"At the time, Greg and I believed that we saw the best game of Vick's career in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions. It was Vick's first NFL start since 2006, and he completed 21-of-34 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns. In that game, and in the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, Vick also amazed with a rocket arm that could fire off mercilessly accurate 40-yard bombs with minimal effort. I saw a Vick that stuck in the pocket and made plays with his head first, his arm second, and his feet third. It was only a question of keeping it going."
"What's clear in this incarnation of Michael Vick is a quarterback I've never seen before. He's a considerable improvement over the sometimes tentative, simple-read player who was still trying to integrate into a more advanced offense mere months ago. With the talent around him -- especially his deep receivers -- Vick now commands an offense that's lethal in the same way that Oregon's offense is lethal when it faces a half-decent Pac-10 opponent. That he's doing this in the NFL is the thing that leaves everyone incredulous -- and wondering just how long it can last. "
