Michael Vick is a special player. He has skills that very few other players possess, which makes him hard to defend. He’s even harder to prepare for in practice because so few players can replicate what he does.
With the Cowboys preparing to face the Eagles Sunday, Dallas looked to wide receiver Dez Bryant to perform his best Michael Vick impression.
“He gave us a good look,” outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware said of Dez’s impersonation. “He was fast. I was in front of him, and I made the tackle.”
“He can throw the ball 60 yards, and it looks like it’s on a frozen rope like Vick’s is too, with that lefty spin,” Cowboys inside linebacker Sean Lee said. “…[Bryant's imitation] was dead on. The way he runs. The way he moves. Their play-making ability.”
Dez is left handed, which helps simulate the Vick look. He’s also super fast, and from what the players say, he can throw the ball well.
It’s a good thing he didn’t get hurt doing his Vick impression given how frequently he gets injured. I’m sure Dallas will be better prepared now after facing Dez, but I still like Philly to win this game. Can’t go against the Eagles coming off a bye week — they’re 12-0 after byes under Andy Reid.Google+
