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.
