Mike Vick? Really?

Posted on: September 21, 2010 6:07 pm
 

Mike Vick is the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Why?

Is Andy Reid really giving up on Kevin Kolb that quickly? Vick has played well in his two appearances, but you don't trade away Donovan McNabb with the idea of making Kolb your long-term solution and then give up on it after one half of football.

You know what you have in Vick: A wonderfully athletic player that can do amazing things with his feet but is limited with his ability to be a quality passer.

Vick has never been a good passer. This is a passing league -- more even than when he was the starter in Atlanta.

Kolb suffered a concussion in the opening loss to the Green Bay Packers. Vick came in and played well and then played well in a start last week at Detroit. But the Lions aren't good on defense. Then again, neither are the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Eagles opponent this week.

Teams will say they hate preparing for Vick because of his improvisational skills. But talking to coaches over the years, that is offset by the fact that he doesn't throw it as well.

I guess the Eagles decided in a half that Kolb isn't their answer.

Somewhere Donovan McNabb has to be chuckling.

The Eagles have really botched their quarterback situation.

Get ready, Philly. The Single Wing is your new offense.

It really is scary how wrong you were on every single point in this article. It's almost as if Vick read this article and made a checklist and point to crush everything you wrote in this article. And to add insult to injury, Mcnabb is crying after being humiliated by Vick, not chuckling. I seriously marvel at how wrong this article was on every level. This single wing offense is pretty explosive huh lol! Wow.

I will let the results speak for themselves, so far so good.

All else is BS, to include the peeps that cannot forgive his acts against animals.


GO HUMAN CAUSE (it is more important)

Vick forces the defense to stay modest, something they desperately need in the absence of Westbrook.  Michael is definatly not as accurate of a passer as Kolb but his passing lanes will see more space with his ability to take off.

Vick led the first team to beat the Packers at Lambeau in the Playoffs in history.  Ever.

It is amazing how much worse this article is than the one posted by Clarke Judge. At least he put some effort into his article, Prisco sounds like an ignorant fan at a local bar.

CBS Sprotsline, Why does this guy still work for you?  <br /><br />I like how he points out the Lions game, but doesn't say anything about the Packer's defense.  You are going by what Mike Vick was and not what he is now.  Didn't Reid turn McNabb into a pocket quarterback?  In both games, he was looking at passing first and running as a last resort.  Look at the 4th quarter of the Green Bay game when he had a clear path for a td and decided to throw instead.  Mike Vick gives the Eagles the best chance to win now.  How does Reid look his players in the eyes and tell them that they're sticking with Kolb?  I am sure his players want to win now.  I do think that Reid should of at least gave this week's start to Kolb to see how he does.  I have no problem with this move and the Eagles will be better because of it.  Another thing, Vick will be better suited to combat the Eagles horrible offensive line.<br /><br />It amazes me how "so-called" experts know little about Philadelphia teams. <br /><br />
