Defenses must learn Vick Rules


The reinstatement of Eagles QB Michael Vick was the story of the day on Thursday. The key to Vick fitting in the system of the Philadelphia Eagles is how well he can run the offense as a backup QB. That’s what we have to see with Vick.

Eagles head coach Andy Reid also needs to find out tonight exactly how he wants to utilize Vick. I discussed the ruling and how the Eagles will incorporate Vick into the offense with Rich Eisen and Rod Woodson today on Total Access.

I also did a Playbook segment today on ‘Vick Rules’, and what happens when teams lose defensive containment of the pocket against Vick. There are rules for regular quarterbacks, and then there are ‘Vick Rules’. You can see what I’m talking about in the video above.
