    One thing about Me is that I DON'T Hold My Tongue & I DON'T JUST AGREE OR DISAGREE with things...I Give Answers & Reasons as to Why I'm Expressing My Opinions with "IRREFUTABLE FACTS." First, No Offense, But...How Can a Person Be Considered as a SERIOUS Contender for a "LIVE Sports Talk Radio Show Host" Who IS BLATANTLY Reading From A SCRIPT!?!?! Two of Our Winners Didn't have the COURTESY to Memorize what they were Saying?!?! IF the Judges were LOOKING SO Closely/Combing through all these Entries, how did they miss that or NEVER Figure out that this Was out of Place??? ScratchMH...2nd: They Sat in Colin Kaepernik's Living Room & asked that Man "HOW FAST ARE YOU?" So, then Why Can't Michael Vick Say "I'm the FASTEST Quarterback in the NFL..." What He Is REALLY Telling EAGLES Fans is "IF The 49ers, Seahawks & Redskins had A Ton of Success with TWO Rookie Quarterbacks & a Second Year Quarterback...What The H*LL Do You Think I'm Gonna Do This Coming Season!?!?" It's called "CODE/Ball Player Talk People"...Smdh...You See, We NEED a Host here in Philly who knows How to Listen & gives SOMEONE within the Eagles Organization some type of credit for Knowing Something at Some point & Stop Over Looking What Our Birds are Saying & Doing: Folks HONESTLY Believe that 'Chip Kelly' would Look at Game Film of Vick from Past seasons & see that Vick could NOT Read A Defense & Would be Willing to Re-sign the Man for $9Million...HUH??? There IS NO QB Controversy, It's Called "PROPER ETIQUETTE" For a Team that Just went 4-12 last Season, He's NOT getting Ready to Lost his Job to a 4th Round guy from Arizona...G-Wiz...It's A Slap in Chip Kelly's FACE. 3rd: 'Cary Williams' Just Won The SUPER BOWL Playing with a Defense Lead By Two First Ballot 'Hall OF Famers' & ARGUABLY THE BEST LEADER TO EVER Lead An NFL TEAM in (RAY LEWIS AKA "SUGA") So, WHAT Bleeping Veteran On A 4-12 Eagles TEAM Could Have Told that Man To Show The H*LL Up for a Voluntary Training Camp...But, That Minute, Twelve Entry Was PRICELESS...SOOOO PROFOUND & Mike MISS said this guy Sounds ANALYTICAL...ROTF...But, I guess I'm a Hater...Nope, Just Knowledgeable & Sensitive to FACTS...But, Honestly...I was Told Coming in that There Would Be a Guy who's Already in the Finals & the Judges are going to pick people that he can beat up on...the Person who told Me this May Prove to Be right...Listen to Sean's Voice 'Carefully'...I Hope The other two Finalist are Prepared & Ready for What THIS GUY'S gonna sound Like on that HD Mic...SMH...I was Told Not To Be Upset because The Judges Picked the Right guys who they thought would Make it look interesting, we'll see...& Oh, I was Already Laying the Ground Work to Start My Own PodCast & Youtube Page when I was Told About this Dream Job thing...& To think, They Told Us To Promote our Entries Only To Lose To Guys Who Did ZERO PROMOTING...WOW/SMH...FUMBLE...

      @PratherH In the words of Jay Peterman “I am in the middle of a good ole fashioned catfight WOOF”

      I appreciate a man who speaks his thoughts, no matter how faulty the logic.

      First, I watched your video and enjoyed it. However, I wonder how someone who used a dry erased board for a radio interview can honestly take shots at anyone. I guess that’s why you choose insinuation rather than stating specifically who you were speaking about.

      Rest assured I don’t do scripted radio, a little bit of research would verify that.

      Now for the fun part, MICHAEL VICK SHOULDN’T CARE IF HE IS FASTER THEN ANY OTHER QB IN THE LEAGUE. Who cares if he is faster than Kapernick? That’s the problem, in Vick’s last 64 starts, the equivalent of four seasons, he is a .500 qb with a 57 percent completion percentage. He has yet to last a full season and the Eagles have gone from an 11 win team to a 4 win team on his watch.

      Vick should not care one iota who he can beat in a race.

      The correct response is “I don’t know, I am trying to be the best qb not the fastest.” Especially, considering that earlier in the season Vick stated he could RUSH for over a thousand yards in Kelly’s offense. It shows his mind is again on not being a quarterback, but an athlete who plays qb. I don’t want “CODE/BALL PLAYER TALK” I want championship Broad Street parade production, I’m good on the qb who has 1.5 to 1 td to int talk.

      Chip Kelly brought Vick back for $3.5 million guaranteed and Vick gets another $3.5 million if he makes it out of training camp. In total the contract would pay him $10 million if he reaches all the incentives. That’s a little different then that $9 million you mentioned, no worries we wont count that comment as one of your “irrefutable facts.”

      So Chip Kelly is spending $500,000 to take a prudent approach with Vick and to judge with his own eyes what he can do. That is consistent with his behavior regarding players at Oregon, whether its switching Dion Jordan around until he found a home for him to keeping LeGarrete Blount on the team when the world screamed for him to be kicked out of school.

      The coach’s decision to bring back No. 7 on a one year deal is a far cry from a vote of confidence.

      You mention you were “knowledgeable & sensitive to facts” but failed to display any in your diatribe, and then choose to attack someone C’MON SON YOU’RE BETTER THEN THAT.

      Take a moment pat the cat on the back who beat you, go back to the lab and work harder so next time you wont need a dry erase board, music, or anything else to take away from you and your opinion. Im not trying to be disrespectful, just honest.

      I don’t care who may or may not have been picked prior to the contest, the bottom line is it’s a competition and I have my shot to prove my worth PERIOD.

      No excuses about an offensive line being hurt (For you Vick apologists), no excuses about where someone went to school (CSB whiners), no excuses about who I sometimes sound like. (Missanelli’s Stephen A. rip)

      Just one mic, 15 minutes, and the city #LETS GO

      Appreciate the time and best of luck with your Podcast and hope to be on so I can educate you on Vick.

    @Kwame...Well, First...Congratulations, Kwame!!! Now, as for Myself...while My remarks are More towards helping those Who WILL Enter the Dream Job Contest in the Future...I take AIM at there NOT being any REAL sort of Point system in place for this Contest. We were told to keep our Entries 'within Two Minutes', that went out the window. Contestants also entered a contest to become a "LIVE" Sports Talk Show Host' & Read from a SCRIPT!?!" That's as Ridiculous as going on 'Master Chef or Chopped' attempting to read from a Cook Book in front of the Judges...not saying you did...We were also told to 'Go Promote' our Entries & Generate Discussions. A Number of Us DID Exactly that...while Our FINALIST TOTALLY IGNORED This & COMPLETELY FAILED To do so...YOU Included...Now, in All Fairness, FAILING TO PARTICIPATE in A Contest Should Warrant a SERIOUS Point Deduction. But, I guess You guys are just that NICE like & WE were soooo far behind on points that it didn't matter. But, Life's NOT Fair, right...I know... & Maybe, just MAYBE, it might Make sense to include WARNING Contestants of Point Deductions for such ACTIONS....Especially for those who try to pull that ole 'LATE ENTRY/LASTING IMPRESSION' Trick...Now, there should also be a LIST of ways to ALSO Earn points POSTED...but, who's counting...

    Now, I guess there is Really Not Much that I can say to YOU, As YOU Are in the Finals & I am NOT...But, since I Can't Say Much...well, ACTUALLY...I won't have too, because you told on yourself...Solely looking at YOUR Logic saying 'Chip Kelly awarded Vick a $3.5Million signing Bonus just to SEE him play with his own EYES...' Seriously, Kwame...you're a Finalist for Peterman's sake...I'm JUST guessing, but Four years of game Film doesn't Tell the Ole Chipper all he needs to know about Vick...Can you Imagine that conversation with Jeffrey Lurie "I mean...It's just NOT ENOUGH...I need to see More, Jeff...I know we can cut him right now & not pay him another red cent, but I NEED another $3.5million of Your Money to really make sure...' But, that's just Me Being ME... Here's what Coach Kelly REALLY had to say to his Boss... "I looked at the films, and studied the tape. When you look at Michael, it's his toughness. That cannot be overrated at all," Kelly said. "We looked at his skill set. He still has that skill set. He can still throw the football." Courtesy of ESPN... In Closing, Honestly, Kwame...Your Rant on Vick is NOT 'Your own'...As when I speak against it, I'm Speaking not only to you, but the WHOLE Football watching World...as All of you probably thought That Vick Would've been long gone out of Philadelphia by now...just like the Eagles would be good last season...I wish We knew Each other personally, you would Owe Me A Cheese steak...along with the Dozens of others who Called Me CRAZY before learning the truth...again...listen to My Entry...Shady IS THE BAD Guy & he's making D-Jack & Macklin Look bad also...I said $9Million because the Final $1Million is IF he Leads the Eagles to the Super Bowl...in which WILL Look Highly Likely come Nov-Dec...
    & about My Board...In My 3stacks Voice "Hey, I'm talking Young Man as the Chalk in My Hand...I Will take yo LIL ASS to School..." Royal Flush... All in Good Fun & Sports Talk...Good Luck...& I'm sparing NO EXPENSE for My PodCast...

      @PratherH Prather, first apologies for the slow response. Back when I use to write for Bleacher Report I had a “24-hour rule” where I made sure to respond to everyone within 24 hours. Then the more comments I got it became harder to respond, thus scraping the 24 hour rule and adopting the three day rule. Now with everything going on I just make sure to respond.

      I want to thank you for being direct this time, that is something I always do. My father once told me “women insinuate men speak in specifics”, not calling you a woman, Im explaining why I always speak in specifics.

      Regarding the contest, all I could do is put my best attempt out there. I stuck to the rules they laid out. I did promote my video, but there were people who just promoted more. It happens. Im a sports guy, I save the marketing for the “dress shoes with jeans” crowd.

      I am concerned with what I do, not everyone else. I don’t want a point system, mainly bc I have never fit into anyone’s idea. For better or worse I am different, so I would never want a point or specifics list. Then you have to decide if you are going to deduct points if a guy only has x amount of twitter, facebook, google+, mentions. What happens when people circumvent the system and find ways to have multiple accounts, to do multiple mentions. You see it gets to fuzzy.

      Do you honestly believe that someone sat and waited to enter so they could leave a lasting impression? If they did, god bless them. Sports is a moment to moment world and I cant imagine someone waiting on sending a video and bypassing the big issues. Or maybe I don’t care, either way I hope you really don’t feel that way.

      You misquoted me Prather I never said “Chip Kelly awarded Vick 3.5 million” what I said was he gave him 3.5 guaranteed which really meant he only got $500,000. There is a big difference in statements. Coaches have long said “I need to see it with my own eyes”. Bill Parcells when Terrell Owens was missing camp stated “at some point I need to see what he’s got here”. Now I am not saying Chip Kelly is Bill Parcells I am just illustrating a coach’s mindset.

      You might want to watch that entire presser, specifically when Kelly says one has to look at “the landscape and see that there wasn’t much out there.” I love how Vick apologists negate things in their entirety, i.e. press conferences and Vick’s entire career. Just google Chip Kelly signs Vick and watch the ENITRE press conference.

      I thought Philly would be good last season with Vick at the helm. Mainly bc I was thinking as a fanatic and not logically. A career of inconsistent quarterback play combined with consistent turnovers has proven to be insurmountable for Vick’s most delusional fan.

      Shady is making Vick turn the ball over, got you.

      Shady is giving the defense a short field to work with, got you.

      Shady is missing line calls and allowing blitzing backers and dbs to roam free, got you.

      I have noticed that you have yet to acknowledge Vick’s culpability in any of the team’s failures. You could at the very least say “he needs to stay healthy”. But hey that’s a story for another day.

      Appreciate the good luck and be sure to send me a link to your podcast. I always love to hear why Vick isn’t the reason why the Eagles are struggling. However, he will not be on the roster come week one.
