In an interview with Bob Costas of NBC’s Football Night in America, Eagles quarterback Mike Vick addressed a variety of topics, including his propensity for making things happen with his feet when everything falls apart around him.
“This may sound crazy to everybody, but sometimes I have to go back and watch what I do,” Vick said. “It happens so instinctively. I’ve been blessed with abilities that very few are blessed with. I’m thankful for that. . . . The game still seems hard to me so I think that’s a good thing because it will keep me striving to be my best.”
Still, there’s a concern that when Vick uses those abilities, he’ll eventually get hurt. As Eagles sideline reporter Howard Eskin mentioned during Friday’s PFT Live, Vick had the presence of mind last week to slide while going horizontal in order to keep the clock running against the Rams. At some point, Vick has to learn how to slide when going vertical.
