2011 Topps Clay Matthews - the card that changed Michael Vick's fate - the 100 million dollar play

I had previously posted that Calvin Johnson's 2011 Score card  showed action from week one of the 2010 NFL season. Well, 2011 Topps Clay Matthews card shows him sacking Kevin Kolb on the play that Kolb got injured in week one of the 2010 NFL season. Michael Vick would then replace Kolb as the starter for the rest of the season (at least until Vick got hurt again). Michael Vick performance led to the trading  of Kolb in the off season and which then led to the Eagles signing Vick to a $100 million dollar contract.

  1. Wow... great history lesson. I wonder if Vick ever said thank you to Matthews.
