Pro Football Hall Of Fame Requests Michael Vick's Jersey From Last Night

Yesterday, Michael Vick put on what pretty much everyone deemed a historic performance. Not only did he and the Eagles offense break records, a number of pundits actually opined that Vick may have just played the single greatest game an NFL quarterback as ever played. As crazy as that sounds, the numbers do bear it out.

After the game, hall of famer Steve Young said that Vick’s performance was “One of the most defining games at quarterback I’ve ever seen.”

Apparently, the Pro Football Hall Of Fame agrees. Reuben Frank is reporting that they’ve requested the jersey Michael Vick wore in the historic win. It’s pretty crazy to think that 18 months ago this guy was in prison, with his football career effectively over… and now he’s going to have his jersey hanging in the Hall of Fame. If Vick continues to play anywhere near the way he did last night, there’s a decent chance he’ll get a bust of himself in there as well.. That said, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. He’s got to beat the Giants now.

Did Michael Vick Just Have The Greatest QB Performance Of All Time?

Michael Vick might have just played the greatest single game in pro football history. It sounds nuts, but consider this... He became the first player in the NFL history to record the following stats in a single game:

300+ passing yards
50+ rushing yards
4+ passing TDs
2+ rushing TDs

He had more fantasy points tonight than any player since the AFL/NFL merger. By the way, he reached that plateau by the midway point of the third quarter. His final line was 20/28 for 333 yards and 4 TDs. He rushed for 80 yards and another 2 TDs

After the game, hall of famer Steve Young said that Vick's performance was "One of the most defining games at quarterback I've ever seen."

Fox Sports analyst Adam Caplan called it the greatest QB performance he's ever seen.

Vick's performance so far tonight I think is the best I've ever seen any level from a QB. Anyone see any better ones?less than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Eagles At Redskins: In Progress: Dimitri Patterson's Pick 6 Puts Eagles Up 59-21 Over Redskins

Dimitri Patterson likely cemented his place as a starter for the remainder of the season with his performance tonight. Patterson, in just his second start in place of the injured Ellis Hobbs, has picked off Donovan McNabb twice, the second of which was a pick 6 that put the Eagles up 59-21.

The Eagles previous TD had come on Michael Vick’s 4th TD pass of the night. He’s now accounted for 6 total TDs.

Eagles All Over Redskins 45-14 At The Half

It’s been an historic first half in the nation’s capital. The Eagles have set a franchise records for points in a quarter and a half. When they concluded the first quarter up 28-0, it was the largest lead a road team had ever had after the first quarter in NFL history. Michael Vick also passed Steve Young for 2nd on all the time rushing list for quarterbacks.

Let’s just look at a few stats. The Eagles have 425 yards of offense. Michael Vick himself has accounted for five touchdowns. His QB rating for the first half is a perfect 158.3. The only TD that wasn’t his doing was a spectacular 50 yard run from Jerome Harrison.

The Redskins did make an attempt to make it a game scoring two straight TDs after the Eagles went up 35-0, but the Eagles responded with 13 unanswered points to close out the half. Donovan McNabb has thrown two touchdowns, but also has two picks both to Dimitri Patterson who is starting his second game.

It’s a monday night massacre and at this point the only question seems to be how bad is it going to get?

Why Not? Michael Vick 48 Yards to Jeremy Maclin

This has become laughable. As in, when Jeremy Maclin caught that ball, I got up and started laughing like a hyena. While Michael Vick has completed nine of nine passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns (and passed Steve Young for 2nd all time in rushing yards for a quarterback), Donovan McNabb and the Redskins have yet to get a first down.

Shocking. Five touchdowns. 35-0 Eagles. Records are being broken left, right, and center.

Jerome Harrison Runs Eagles 4th Touchdown in from 50 Yards Out

WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWWOWOWOWOWOWOW.

Jerome Harrison: Welcome to the Eagles. After another Redskins three-and-out, the Browns castoff took a Michael Vick handoff and used a ton of cutbacks and terrific blocks to get all the way to the endzone. Rather than dwell on how great the offense looks, let’s just examine the stats.

Vick: 8-8, 181, 2 touchdowns, 20 rushing yards
LeSean McCoy: 55 yards, touchdown
Desean Jackson: 93 yards, touchdown

270 yards on 15 plays. Monday Night Football records getting shattered. This is a whooping.

28-0. Still in quarter number one.

Another Michael Vick TD Drive, LeSean McCoy Takes it In

Wowwowowowowow.

I’ve never seen an Eagles offense look this good. Michael Vick is the left arm of God right now and Andy Reid must be pissing himself with glee. Desean Jackson added a few yards, Jason Avant had his reception, and McCoy finally punched it in from 11 yards out on a short catch from Vick. That’s three touchdowns in less than ten minutes. What team are we watching?

21-0 Eagles. Here comes the boom.

Perfect Drive Leads to Mike Vick Rushing Touchdown

Um. Wow again?

The Eagles defense forced Donovan McNabb and his shiny new contract into a three-and-out on their first possession, handing the ball back to the offense at the Philly 37. Michael Vick hit slot man Jason Avant for 15, then Jeremy Maclin took an end-around for an 11-yard first down. LeSean McCoy ran for a couple, and they went back to him for a 27-yard textbook screen pass that got them all the way to the Redskins 7 yard line. The Eagles have had difficulties in the red zone (forever) but not this time around as Vick avoided pressure and dove in the last two yards to get the touchdown and put the Eagles up 14-0 less than 5 minutes into the game.

Touchdowns, not field goals, are the difference between this early lead and last week’s early dominance on the Colts. Let’s stretch this baby out. Holy crap we look good.

Michael Vick Hits Desean Jackson for 88-yard Touchdown

Wow. After Jorrick Calvin muffed the opening kickoff, the Eagles were backed up to their own 12-yard line. No problem. Michael Vick had tons of time on a play action and flashed his monster arm, airing it out well over 50 yards to Desean Jackson. DJ had a step on Laron Landry, made the catch in rhythm, and stumbled to an easy touchdown the next 30 yards.

Michael Vick’s arm is unparalleled right now. This was Desean’s longest reception in a short career filled with long gainers. 7-0 Eagles early. Statement made.

Eagles At Redskins: Eagles Announce Inactives

The Eagles have announced their inactives for tonight. Nate Allen, Ellis Hobbs, & King Dunlap are all out due to injury. Reggie Wells, Garrett Mills, Chad Hall & Daniel Te’o-Nesheim will also sit.

That means rookie TE Clay Harbor will dress for only the second time this year and newly signed safety Colt Anderson will be in the lineup

Redskins Sign Donovan McNabb To 5-Year, $78 Million Contract

ESPN’s Michael Smith is reporting that the Redskins and Donovan McNabb have agreed to a new five-year, $78 million extension which includes $40 million in guaranteed money. The deal comes just two weeks after Redskins coach Mike Shanahan benched the QB in the final two minutes of the team's loss to Detroit.

The new extension immediately becomes the story of tonight’s matchup with the Eagles on Monday Night Football. So far this season McNabb has thrown for seven TDs and eight INTs with a QB rating of 76, the lowest since his rookie year. So clearly this extension can’t been seen as a reward for what he’s done so far… The Redskins are betting that McNabb’s play will improve and that he’ll be able to play at a high level through his mid-to-late 30s. McNabb will turn 34 in 10 days and would be pushing 40 if he were to play out this entire contract. It will be interesting to see the details of how the contract is structured.
