Well, Erik can finally stop worrying…and get to figuring out how to get his sad sack team into the playoffs in our football league….

look at the top ten plays…

ESPN.com is reporting….

Vick King Of First Down

During the first years of his career (2004-06), Michael Vick rushed the ball better than any other quarterback. He had six 100-yard rushing games and 102 10-plus yard runs, but he was also one of the top rushers amongst all players — especially on first down.

Player Team Yds/carry on 1st down
Michael Vick ATL 7.6
Frank Gore SF 5.3
Tiki Barber NYG 5.2
Mewelde Moore MIN 5.0
Joseph Addai IND 4.9

Quarterback Michael Vick has signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, his agent, Joel Segal, confirmed to ESPN.com.Vick arrived in Philadelphia Tuesday morning and remained there Wednesday evening. The Eagles will hold a news conference on Thursday morning to announce his signing. Vick was the No. 1 draft pick in 2001, and once the highest-paid player in football. But he has not played since 2006 when his career came tumbling down. He was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, sentenced to 23 months in federal prison and suspended indefinitely by the NFL. But after serving his time and being released from home confinement July 20, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick’s suspension, allowing him to sign with a team. The Eagles travel to meet Vick’s former team, the Atlanta Falcons, in Week 13 on Dec. 6. Chris Mortensen is a senior NFL anlyst. ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio contributed to this report.

We know about the dogfighting, but the guy served his time.

I think that Vick has a full house....

Also, as another option out of the backfield to pair with Westbrook, this move seems great.  You can also give him a look as a backup QB to Donovan if anythign were to happen to him this year.  He is also a little bit younger than Dovovan, so he might be another stop gap type QB until you find your franchaise guy.  Remember, he used to be able to do this….

I secretly (really out loud to anyone who would listen) hoped that the Raiders would be the team to sign him.  He could be a mentor to JaMarcus, who I am worried about being a failure, and give us some assurance that if we had to call on the backup, we would be okay.

Hopefully, this is another sign that PETA has no sway…Mr. Vick wanted me to deliver a message to you…

I'm still gonna be RRIICCHH BITCH! Take that PETA....
