The fallout from the Michael Vick ruling is pretty interesting. For the Chiefs, at least. From Intentional Foul (big thanks for the pic, too):
It’s been revealed that Roger Goodell will be allowing Michael Vick to reenter his National Football League in the third week of the regular season. The Philadelphia Eagles will be hosting the Kansas City Chiefs on Vick’s first game back since his incarceration, giving offensive coordinator-embattled Todd Haley with even more to worry about besides the ghost of Jim Johnson and his legacy of incredible blitzing defenses he kindly left behind.
The good news? The game isn’t Philly’s home opener. The bad news? I think the rowdy Philly crowd might be more psyched for Vick’s first game than the Eagles’ first one. Like that crowd needs to be any rowdier. I’m going to go ahead and hope that this won’t be Matt Cassel’s first game bac. Man, that would be rough. Then again, maybe PETA will buy a bunch of tickets and root for our Chiefs?
As far as stopping Vick goes, that’s an interesting proposition. For starters, we have no clue how they are going to use him in the regular season. OK, so we sorta have a clue, but not much of one. On the other hand, Vick promises to be rusty. It’s hard to say what we’ll see from Vick, and whether or not we’ll be able to keep him in check.
This gives us another thing to watch tonight, because when Vick takes the field against the Jets tonight it will be the last game action he sees until we visit town. So, let’s keep an eye on Vick and go out there and beat the Rams (even though it doesn’t really matter).
