Vick says he'll be out 1-2 weeks

Eagles QB Michael Vick said on a radio show tonight that he should be out no longer than two weeks.

In comments captured by the Eagles official website, Vick talked to the The Game and The Bruce Smith Show on WXTG Radio 102.1, and he said, despite the rib injury, he’s feeling pretty good.

Said Vick: "There is some cartilage damage up in there and a small fracture up in there, so maybe a week, maybe two weeks. We'll have to see. I've got some cartilage damage up in there, in the upper area of my ribs. I just have to work through it. I've always been a quick healer. It won't be no more than one, two weeks hopefully. Hopefully.

More from Vick: "The most important thing is just rest. There is really nothing you can do for a rib injury, especially in the upper part of your rib cage. I'll get rest, I've got a Hyperbaric machine and I'll be spending a lot of time in that trying to restore my blood cells. I'll stay in the treatment room, getting ice for it and just trying to get movement."

After the pancake that was made out of him against the Redskins, 1-2 weeks out of action has to be considered very good news for Philadelphia fans.

Stallworth manned up???

He pled TO THE LESSER CRIME as quickly as he could! The scavenger family needed it settled quickly so they could file the all important civil suit ($$$$$$). The humanitarian that Stallworthless is, he pled as fast as his ass c ould before a jury sent him away to do real time. Idiot

Dude I come from an incredibly low income background. I grew up in a gang infested neighborhood, and learned the streets real early. I also learned real early that most gangs are all, if not 90% black. I've never been involved in the KKK, I don't LIKE the KKK. Your point about OJ makes MY point. He got away with it because he's a rich, famous black. If it had been a white, and it has been before, he would have gotten a huge book thrown at him.

No, I don't blame "the mafia" on blacks, I don't blame prohibition on blacks. Blacks had nothing to do with either of the above. I blame rampant stupidity for both, and highly condemn both. I also condemn gangs and such as well, because frankly, it's all fricken stupid.

You're making your own point.  I didn't help you make anything.  My point was that OJ had enough money to get himself the kind of defense that would effectively allow him to walk away a free man.  It had nothing to do with him being Black.  Where did all this, "He's Black, so let him slide" mentality come from, as it surely wasn't around 50 years ago, when Blacks were still being sprayed down with Water Hoses for peaceful protest, or being run out of "White Only" Restaurants or other Business establishments.

If you blame all the problems on stupidity, then you need to start with the garbage you're spouting.  That's part of the problem.  Gangs have always been around.  They aren't anything new, and how they form isn't a mystery.  You don't see Rich Kids forming gangs.  Rich people already have most of the things or at least the ability to acquire most of the things or reasons gangs are formed over.  Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan can get caught with drugs and get basically what amounts to be a slap on the wrist, because they are famous.  Michael Vick gets caught with a Water Bottle that has residue in it, and all people do is talk about how he's a thug.

What does that make Paris and Lindsay?  White Trash?

He may come back, but can he stay back?  The Eagles offensive line is one of the worst in the league.  Any QB that stands behind it will eventually go down with an injury.  This NFL is not the same NFL as it was a few years ago when Vick was in his prime.  If you are a quarterback and you run, or you are left unprotected, you will go down with in an injury in quick time.  NFL football has become the blood-sport.  There is no survival for any QB who is not protected.  Good luck Kevin Kolb.  I hope you can survive another 2 weeks until Vick returns.  As for the Eagles, I said it before...  4-7 wins MAX.  With or without Vick.  This team is a bunch of pretenders and you can't win in the NFL without solid line play on both sides of the ball.

Actually, you couldn't be more wrong. I believe in true equality, where every man and woman, regardless of race, gender, nationality, whatever, is held to the EXACT SAME standard of behavior. Not this, "well, he didn't have his father in his life" crap that blacks always get to get away with constant criminal activity. Who are the most people in gangs? Blacks. Who are the biggest criminals in the country? Blacks. These are just pure facts that can easily be backed up with evidence from the Injustice Department.


Where the hell did you go to school at?  The KKK?  I suppose you're going to blame everything that happened during Prohibition on Blacks, and the Mafia on Blacks as well.  If Blacks were getting away with "so much", why are the prison's full of them?  OJ got away with whatever you're trying to blame on him, because he had money.  Try the same thing with a person coming from a low income background, who gets a public defender, and you have a case that ends in 15 minutes, not 2-1/2 years.

Blacks are not the biggest criminals in the country.  They are just the smaller fish that gets caught.  The bigger fish usually have enough power to swim faster upstream and get away.  If you REALLY wanted to get some actual unbiased facts, instead of racist rhetoric, you'd find that you're ancestors are probably the criminals that started this country.
