Michael Vick Was Honest: “I think it’s decision-making, pressing”BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Thursday, September 13th, 2012
Michael Vick was honest yesterday when we asked him what happened on Sunday against Cleveland.
“There’s nothing you can change about it, it’s plenty of throws I wish I could have back”, Vick said.
“I think it’s decision-making, pressing, and not pressing as hard to try and make things happen when things aren’t going your way,” Vick said.
“I think I should go out and play my game within the system, and use my God given abilities whenever the time calls for it,” Vick said. “Just play and get back to having fun playing the game of football.”
He panicked last Sunday and abandoned all of his fundamentals. He was guessing and hoping something good was going to happen. Vick was putting too much pressure on himself and trying to do too much. If there’s nobody open, then there’s nobody open. If he’s being pressured and there’s nobody open, then that’s what happened. He’s got to be patient and believe that the offensive line is going to block and the receivers are going to get open.
If he drops back and has pressure in his face, he should consider abandoning the play. If he can use his speed to escape then he can take that option, but not if that’s going to require him taking a big chance with the football, then he shouldn’t do it. Abandon the play.
He’s got to play with the confidence that they’ll be enough times when he drops back, has time to throw and somebody is open. If he tries to press and make something out of nothing, then he’s going to be turning the ball over.
Vick didn’t say anything about staring down receivers. You’ve got to look one way and throw the other against zones. If you stare down a receiver, you’re bringing everybody to that area.
