It has been apparent for years that the Philadelphia Eagles are working overtime to piss off franchise quarterback Donovan McNabb. Without McNabb, the Eagles, who constantly flirt with the NFC championship, would be just another NFL franchise – like the Redskins, but without Joe Gibbs and three Super Bowl trophies.

So surely when the Eagles made the announcement via text message (what no Tweet?!?), McNabb was probably in the dark about the latest QB drama about to unfold in the City of Brotherly Hate.

It is too late to get T.O. back?

Nice, Eagles, NICE!

Eagles head coach Andy Reid was quick to say, “There won’t be a quarterback controversy.”

He went on to say, “He’s an unbelievable athlete, both running the ball and throwing it. I’ll think of something for him.”

The most likely scenario would be for the Eagles to use Vick in a variation of the Wildcat offense that the Miami Dolphins made popular last season. Vick also is familiar with the West Coast offense, though he ran a different version with Atlanta than the one Philadelphia uses.

Philadelphia is a surprise landing point for Vick. The Eags were among 26 clubs that said there was no interest in him, but that may have changed when backup Kevin Kolb strained a knee ligament earlier this week. Kolb’s injury isn’t serious, and he’s expected to return next week. The Eagles also have veteran A.J. Feeley.

Wait a minute, the Eagles back-ups are named Kolb and Feeley...surprised they signed Vick? Really?

According to various sources, Reid consulted with McNabb before signing Vick. (Again, with the "really?")

Needless to say, P.E.T.A. is delighted.
