I just watched Eagles Live from last week, Spadaro mentioned that if we pay the $3 Million (which is likely) and then cut Vick, then another team signs him to a $2.5 Million contract, the Eagles only take a $500,000 hit. Not $3 Million. If someone signs him for $3,000,000.01 then the Eagles aren't on the hook for anything at all.

So just a warning if this "deadline" passes and he's not cut. it's a no brainer to let the $3 Million "deadline" pass with no action.

I think we will take the 3M hit and then let him go and a team will definitely sign him for over that, so we are gonna eat that damage. Better than 15M though.

I wouldn't go as far and say he wasn't a very good QB.

His laziness coupled with nobody really knew how to use him properly really hindered his development. I'm sure if he was drafted now with the Read Option and Pistol emerging, he would be tearing it up cause he craps all over Kaepernick athletic wise.

It's all about schemes and work ethic.

And yes if you over-analyze that 2010 season, it wasn't the most amazing ever because we beat up on **** teams but look at our options Kolb or Vick. We tried to rebuild without actually going into full blown rebuilding mode and it bit us in the ass so here we are.

You still need to be smart and make intelligent decisions in the read option or pistol. And also the ability to be durable. A literal 2 turnover per game average shows that Vick is not smart and we all know the poor decisions he makes. He sucks, cut him whenever the time is right for the team and be done with this "experiment"

Wonder if we'd make a claim on Rainey. 4th on waivers.

Keeping VIck would LITERALLY be the exact same mindset as keeping Reid for so long. We've seen Vick; we know what he is. The honeymoon is over.

Then, WHY THE HELL is there still a subset of people who want to "see" how Vick can do in yet another offense? Seriously. It's over. We held on for Reid for way to long, and no we are going to hold on to Vick for way to long.

If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.

I know trading up wouldn't be wise but god dammit I want to trade up for Star Lotulelei. If they're going 3-4 they need this guy. And Oakland has the worst front office in the league, there has be a way to fleece them for the #3 pick.
