In the second preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Philadelphia Eagles as a team overall looked lost and disorganized. The Steelers made easy work of them, cruising easily to a 24-14 win and a 21-0 lead against the starters at halftime as well. Most worrying, however, about the loss is the incredibly poor play of Michael Vick at quarterback.
Vick completed 5-of-12 passes for 47 yards and an alarming three interceptions in just one half of play. Although it was just preseason and there is plenty of time to work out any kinks, the Eagles were so confident that Vick would continue to play well that they traded away their long-term project of the future in Kevin Kolb for a shot to win now with Vick. While Vick does not need to be spectacular in 2011, he cannot play poorly and turn the ball over like he did against Pittsburgh.
This article is evaluating the quarterback play of Vick from the second week of preseason. The categories consist of: accuracy, decision-making, scrambling/elusiveness and calmness in the pocket.
