Quarterback Michael Vick proved that he not only can handle the Jets' offense well, but he still can run with the best of them even at his age.

With cornerback Dimitri Patterson looking confused and ineffective in the Jets' secondary, it has everyone worried about just how well it'll hold up against quarterbacks like Andrew Luck. He was easily able to dink and dunk all over that part of the field, and while Dee Milliner was able to hold his own, he can't do it alone. Should the Jets hit the panic button after just one week of preseason football? Only time will tell what happens.
