Even in a 33-30 loss to the Chargers in Philadelphia, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was brilliant Sunday against San Diego.
Outshining Nick Foles to become Philadelphia’s starter, the 33-year-old Vick used his left arm and legs to combine for three scores at Lincoln Financial Field.
Vick has now thrown four touchdowns, against zero picks, for 631 yards over two games.
In addition, Bad Newz Kennels’ mastermind has scrambled 15 times for 77 yards and two scores.
Forced to perform last year behind a depleted line that couldn’t block Lindsay Lohan on smack , Vick is again surrounded by dynamic playmakers and receiving solid protection in the pocket.
Gaining bulk and brawn this offseason to survive on the gridiron, the 6-foot, 215 pound Vick is clearly the ideal man to operate Chip Kelly’s read-option attack.
With designed runs being called often, the greatest rushing quarterback in NFL history should take less of a pounding and perhaps stay somewhat healthy throughout the 2013-2014 campaign.
A four-time Pro Bowl passer, Vick missed winning the MVP race by a pube in 2010.
Working alongside Kelly, Ron Mexico will remain an extremely productive Eagle for the next 14 contests in “The City of Brotherly Love.”
Now healthier, stronger and better preserved, Michael Vick looks destined to collect another Comeback Player of the Year trophy in February.by
