M. Vick helped lead Philadelphia to a near come-from-behind win (AP). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Did we just see the reemergence of quarterback Michael Vick in the Eagles 27-20 loss to the Packers? I think it’s quite possible. Let me rephrase: based on his performance in Week 1, yes, it seems like we absolutely saw the Michael Vick of old.

His stats line obviously is impressive: he completed 16 of 24 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown while rushing 11 times for 103 yards. He was a stark contrast to what the Eagles had in starting QB Kevin Kolb – who, before he suffered his concussion, looked terrible in the first half.

Kolb couldn’t get into a rhythm with his receivers (partially, in part, because coach Andy Reid kept inserting Vick into the game), and he had a tough time reading Green Bay’s defense.

But when Vick emerged, everything changed. He used his athleticism to escape the Packers pressure, and a team that only managed three points in the first 30 minutes of football, suddenly ran a high-powered offense.

Will it last? Who knows. But no matter what you personally think about Vick as a person, for one week, it was fun to watch Vick play like he used to play.

I can only assume....since I have continually heard what he was caught doing and convicted of doing has something to do with (and I quote) "a culture" - whatever the heck that means. I don't beleive prison/jail time changes "a culture"....as prison/jail focus on "rehabilitation" is a long gone theory...

And I agree with your point on Ben...

I am only assuming- since everyone uses (and I quote) "a culture" as an excuse for the crimes he was "caught and convicted" for. I assume spending time in jail doesn't change someone's "culture".???? Prison/Jail "rehabilitation" is long gone...

What Vick was involved in was what it was and he paid for it. Exactly what is he involved in now? Please expand on it, because there is nothing the media is reporting that he has done. I am just asking. I am a Vick fan and cetainly do not believe his sentence was just, although he [eventually] pleaded guilty and the details are true.

On the other had, another QB [apparently] rapes two women and gets a reduced suspension. OK, Ben has not been convicted, but many, and I mean many wanted Vick out of the league prior to him pleading guilty; based on accuations. So the same should apply for Ben from the 'many'.

Didn't mean to go on, but only wanted to know what 'VIck' is 'involved in' now...

I got this love-hate thing going on with MV.
LOVE to watch him play- HATE that he is a criminal.
I know I know- he did his time- whatever! Just thinking of the things he was/still is involved in makes me wanna puke. I wish he WAS NOT allowed back in the NFL so I would not feel this conflict!

I'm not a very big fan of Vick as a person.  But on the football field?  I missed "video game" Vick.  Fun to watch and wouldnt' mind getting to see more of him even though i'm not an eagles fan.
