It seems like only an injury can slow the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, as every time he is out on the field he continues to dominate and perform unlike any Michael Vick we have ever seen.
Vick stated earlier in the week that he would be more cautious and wear extra padding, but that hasn’t stopped him from being the exciting Michael Vick that we all know and love to watch.
The Eagles quarterback has come back from injury and started right where he left off and that is on top.
Before the injury Vick was averaging 7.2 yards per carry and while many thought we would see a different Vick he has rushed nine times for 75 yards and a touchdown, 8.3 yards per carry.
When he has thrown the ball, his throws resemble bullets and perfect spirals. It almost looks as if Vick just flicks his wrist and the ball comes out perfectly every time.
While his accuracy hasn’t been perfect, he still was 17/29 for 218 yards and one touchdown defeating the Indianapolis Colts 26-24.
Vick is still the only starting quarterback in the NFL not to throw an interception in the 2010 season.
The young and vulnerable Philadelphia offensive line only gave up three sacks against the Colts and did an excellent job protecting Vick. His ability to move around and avoid the sack was the reason Vick was chosen as the starter initially, but he is proving to be the entire package.
There is only one year remaining on Vick’s contract with the Eagles so it is very possible that he will see one more large contract, which years ago no one ever thought was possible.
The question now is who will that contract come from?
