What's the over/under on how many quarters until Vick is back on the DL?

Oh man. These jokes get better and better. It reminds me of when Mike Vick was running a dog-fighting ring, torturing and killing dogs, LOL. The pictures of what happens when you make dogs fight to the death is a little different than this little Mad Libs "add dog joke" Vick headline:

I am by no means saying I am burning with hatred or anything, but how is a guy supposed to move on with his life after prison when people make dog jokes as if the mistake he made was actually as funny as Brett Favre sending a picture of Little Brett to a girl? Dog fighting just isn't funny. It's awful.

Fark putting dog-fighting related headlines up about Michael Vick serve to remind us all what a miserable human being Michael Vick is.

Also lighten up, Francis.

This Looks Fun: Brett


I interpret the constant dog-fighting "jokes" in reference to Vick as more of a cynical but warranted (at least from the perspective of the submitter) reminder of his past crimes as opposed to an attempt to make light of them. Since it's the internet, you're not cool if you directly bawwww over something in the past without some attempt at humor mixed in.

One of the truly over hyped stories of the preseason. Was there anyone who thought Kelly was going to start with Foles? He ain't playing until Vick goes down with the inevitable injury in Week 7.

Does Dever have a defense anymore taking in consideration the FA that left in the offseason + the injured ones + the suspended ones?

Valid point.   however, I was thinking more like trying to keep up with Manning's offense and trying to make some things happen with his legs  - this has always been Vick's downfall.

Treygreen13:Also lighten up, Francis.

I think what bothers me the most is that it's an uncreative headline about a nonstory. People aren't even trying and because it falls in the "loldogfighting" we push it up without bothering to wonder if it's worth looking at or discussing. I say it is not.

Mr. Manning is gonna have to throw five TD passes a game to make up for what's happening on defense.  Things keep getting worse for Von Miller - new shiat every day.  At this point, I would not be shocked if it turns out he is the Green River Killer.

Here is the problem with that line of thinking:  Up until very recently in parts of the country cock fighting & dog fighting were pretty normal pastimes.  I'm 35 and I've been to several cockfights when I was a kid.  Some of my friends raised fighters.  These have been normal past times for hundreds if not thousands of years.  If you are raised in these cultures they do not seem "awful" they seem normal.  We still have tribes that perform scarification, sharpening of teeth, piercings, etc that I easily consider awful.  But I have to remind myself they have been doing these things for much longer than I have been alive or our country has even existed and it has not caused their societies to become extinct.  Why is "my way" better?  And even if my way is better why should I condemn someone who has just chosen to follow in their tradition that has obvious longevity when they are having no impact on my way of life?

skinink: Enjoy your 8-8 season, Eagles fans.



After last season, 8-8 would be an improvement.
Actually I'm thing more like 7-9. The offense I think will be really good (the running game in particular). The defense is suspect. The special teams... should be better.
I was personally rooting for Foles, but the way the pre-season has gone, Vick was the obvious choice. But if Vick stays true to form, Vick will have trouble reading defenses more complicated than the cover 2, and Foles will earn the starting job.

I'd be thrilled with 8-8.


If they manage 6-10 and end the season with either Foles or Barkley looking promising as a starter I'll judge it a complete success.  Vick needs to go- whatever you think of him, he's 33, he has injury problems and it's questionable if he can ever be great without resorting to athleticism over tactics.  The Eagles need at least two seasons to rebuild from scratch; it's not like they need an aging star to carry them on one last SB run.

As I said in a thread last week (worst to first thread) Eagles will be lucky to get to 6-10, 4-12 is a much more likely outcome.

Switch to a 3-4 defense without the personnel to make it work? Yea, that'll work out great. No nose tackle means teams will run all over this defense, throw in bums at safety and it gets ugly quick.

Because despite what their publicists or insipid sports "journalists" would want us to think for some things public figures should be ridiculed, if for no other reason than to show impressionable people that there are some things you just DON'T do, no matter how much money you have.

It's why Barry Bonds will get made fun of for steroids for ever, why the internet won't let Ray Lewis fans forget he was at least an accessory to murder, that Michael Vick tortured dogs and had them kill each other.

I think the difference is that Vick actually served time for his wrong-doing.  I guess lots of people think he should've gotten the death penalty for it.

I think the problem is that a lot of people in the sports media world are willing to gloss over the entire thing because he's popular and throws a football a long way and most people don't think that's fair considering if an 18 year old was caught doing this in his garage he would have trouble finding a job for the rest of his life.

You all have heard the joke about the Irish/Scot guy, in his cups at the tavern, complaining about not being called Carpenter or Bridge Builder, or Architecht, but 'you screw one goat'....

...

Yea. As bad as the jokes are now, and they're pretty horrible....Vick will forever be the goat farker / dog killer. Some things you just don't get out from under, kinda like a 'rape stand' where you're beaten and electrocuted into submission to be force-bred against your will or killed for not being savage enough.

Foles will earn it after the customary Vick injury in Week 9, and I think the offense will be geared to let him hang onto it for the remainder of the season. Excited to see Damaris on special teams, defense can only go up with additions of Williams and Phillips in the secondary (and subtractions of Asomugha and DRC). Should be an interesting season, but for the mouthrbeather who meant it as an insult, 8-8 is wildly optimistic.

I saw a great article about how if Chip can get six or seven wins with this team that'll at least prove his system can work at the NFL level. If that happens he'll have better chances at getting free agents, as well as keep UFAs who are on the team already.

I can't say I disagree. The Patriots already use a similar system, and Kelly and Hoodie are friendly, so I'll be surprised if he washes out. As much as I hate to say it, but the Patriots have found ways to make something remotely close work.

I think they've got enough pass rushers to be dangerous, and Sopoaga should at least be enough to keep things from being hopeless.
But I think the offense will keep them in enough games that they'll do better than last year.
Unless they keep getting hit by the injury bug.
 
2013-08-20 08:23:07 PM
The Eagles should sign Aaron Hernandez. If they let dog killer play there, they will sign anyone.
