Michael Vick Playing Like It Is 2010

By noahweintraub

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Washington Redskins 33-20 in the first Monday Night Football game of the season. Michael Vick, Eagles’ quarterback, appears to be back in 2010 form.

Vick looked unstoppable for the majority of the game, as he totaled more than 200 yards and three touchdowns. The Redskins defense had no idea how to stop Eagles’ head coach Chip Kelly‘s no-huddle offense.

In 2010, Vick totaled 3,696 yards, 28 touchdowns and threw only six interceptions. He is going to be able to use his dynamic playmaking ability in this new offense.

Defenses will not be able to play too conservative against him; otherwise, he will pick them apart via short routes or screens. They also will not be able to play too aggressive against him; otherwise, he can beat them through the deep pass or by running for a huge gain.

All Vick has to do is stay healthy and he can easily have the best season of his career. It also helps having a running back like LeSean McCoy who is an explosive running back.

McCoy makes Vick’s life a lot easier because they cannot guard too heavily against the pass. It also helps Vick because it makes it easier for him to pull off great play action or quarterback runs.

Amazingly, Vick did not seem to miss one of his best wide receivers, Jeremy MaclinDeSean Jackson had an unbelievable game totaling more than 100 yards on seven catches and a touchdown.

Defenses will have to try to game plan and condition to stop the new-look Eagles offense. Vick should be unstoppable this year as long as defenses are not able to figure out how to stop the no-huddle offense.
