Philadelphia Eagles: Michael Vick Returns to Falcons' Georgia Dome
Michael Vick will make his first start in the Georgia Dome since being the Falcons star quarterback, and all eyes will be on how he deals with the pressure.
Vick has played in Atlanta for the Eagles, but that was back in 2009 when he was a back-up to Donovan McNabb. He made the most of his opportunities, throwing for a touchdown on one of his two throws and running for a touchdown on one of his five rushes.
I imagine the Falcons fans are going to be fired up to cheer against Vick, who was their prized possession before he went to jail. Although Vick only lead the Falcons to the playoffs twice in his years there, he was the star of the team and the most popular jersey in the stadium.
After the win last Sunday Vick looked forward to this match-up with the Falcons. He told Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia:
“I’m going to have fun. I’m going to enjoy that game. Going back to Atlanta and having an opportunity to play in front of the crowd that I think I provided a lot of excitement to, that I brought a lot of wins to in that dome, it’s going to be great.”
Vick actually missed the Falcons game last season in Philadelphia, so this will be his first full-go against his old team.
Falcons fans can't be too upset that Vick isn't their quarterback anymore, as Matt Ryan has turned into one of the leagues best. However, I imagine a lot of Atlanta fans miss the excitement and play-making ability that comes along with Vick.
Vick is going to leave everything on the field Sunday, in what will be a very hostile environment.
