I think it's pretty ridiculous that we had to hear about and see all the coverage and lead-up to his "debut", yet they chose to broadcast the damn Dolphins-Bucs game instead of the Philly one. Retards.

Slow: Well, that was a bad idea because jamming the turd back in caused the gas behind it to back up and just about the time I went in for what probably would have been the thrust that got the turd out of my way, the gas exploded. It shot my dick and the turd out like a rocket. Now, if getting your dick explosively expelled from your chick's ass and then getting hit in the gut with a flying turd doesn't make your dick soft, you're a better man than I am.

Vick looks like he is ready to play. I bet a lot of teams are gonna try to pick him up next year if he continues to do well.

Minnesota is having terrible PR with their addition of Brett Favre. He is just a cancer on football teams now and should stay retired.

I think as long as Vick can stay with Tony Dungy he will finally straighten out. Granted he grew up in the hood, was given a vt ride to play ball, and had no guidence ever. He finally has it

He will be a great addition to any NFL team, never going to be the best QB but deff an amazing athlete. Hope him the best with his football career, could care less about his life other than that.

As far as Brett Farve who was PREVIOUSLY my favorite player growing up. Roger needs to make his next retirement contract permanent. Brett Farve self destructed his image, career, and past achievments.


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

True nytard, but it looks like the speed of the game isn't overwhelming him again. That is the biggest adjustment

you forgot to mention the one that went for like 9 yards and a first down

He was set up to take 5-10 snaps, he took 6

I am not sayin he came out and ran for a touchdown

But he came out and did his thing and showed the world that he still can hang with the NFL, good for him

Can't wait till they play the Redskins

I agree. I hold nothing against the guy, I'm glad he's back in the league. I however do not like the Eagles or all of the media hype.

Vick tackles could help shelters
By John Barr
ESPN.com

Philadelphia -- A Philadelphia-area animal shelter is determined to proceed with its unusual Michael Vick marketing campaign, despite the recently signed quarterback's public appearance Tuesday, and despite the Eagles' pledge to enact a broad-based campaign to fight animal cruelty.

Bill Smith, CEO and founder of Main Line Animal Rescue, told ESPN Tuesday that he plans to take out an advertisement in Wednesday's Washington Post.
The ad, a copy of which has been sent to ESPN, the Eagles and various national animal rights groups, reads:

"Attention Football Fans. Philadelphia is playing Washington on October 26th.
"Every time Michael Vick is tackled during the game, Main Line Animal Rescue will donate 5 bags of dog food to your local animal shelter."

A subhead on the advertisement reads:
"Because there are no second chances on an empty stomach."

"We feel guilty sending Michael Vick to these other cities," Smith said.
"Maybe it's our way of apologizing for bringing Michael Vick on our team."

The advertisements will appear in the local newspapers of other cities the Eagles visit, Smith said.
Washington was selected as the first city to launch the ad campaign before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement to re-instate Vick in Week 3, Smith said.

The NFL had no comment. An Eagles spokeswoman, in an email, said that she was unaware of the plans for the upcoming ad and did not offer a comment.
Smith, who attended a recent meeting between members of the Eagles front office and Philadelphia-area animal welfare groups, says he'll also move forward with plans to place billboard advertisements near Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles' home stadium.
Smith originally told ESPN those billboards would have a strong anti-Vick message, but he has since toned down his rhetoric.

Smith told ESPN Tuesday that he is now planning to put up billboards that will raise public awareness of animal cruelty.

"There's really nothing we can do about Michael Vick being in Philadelphia," Smith said. "But I thought this would be a good way to come up with a solution where we could help a few dogs."

Main Line Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter near Valley Forge, Pa., takes in more than 1,000 dogs a year, according to Smith.

Everyone likes to self promote. Chances are Vick will barely see the field more then a few snaps a game at best until McNabb gets hurt. So, they might not be donating much dog food, probably spent way more on the ad then what they will give.

What ever happened to Vick's brother? Oh yeah, he's still getting in trouble.
