During the beginning of the NFL season, which started about a little more than a week ago; the huge topic of discussion seemed to be the future of Michael Vick. Vick, who started his professional career as a NFL quarterback as a Atlanta Falcon has overcome many obstacles that have been brought amongst him. He got caught fighting dogs and was convicted for killing many pitbulls, who had lost in a pitbull fight that would be setup by the NFL superstar himself and described it as a hobby for him and his entourage. However in the eyes of many other million Americans this is no hobby and in fact was very cruel and considered to be animal abuse.

After serving close to a two year sentence in prison Michael Vick wrote a book during his sentence and was trying to convince the NFL that he had become a different man. He realized that what he did was wrong, and that he had no words to describe his actions and seemed to be very disgusted of himself after noticing the amount of cruelty he had put on display towards the dogs. He wondered if he can get back into the NFL and get a starting position as a quarterback for a team. Sports fans around the world knew of his amazing and talented skill set that he brings to the table and any team would be considered a championship contender who would start him as quarterback.

Coach Andy Reid of the Philadelphia Eagles supported Michael Vick and knew about his troubled past. However he is also a man who belives in second chance oppurtunities. He offered Vick the position to come to the Eagle as start as the quarterback. His first year back was exceptional for someone who hasn’t played in two years. However they didn’t get very far in the journey of a superbowl. This offseason head coach Andy Reid left the Eagles and went to the Kansas City Chiefs being replaced by the collge coach Chip Kelly of the Oregon Ducks.

With the new coach Chip coming in the Eagles and changing up the system and how the offense would be run, it made sports fans around the world think if he would keep Michael Vick around. This morning it was announced that coach Chip Kelly indeed kept Vick within the system as Vick was offered a one year contract for ten million dollars. Not bad for the elite quarterback who announced that he was exicted to start the new system. Vick is coming back of a injury he got within the first four games of the season this year and missed about ten games. He is ready to come back and chase his life-long goal of getting a superbowl ring.

It’s a Harbaugh Superbowl

Posted: January 30, 2013 in brother rivalry, nfl

Well what else is there to look forward to this weekend then a good old American tradition of a great and fun superbowl party with friends, family and loved ones. This superbowl, however, is unlike any other. First of all, all of the high caliber teams that would usually be the ‘most likely” to be in the superbowl have been eliminated. The Denver Broncos who was a favorite in many people’s views as well as the New England Patriots were eliminated by the Baltimore Ravens and the San Fransico 49ers. The two common things that these two teams share are a field to battle for the Lombardi torphy in the superbowl and also two head coaches who just happen to be brothers.

Superbowl number forty seven is going to be as exicting as it gets. There are two of the best head coaches in the NFL who share the same family going head to head. These two brothers have been around football for all there life, as there father Jack Harbaugh who was a former college football player and coach. He is know a proud father of two sons who are going up agaisnt each other in the biggest game of the year and could possibly be the biggest game of thier career. Another interesting fact about this whold situation is Ray Lewis number 52 for the Baltimore Ravens who plays middle linebacker and is also retiring after the superbowl this year, made his first career sack agaisnt the current San Francisco 49ers head coach who was a former Indianapolis Colts quarterback; Jim Harbaugh.

This sunday emotions and tension will rise in the New Orleans Saints superdome where Superbowl forty seven will be taken place this year as the the two brothers will go up agaisnt each other and showcase thier coaching abilities and showcase their teams. It will be a very physical and competitive game as both brothers share the same insight on the game and share the same thoughts as what to do in certain situations in the game. Seems like both sides are ready for the big game and got thier teams pysched up to go out and play to earn that trophy to put this game down in history as the ultimate NFL brother rivalry.
