Michael Vick must expand his bag of tricks to stay healthy

This point is less about packages and schemes and more about Vick’s habits and routines. His spin move, his shoulder shimmy and even his ankle dance...

Michael Vick Needs to Be More Like Donovan McNabb, Avoid Injury if Eagles Want to Go Anywhere This Season

When it's solid advice to tell an NFL quarterback to be more like Donovan McNabb, that quarterback must be in serious trouble. Michael Vick is.
