Falcons trade for Asante Samuel

"The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to trade cornerback Asante Samuel to the Atlanta Falcons on Wednesday, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

As part of the trade, Samuel and the Falcons have agreed to terms on a three-year, $18.5 million deal.” - nfl.com

This was my favorite “What if Michael Vick were white?” reaction from yesterday. No idea whom to credit for the image.

Eagles make Rodgers-Cromartie jersey available on their website.

"Unlike MLB, most of the NFL shops are ran by the team- not the league.

What likely happened here (I know because this used to be my job with MLB) is that someone in the marketing department was preparing for a trade and pressed the “go live” button before they should have. Interesting, though.

UPDATE: The Eagles have since removed the jersey.”

*Even though I didn’t agree with the call.

Is Vick an MVP candidate?
After last night performance he should at least be in the conversation.
Who would have thought two years ago that we would ever have this discussion again. Some people didn’t even think he’d ever play again.

If we break it down to the true meaning, most valuable, Vick has not lost a  game this year that he didn’t play the entire game. The Eagles are 6-3. The 3 games that they lost were week 1, which Vick came in for an injured Kolb, put on a good show, had a 101.9 qb rating, and almost finished what would have been a great comeback. Week 4, Vick only threw 7 passes before leaving due to injury, when he was in he still had a qb rating of 90.8 and week 7 where Vick didn’t even play.

Here’s another interesting stat, ZERO interceptions this year. Not a single one. He also keeps the chains moving, he has rushed for 20 1st downs this year. And the last 2 minutes of each half his qb rating is 133.3, other potential MVP QBs have ratings of 55.3 (Rivers), 80.0 (Brady), 95.5 (P. Manning) in the last 2 minutes.

Here are the five players that Peter King listed on his MVP watch, posted Monday well before the Monday night game.

Tom Brady - 17 Pass TDs, 4 INTs, 2,176 Pass Yds, 98.8 RTG, 1 Rush TDs
Peyton Manning - 16 Pass TDs, 4 INTs, 2,663 Pass Yds, 93.9 RTG, 0 Rush TDs
Philip Rivers - 19 Pass TDs, 8 INTs, 2,944 Pass Tds, 102.9 RTG, 0 Rush TDs
Clay Matthews - 31 TKL, 10.5 SCK, 1 FF, 1 INT
Roddy White - 70 Rec, 934 YDS, 13.3 AVG, 7 TDs

Now let’s throw Vick’s numbers in the mix

Mike Vick - 11 Pass TDs, 0 INT, 1,350 Pass Yds, 115.1 RTG, 341 Rush YDs, 4 Rush TDs.

Throw in how much better he is late in the half, plus the amount of rushing first down’s he has. Take into account the complete games that he’s won. He doesn’t have the passing numbers that the other QBs do, but he makes up for it in different ways.

Here’s what’s against him, he’s been hurt. He’s missed 3 games, plus didn’t start one, and didn’t finish one. So it’s hard to give MVP to a guy who’s missed almost 4 games. If he continues these numbers and doesn’t miss any more games he will need strong consideration for the MVP. If he misses any more games it will be hard to keep him in the conversation.

Eagles trade Mike Bell to Cleveland for Jerome Harrison
This is a weird deal to me from the Browns side. Isn’t Mike Bell the same type of runner as Peyton Hillis? Maybe the Browns will be completely a slow pound offense. There is no change of pace here. Maybe Harrison was in the dog house for some bad reasons. I think this is a good deal for the Eagles. I think Harrison has some upside.
