Vick came back from his injury December 11, 2011. The Eagles of course are not a team of one player, but it seems that all quarterbacks are judged on the wins and losses of the entire team, so let's see how things have gone in the 8 games since his return.
Average yards gained: 388
Average opponent yards gained: 282
Average score: 24
Average opponent score: 16
Hmmmmmm. I think it's safe to say that if Vick has his first 8 games of 2012 with a result this good, he'll be talked about as elite by the talking heads and mentioned in the MVP conversation. His run started last year, and obviously he isn't keeping the opponents to just over 2TD worth of points a game all by himself, but you have to admit, since his return the Eagles have played as well as or better than any other team in the NFL.
What do you think? Co-incidence?
