Eagles QB Michael Vick Takes Back Pre-Snap Duties
Entering the year, Michael Vick and Jason Kelce planned to share responsibilities pre-snap so Vick could focus on the other tasks at hand. While Vick had final say, it was the center that was calling out the bulk of the protections. Even when Kelce went down and the unproven Dallas Reynolds stepped in, the set-up stayed in place.
The intended results never came as Vick felt somewhat disengaged so he went to the coaching staff and told him he wanted to make the switch. Against the Saints on Monday night, the responsibilities were all his for the first time this season.
“I did it because I think when a quarterback is able to make the calls, it’s actually easier for you to know when you’re hot and when you’re not, who’s the most dangerous guy,” said Vick. “And I think it allows the center to just hear the calls and focus on the guys in front of him. When the center has to make calls, it’s a lot for him.”
