In past years, Mike Vick would chase a good game with a bad game. And a bad game with a good game.
This year, Vick has strung together three solid performances for the Eagles. Through three quarters, Vick has accounted for four touchdowns against the Jaguars.
Vick has completed 16 of 29 passes for 289 yards, an average of nearly 10 yards per attempt. He also has thrown three touchdown passes.
Vick has added to his aerial attack with three runs for 28 yards and a touchdown.
Philly leads the Jags, 28-3. If the score holds (and if it doesn’t I’ll drive to Jacksonville and water Jack Del Rio’s lawn), it will be the first time the Eagles have beaten Jacksonville in three tries.
Given that the game is being played on the site of one of the most disappointing games in franchise history — Super Bowl XXXIX — the Eagles also are exorcising some of Donovan’s demons today.
Just in time for Donovan to come “home”.
