“Won’t you help to sing…these songs of freedom…”
Bob Marley – Redemption Song
As the NFL season shifts gears from training camp to the preseason…a lot of talk has been about Tom Brady and his return from injury…however there is another quarterback that didn’t play last year…and he has dominated his fair share of headlines too.
- Backup QB Kevin Kolb was drafted in 2007, and while he was given a few key opportunities to shine…he has yet to pan out, as a reliable 2nd or 3rd string. To add a strain of difficultly to this scenario…he was injured recently towards the end of training camp.
- Donovan McNabb is and will be the main guy in Philadelphia…however if he gets hurt during a game, or has to miss games due to injury…then having Vick on the bench to fill in, is a great insurance policy for this team’s high powered West Coast Offense.
- Vick will serve a suspension to start the season, so he will have time to learn the plays, fellowship with his teammates, and get comfortable being in his own skin, as he gets readjusted to life in the NFL.
- Life is about change, as it is one of the more constant things in this world…so for Michael Vick, who I believe can still play and excel on a high level…will have McNabb to learn from, and a team that played in the NFC Championship last season to add to.
This is a good sign for what is yet to come from the Eagles, and the silky smooth, left handed, hurler from Virgina…Michael Vick.
