Vick, Super-Eagles win vs. Browns

26 Aug

Vick regained slight form last night

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles rebounded after last week’s abysmal showing in Pittsburgh with a drubbing of the Cleveland Browns last night by leading the Eagles to three scoring drives. Vick used his legs this time and rushed for about 24 yards, including one for a touchdown, which put the Eagles up 17-0 in the second quarter. He threw the ball exceptionally well by completing 10 of 18 passes for about 98 yards, but did not throw any balls in the Eagles star wide receiver, DeSean Jackson who was frustrated the whole night because he finished the game without a reception. He did not take risks by throwing the ball deep downfield after last week’s poor results from that. Vick was frustrated last week so in the game last night against the Browns, he decided to play it safe and throw the ball underneath for short completions instead of long completions. His backup Vince Young did very well and led the Eagles to their last scoring drive, which put them up 24-0 in the third quarter. On the other hand, Colt McCoy of the Browns did not look like himself and often seemed rattled by the Philadelphia defense who showed up to play last night as opposed to the week before. Asante Samuel made a pick last night, but Nnmadi Asomugha was a no show once again, which is disappointing so far since that is their biggest off-season acquisition. It will take time for the Eagles to get things together, but they have enough time to prepare for Week 1 and get everyone riding the right ship.
