Vick Honored Again; Jersey Headed For Hall

For the second straight week, Michael Vick has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his performance on Monday night against the Redskins. Vick is the first quarterback to win the award in consecutive weeks since former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham did it as a Viking in 1998.

Vick was 20 of 28 for 333 yards (71.4 completion percentage) with four touchdowns against no interceptions. Vick's passer rating was a career-high 150.7 (158.3 is perfect). Vick also rushed for 80 yards and scored another two touchdowns on the ground.

It was a historic performance for Vick as he became the first player in NFL history to pass for 300 yards, rush for 50 yards, throw four touchdown passes and rush for two touchdowns all in the same game. The Eagles announced on Tuesday that the Pro Football Hall of Fame has asked for Vick's game jersey and it will be displayed in Canton, Ohio. Vick also became the first player ever to have three passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in the first half of a game.

During the 59-38 pasting of the Redskins, Vick also passed Steve Young for No. 2 on the NFL's list of all-time rushing quarterbacks. With 4,295 career rushing yards, Vick only trails - fittingly enough - Cunningham who has 4,928.

For the year, Vick has completed 62.7 percent of his passes for 1,350 yards with 11 touchdowns against 0 interceptions. He has also rushed for 341 yards and four touchdowns. Vick has compiled a league-best 115.1 passer rating and he has not turned the ball over once this season.

And the most important stat of all is that Vick is 4-0 in games that he started and finished at quarterback.

Vick is also up for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award, but in order for him to win you have to give him your vote.
