Mike Vick Was Very Impressive.

Posted August 10, 2013
In the sample size of the two quarterbacks I would have to give the early edge to Mike Vick. Vick made three very impressive plays against the Patriots. The pass to Jackson was a thing of beauty. He placed the ball in a spot only where Jackson could get it and you saw the burners click on. Jackson was going to bring that one down for HIS guy. Despite how great that play it was two other plays I found to be more impressive. The first was a read option snap where Vick rolled to his RIGHT stopped and threw a medium ranged strike to Riley Cooper. On a side note did anyone notice how awkward the crowd was after the catch? They didn't know it they should cheer or boo him. There was just an awkward mumer from the crowd. Vick moving to his right has always been an achillies for him, but on that play it just seemed natural to him. The second play didn't amount to much of anything, but it was still very important and very impressive. Mike threw a dump off pass to Brent Celek after getting a little pressure in his face. He didn't hold the ball to try and make a big play. He didn't take a hit, or a sack. He didn't force the ball into coverage. He just took what the defense gave him and got rid of the football. These are the times when Mike would have taken the unnecessary hit to try and make the big play. Those are the hits that accumulate and ultimately knock him out of games. This time he didn't take that hit. Not taking that hit allows him to play another down, another series, another game, and so on. We still haven't seen him attempt a slide, but these actions alone are very promising for Mike and his future with the Eagles. Another quite noticeable thing was how well the offensive line blocked for Vick. The gave him a lot of time to make that touchdown throw to Jackson. Last night Mike Vick looked like a 10 year plus veteran.
