A fair amount of Reid’s roundtable interview with reporters in West Palm Beach, Fla. was devoted to the importance of Michael Vick staying healthy. But just as noteworthy was Reid’s admittance that he gave Vick too much responsibility in calling out protections pre-snap last season. "You can’t take quite as much as we did early and do that with a guy," Reid said. "Even though he’s been in the league as long as he has, it’s a different [protection] scheme. If I had to go back on it, I would have backed up and just gradually fed him the stuff." Much was written during the preseason about Vick’s reading of blitzes and how his success or failure would greatly influence the offense’s production. Well, aside from the first Cowboys game, he wasn’t very good in that regard. With a year under his belt, I wouldn’t be surprised to see center Jason Kelce take over pre-snap protection calls.
