Eagles give Vick $100M, 6-year contract
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-eagles-vick

Damn, I think someone overpaid. Yes he's electrifying, awesome to watch, a great runner, but he's in a position way too often to have his career ended on one play. Sure, that can happen to any QB on any given down, but Vick makes himself WAY more vulnerable with the way he tries to keep plays going w/his feet.

Is he worth the $40 mil guaranteed, $100 mil contract?

Crazy numbers for a guy with a shady past and no superbowl rings but he is without a doubt the most dynamic player in the game.

It's hard to say what he's worth when you can't buy his style of play anywhere else. I think this deal puts him a peg above Eli Manning who the Giants signed for 97mm over 6yrs a while back.

I tell you one thing, I'd never want to play Texas Hold 'em against the Eagles. They are betting the franchise on this guy. All in. Based on little more than a gut feeling that he will do great things. If he goes down they are screwed.

Well, one factor that he has going for him, is that he puts asses in seats and gets games on TV.

Hell, I think some folks probably watch him just to see if he's finally going to get his knees broken running all over the field.

Just heard that even with the $40 mil. he won't be able to pay off all the creditors from his bankruptcy. Ouch.

Everything is risky... the guy plays hard, doesn't complain and what he did last season is pretty incredible. Kevin Kolb isn't even in the same zip code and isn't talented enough to have the potential to be in the same league as Vick so that was a no brainer decision... once Kolb was out, you gotta bet it all on Vick. Can't really go to the draft and start over with a fresh QB because thats a much bigger gamble then giving Vick the deal since most drafted QBs are busts. Eagles are built to make a run right now so you almost have to go with Vick and try to get the super this year or in the next few years. Its a short term gamble that could pay off big.... if not, Eagles will find themselves exactly where they would be today without Vick but only like 3 years down the line.
