The most talked about and most anticipated return to the National Football League of a quarterback not named Favre takes place against the Jacksonville Jaguars tonight with the return of Michael Vick. Fans like me wonder will it be the same number “7” that was potential highlight waiting to happen with every snap from center. With over 3,000 yards on the ground in his career, it easily shows that Vick is the best running quarterback and by far the most electrifying QB to ever play in the NFL that I ever saw. The passing thing well let just say a completion percentage of nearly 54 percent is just what it is mediocre.
Vick’s speed and his ability to run the ball maybe the greatest asset to his game, and with the emergence and widespread use of the Wildcat formations, he becomes more of a potential threat to defenses. Now the biggest question that will not be answered tonight, but how do Eagles’ plan to use Vick in the regular season along with Donovan McNabb. Quarterback position deals with rhythm and do the coach break up that rhythm to get Vick some snaps. McNabb is a great quarterback who should be calling the signals every play and the Wildcat is more gadgetry than anything else. A team cannot win on consistent basis with package that replaces starting QB with the backup quarterback even if it is Michael Vick who is a proven winner.
For tonight all eyes will be on Michael Vick, he will be back where he belongs and that is on the field. His debt to society has been paid and hopefully he does not screw up this chance to play again but more importantly as a person his life does not sink to level that he saw in the previous two years. Excitement of weaving through defenses, hurdling would-be tacklers, and just putting the “How did he” or “Did you see that” back into the game is needed. As a fan I say it is required. Hopefully we as fans get a glimpse of old Mike and truly answer the question is he
“Back to Amaze?”
