You'll recall this, Howard Eskin's report that the Eagles might have some interest in bringing the gunslinging kid aboard as a backup in 2011. This scared a lot of us.

And then we got even scared-er when Vick tweeted earlier today, "I would be honored to have Brett Farve as a backup. That will be amazing Learning how to toy with defenses the way he did his whole career." Now that tweet's gone.

Ordinarily we get ornery when a Tweet disappears, when erroneous info slips forever into the internet ether. But we'll be okay with this one. Forever vanish, Favre.
