Michael Vick was expected to do no more than get a handful of snaps behind center, mostly in the "Wildcat" system, as he backed up Kevin Kolb.
After Kolb went down to injury in the second quarter of the first game of the season, Vick took over and went absolutely wild. He threw for 175 yards and a touchdown with 103 rushing yards, all in roughly one half of a game.
He quickly supplanted Kolb as the starting quarterback and excelled in the role over the next two games. He posted 575 passing yards and connected with his receivers for five touchdowns while rushing for 67 yards and running in for a touchdown of his own.
In Week 4, Vick made a spectacular run and nearly broke the goal-line on a broken play. However, just before he was about to reach pay dirt, he was sandwiched between two defenders as he got absolutely crushed.
The resulting injury has kept him out of the last three contests, but he's set to make his triumphant return against the Colts.
What's most impressive is that in only two full games and two limited ones, he has posted enough points to be ranked 23rd overall among quarterbacks.
Spread his production over the first eight weeks of the season and he would easily be a top five quarterback.
