“We had a play called. I wasn’t surprised the clock was moving, but I was surprised it was moving as quick as when it was started with the spot,” Reid said.
A three-time Pro Bowl pick during six seasons in Atlanta, Vick got a second chance to revive his career in Philadelphia after spending 18 months in federal prison for his role in a dogfighting operation. He played sparingly last year behind McNabb and Kolb, seeing most of his action in a variation of the wildcat formation.
Vick made the most of his opportunity after Kolb went down, and was the NFC offensive player of the month in September. He had 750 yards passing, six touchdowns and no interceptions, and also ran for 170 yards and one score in 10 quarters.
The last time McNabb and Vick played against each other at Lincoln Financial Field was the 2005 NFC title game. McNabb led the Eagles to a 27-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons after losing the three previous conference championship games.
