Michael Vick Displays Scrambling, Athleticism, Ill-Advised Jump Passes

The ability to escape a pass rush is a beautiful thing. It extends a play, demoralizes a defensive line, and adds an almost super-human air to one's game that leaves the jaws of fans firmly on the floor. We've seen Michael Vick dance in the backfield to find a small opening and make a huge play, but I'm not so sure we've ever seen a Turkey-Bowl-jump-pass-interception.

It's a thing of beauty– horrible, soul-crushing beauty.


With three defenders swarming, and no receiver ready for the ball it's hard to see what Vick did. All I know is that I'm drawing up this play when Brett Favre and his Wrangler jeans want to ball with me and my friends.
