Vick gives glimpse of what's next
Vick's best play was a 13-yard strike to
When Vick came to Philly, he said he was eager to learn from the coaching staff that helped turn McNabb into a Pro Bowler. They'll likely try to help him become more of a pocket quarterback. It should be very interesting to see if he gets more opportunities to throw in Philadelphia's next preseason game and if he can remain patient.
"He's still got that speed," Harvey said. "But I was close enough to trip him up just enough and make sure he didn't get anything going."
"I can't explain the feeling," Vick said. "It was unbelievable the way I was embraced and the warm welcome I received. It actually made me screw up one of my reads. I wanted to please the crowd and I actually made a bad play. I came back from it, but it was awesome."
Only a handful of protestors made the trip to stadium. That might change when Vick plays in a regular-season game, but the animal-rights activists weren't going to trek to South Philly in rush-hour traffic for a preseason game. The NAACP showed up to support Vick and was mobbed by the media, but the group's appearance made little real impact
Knowing Philadelphia fans, they'll support Vick as long as the team is winning. If they lose, and Vick is part of the reason, they'll start bombarding local radio station 610 WIP to ask why they bothered bringing in a player with so many issues.
"When you're trying something new, it's important that you get into a rhythm first and then try to work it and work it in there in the offense," McNabb said. "I thought we did some great things that presented some pressure to the defense, but at some point you have to get into a rhythm and get things going down the field and move the chains."
Philadelphia did move the ball relatively easily in the series they didn't use Vick. If McNabb is on his game, it's not clear how inserting Vick will help the flow of the offense.
