For one, his WRs are now catching the football. Guess that helps. Other than that..... I dunno what's really different either. He's been a bit more accurate lately though.

For all of those jumping on the Vick bandwagon after these games I have two words for you:

Kordell Stewart.

He made the Pro Bowl a couple years back with a season that "silenced the critics" and what did he do from there?

Vick needs to do this more often, more consistently, and for an extended period of time before I will believe the past 5 years are the aberration and this new proficiency is the truth.

Yea, I agree. 2 games of good play means that it's possible he could have turned the corner, but you cannot base a conclusion off of just 2 games. I do think we need to see this "new Vick" perform consistently a little more before we say he's the real deal. Just far too much history of inconsistent, poor play to prove he's changed after just 2 games.

NFL defenses will adjust... I still would rather have a bunch of other QBs instead of Vick.

I wouldn't trust him for a second in my FF playoffs.

i agree with the last 2 posters...he needs to do this more consistently than 2 games in a row to make me a believer.

I don't think so. He's finally showing a hint of consistency. I'd buy low from guys like you who still wanna sell him high.

I have yet to see him play this year but he has beaten Pitt and now Cincy on the road.THat to me shows he has matured and maybe has learned the westcoast offense.
