Eagles' Version Of Wildcat With Vick Needs Work

By  | 

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Michael Vick experiment lasted six plays before Donovan McNabb walked over to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg on the sideline and yelled "Cut!"

Like a movie director who's seen enough, McNabb wanted the offense to do another take. This time, without Vick.

In his debut with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Vick did a little of everything. Playing his first NFL game since his release from prison, Vick lined up at quarterback, wide receiver and ran the wildcat formation in his first action in 32 months.

But in the possessions in which Vick played, the Eagles scored 3 points.

Vick says it'll get better.

"Right now I am just going off my natural ability," he says. "Once I get myself into top shape, the sky is the limit."
