Eagles, Vick not talking new contract yet

Even given the low end of guaranteed money that Donovan McNabb scored from the Redskins recently ($3.5 million), there's a market-value argument that Michael Vick, if he were to receive a new contract, deserves to get eleventy billion dollars a lot of money.

And while starting negotiations immediately after Vick's record-setting night against the Redskins Monday would be a bit foolish -- like buying Apple stock right after they announced they've got the Beatles in iTunes (Wait, it made the stock drop? Awkward.) -- you would think Philly would be at least interested in talking long-term cheddar with Vick. But they haven't.

"Not yet," Vick said via Philly.com. "We haven't started any negotiations. We are just taking it 1 week at a time. If it's going to happen, it will happen. I don't think it will take long when negotiations do start, if they ever start."

Vick, who became the first quarterback since Randall Cunningham in 1998 to win back-to-back Offensive Player of the Week awards, also mentioned that he can "look down the road for the long haul and see what [the Eagles] can accomplish."

So, clearly, he likes Philadelphia, and he should -- Andy Reid took a chance on him (when no one else would) and turned him into a legitimate MVP candidate with serious pocket passer skills (once thought impossible).

Now, the Eagles can franchise Vick, at least as of right now -- if the franchise tag disappears once/when/if a new CBA is negotiated, Philly would be in a bit of trouble if they hadn't reached an extension with Vick.

They know this, and because of the success he's had, don't expect to see Reid and the Eagles front office let him get even close to walking away.

Alldaykilla.  Get off these boards son.  We don't want bandwagon fans on here and I think I can speak for most people on these boards when it comes to people like you. 

The only teams you like are teams that have just won championships for God sakes. Your favourite teams on your profile are the Yankees, Penguins, Lakers and Indi.  What a joke.   What are the odds that a true fan that sticks with one favourite team in each sport has 4 favourite teams from 4 different cities that have all won recently???

You're disgusting and a disgrace to sports fans everywhere. Your opinion is useless and not wanted.

Eagles, Vick not talking new contract yet

While I for one am happy for Vick to have a second chance, I wonder if the way things went down with Donnavan McNabb after last season and Kevin Kolb early this season will have bearing on whether he decides to sign with the Eagles or explore other options.  I know that some people will say that the Eagles were generous and gave him a chance to resurrect his career when he was first out of prison, but others will say that football is still ultimately business and loyalty can only factor in so much.  With that in mind, the fact that they traded away the face of their franchise over the past decade to give the job to Kolb would have to ressonate.  For God's sake, he's still on the team.  In a sports town that is so famously 'what have you done for me lately' will Vick feel job security when he inevitably hits a tough patch with the Eagles?  How soon before fans start calling for Kolb to be given his shot?

The Eagles right now are a great fit for Vick's game, there's no denying that.  I'm also not sure what team looking for a QB would offer a chance to step in and compete at the level the Eagles are primed to for the next couple of seasons (assuming there is no lockout).  Just have to wonder is this may be the way the McNabb saga finally comes back and bites the Eagles after so many years of turmoil and uncertainty.

Most Pro Players always do well when they are seeking a big contract and few always do well there entire career.  This is a situation werre one man has lost everything $$$$$$ and is looking for some gauranteed money.......  Only in the NFL we can throw someone under the bus one year and Big him up the next.  Randle in 98 had back to back MVP week's and now Vic too.  All scrambling QB's end up retiring early and this will be no exception.

You think he is still the same player that he was in Atlanta and pre-prison and that this season is all a fluke?    Obviously your someone who always sees the glass half empty.    Players can and do improve, sometimes greatly.    I guess you'd be the same guy who'd only pay Kurt Warner grocery boy money despite his excellent play in relief of Trent Green.   Good thing your Colts don't have you for a GM.

Look at his past, only once has he completed more than 55% of his passes, never passed for over 3000 yards, lifetime rateing is still below 80 even with this years rediculous numbers added in.  He proves he can run the ball, but ONLY because he's lined up as a QB, it's been shown in the past - you shut down his running and the team is behind, he doesn't have the mind or the ability to get the win.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Get off these boards, you don't understand the game of football dude.  When Vick left Atlanta they replaced basically their ENTIRE OLINE as well as picked up a probowl running back.  They had NOTHING when Vick was there.   He had nothing to work with.

While he is having a fluke season right now, and his numbers are up with the greats, this year by no means constitutes a long term big bucks contract

This proves how stupid you really are because anybody with a brain knows there is no such thing as a "fluky" season.  Only superstar quarterbacks can do what Vick has done so far this year.  Bad or average or even just good qb's can't do it... ever.  They might do well.. even better then well.. but never this good.

How about the cowboys you cockroach.  You and you front running fans are the biggest scum in the world.  Philly fans are loyal too their team, unlike the cowgirls fans who only come out when they are winning. 
Hopefully Vick will use you in his next dog fight.

When Vick was with Atlanta he had nobody! not one single decent WR. Alge Crumpler dude Alge I'm a fat A$$ Crumpler.

He was like Barry Sanders was to the Lions.. after him there was nobody else.
