Mike Vick


Watching this game was difficult. It was difficult because my hopes, after escaping with two wins in the first two games, came crashing down after today's game. It is hard to say this because I had such high hopes for this eagle's team. I am starting to believe that a 31 yr old Vick cannot take a team to the Superbowl. He was sad against the blitz. When the team did have good pass protection, he held onto the ball far too long. If it didn't result in fumbles, it resulted in holding calls. The line can't block that long. No O-line can. It saddens me to say all of this b/c if we could get the 2010 Vick back this eagles team could go up against any team in the league. Unfortunately we are getting a worse version of 2011 Vick. I think Nick Foles should at least be given a shot. He is much taller than Vick at 6'6, so he can see over the line. He showed some poise in the preseason. I know, I know it was the preseason, but he can't be worse than 9 turnovers in 3 games. If he is merely a game manager, it will prevent giving opposing teams a short field 4 times a game. Another plus side to Foles coming in might mean the Eagles focus on the run game early. I feel like we are keeping Vick in b/c he is such a profile player. Who cares what you did in the past. If you don't produce now we should go to something that might work. It can't hurt at this point.
