Michael Vick keeping him behind the line, key to season

Predicting the future of an NFL team. If we were successful the majority of the time we would be Vegas rich. The Philadelphia Eagles this season like every other season and every other team will be successful if their quarterback is successful. Michael Vick, is he capable of taking the Eagles to the Super Bowl? The talented quarterback will need to do what he has not done for nearly his entire career,STAY HEALTHY!

For all of the statistic folks out there, “how many seasons has Vick played in all 16 games?”In Vicks 9 NFL seasons, he has played in 16 games once. Last season, Vick played in 13 games missing three to injury. The less then stellar Eagles season last year certainly was not lost on the back of those three games but with high expectations this season (AGAIN), Vick must stay healthy. The role of back-up quarterback is one that I along with the Eagles faithful do not want to experience. Winning will not come from Mike Kafka or Trent Edwards it will come from a productive and healthy VICK.

A strong offensive line which the Eagles still have despite the injury to Peters is the key to keeping Vick healthy. If Vick is running often, he will get hurt and the hopes of a Super Bowl will be carted off the field with him.Similar Posts:
