game, home or away.
Professional football is a great game, but there are thugs a-plenty in the NFL already. The last thing it needs is the poster child for such vile behavior.
