What’s the question? It doesn’t matter – Michael Vick is the answer.

I have to admit – I thought Mikey would choke today. I really did.

Michael Vick has a thing about him that if he gets too comfortable, he gets careless. When he was with the Falcons, there were plenty of times of when he would play down to his competition (he lost to the Lions twice, just to cite two examples) just to remind everyone that he wasn’t above taking games off. And after he was named the starting quarterback earlier this week over Kevin Kolb, I thought for sure this would be the game he would disappoint.

But I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Vick once again dazzled for the Eagles, who crushed the Jaguars 28-3 in Jacksonville on Sunday. He threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions and also rushed four times for 30 yards and a score. It’s remarkable that he hasn’t thrown an interception yet and if he continues his hot play, there’s no reason that Philadelphia can’t challenge for one of the top spots in the NFC this year.

Of course, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s just observe the fact that 1) Andy Reid made the right decision earlier this week to keep Kolb benched and 2) Vick didn’t blow another opportunity to impress as a starter. Vick says he’s changed (i.e. he’s become more mature and isn’t taking his time in the NFL for granted) and so far, I believe him. The guy is playing at a Pro Bowl level.
