Does Michael Vick Deserve This?

Pondering Michael Vick’s Future in Football

Since returning to the NFL in 2009 Michael Vick has said and done the right things. But the battering he’s taken from pass rushers – and the changes in his game – cast doubt on his football future. Dating back to 2010, including one playoff game, Vick is a respectable 18–16 as Philadelphia’s starter, but in his last 24 starts he’s gone 10–14 with 25 interceptions and 11 lost fumbles. He’s suffered an array of injuries and missed seven starts since ’10. Now, writes Matt Gagne, it’s possible that he will miss one more, next Sunday at Washington.

One Eagle said of a particularly hard hit on Vick, “Peyton Manning would have seen that coming” (page 65).
