Vick on Week 14: 'I'll definitely be out there'

Saying that the Eagles season is "hanging in the balance" would be an insult to all the ornaments dangling periously on our Christmas tree right now, but the Eagles aren't "technically" eliminated, so there's still some hope for 2011, however slim.

Adding to that hope is the fact that Michael Vick says he'll "definitely" return in Week 14 against the Dolphins.

"Yeah, absolutely," Vick told reporters after practice on Monday. "This Sunday I’ll definitely be out there. I feel like I’ve got to be accountable for my team. I want to be there. You know, I just want to get back to doing what I love to do, and that’s playing the game of football. There’s nothing in this world like the game.

"I put my heart and soul into it, man, and I just wish I could have been out there the last three weeks, but it just hasn’t panned out that way. We’ve got to keep our heads up and keep moving in the right direction."

Everything's obviously not all roses in Philly, as the Eagles are 4-8. Plus, Vick says his injured ribs still aren't fully healed.

"I won’t say they’re 100-percent, but we’ve still got a week to go, I get better each and every day," Vick said. "Still working hard in the treatment room to try to get better, but I went out and had a great practice and I feel good."

It doesn't make much sense to bring Vick back unless he's actually ready, but the Eagles have been pretty patient by keeping him on the bench over the past three weeks as they went 1-2 with Vince Young struggling under center.

And while there's no reason to get any hope up about a potential run to the playoffs, it is still possible. All the Eagles have to do is win out (4-0, obviously) and have the Cowboys go 1-3 and the Giants go 2-2.

That scenario is made difficult by the fact that the Cowboys and Giants play each other twice -- someone has to win ... but someone has to lose, too! -- but I suppose weirder things have happened.

'I'll definitely be out there'


Of course that is a quote from Michael Vick but, is everyone really surprised to see or hear that ? I mean really, or you ? Michael Vick, convicted felon who should not even have the privilege of playing in the NFL. Yet he is (sort of) and sitting out for no real reason that i have been able to come up with anyway, at least not the last three weeks. Convicted of dog fighting, ouch that is extremely a vicious and cruel thing to be convicted of. Sick, sick i tell you, why was this guy even wanted back in the NFL ? Who cares if he is out there on the field against the Dolphins the way Miami has been playing it makes no difference anyway. Dolphins defense has been great of late and the offense as well, may as well keep his sick, convicted a** on the bench. Who would care.

Vick on Week 14: 'I'll definitely be out there'

"Absolutely, this Sunday I'll definitely be out there," he said. "I feel like I want to be there for my team, and I just want to get back to doing what I love to do, and that's playing the game of football. There's nothing in this world like it. I put my heart and soul into it, man, and I wish I could have been out there the last three weeks, but it just hasn't panned out that way.

"The last four games are going to be vital for myself and everybody else on this team who considers themselves to be a leader. We have to put our best foot forward and believe in what we're doing and our philosophy. And me being the quarterback of this team, I have to show a tremendous amount of leadership, and that's what I've been born and bred to do. I don't have to think about it. It comes naturally."

Really?

Vick on Week 14: 'I'll definitely be out there'

Vick almost hit the multi-syallable trifecta. He managed "absolutely" and "definitely" in the same paragraph, but failed to touch them all when he omitted "basically". Oh well, he tried.

Vick on Week 14: 'I'll definitely be out there'

So Vick was 3-6 as a starter, VY is 1-2 as a starter.  Maybe I suck at math the win percentages look exactly the same to me.  What exactly is the difference?

Oh, great.  Can't wait to watch him run around in a circle, fumble 3 times, and throw 2 picks

Vick on Week 14: 'I'll definitely be out there'

Now THIS is the kind of leadership I would expect from a convicted felon torturer of dogs.  When the season is on the line and the team desperately needs its $100 million man, he sits out.  When the team has 8 losses and the games are no longer relevant, brag about how "I will be out there."  You asked for it when you signed this bum Philly!
