Mike Vick Won’t Change the Way He Plays

I called out Philadelphia Eagles QB for his lack of pocket awareness after he suffered a brutal hit this past Monday night during a matchup versus the New England Patriots.  It’s the type of play Vick has become known for – scrambling for dear life as he attempts to make a play downfield, only to be crushed by a pursuing defensive lineman.  That playing style has endeared him to fans across the nation.  It has also, arguably, shortened the span of his career.  Does Vick see any reason to change his game?From USAToday:

“I just let everything happen in that moment. I can’t go to the line dictating what I’m going to do,” he says. “I can’t go to the line trying to predict everything that I’m going to do. That would hurt you’re game a little bit, because I might miss somebody getting open. I have to go through my progressions to the best of my abilities.”

In other words, don’t expect to see any alterations to Vick’s approach to playing the quarterback position.  His abilities truly are a gift and a curse.  His highlight reel plays thrill many while the bone jarring hits he suffers place a significant cap on what you may get out of him during the season.  Nevertheless, I still say fantasy players should not hesitate to make Vick a part of their rosters.  He’s a game changer who’s capable of tilting a matchup week in and week out.
