The end for Vick?

After this weekend, the immediate football future of Michael Vick grew murkier. [Vick] may have played his last game for the Eagles. If so, it was a fitting and, quite frankly, sad end to his tenure as quarterback. After yet another Eagles loss, a concussed Vick walked nimbly through the locker room with head trainer Rick Burkholder keeping ever so close. Vick appeared woozy, although it would be presumptuous to say he will not play Sunday at Washington. Last season, Vick suffered a concussion against the Falcons and still played the following week. But when he walked out of the locker room and through the corridor that rings the inside of Lincoln Financial Field, Vick stopped for a moment and Burkholder had to grab his hand and turn him toward an exit.

Jackson was 'asking for the moon'

Another installment of a Phil Jackson era won't be happening. Jackson was the overwhelming favorite to return to the Lakers until they heard his informal demands, which included a stake in team ownership, according to a person familiar with the situation. "He was asking for the moon," said the person, who also declined to be identified because they are not authorized to discuss the situation. The Lakers then moved quickly to sign [Mike D'Antoni]. ... Earlier Sunday, Lakers guard Steve Nash said it would "be a coup" for the Lakers to bring back Jackson, but he also had kind words for D'Antoni. "Obviously, I think everyone knows how much I love Mike," said Nash, who played four seasons and won two MVP awards under D'Antoni in Phoenix. (Los Angeles Times) Comment

Valentine's next stop: An MLB post?

Though turfed by the Red Sox, Bobby Valentine remains a busy man. Like him or detest him, no one can dismiss Valentine's passion for pitching in to society, be it workers for and victims of 9/11, to victims of Sandy's tragic fury, to foundations around the country. Has time separated him from baseball in 2013? Maybe. But as Bud Selig has wisely reached out and utilized Frank Robinson, Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and other giants of the game, he ought to bring Valentine into his circle. He will raise issues from a different lens. ... He can be a leader in the myriad of social issues and programs Selig tries to address. Put him in the room with Mark Shapiro, Torre, La Russa and the others in Selig's special committee, and he will make people think. (MLB.com) Comment
