Jaws: There's Quality Play Left In Vick

Posted Dec 21, 2012

Count former Eagles quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski as a fan of Michael Vick.

In an interview Friday on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning, Jaworski said that "absolutely" Vick could still be a good starting quarterback.

"You can't take away the interceptions, the fumbles, the turnovers. But if you look at his improvement from last year to this year; you look at the improvement from 2010 to 2011 to 2012, I saw significant improvement in Michael Vick's game," Jaworski said. "I still believe there's quality play left in Michael Vick."

There is a lot of speculation about Vick's future in Philadelphia. This year, Vick has completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 2,165 yards with 11 touchdowns against nine interceptions for a 79.2 passer rating. He has also lost five fumbles this season.

After suffering a concussion in the Week 10 game against Dallas, Vick has been relegated to a third-string quarterback behind Nick Foles and Trent Edwards. This Sunday, Vick is finally healthy enough to make his return, but it remains to be seen whether he will even be active for the contest.

"He still has incredible value to the Philadelphia Eagles," Jaworski added.
