Eagles, Vick a near-perfect match
He had deep regrets over not working hard enough at the quarterback craft during his six-year NFL career, and if he ever got another chance to play in the NFL, he'd work hard to be a good all-around quarterback, not just an electric one. And when he began considering where he might want to play, two other factors came into play. Vick wanted to play in a stable environment with smart coaches teaching a scheme that was successful in today's football. And he didn't care about playing time, at least not immediately. Getting back into a locker room with a solid core of players was more important. Hmmm. Stability. Erasing his past. Smart offensive scheme. Unconcerned about playing time.
That's why the signing of Vick by the Eagles Thursday night makes more sense than Vick to almost anywhere else. Coach
This is a great segue to Vick's second career. What I'd be a concerned about is the effect the signing will have on
