In theory, Vince Young’s memorable drive against the Giants will make it easier for the Eagles to play it safe with Michael Vick’s status next Sunday.
In reality, the Eagles desperately want to start a winning streak to give this season some life. If Vick can possibly play, he’s going to play.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote early Monday morning that the Eagles are optimistic Vick could be back to face New England despite his broken ribs.
Young showed something against the Giants Sunday night, but Vick easily has the better skill set to take advantage of New England’s soft secondary.
