|Bills fan wondering what to do next after reading Vick's GQ interview.|
Another Mike Vick GQ piece is about to hit the newstands ... and, uh, go digital.
And Vick speaks openly about how he wound up with the Eagles after his 18-month stint in Levenworth, not Cincinnati our Buffalo, where he could have started.
Meaning there is going to be a whole lot of collusion-type damage control going on from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to Eagles head coach Andy Reid to team president Joe Banner. Here's an excerpt:
"I think I can say this now, because it's not going to hurt anybody's feelings, and it's the truth... I didn't want to come to Philadelphia. Being the third-team quarterback is nothing to smile about. Cincinnati and Buffalo were better options."
Those two teams wanted him and would've allowed him to start, but after meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell and other reps from the NFL, Vick was convinced—and granted league approval—to sign with Philly. "And I commend and thank them, because they put me in the right situation."
That won't go over big with enemies of Goodell (Bill Belichick) or the Eagles (Jerry Jones, Tom Coughlin subsequently lost star free agents to the Vick aura. And it had to wrankle the Bengals and the Bills. Where might they be with Vick?

Huskers Nation has seen enough of Alex Henery to think he can help the Eagles make a seamless transition from the recently concluded David Akers era.
Henery has been tearing it up at Eagles training camp. He blasted a 55-yarder in one practice. In another he consistently kicked the ball through the end zone, sending the offensive linemen standing around behind the end line scurrying for cover. It was like artillery shells falling.
Here's another reason to believe in Henery:
