Despite some folks' fervent wishes, the inevitable has finally happened: Michael Vick is set to return to the NFL. The former Falcons quarterback, who has been out of the league since 2006 after being convicted for running a dogfighting operation, today signed a two-year contract with the Phildelphia Eagles. In July, Vick was re-instated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and he will be allowed to take part in preseason practices and play in the final two pre-season games against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets.

Of course, Vick's return to the league means a return to the Madden NFL franchise, namely Madden NFL 10. Earlier, I took a few screens of how Vick will look in Eagles green and white in Madden 10. Incidentally, I have Vick wearing the number 8 because the game wouldn't let me assign him the number 7 (which I'm sure Ron Jaworski appreciates). I created my Vick with the stats he had in Madden NFL 07 but it will be interesting to see how the Madden 10 development team rates Vick once he's added to the game in a future roster update.

So, what do you think of Mike Vick playing in Philly? Do you think he'll be an able back-up for Donovan McNabb? How would you rate Vick in Madden 10, considering his time away from the league?

[UPDATE: According to an ESPN report, Michael Vick's addition to the Madden NFL 10 roster will take place with the August 19 roster update. He will be rated 73 overall, with notable ratings of 90 speed, 94 agility, 92 acceleration, 93 throw power, and 69 throw accuracy.]

@Salomy get your facts straight your the one that looks stupid Goodell suspended Vick indefinitely in August 2007 after Vick admitted bankrolling the "Bad Newz Kennels" dogfighting operation located on his sprawling Virginia estate. He plead guilty after three co-defendants testified to gruesome details of how Vick participated in the killing of dogs that didn't perform well in test fights by shooting, hanging, drowning or slamming them to the ground. sorry link is to big to post but pretty much every media outlet has the same story and he plead guilty to those charges so what does that mean umm he did it.Also his cousin would go to local shelters and pretend to be intrested in a dog to adopt In reality, he was looking for pit bull meat to use for betting. Sometimes as much as $40,000 a pop to watch an innocent dog get shredded to death.

mbkb24 Posted Aug 16, 2009 10:22 pm PT the reason he's number 8 is because you can't use number 7 when creating a player. You can use number 7 when creating a player. When you create someone just pick any number then go to the next screen by pressing R1, then go back to the screen where you pick a number then you'll be able to pick number 7. Its that easy.

vick killed innocent dogs by hanging,drowning,and beating them into the ground he also would get dogs from shelters and throw them into a ring to have them brutally attacked and killed by a pitbull if you think that's right then your f*****

Smur-F, Im sorry but vick was not a good quaterback. All he was good at was running. Enough said U know nothing about football if u think Vick was a good quaterback. Good quaterbacks stay in the pocket and wait for plays to develop not run around and just throw the ball up in the air. Good quaterbacks think pass first run second not run first pass second.

Hey smur-f Vick was in the playoffs twice 02-04 going 1-1 each year hardly "many" times. Also torturing animals is the #1 symptom to becoming a serial killer. I doubt most rational people would consider killing dogs less of a crime than the number one crime in the NFL statiscally, and thats drug possesion!

Vick or no Vick Eagles gon chOKE!! The eagles are all hype like the cowboys were last year and they didnt even make the playoffs, i wanna see you eagirls fans cry at the end of the season

I'm not looking forward to playing against the Eagles online. Everyone is going to bench McNabb and run all day with Vick

Lets be honest M4nofsteel NFL football players do ALOT worse things than Vick did, but never get caught. Vick was not a bad QB in any terms, he lead falcons to many playoffs. Your just being a stat whore and don't know anything about football, he did alot more than just pass the ball.

M4nofsteel

Vick was a horrible QB then (under 60% completion %) and he'll be a bum now sitting behind McNabb. As for second chances, if you read his rap sheet I would hardly say this is his second chance. Philly was good without him, they don;t need him its a waste of money. Furthermore their O-line is the spot they should be backing up, its their achillies heel this year. My dog and I hope Vick falls on his A$$!!!!

sanechupp ur corny man, and we'll see how stupid the eagles are when they hoist the Lombardi Trophy this year. Jealous cuz your team didnt get Vick? And to Eckberg, Vick wore 7 today when he practiced Peace! Go Eagles!

sanechupp

Everyone should get a second chance if he screws up again he should be out like Pac Man depending on how bad it is. I don't like the eagles anyway I think their stupid. More importantly what's going to happen since Madden retired, with the videogame I mean. Vick should leave the animals alone. Maybe T.O. will come back to mo town philly. I don't care for everything T.O. does but it usually takes two, oh my Mcdab got tired, Mcdab.

I agree with bleedgreen2-1-5's comment.

Actually, Garcia got to wear 7 when he was in Philly, Vick will probably wear 7 too, i dont think Jaws would care and its not like that numbers got a shot at getting retired, he was good but not great. Vick Practices today, lets see what number he gets, i bet its 7

DarthChristian: NFC East is always competitive. I like the vick signing in fact i talk about him in my recent blog. he deserves a second chance and im hearing everyone say oh this man did this and that its going to be so hard to look past that as a dog lover. umm im a dog lover, im over it, wasnt so hard, i was over it...anyway sorry let me get to the point. like i said i like the vick signing but i wouldve much rather them go get a WR thats well established givee up Brown, Baskett, Maclin and a couple picks for all i care...

txswagger: from an eagles fan...you cant necessarily say that yet the eagles have a lot of injuries at this moment in time that OL that everyone is all crazy about? Well, 3 out of the 5 wont play the whole preseason together. Maclin really isnt anything special. BrianEk: Yeah I read and I read the difference between Vick's real number and Vick's madden number. Stop trying to get on someone yet you suffer of ignorance. Vick is #7 on the eagles. Typical of EA to mess something like that up. Oh and theyve done it before Moss used to be #6 when he had first became a Patriot....WRs cant even hve the umber 1-9...learn much? ugh here come the mods....

Vick'll be about an 83 overall His pitbulls however will be about a 91. @NuKkU man you stalking me ? lol!

i wonder how many people are going to bench mcnab and just play with vick lol

DarthChristian
DarthChristian

as a skins fan thats one of the last things i want see. he'll be a very good fit for the team since they have a psuedo wildcat QB in Mcnab already. It'll be atleast a year before he's the Vick of 05-06 so he'll prob have a low 70's rating. But damn did the NFC East get way more competetive.

RLJSlick

Wow it's strange to see him in a Eagles uniform! I think it was a good move Philly to pick him up. They got him cheap and he is a 3 time All-Star player.

xthabeast

Aww thats kinda bs. Eagles being my team, I dont want more errors made. But, he comes in really handy for wildcat.

butterlou

The "Wildcat" offense has ALWAYS been there!!! Will people get over it; as if it's the new version of sliced bread or something. Vick is a QB, and a decent one at that. I thought he'd go to Carolina, but hey, maybe with him here McNabb will come to Charlotte. Well, I'm glad Vick is back and I think Madden is pretty solid this year. PETA, let it go. Continuing to bring it up, trying to exploit his mistakes, is that how a person is rehabilitated and able to adapt and overcome? People do worse to people... C'mon...

mechberg

@tizzomr -- I doubt he'll be wearing 7, as a matter of respect to Ron Jaworski. Regardless, as I explained in the post, I wasn't able to assign my version of Vick with the number 7.

tizzomr

Vick will be wearing 7 not 8.

NuKkU

Man im a big eagle fan and i was pretty suprised to learn about Vick last night when it was first announced but now that im thinking about it he will always be a backup(he might take over the starting position once McNabb retires in a few years) but he would be a great QB for the Wildcat offense so we will see him when they do that Overall i dont think we will see much of him this season starting and his rating in Madden 10 will probably be around a 79 @jadefury27: hey man how bout McNabb last season he didnt get injured once and had his best season since his younger days McNabb is way better and the Eagles are the team to be feared this year

Vick will have a pretty bad overall rating in the game, due to his absence. Also, the Madden team changed some of the ratings this year, with better QBs like Matt Leinart being shunted down. In real life, he isn't the best passer, but has power. McNabb will get injured though, so it'll be interesting to see, as he won't need to run as much as he did with Atlanta, as Philly have a better OL.

jadefury27
jadefury27

Since tin man mcnabb will get a season ending papercut at some point, i'm glad we made this pick up. For a running back he can sure throw.
