Mike Vick Manned Up Big Time.

Posted August 01, 2013

Right now not only is he separating himself in the QB competition, he did something very impressive in my view. He stud up went against his family, angry teammates, and backed Riley Cooper. Mike Vick stood up and was a leader. Now it’s true Mike is coming from the perspective of one who has made terrible and disgusting decisions in his life and he also did the typical “I’m sorry cause I got caught” athlete apology, but nevertheless Mike stood up and backed his guy. With Mike doing so he actually bridged the gap, and allowed for healing to begin in the Eagles locker room. He became that bridge and initiated that healing. I have to admit Mike is doing everything in every way to win this competition. He did something that none of the other quarterbacks could do in this situation. He stood up and led. I don’t know where it’s been, but these are the types of things (both on and off the field) that made people start believing in Mike again. I’m still skeptical of Mike’s ability to do the necessary things on the field (cut down the turnovers, slide more, protect himself, stay off the injury list, and so on), but his actions have really shown me what type of leader he can be. I hope Mike keeps this stuff up.
