How much longer will the Eagles put up with Vick?

Standard

According to Pro Football Talk, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick is back in bankruptcy court due to decisions that violated bankruptcy laws several years ago.

One has to wonder how much more can the Eagles put up with?

Vick in the months prior to filing for bankruptcy made out 54 checks to cash totaling over $750 thousand, which he gave to family, friends, and his three fellow codefendants for their legal fees.

Vick is already in hot water for deciding to have a public birthday, which resulted in one of his former codefendants Quanis Phillips to show up for, and then getting shot later.

If Vick is found guilty then you can expect National Football League commisioner Roger Goodell to suspend him again.

In the end, the way things are going for Vick you can expect him to be out of the NFL for good soon enough.

Maybin will get his shot to prove it

Standard

Most draft picks that are taken in the top 10 of the National Football League Draft have an immediate impact right away, but for Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Aaron Maybin that was’t the case.

Finally, Maybin will get his shot this year to prove his worth.

Maybin missed all of training camp last year due to a contract holdout, but even if he was on time it wouldn’t have mattered as the Bills planned to have ride the bench for a year.

Now, with the retirement of long time defensive lineman Aaron Schobel Maybin will get to start this year.

There is no doubt in my mind Maybin will prove his worth as his mentor is Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and former Washington Redskins linebacker Lavar Arrington.

Obviously, to be worth while he needs to record the same number of sacks or more than Schobel did, which was usually 10 or more a season.

That may be a reach as most solid pass rushers get about eight or nine.

In the end, if Maybin to me there is no doubt in my mind that Maybin will be a probowler someday.
