1st Game Back is a Success.

Although Mike Vick didn’t start, was fairly rusty and didn’t play much, he still managed to go out there and show the world that he was willing to do whatever it takes.

Thats right Mike!

Thats right Mike!

Sure, its a long road back until Vick becomes the beloved sports icon that he once was, but he’s on the right track… Tonight he played multiple positions (QB, Wide out and lining up in the famous wild cat formation), showing that he’s more than just an unconventional quarter back.

With Andy Reed as head coach, I think that We could utilize Mike for more things than just a back up QB. I can see him doing what Reggie Bush does, catching pitches out on the wings and making plays with his feet. What makes it more dangerous, is that he has a cannon that is out of this world! So making the throw down the field is something that defensive coordinators will always have to consider. The Wild Cat offense is just child’s play when factoring in the slew of offensive threats that the Eagles possess.

Because of all the drama surrounding Vick, the city has been polarized, which makes it hard to feel out the general consensus on how the fans will accept him. But when he first stepped out on the field, the crowd was rather welcoming to say the least. We know how things can get with us Philly fans…

“It was awesome. When I was running out onto the field I was listening to see what the reaction was going to be,” Vick said. “I was very pleased. I really didn’t expect that reaction, but I was very thankful.”

I’m sure the city of Philly will come around as a whole, and will sooner rather than later, appreciate Mike Vick for who he is, let alone what he’s capable of doing. Its just gona take some time, but I’m glad he is here..

Welcome Michael Vick!

Eagles win 33-32.
