Philadelphia Eagles Free NFL Picks, Predictions against the Spread
Before the beginning of last season, the Philadelphia Eagles took a huge gamble on troubled quarterback Michael Vick. Not only was Vick fresh out of prison and arguably the most hated athlete in the country, but he seemed to be a big risk for any NFL franchise and their image, but Philly took a chance and it paid off as Vick slowly but surely got back to form.
The one-time NFL MVP might not be able to get back to the superstar status he had before he went to prison where he was arguably the most popular player in the league, but he could definitely help the Eagles become a force to be reckoned with in the NFC Conference once again and get some favorable odds in NFL picks throughout the country.
Even though Michael Vick has been able to keep his nose clean ever since being released from prison and has made steps to rehabilitate his image in the NFL, the player that was once regarded as the fastest man in the NFL might be in trouble once again after a shooting incident outside a Virginia Beach nightclub on his 30th birthday.
Reportedly, Vick wasnâ€™t involved in any shape or form, but the shooting did involve one of Vickâ€™s friends in Quanis Phillips. This friend was a co-defendant in the Vick dog fighting ring trial and ultimately served 21 months due to his involvement, but Vick was told to have no further contact with this person and that has been the one concern with this incident.
Apparently, Phillips was shot in this shooting, but was taken to a nearby hospital and was released the following afternoon.
Now NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will look into this incident and determine whether or not Michael Vick will require punishment even though police believe Vick had absolutely no part in the shooting.
