I Was Wrong About Michael Vick

When the Eagles brought Michael Vick back after the 2009 season I didn’t like it. My dislike had nothing to do with his criminal record, it was based solely on his football record. I thought Vick was a phenomenal athlete and an average quarterback. I saw many of his games with Atlanta over the years. In many cases he seemed to scrap the play that was called and improvise (admittedly he didn’t have much to work with on some of those Atlanta teams). His accuracy throwing the ball was suspect. I doubted he could make the players around him better.

I was wrong.

This season Vick has taken massive strides. He is moving through reads, making good decisions, looking for receivers until he crosses the line of scrimmage, throwing the ball with precision, and providing leadership.

Credit is due to Vick for this improvement, it is also due to Andy Reid and the Eagles’ coaching staff for seeing his potential and maximizing it.
