Full story: Courier-Post
Eagles coach Andy Reid wouldn't commit to putting quarterback Michael Vick on the active roster for the final two games even though he has been cleared to play after suffering a concussion Nov. Full Story

I hope like hell they do put the dog killer in for at least 3 reasons. One, it'll increase his chances of suffering a career ending injury or at least another significant injury. I don't enjoy seeing anyone injured, but if they deserve it, and no one deserves it anymore than this depraved bastard, it can't come too soon for me.

Two, if they put the felon back in, he will at a minimum continue to demonstrate how ineffective he is and, in effect, worsen his potential and chances for duping another NFL team into signing him if and when the Eagles let him go.

Three, it will further demonstrate how the walrus talks out of both sides of his mouth. He has already said that even when vick is healthy and returns that Foles will remain the starter.

Of course I'm opting for #1, but I'm a little biased. LMGDAO

1. "Activated" has nothing to do with playing. There have been times where players are active and don't even dress for the game.
2. Even if he does get in, which would definitely be in an injury situation, no owner will be stupid enough to base any kind of future earnings on the way he'll perform in the last 2 games after 9 int and 10 fumbles in 9 games.
3. Reid is NEVER going to start him, unless his goal is getting fired and making himself look bad at a time when he's going to be looking for a new job. I very much doubt that Lurie is allowing him any say in that matter anyway.

Vick is a 3rd string back-up at best. Andy Reid and Vick will both be gone in a few weeks.
