Vick not worth the trouble for Eagles

With their shocking decision to sign Michael Vick, the Eagles are taking an enormous risk. All that’s at stake is everything owner Jeff Lurie and head coach Andy Reid have ever said about what the franchise stands for, and they have put all of that in the hands of a man who went to prison for murdering dogs.
It just isn’t worth it. Not from a football standpoint, which is secondary, and not from any other standpoint.
“It’s up to Michael to prove that change has taken place,” Reid said. “I think he’s there. That’s what he wants to do. He knows not everybody is going to have that trust in him or belief in him. But I think he’ll go out and prove” he’s changed.
