11:17 AM ET 11.14 | When Michael Vick suffered a "significant" concussion in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, nothing was thought much of it beyond the fact that he'd be out the next week, and Eagles fans would finally get to see Nick Foles take over the starting role. But according a report, source close to the situation says that Vick's concussion is truly serious and that it could alter the course of his career -- and even end it. Vick is no stranger to contact and he's historically not been one to shy away from it either. But he may have paid a serious toll for the decade worth of brutality his body has endured, as those inside the Eagles organization fear this concussion will end Vick's season. If it does, the Eagles have even more to justify not paying Vick $15.5 million next season, and Vick is seemingly in for a long and fruitless job hunt.

You know what they do to underperforming players, right?

Tie-em-up and beat-em like a dog shaped pinata!

Philthy.

He's 5' 11" and weighs about 200 pounds. He can't read defenses and doesn't know how to protect himself, such as slide. He also has a really bad rap for being a dog killer and he's also 32 years old. Name one of 32 who would want him to be their franchise QB?

You're right, Creepy. Andy Reid would make a much better President than Obama.

I'd love to see him channel his inner William Howard Taft.

Who would take a hard look at Vick if he were a healthy FA? Anybody with a worse QB, like the Bills, Jags or Chiefs. Anybody looking to make a media splash, like the Cowboys. And the team that qualifies for both: the Jest.

yeah, yeah...already knew all of this...but what I REALLY want to know: Does Tebow still suck today? I didn't see a thread going over his failures of the day so I have to wonder, did pigs learn to fly overnight?

Vick is only 190....10 lbs doesn't make a big difference between 350 and 360 lbs linemen, but the difference between 190 and 200 is massive...

Pretty thin argument unless Philly is going to start handing out free cell phones to the masses.

Vick needs to retire.

November 15, 2012  09:27 AM ET

A truly serious concussion is not good, hope he recovers, and no long term problems occur.

November 15, 2012  09:33 AM ET

I heard he awoke the other day and said to someone "I'm a pro football player?" "How the heck did that happen?" "I used to be a doggie day care owner"

And then what? Vick needs the NFL (and the structure of football), more than the NFL needs Vick. Unless V-Tech gives him an opportunity (gift) on the coaching staff in what ever capacity, I see a bleak, long term future for him...

Hope he kept his money this time around... because he's gonna need it.
