These type of trades are almost unheard of in the NFL. Besides, they have a pretty good chance of cutting their losses for much less after the season if things continue to go the way they have gone in Philly. Also, I would prefer to see if things come to fruition and they fire Andy Reid. I would obviously then be looking at him as an option at HC. As head coach he wanted to hitch his wagon to Vick over any other QB options, that would be viable IMHO. Why would we want the team to strap itself to a QB that may or may not be someone the next head coach had belief in.
Quite frankly, I am not as sold on Vick as you, anyhow. I kinda felt like he would be a one to 2 year and bust typa guy after he came back.
