Philadelphia Eagles: How Long Until Michael Vick Gets Hurt?
As has been said time and time again, Michael Vick is the most exciting player in the league because of his ability to turn a busted play into a first down by using his legs. Vick seems to have that internal clock that lets him know 'the pass rush is about to get me, I better take off and run'.
But, with all this excitement comes one big risk, injury.
Unlike Tim Tebow, who is built more like a running back or tight end than he is built like a quarterback, Michael Vick is relativity thin and small and built more like a quarterback.
The combination of a smaller frame and a tendency to take off on the run could make for a bad combination when it comes to taking big hits.
For many people, especially when talking about fantasy football, the question is not will Vick get hurt, but when. I imagine his style of play and history of injuries scares both Eagles fans and coaches, who must counter their excitement every time he takes off running with a bit of worry.
For both Eagles fans, and football fans in general, an injury to Vick would be disappointing and could potentially cost Philadelphia any real chance of competing for the NFC Championship.
I sincerely hope Vick doesn't get hurt, as I love to watch him play, but every time he drops back tonight and in the future I am going to hold my breath and hope that he doesn't get drilled by a defender.
