06:59 AM ET 05.03 | If you follow Eagles safety Colt Anderson on Twitter, you know the headline: "Vick just beat Shady in a 40 yard race." But there's more to the story, which we've obtained from a league source with knowledge of the situation. McCoy had been riding [Michael 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. So they lined up and took off, and Vick didn't just beat McCoy. Vick smoked McCoy by roughly five yards over a 40-yard distance, and their teammates went nuts. It has no direct relevance to the fate of the 2013 Eagles, but it proves that the "old man" can still move.

"It has no direct relevance to the fate of the 2013 Eagles"

Which makes it a non-story.

And here's why: that was in a straight line. Vick always runs the most zig-zagged pattern possible.

Actually, the fact that Vick asked Kelly first and Kelly said yes is a good indication that there's some order yet they're loose in the Eagles camp. Not a bad thing.

Vick can still pick 'em up and put 'em down.

Having all those big guys in the other uniform chasing after you is a good reason to run fast.

Vick's record speaks for itself.

Until a young person learns to shut up they can be a real pain in the arse. Bravo Michael!

Doesn't it.

Age and treachery will always triumph over youth and enthusiasm...

Of course Vick won. The murdering psychopath used to run after his dogs so he could drown and electrocute them.

May 3, 2013  10:28 AM ET

Funny, glad to see him put the guy in his place, that's what the captain does!!!!

A controversial training regiment for sure.

He could use Bigger Hands!!!!!

Vick has blazing speed...period.

He has never shown consistent accuracy over his career...if he can improve that, and stay on the field, he is a weapon for sure.

That would throw off his dog pursuit running technique.

Mc Coy's dress probably made it hard to run for her.

May 3, 2013  02:33 PM ET

don't be so sure...McCoy just got embarrassed(understatement) in front of the team by the team's supposed "leader"...that can fester most of the season and cause locker room issues when it pops up at a critical point near the end of the season...
