For Michael Vick, this won’t be his first time returning to Atlanta, a place where he had so many highlights in a Falcons uniform. He played as an Eagle in 2009 in Atlanta. However, it was in a backup role.
This time around, Vick will be at the helm for the Eagles, making his first start in Atlanta since 2006.
For the Eagles, this is going to be a very tough test early on in the season. For Vick, it’s a chance to rekindle some magic on the same field he spent six seasons on as a member of the Falcons.
Revenge isn’t going to be a motive here for Vick. Instead, he’ll be looking to prove to the Eagles that they’ve made the right choice in choosing him as their franchise quarterback of the future. He’ll be looking to prove that he can lead his team to a victory against one of the best teams in the NFC.
Here are 10 predictions I have for Vick in his first start in Atlanta since 2006.
