    I love Mike Vic, and I love the Eagles, but let’s all pray he limits his running so he does not get hurt again. Missing two games hurt (got hit while running) the team a lot. So, in my book, Mike Vic will be the MVP if he can stay healthy…So Mike, scramble when you have to but please stay in the pocket and use that arm…we need you. I see you reading defenses now…so keep at it. Your brain is faster than your feet.
