A Philosophical Question

There have always been great philosophical question out there from: ""If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around does it still make a sound'' or "Is there a Supreme Being? If so, what is His nature? Did He create the universe?''

This week the Eagles created their own NFL style philosophical question. "'When is a Wildcat Offense not really a Wildcat offense.'' During the game on Sunday, the Eagles used Mike Vick as their Wildcat quarterback in different situations.

Last year, Ronnie Brown and the Dolphins made the Wildcat formation popular and took the league by storm. In the Wildcat a running back or a skill position players lines up under center and then runs or passes the football.

If you look at the Eagles in the Wildcat with Vick, there is one thing that is different. Vick is a quarterback and if you play him at quarterback does that make him a Wildcat quarterback or just a quarterback playing in different situations. I know its a small question, but it has been bothering me since talk of Vick in the Wildcat started to come up. How can it be a Wildcat if he is a quarterback.
