Just who exactly signed a 5 year, $78 million contract with $40 million guaranteed?
Michael Vick wasn’t good last night. He was historic.
Moments after announcing that the Washington Redskins signed QB Donovan McNabb to a 5 year contract, Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles destroyed the Redskins in Washington last night.
The 30-year-old Vick, set to be a free agent after this season, led Philadelphia to a 59-28 rout in front of 84,912 at FedEx Field.
Vick put together a 14-of-18, 264-yard, three-touchdown passing, 66 yard with 2 rushing touchdown performance in just the first half. He finished the game connecting on 20 of 28 passes for 333 yards and four scores, along with eight carries for 80 yards and the two touchdowns.
First play of the game: Hooking up with third-year wide receiver DeSean Jackson for an 88-yard touchdown. From there, the left-hander never looked back.
Was it the biggest passing play of his career?
“In a professional football game, maybe so, I don’t know how long it was but I have to go back and look at the film,” Vick said. “This was a great job of the offensive line holding up front. They did a great job all day. Great job by DeSean going to get the ball.”
Vick’s dominance wasn’t limited to the Redskins’ defense. He put his name in the record books last night.
