Let me get my answer out of the way 1st.
Do I think Mike Vick should be benched?
What I THINK should happen is that he should be coached. He’s not Chad Pennington-post surgeries….This is a top 10 talent who can throw the ball on a rope and scramble outside of the pocket for positive yards on ANY GIVEN SUNDAY (no Lawrence Taylor chainsawing a Hummer……)
But there’s no way he should be turning the ball over via the fumble this much OR putting himself into harm’s way the way he does when it comes to scrambling.
Whether it be Andy Reid, Marty Mornhinweg, David Culley, Matt Nagy, or Doug Pederson, somebody on that coaching staff has to get it into his head that he has to tuck the ball better, SLIDE when running out in the open field, and THROW the ball out of bounds when he doesn’t have anything…
He’s got the talent but I just feel like he’s not getting the coaching here. I don’t want him to be one of those guys they talk about in an NFL special where they mention how GOOD he was early on but he never made it to “that” level…..He can get there.
Let’s hope, as fans of football, that he gets it….
