Michael Vick Ranks High As A Free Agent?

It’s not a surprise to us that the Eagles may not resign Michael Vick this season. NFL.com reported the “Potential Free Agent Quaterbacks”. You may be interested in the numbers since I’m a numbers guy.

Michael Vick has 58 wins, 49 loses and 1 tie. Vick ranks the highest in numbers. Matt Schaub has 46 wins, 44 loses and Mark Sanchez has 33 wins and 29 loses. Schaub and Sanchez are both under contract through 2016.

Maybe one of the other teams on this list would be interested in picking up Vick. Nobody knows if he would even be a starter again in the NFL at this point. Everyone already knows Vick wants to be a starting quarterback this season.

Jeremy Maclin Wants To Stay In Philly!

Jerermy Maclin is still recovering from his torn ACL last July. He knows he will not be 100% before the free agency on March 11, but wants to still head to training camp. Maclin told the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Zach Berman on Saturday “This is where I want to be and the Eagles stated the same.”

Maclin will join the free agency with other talents which includes Eric Decker, Riley Cooper, Hakeem Nicks and others. I personally would like having Eric Decker into Philadelphia’s mix of wide receivers if he becomes available. I believe Chip Kelly could make him a dangerous weapon to our offence. What do you think?

No Spending Salary for Michael Carter-Williams?

The NBA Rising Stars Challenge was good for the 6’6″ rising NBA star. Michael Carter-Williams picked up 17 points with nine assists and 6 rebounds.

Carter-Williams is expected to make $4.5 million with the Sixers for 2 years. He will earn a total of $10 million if the Sixers pick up the last 2 years of his contract. That’s not bad for a 22 year old rookie in the NBA. According to Philly.com, Carter-Williams mother Mandy setup a trust for his salary deposits. The money cannot be touched for three years. Sports Illustrated reported that an estimated 60 percent of NBA players are broke within five years of retirement(2009 data). How anything really changed since 2009?

Former Eagle TO: Having Love Trouble

Terrell Owens the former Eagle, is having love trouble after 2 weeks. Owens married  Rachel Snider on January 23 at a courthouse in California. Snider told TMZ Owens married her for the money. Owens  apparently needed a $2 million dollar loan for a house.

I think TO gets a strike on this one with $2 million dollars to spare. If he can’t do bowling as a career, perhaps maybe stick to doing commercials.

Snow Storm Coming With The Phillies?

The Phillies catchers and pitchers will begin their first workout tomorrow February 13 in Clearwater, Florida. The full team will workout on February 18.

I wanted to bring you at least some good weather in baseball if your living back east like myself. It’s almost time for baseball already. I hope your just as excited as myself.

GO PHILLIES!

Sixers doing what we want?

Let’s face it, the Sixers are doing exactly what we want them to do. Right? We are all on board with the unofficial tanking of the season in order to procure the best possible draft scenario in June.  To our delight, the Pelicans are playing their role to perfection, losing just enough games to enable 2 top 12 picks for the Sixers. Remember the  N.O. Pelicans have a top 5 lottery protected pick.  Anyhow, why do I feel as if I can not shower enough to get the losing stench off me from the last 2 games?  After all, as stated above, our beloved Sixers are doing what we all want. Perhaps not. I will come clean, while I do want a top pick in the draft I do not want to endure 40 point losses and games where effort has been all but forgotten. While losing may be a good thing this season, let’s at least maintain our dignity and lose because the roster is talent deficient and not because the effort is nonexistent.

Madson In, Burnett Out?

Ruben Amaro Jr. is still looking to improve the Phillies roster for next season. Amaro said “It’s more likely we’ll go in with what we’ve got”.The pitches and catchers will be reporting in less than one week for their workout.

AJ Burnett was on the Phillies radar. It appears the Pirates and Orioles are interested in him as well.

The Phillies expressed their interest in Ryan Madson who has not pitched since 2011. Madson was recovery from Tommy John surgery that had complications during the recovery process.

Madson earned a 2.37 ERA in 2011 with 4 wins and 2 losses, 63 strikeouts.

Nick Foles Going Up In Value?

I have been checking out ebay since Nick Fole’s rookie season as an Eagle. In 2012, his rookie cards didn’t seem to be much in value. I discovered this was different after his 2013 season.

Foles had a rating of 119.2 with 27 TD and 2,891 in passing yards in 2013. Foles as a rookie had a rating of 79.1 with 6 TD and 1,699 in passing yards in 2012.

I noticed a recent ebay auction of a 2012 Panini Playoff Contenders (Auto Rookie Playoff Ticket Rc 77/99) card was selling for a good price. How good? $330 good!

Do I think he would be worth adding to my card collection? Absolutely!
