PHILADELPHIA By the end of Donovan McNabb's long run as quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, the team felt it needed a more aggressive offensive field general, one not as afraid of making a mistake as McNabb, who owns one of the NFL's lowest all-time interception rates.
Problem is, Vick has slowly become the anti-McNabb, with an all-too-cavalier attitude toward turnovers as being inevitable and often unavoidable.
We saw it last season, when Vick in the closing minute of a tight playoff game against Green Bay tossed a hurried, ill-advised and underthrown pass down the left sideline toward a well-covered rookie receiver who had just nine career receptions at the time.
Tramon Williams intercepted it for the Packers without any resistance from Riley Cooper, enabling them to preserve their five-point lead on their way to a Super Bowl championship.
The first-down throw was an unnecessary risk that Vick, despite all his experience, either did not recognize or was temporarily blinded to by an adrenaline overload.
Either way, there was a lesson that needed to be learned there.
Alas, it wasn't.
The Eagles, with Vick continuing this season to toss the ball opponents' way like it's a live grenade, haven't sniffed the playoffs since.
Vick is too reckless, too unrealistic about the limitations of his prodigious talent. Unless head coach Andy Reid, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and quarterbacks coach Doug Pederson can get him to dial it down, they can forget ever being as successful as they were with McNabb, whose 92-49-1 regular-season record and 9-7 postseason record was not good enough to keep him in town.
Vick, by the way, is 15-9 in regular-season games as an Eagles starter and 0-1 in the playoffs. This is with better, more experienced offensive talent all around him than McNabb ever had.
In Sunday's game, for example, the interception he underthrew into double coverage and the strip sack in which he lost the ball deep in Eagles' territory were both on him. Vick had plenty of time to throw the ball away on both plays.
Getting him to recognize the effect he's had on this team's non-playoff run would be a start, because after Sunday's win, Vick sounded as if he had no clue.
"I think a majority of my interceptions came from tipped balls. I don't think our season was decided based on the interceptions that I threw. But there is no mistaking the underlying message that he simply does not understand the importance of avoiding turnovers and the magnitude of his many errors in judgment.
Every time Vick tries to play Superman and forces the football into closed spaces or exposes himself to injury by refusing to slide, he moves the Eagles further away from the playoffs. This is true especially on the days when he makes most of those plays work for him, because it creates more of a comfort zone for him to stray further across that line to a place where ultimate victory is impossible.
But make no mistake: if Vick doesn't play at least a little more conservatively, the Eagles likely will never make it back to the playoffs, much less advance in them.
To facilitate this, maybe the Eagles need to bring in a free-agent backup who knows how to do it the other way. Someone like, say, Donovan McNabb.
Wow, you're a lazy liar too I see. A huge copy and paste to try to cover your lying ass this time. Damn, just say you lied and move on already. It ain't going away ya know.

By the way, no one gives a flying shit about this fat bastards opinion of the Eagles any more than they care about yours. If they did, he wouldn't be writing for a shithole town's newspaper. Anyone who thinks McNabb is the answer is a MORON. No wonder you jumped on this story.
Oh, and in case you didn't catch it the first time, this isn't from a Philly newspaper. It appears to be an Allentown/Lehigh Valley fish wrapper. Really credible and revered source there. Hell, you're close to making as many comments on this one story as people have made in the last 3 months to every story on his blog combined. SO LAME ! You and Nick.
Nick Fierro should stick with what he knows best. Stuffing his fat face with bear claws, and increasing the depth of the assprint on his office chair.
