    One knock on Michael Vick is his inability to start and finish a season. He was knocked out of three games last year with the Philadelphia Eagles and hasn't played a 16-game slate since 2006. "I want to make a promise to all my fans that I'm going to make a conscious effort, a cognitive effort, to make sure that I protect myself," Vick told WPEN-FM in Philadelphia. "And you know my motto has been this for the last six months, and I repeatedly said to myself: 'Get the next yard on the next play.' Ya know, whether I'm running the football or scrambling or trying to do something improvising. Get the next yard on the next play. Vick talked about leaving yards for second and third down, an unusual suggestion for a quarterback, but the Eagles are pushing Vick to tone down the scramble-into-traffic act. "Praying to God that I can play 16 games," Vick said. "I know that's the key to the season. I know deep down in my heart. And even though I believe in the players behind me, the players around me, I know what I can do and I know what I can bring to the table each and every Sunday, so I know it's paramount that I'm out on the field."

    Keep dreaming slim.. You have to face Ware and that nasty front line of the Giants twice a year... And with your LT out... My money says you don't make it past mid season. sorry Eagles fans..

    If Vick can stay healthy the Eagles will have a chance at the NFC crown. That and if Shady plays his A game again.

    He hasn't played a full 16-game season since he's been an Eagle.

    ummmm not really its based on fact playing the cowboys last year he probably felt like it was 2 hand touch how easily he had his way with that defense.

    Signing Bell means the cupboard isnt bare. LT isnt an absolute weakness. He is no Peters, but at least he experienced

    On the other side of the coin, Bell didnt have to play 6 games VS, JPP, Ware and Orakpo either

    It isnt about how well he played or will play, its about how many hits he is going to take
