Cowboys vs Eagles: Can Michael Vick Accomplish What Donovan McNabb Could Not?
With former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb in the twilight of his career, one has to wonder if current Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has enough time to achieve what McNabb never did: a Super Bowl victory.
Michael Vick, who infamously lost a few seasons while he served time in prison, found new life in 2010 with a breakout year for the Eagles. Vick, who has always been a double threat with his arm and running ability, in only 12 games last year, posted over 3,000 yards passing, 21 touchdowns with only six interceptions.
Through Week 7 in 2011, Vick has struggled somewhat, fighting off nagging injuries while already throwing 8 interceptions. Vick's performance against Buffalo in Week 5 was especially poor when he was picked off four times in the Eagles' 31-24 loss.
During his time in Philadelphia, McNabb led the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl appearance. His toughness and stamina were questioned after Super Bowl XXXIX, most notably by Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens.
Whether the constant criticism of McNabb during his time in Philadelphia was warranted, he still will most be remembered for not being able to win the Super Bowl, even with Philadelphia teams that were strong on both sides of the ball.
Michael Vick's honeymoon in Philadelphia may be ending soon. Leading the Eagles back to an NFC Championship will be a great start for Vick's continued quest to rewrite his personal legacy. Vick has won big playoff games before, but is his window for a championship closing soon, or will he have a few shots at glory?
