Why Michael Vick Will Succeed As the Eagles' Starting Quarterback

Michael Vick has again taken the NFL by storm.  Like it or not, Vick is the talk of the league and, for now is one of the leagues biggest stars.  Vick is back and the Eagles organization is the one to thank. 

Teams in need of a quarterback have to be kicking themselves right now that they didn't take a chance on Vick after he was released from prison.  Vick almost settled for the UFL, but then Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb came knocking.

A year removed from being the third string quarterback and being used sparingly in a wildcat like formation, Vick is a starter in the NFL again.  He also seems to be a better passer than anyone remembers.

Vick is in an offense that suits his skill set, and he still has the uncanny ability to make guys miss in the pocket.  For evidence, when a Lions defender was blitzing Vick on his blind side last Sunday, he spun away from the sack faster than you could hit the "B" button on your Xbox controller and picked up the first down.

No other quarterback in the league moves like Vick, plays like Vick or is as exciting as Vick.  He's likely to hit a few rough patches as the season wares on, and everyone knows the Philadelphia media will let him hear it, but that's another challenge Vick will have to defeat.

Here are a few reasons why Vick will succeed as a starting quarterback in the NFL again, this time for the Philadelphia Eagles.
