Michael Vick Hasn’t Thrown An Interception In Two Games, Is He Finally ‘Getting It?’
94WIP Producer / Host@AdamReigner
The idea that after ten years as a starting quarterback that Michael Vick finally “gets it” is ludicrous.
Taking those seven magical games that earned Vick a 100 million dollar contract and forced the trade of Kevin Kolb to Arizona, the last time that Vick went 3 games without an interception was 2006 (only 5 times in his whole career). Vick has never “gotten it” nor will he ever, what you saw on Sunday night was the result of giving the ball to the best player on the team, LeSean McCoy.
The fact of the matter is that luck runs out and Michael Vick will never “get it”.
Believe it or not, interceptions have not really been Mike Vick's Achilles heel. In his career he has a 2.9 interception percentage, Peyton Manning's is 2.7. But bad decision making, fumbles, and low completion percentage are his problem. He did throw four interceptions in Cleveland, but only two in the last three games.
He needs to protect the ball, and I think the recent statements from Andy did wake him up a bit as to ball security vs. taking that big chance...taking a knee on 3rd down, for example, on Sunday.
But in the long term, the thing he needs to improve is the decision making, it was very good on Sunday, and we all hope that he keeps doing it.
Talent can be an aphrodisiac, but in football that can hurt, as not every play has to be a game winner
