Michael Vick's Concussion

Recommended Posts

http://blogs.nfl.com/2011/09/18/eagles-vick-suffers-concussion-in-loss-to-falcons/?module=HP11_breaking_news

First, I should start by saying this is why you don't take Michael Vick in fantasy leagues (yea I know, Foster, I'm sick). Michael Vick doesn't know how to take care of his body - we saw this happen when he flung himself at Polamalu in a meaningless preseason game. In this concussion, it wasn't necessarily Vick's fault, but something like this was bound to happen. I think Vick was concentrating too long down-field after the pass, and he simply wasn't paying attention to his landing.

Second, Vince Young is also out (all season?) with a hamstring injury, so now they're down to Mike Kafka. I'm a huge Kafka fan, and I believe he will have a strong showing, assuming Vick is out more than one game. As Austin Collie fans know, concussions are serious injuries, so I'll be shocked if Vick plays next week, but we'll see. Even if he can, it may be in the Eagles best interest to sit him one game - he's too expensive to risk.

Here's the kicker... Let's presume Vick is out an extended period of time, and Kafka comes in and performs phenomenally. All of a sudden, we might have another Vick vs. Kolb starter situation. Kafka will probably end up as the trade bait, but not if Vick keeps getting himself injured.

Anyways, it looks like some Atlanta fans were ecstatic to see Vick leave the field :(. There's some bad voodoo going down.

My buddy got Vick and Rodgers...he's been ripping our league apart for the first 2 weeks. I got Manning and Rivers, so now I'm playing musical chairs with that second QB spot after Rivers.

The Vick injury was just unlucky. If he had scrambled and gotten injured, you could say it was his fault. But all game, he stood in the pocket (behind a porous O-line) and made throws. He got hit in the pocket, not when scrambling. He was just unlucky.

I have Vick too, but I got Josh Freeman because I knew this would happen.

Not as brutal as my other fantasy team. I have Peyton Manning and Jamaal Charles on that one. :(

And yes, Kafka looked good last night. Why can't the Colts ever have a serviceable backup QB? They're 3rd stringer is better than our starter. :facepalm:

The guy in my league that has Vick took it on his chin last weekend. Vick suffered a concussion and JC tore his ACL.

Vick is your ultimate boom or bust type player. If the guy can stay relatively healthy he will win you your league, but he gets so banged up that it forces you to take a back up QB a bit to early. Though this year if you got someone like Fitzpatrick or Grossman real late you should be fine.

I tell you what tickes me off the most is I cannot put Manning on the IR on NFL.com, but yet you can put a player who is suspended on the IR spot. So now because it is a keeper league I am wasting a spot for Manning. Why couldn't the report about Manning's neck wait a few more days so my trade could have gone through.

It would not surprise me at all if behind closed doors there was a bounty on Vick given the bad blood there by the city and the owner (yeah he might say he loves Vick and all the right things but you just know he was FUMING over the garbage time scores 2 years ago)

Not sure I follow you on this. Who was fuming over which garbage scores?

Arthur Blank didn't appreciate Michael Vick being inserted in mop-up duty and throwing for a score

Oh ok, I wasnt thinking of Blank. I thought you meant bad blood from Lurie. That's what confused me. Oddly enough, the Falcons fans loved it though. He got a lot of ovations during that 09 game.

    • I should  clarify what I said to lead off this thread.  When I said I was wrong I didn’t mean about Jacoby being the starter I meant being wrong about the lack of deep shots last week.   Overall Jacoby held his own against a really good secondary but the Colts let the Titans do exactly what the announcers said they would do if the Colts didn’t stretch field.  They sat on the receivers and took away the intermittent stuff and started stacking the box and that’s when Jacoby started to look really indecisive and was holding the ball too long.  He had about 40 yards passing in the second half.  That’s not going to win a lot of games.     Overall Jacoby has been about what I expected him to be, good enough to keep the Colts in games and give them a chance to win.  Still to take the next step he has to be able to go down the field.   it wasn’t all on the receivers either, the announcers showed a play where if he gave TY another second or two he was coming open on the crossing pattern but Jacoby dumped it off before then.
    • Still better then being a Titans or Texans fan. I'm not even going to mention being a Jags fan, that's just dumb.
    • There are HIGH SCHOOL kickers who dont miss extra points   The guy has been a legend   But....   He is ruining his legacy by trying to play even one more game.........  He is DONE
    • That was a playoff caliber win.  The team had to grind and grind hard to get just enough opportunities to lock this one up and it came down to Reich successfully implementing a good clock strategy to run the Titans out of time to come back.   Brissett... needs a little work, but he was good enough to win against a team that's probably going to be playing in January.  This makes me feel a lot more confident that the Colts will be in the playoff mix and can win when they get there.   I mean thinking in Superbowl terms I don't think anyone's getting through the Pats this year but if anyone does, it will be a team with a strong defense and a complete squad with no major weaknesses, and I think that describes us pretty well.  Anyway, we have as good a chance as anyone right now to be the team they meet in the AFCCG.   Very much encouraged by their ability to win this game.  This is a game they could have easily laid down and died after giving up their lead in the second half... looked like they were poised to do just that, then Reich and Brissett engineer a drive in the 4th quarter and then burn a lot of clock to help the defense hold that lead.  That was a signature win IMHO.  One that is going to help turn these players into a proper team, one for the franchise to grow on.
    • So you're fine with his atrocious kicking.    Gotcha.
