    This is disgusting. I've been following it for weeks. I've got nothing to say. I just wonder if they could've found a way to keep him. I think there is likely more that we don't know yet.

    Yea, ties to gangs, homicides, etc. were so bad that the Eagles didn't feel right about trading these problems to another team.

    They tried hard to trade him and I would hope they used integrity when doing so. His agent claims other teams have inquired about him. If that's true then it would mean that the Eaglez didn't really need to dump him but chose that path because he didn't get along with Kelly and was a negative in the locker room as well. They said they didn't want him influencing the new players.

    I really doubt he is doing crimes or drugs. I think he's immature and believes hanging with that type of crowd makes him look cool. I guess being an NFL star isn't enough for him. Idiot needs to grow up.

    At Desean? The Eagles?

    I think, I'm more pissed at the Eagles. Seems like maybe Kelly's ego was involved. But why didn't other teams want to trade? WS it his contract when they could get him cheaper?

    What other info is out there?

    Pissed at the Eagles. Yes he's a punk but we just let him go for NOTHING! We got nothing for our #1 receiver???
    I'm guessing there's more that we don't know, that's the only reason I can come up with that makes any sense.

    Vick doesn't have the financial situation to do anything macho.

    He wants to be the one on the bottom. But who cares?

    I only care about what he is doing between 1 o'clock and 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoons.

    He has not committed any crimes that we are aware of. Whether he is sinner or a saint does not matter when he is on the football field.

    What were the Eagles trying to prove? Unless more pertinent information comes out the Eagles look like idiots. I could have stuck with the Lions if they are going to do this stuff.


    Mark Sanchez? Wtf??

    I feel bad for you since you liked this guy...and now he's gone.
    He reminds me of Ndamukong in the fact that both are lightening rods for controversy.
    My guess is that this move shows that there is a new sheriff in town.
    I never woulda considered a Sanchez for Vick Swap as an upgrade.
    Your new coach does though...

    I bet Vick can't beat out Smith. Not for $4M per he can't. Maybe $8m.

    This move is nearly unprecedented on professional sports. Dumping a 3 time pro bowl player coming off a career year.

    Word finally comes out he was a uber selfish, disruptive Prima Donna. Not one of his teammates spoke up on his behalf or blamed the coach.desean was the guy who would only celebrate his own touchdowns. Didn't matter if the Eagles lost as long as he got his he was happy . Yeah, they lost a huge weapon but obviously they tbought the cons outweighed the pros with this tool. This draft is loaded with receivers do maybe they won't need to waste a first round pick to replace him

    Good riddance. His skill set was unique. The Eagkes get a first place schedule which includes the Panthers, Packers, and 49ers. Oh, almost forgot the Seahawks. Ugh. The league will be ready for them.getting ten wins again maybe asking too much. Right now I'm thinking

    Just for fun knowing the dates of the games or taking the draft of injuries into account.

    Home :
    Seattle-loss
    St Louis-win
    Tenessee-win
    Dallas -win
    Washington-win
    Giants-win
    Carolina-win
    Jacksonville-win

    Away
    Dallas-loss
    Giants-win
    Washington-win
    49ers-loss
    Houston-win
    Colts-loss
    Packers-loss
    Arizona-loss

    It will be fun/ embarrassing to look back when the season ends.

    So right now in saying 10-6 and NFC East champs. but that may be optimistic. I reserve the right to adjust this later.
