• Sorry, Kolb. Michael Vick starts in Philadelphia after all

    Sometimes you draft poorly. I’m told it happens.

    You may end up with a worthless set of running backs — guys who got too old without letting you know that you should remove them from your draft board. Maybe you ended up with a horrible corps of wide receivers — the worst of the worst who couldn’t catch a ball if their life depended on it.

    Maybe the quarterback you set your sights on just can’t seem to get it through his head which color his team’s jerseys are, and he spends his free time checking down to the running back before he is pummeled by the defense.

    Maybe you just drafted a bunch of Buffalo Bills.

    When you come to grips with the reality that your fantasy football team needs work, you wish and wish upon a star that someone would save you, that somehow, someway, a top 10 quarterback would drop from the heavens and into your lap — someone to help you rise above your 0-2 record.

    Well…that just happened. Michael Vick is now the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Oh, and all you guys who picked him up to start in Week 2 and just happened to land him for the entire season…for shame.

    We would say more, but we won’t because it’s clear that you’ve made a deal with the devil, and that’s not the kind of juju I want coming after my own fantasy football team.
