5 Reasons Michael Vick Is Still a Franchise Cornerstone for Philadelphia Eagles

Michael Vick entered the 2011 season as the Eagles franchise quarterback, coming off a 2010 season where he played like an MVP-caliber player. 2011 was supposed to be a special season for Vick with a much-improved offensive line and all his key skills-players back.

However, 2011 has been a season of regression for Vick at times. He has struggled to read both blitzes and coverages and has been a turnover machine with 16 total turnovers in 11 starts this season. Some experts have even suggested that the Eagles should draft a quarterback early in next April's draft.

Even with Vick's struggles this season, he is still a cornerstone to the Eagles organization.

He has shown what an impact he makes on the offense in the last two weeks, and his ability to read defenses has greatly improved as well.

Michael Vick still gives the Eagles the best chance to win. He will continue to be their franchise quarterback as long as his body allows him to. At 31, there's no reason why he can't continue to play at an elite level for the next three or four years at the very least.
