Eagles QB Michael Vick: “I Want to Start Again”

One of the hardest things to do in life is not overreact and get caught up in the emotion of the moment.

Michael Vick has had a rough couple of years (a lot of that is his own doing), but unless you dress your dog in sweaters you wanted him to have a second chance.

Everyone got a little nostagic watching Vick running around against the Packers like the Vick of old.

But lets put things in perspective, The Eagles have committed to Kevin Kolb and I don’t think you can just give up on him after a half of play, no matter how awful he looked.

Also the Packers prepared the entire week for Kolb, not for Vick, so I could see how the freelance style of Vick could cause them problems.

Here is what Vick had to say about his performance:

The QB, while noting he was disappointed with the loss, reiterated that it’s his goal to again be a starting QB in the NFL.

“Hopefully,” he said. “I still feel like I can play at a high level. I feel like if I had been out there for four quarters maybe we would have had a chance to win the game. But that’s all hindsight now.”

That is the attitude Vick should have and he was excellent this afternoon.

Once again proves my point why Vick was ill suited to be a “Wildcat QB”. He is at his best while freelancing at the quarterback position. With the “Wildcat” 90% of the time it is a run between the tackles and as you saw with the Eagles4th and 1 attempt that isn’t Vick’s strong suit.

My advice to him, just keeping working hard, don’t make any waves about being the starter and if he is truly gives the Eagles the best chance to win, he will be out on the field.

  • First off – I hate the Eagles… always have – always will… that being said, there should be no controversy. In reality most of the reasons why people are claiming Vick shouldn’t be the starting QB are unfounded. He is NOT a character risk, none more so than T.O. is. He has been more than well behaved off the field and unlike Ben Roethlisberger, was not involved in any way with the events that occurred after he left the party where shots were fired. Vick has become way more than just a running back as he showed tonight using his legs when he had to and putting the ball in the hands of those who present the opportunities. Most people’s arguement against Vick is based on him being a convicted felon, I’m glad they obviously have no clue as to how many convicted felons are playing in the NFL at the moment. As far as Kolb, I believe he is an o.k. quarterback but people who are mentioning his name with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning saying even they have bad halves or games, are simply ridiculous. Read my article on the situation:

    • I haven't heard anyone mentioned his character as a reason why he shouldn't start

  • You are wrong about everything Robadomus ( You are more like Freud since all your predictions are wrong). Vick will be the starting QB. and after he wins his second game (Kolb has a concussion) He will be named the starting Q.B. You were also wrong about Vick not being well suited for the wild cat when he averaged over 6 yards when he was in that formation( Before kolb got hurt). Kolb is the second best Q.B. on the team so hence he will be a back up when he recovers from the concussion. Can't wait to put this in your face. You are a nobody when it comes to actual sports.
