Apparently McNabb can't, he says it's a fading gimmick. Apparently Vick, whom they haven't seen work yet, will be carried as a backup QB and not a gimmick...
Eagles fans are actually pretty upset and divided, and that's before the protests and they find out he still can't read a defense... Palantonio was at the game and he said the strangest atmosphere he'd ever seen. As word spread the seats emptied and people were under the stands in the concorses asking each other if this was real and for the most part just shocked that their team had done this.
The really interesting thing that everyone seems to forget is there is no love lost between McNabb and his fan base. And he's had falling outs with his friends he's lobbied for before (black on black crime ring a bell...). And Eagle fans are the people who boo'd Santa.
Herm says Andy is a strong HC and he will manage this, just like he did TO (oh wait...). Maybe he will have Mike just move in with he and the Mrs. They have a couple of empty rooms since their own boys moved in...with the state.
JAWS thinks this was a big mistake...any use of Vick will disrupt McNabb's timing. I think he's on to something. And if the fans in Philly think there is an alternative to McNabb...
Wayne Pacelle from the Humane society says it's a great landing place for Mike since they have a big dog fighting problem in Philly...
