Michael Vick's first practice as a Philadelphia Eagle is in the books.

Still feels pretty strange writing that, I must admit.

But by all accounts (meaning Eagletarian and Birds' Eye View), Vick looked good throwing the football.

Above are photos of Vick in a Birds uniform for the first time, and below is video footage from the AP.

After seeing the pics, I realized that the right tackle position now carries even more importance. It'll be Vick's blindside. If he plays five, eight or 10 snaps a game at QB, it's crucial that the Birds have a right tackle they can depend on. Or if Donovan McNabb should go down and Vick were to step in (although it obviously could still be Kevin Kolb), same deal.

Just something to think about, given that Shawn Andrews is still on the shelf, which I wrote about earlier.
