With Donovan Mcnabb back yesterday after missing two games with a broken rib, it was Wildcat-lite for the Eagles' offense. Michael Vick was on the field for only nine Wildcat plays, netting 29 yards - and many of them featured Vick as a decoy wide receiver.
Only later did we see the latest bit of Vick's development: He was allowed to play a fourth-quarter series in the Eagles' 33-14 win over Tampa Bay as a regular, old quarterback.
In that series, he completed his first (and only) pass of the season, a 1-yard nothing of a play to Desean Jackson. But he also had one let-Mike-be-Mike play that was reminiscent of what was, an 11-yard scramble that ended up with Vick getting kneed in the ribs. He missed the next play while he collected his breath, with Kevin Kolb taking that snap. Vick said X-rays on the rib after the game were negative.
