Michael Vick's Extremely Untimely Facebook Post

I know Michael Vick isn’t playing tomorrow, but he’s been with the Eagles in the 1,087 days that it has been since they last played in a playoff game, and has to understand how rough it has been at times. So the night before the Eagles first playoff game in three years, and Vick’s verified Facebook account posts this?

Hey fans!! Just because Football is coming to an end doesn’t mean #fantasysports has too…I’m a huge basketball fan, so I told the guys over at #Fanduel we need to keep these leagues going!! Join tomorrow’s league for a chance to win autographed gear and $25,000 in cash prizes!! #TeamVick #iLOVEmyfanshttp://bit.ly/19PZRoT << sign up here

I’m not as confident as everyone else that the season won’t end tomorrow night for the Eagles, but I’m certainly not hoping for that outcome. I know that Vick likely didn’t even write this himself, and that he was alluding to fantasy football more than actually football, but this post could have been saved for when the Eagles actually do get eliminated from the playoffs.

Somewhere out there, NFL conspiracy theorists will try to make a case that Vick leaked out that the NFL has it fixed for the Saints to win tomorrow…

    I think this is blown out of proportion, Vick is talking about making money on fantasy sports something that all the players do.
