'We want Vick' chants start already

Well, that didn't take long.

'We want Vick' chants start already


Well, that didn't take long.

Apparently some Eagles fans saw enough on five plays from Michael Vick to call for him to replace Donovan McNabb in the third quarter.

The "We want Vick" chants broke out at the Linc and could be heard on the TV broadcast after McNabb threw an interception.

Those of you at the Linc could give a better idea of just how loud they were and how many people were participating.

As always, I assume it was a vocal minority, but again, you could hear the chants on TV. The national media should have a field day with this one.

We knew this would come at some point, but I figured it might wait until at least the regular season started. What happens when Vick is eligible to play and McNabb has a bad game, or a bad quarter, or a bad play?
