When the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Philadelphia Eagles this week, Michael Vick will make only his second NFL start since spending almost two years out of football in prison.
His first? Last week's evisceration of the Detroit Lions. Vick threw for 284 yards and two scores on 21-of-34 passing, earning a 101.8 passer rating in the Eagles' 35-32 win this past Sunday.
In that game's immediate aftermath, Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid indicated that concussed former starter Kevin Kolb was still atop the depth chart. But Reid changed his tune on Tuesday, gushing that Vick "is playing out of his mind right now" while naming him the Eagles' quarterback for the foreseeable future.
That's awfully high praise from a coach who's mentored the likes of Brett Favre and Donovan McNabb.
After two impressive performances in Philadelphia's first two games, Vick has spectators wondering if he might be even better in 2010 than he was before that two-year absence.
If that's true, how in the world are the Jaguars going to stop him?
