One could argue that turnovers are, in fact, unlucky, and that the turnover problems were caused by a few reckless runs and tipped passes, which can be easily fixed.
However, a look at the tape shows that the Eagles have actually been lucky to have turned the ball over only as many times as they have. They should have more.
Vick has lost five fumbles so far, but he has fumbled a total of eight times. In the game-winning drive against the Cleveland Browns, Vick was hit by a defender while scrambling for a first down and instantly lost the ball. While falling, he somehow recovered the ball with one arm and kept the play alive.
Some would call it his determination and drive to win. Others would call it luck. The ball could have bounced much further away, in which case the Browns would have certainly recovered it and won the game.
Against the Steelers, Vick fumbled two times, but it should have been three. He slid head-first and did not secure the ball tightly. The ball slammed against the ground and popped into the air, making it easy for the Steelers to recover it.
The play was luckily taken back by the referees, who noted that Vick's leg was touched by a Steeler's leg. Although that contact had nothing to do with Vick's fumble, he was technically down by contact. Again, lucky.
We also have to consider all the times Vick has thrown right into coverage and the ball was not picked off.
