LeBron James said should be President on Twitter, had a historic game.
"Mike Vick" became the first player in NFL History to have 300 yards passing, over 50 yards rushing (he had 80) and six touchdowns, four passing and two rushing, in one game. NFL.com said that's one of the greatest performances in Monday Night Football history, but if that's the case, who was better?
Vick Fueled By Redskins Insults
According to NFL.com, Vick and the Eagles were fueled by the taunting Washington Redskins. According to Philadelphia Center Mike McGlynn as told to the NFL, "Basically a guy tried to come over and intimidate us. It was (No.) 30 again. He said some things to our star player he shouldn't have said, and he got his. You can see on that first play. He got his."
What Eagles Cornerback LaRon Landry reportedly said referred to Vick's time in jail for dog fighting, but that's not only getting old fast, it's starting to look like an affront to God himself. Landry was torched by Vick and DeSean Jackson for an 88 yard touchdown on the first play of the game. That set the tone for what was to be a rout.
Vick's rise is a lot like that of Sarah Palin's, who seems angry for being disrespected in politics by the GOP. But that's for another blog post; this is Vick's time to shine.
Overall, Michael Vick has won every game he's played in and finished this year. His overall quarterback rating is 115, under 11 touchdowns, 1,350 yards, and no interceptions. In fact, Vick has not turned the ball over this year.
Michael Vick For NFL MVP? It could happen. But first, Vick and the Eagles have the New York Giants to deal with and they're not happy about losing to the Dallas Cowboys.
