Michael Vick: Time to lead Eagles Past Packers and Drop Dog-Fighting Image?
Michael Vick is ready to lead the Eagles by the Packers, and beating the Packers may hold the key to further burying his dreadful personal decisions that are still haunting his past, and present.
When the Eagles face Green Bay on Sunday, there will be much more at stake for Vick than just moving on in the playoffs. Health concerns are swirling around him, and he is getting banged up and sacked often in recent weeks.
Vick plays the game with a fast-paced, physical style. What makes so many of these run-and-gun QBs successful is the ability to bounce back from small injuries. Vick is listed as probable, and there's little doubt he will play. However, he is the key to the offense, and Kevin Kolb was largely ineffective in his absence, leading to Vick having to come in late in the game.
NBC Sports adds that Vick will likely play the duration of the contest, and head coach Andy Reid has confidence in his QB:
"Coach Andy Reid indicated Wednesday that Michael Vick (quad) will not be limited in practices this week.
Reid neglected to put a percentage on Vick's health, but it certainly sounds like the thigh will not be a problem. 'I think he'll be fine,' said Reid. 'He'll play.' Vick later added that he will be 100 percent by Sunday. We're not buying speculation that Vick could be on a short leash if he doesn't pick up the Packers' blitzes. Barring injury, he'll play the entire game."
