Vick eligible to disrupt Eagles offense starting Week 3
Updated: September 4, 2009

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell gave Michael Vick and the Eagles the green light to obliterate their existing offensive playbook sooner than previously expected. The Eagles will be free to experiment with their new toy starting in Week 3 at home against the Chiefs, when Vick will be fully reinstated by the league.

Andy Reid spoke about the news and didn’t seem all that pleased by Goodell’s decision.

“I really can’t tell you I’m happy about this,” said Reid. “Goodell led us to believe Michael wouldn’t be available until around Week 4 or 5. We still have no freaking clue how we’re actually going to use him in games and now he’ll be available Week 3? Goodell completely screwed us.”

Vick played in the team’s final preseason game and was sacked four times, lost a fumble and threw an interception in the 38-27 loss to the Jets but did manage to run two yards for a touchdown in the second quarter.

“I wanted to end the preseason on a high note,” Vick said after the game. “And as you can see that didn’t happen. But at least my first game back is against the Chiefs which we’re treating like a fifth preseason game at this point.”

    It will give Reid a few weeks to come up with an excuse when he does this again in a game that means something.

Feel free to leave a comment. Or don't. It's whatever...
