The dynamic quarterback is still a new and rare breed in the NFL. Most players with that type of athleticism gravitate toward receiver or running back rather than under center, but any defensive coordinator can tell you how much havoc they create on a defensive game plan.It is undeniable, however, that a quarterback who relies as much on his legs as much as his arm has had limited playoff success. Dating back to Randall Cunningham - who most refer to as the original dynamic quarterback -they have a history of being good. But not great.Michael Vick set the world on fire in Atlanta when he burst onto the scene in 2001 with the legs of Barry Sanders and the arm strength of John Elway. A lack of accuracy and a "run-first" mentality, however, hindered his success in the playoffs, going only as far as the NFC championship game in 2004.Some quarterbacks in the likeness of Vick have made splashes in the league. Tavaris Jackson, Jason Campbell and Vince Young have come and gone, bu...

Michael Vick told reporters that he plans on getting “back to being the old Michael Vick.“
“I’ve got to play the game and leave it all out on the field and play aggressive and shoot it and run the ball when I feel there is a need to,” said Vick, via Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly. “If I get a seam, get a crack, take it. Just do what I’ve been born to do, blessed to do...
For all intents and purposes it looks as if Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will live to fight another day.
As Philadelphia prepares to face another struggling group in the New Orleans Saints, coach Andy Reid certainly can’t handle trying to repair his suspect defense and work in a new signal caller in the same week.
There must be order and the Saints can without a doubt offensively...
If there is anyone who can relate to the struggles Michael Vick is going through and the pressure he is under while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s Donovan McNabb. The Philadelphia media had its way with McNabb for years and there were times when the fans were worse. During an appearance on “NFL AM” Tuesday morning, McNabb defended Vick in the wake of reports that...

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid addressed the media on Thursday following the unconventional move on Wednesday of issuing a statement in support of quarterback Mike Vick.

There was a time not too long ago when having Mike Vick, Tony Romo or Mark Sanchez as your quarterback was considered living well in the NFL. Now it is like the sports version of marry, boff, kill.
If you had to choose one to build your franchise around, one to win a single game and death is not an option (neither is abstaining) whom do you go with?
Be careful with quick answers...
Job security in the NFL is nonexistent for just about anyone. The turnover at every position from the front office to the field is proof enough of that.
Sometimes, however, the heat gets kicked up a few degrees, and for a pair of NFC East teams, things are getting real hot.
Both the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles have undereachieved this season, and...
NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington reports neither Eagles quarterback has been made aware of a depth-chart change as of Monday. Michael Vick and waiting-in-the-wings rookie Nick Foles are still awaiting clarity on the situation after coach Andy Reid’s day-after press conference was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. Darlington suggests the storm could actually force the Eagles to stick...
Mike Vick will remain the starter over rookie Nick Foles.
Andy Reid quieted the unending speculation surrounding Mike Vick’s fate despite an off day for the team and confirmed that Vick would start for the team on Monday versus the New Orleans Saints.
The questions began swirling shortly after the team fell to 30-17 at the Linc on Sunday and Vick responded to a question about his...
We've learned a lot over the first 8 weeks. Some items have been great - some not so great. Here are some of the tidbits we've learned along the way:
If Roddy White has a big game, Julio Jones will struggle (and vice versa).
Cam Newton. Matt Stafford, and Michael Vick have not played up to our draft expectations but that should change this week.
DeAngelo Williams and...
