When Michael Vick
spoke earlier this week, he treated his surprise starting nod like it was a gift dropped into his lap by the football gods.
"You never know what I could accomplish," the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback said
. "I could go out there and break a record. There's tremendous upside."
As it turned out, there was scant upside to be found Sunday in the Eagles
' 42-7 loss
to the New York Giants
at frigid MetLife Stadium. Vick finished 19-of-35 passing for 197 yards and one touchdown with one interception while playing with teammates who had one foot inside the heated team bus by the second quarter.
Did you know there are only 5000 Snow Leopards in the wild now and they are confined to Central Asia? However, the effective global population (those likely to reproduce) is less than half that number.
