wow, did no one in the eagles' organization speak to the falcons? Thank you Philadelphia, for taking away our garbage!

Sorry, but you have to learn the hard way: VICK IS A LOSING ENTiTY, REGARDLESS OF WHAT COLOR #7 Jersey he dons!

yeah, the writers are haters; everyone is a hater. Jealous of his millions owed, his high intellect, and his great oratory skills! Or maybe it is those rugged good looks(sarcasm), and his herpes.

yeah, when you have the Drew Brees', tom Brady's and aaron rogers,(yet no "haters" there.) I think those guys have alot to be envious about; vick is a joke,and we are laughing at him and you.

Only a true subhuman, would want to emulate mike vick. Oh and have you seen his baby's mamas'??? damn, he should have fought them!

Digging up month old posts to cover your lies now ? That's the weakest move you've made so far. And that's saying a lot.

month old? relevant post season(2011)chatter ABOUT THE FUTURE OF VICK AS continuing QB. Along with many others, Fierro thinks he cannot improve or change his insane "superman" style of playing. Told you!!! narcissist, low intellect QBs don't change, they just get dumber and lose more games. Very relevant, since you and gayboy are the only ones who think he can learn from his "mistakes." OR DO YOU ???????
You keep asking for proof of his crappy mediocre ability, well here it is(along with lots of similar articles.)
where you going to hide, when the vicksh$t hits the fan in phila?

p.m. EST, January 2, 2012 for your reading pleasure!
PHILADELPHIA By the end of Donovan McNabb's long run as quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, the team felt it needed a more aggressive offensive field general, one not as afraid of making a mistake as McNabb, who owns one of the NFL's lowest all-time interception rates.

Problem is, Vick has slowly become the anti-McNabb, with an all-too-cavalier attitude toward turnovers as being inevitable and often unavoidable.
We saw it last season, when Vick in the closing minute of a tight playoff game against Green Bay tossed a hurried, ill-advised and underthrown pass down the left sideline toward a well-covered rookie receiver who had just nine career receptions at the time.
Tramon Williams intercepted it for the Packers without any resistance from Riley Cooper, enabling them to preserve their five-point lead on their way to a Super Bowl championship.
The first-down throw was an unnecessary risk that Vick, despite all his experience, either did not recognize or was temporarily blinded to by an adrenaline overload.
Either way, there was a lesson that needed to be learned there.
Alas, it wasn't.
The Eagles, with Vick continuing this season to toss the ball opponents' way like it's a live grenade, haven't sniffed the playoffs since.
Vick is too reckless, too unrealistic about the limitations of his prodigious talent. Unless head coach Andy Reid, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and quarterbacks coach Doug Pederson can get him to dial it down, they can forget ever being as successful as they were with McNabb, whose 92-49-1 regular-season record and 9-7 postseason record was not good enough to keep him in town.
Vick, by the way, is 15-9 in regular-season games as an Eagles starter and 0-1 in the playoffs. This is with better, more experienced offensive talent all around him than McNabb ever had.

In Sunday's game, for example, the interception he underthrew into double coverage and the strip sack in which he lost the ball deep in Eagles' territory were both on him. Vick had plenty of time to throw the ball away on both plays.
Getting him to recognize the effect he's had on this team's non-playoff run would be a start, because after Sunday's win, Vick sounded as if he had no clue.
"I think a majority of my interceptions came from tipped balls. I don't think our season was decided based on the interceptions that I threw. But there is no mistaking the underlying message that he simply does not understand the importance of avoiding turnovers and the magnitude of his many errors in judgment.
Every time Vick tries to play Superman and forces the football into closed spaces or exposes himself to injury by refusing to slide, he moves the Eagles further away from the playoffs. This is true especially on the days when he makes most of those plays work for him, because it creates more of a comfort zone for him to stray further across that line to a place where ultimate victory is impossible.

But make no mistake: if Vick doesn't play at least a little more conservatively, the Eagles likely will never make it back to the playoffs, much less advance in them.
To facilitate this, maybe the Eagles need to bring in a free-agent backup who knows how to do it the other way. Someone like, say, Donovan McNabb.

I for one rememember that playoff game against the Packers..Vick coming off his best season ever lost that game right at the end..all of his own doing..of course when the pressure was on..he just can't handle pressure..he forgets football is a team game, not his personal game..throwing the interception in the end zone..I'm pretty sure the Turd Bird and the gayback don't remember that game..Turd was too busy eating donuts and Gayback Rattler was busy buying those GOOD STRONG CONDOMS..

I for one remember that game well..Vick coming off his best season ever blows that playoff game throwing the interception in the end zone..of course he was under pressure..and close game down to the wire..he will usually blow it..he forgets football is a team game and not his personal game..I'm pretty sure Turdy and gayback rattler don't remember that game as Turdy was probably busy eating donuts and gayback was probably out buying those GOOD STRONG CONDOMS!
