    Michael Vick Makes NFL Return in Eagles 33-32 Win Over Jaguars

    It wasn’t all pretty, but at least Michael Vick showed that he probably still has what it takes to play professional football in the NFL.  Vick got his 1st taste of live NFL action when he appeared in the Eagles 3rd pre-season game on Thursday night against the Jaguars.  The Eagles used Vick as a quarterback and wide receiver in a few different sets.  Vick completed all 4 of his passes for 19 yards and he also had 1 rush for 1 yard.  Nothing great, but nothing bad.

    Although it initially appeared that Eagles Quarterback Donovan McNabb was upset that Vick saw quarterback action so early in the game, the 2 could be seen joking on the sidelines in the 2nd half.  McNabb completed 21 of 36 passes for 244 yards, with 1 touchdown and 1 interception – good for a 76.6 passer rating.  Can’t complain too much with a night like that.

    Vick will be able to play in the Eagles final pre-season contest next week against the Jets in New Jersey.  After that, his return in an NFL regular season game will be at the discretion of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.  It will be interesting to see how much game action Vick sees when it counts during the regular season.  We predict a heavy dose of D-Mac with limited action from Vick early on…
