UPDATE: Michael Vick Smoked LeSean McCoy in a Foot Race, McCoy Says Vick Cheated

Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 1.57.58 PMA LITTLE FRIENDLY CHALLENGE. SOME SPUNK, SHOWN. PRIDE. FOOTBALL!!!!!!!

I love this. Apparently after a week of being taunted by LeSean McCoy that he was an “old man,” Michael Vick challenged his running back to a foot race, a good old fashioned foot race, a duel, a dogfight, a feat of athleticism. Bully! And he won:

I’m not sure if that says more about Vick not being old… or McCoy spending his offseason on a beach bitching with his baby mama instead of working out. We’ll err on the side of Vick still having something left in the tank, for now. [Here comes a Tweet about Muscle Pharm in 3..2..1.]

Pro Football Talk provides a bit more details on the showdown:

But there’s more to the story, which we’ve obtained from a league source with knowledge of the situation.

McCoy had been riding Vick for weeks, calling him “old man” and challenging Vick to a footrace.  Vick had been laughing it off, until today.

Today, Vick had enough.  So he asked coach Chip Kelly if he could accept McCoy’s invitation.  Kelly agreed.

Nice to see the Eagles showing some signs of life and – bonus! – it’s relevant to Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense! Now, if only Jimmy Rollins and Ben Revere would challenge each other to, you know, DO SOMETHING, we’d have two teams in this town that acted like they gave two shits.

UPDATE: GAH! Just when I thought this friendly bout was a wonderful show of sportsmanship, McCoy becomes a sore loser and goes and claims Vick cheated… like several times he does:

Is there no sanctity in the good old fashioned foot race anymore? I hate everything about everything.

  1. After the loss, McCoy was beat, electrocuted, and ultimately put down

  2. Well, as that old saying goes, “If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin'”. I guess Mike took that motto to heart.

  3. Throw DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin in the rematch and let’s make this REAL interesting…

    Starting to like this team…No Reid, no Nnamdi, no Babin…DeSean has been quiet…Dig it.

  4. If I was Vick I’d take the Seinfeld defense to a possible rematch. “I choose not to run”.

  5. Well, McCoy’s probably a better quarterback than Vick so it all equals out.

  6. I just hope those illiterate fucks aren’t on the team come september. I could give two shits who’s faster, they are doucebag punks regardless. And take Mac and Djack with ya boys.

    1. Yeah the Eagles should definitely get rid of LeSean McCoy. He’s totally not a top NFL running back in the prime of his career who’s just as much of threat as a receiver as he is a runner. Let’s get rid of the team’s best offensive player because he doesn’t use proper grammar and spelling on Twitter. Cuz that’s highly important for winning football games.

  7. Am I the only one who thinks Vick can be lethal in Chip’s offense this season?

  8. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
