Somehow, Michael Vick led the Philadelphia Eagles to a victory despite his four interceptions.
The Eagles compiled 456 yards of offense, but the 17-16 score to win at the Cleveland Browns didnt reflect their potential.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh doesnt expect him to play badly again, particularly in the Eagles home debut for a team that has Super Bowl championship aspirations.
Their offense, its just as explosive as any in the league, Harbaugh said. They have a quarterback that is renowned for his play-making ability.
Vick put the blame for his performance last week on his shoulders, admitting that he pressed the issue against his better judgment. His four interceptions led to all of Cleveland's points.
I was just trying to force too many throws. I tried to make something happen when I felt as if we should have already had more points on the board, he said of throwing 29-for-56 for 317 yards. I just got impatient and just tried to rush things. I started letting balls go that I should never have thrown.
So will the Ravens use a spy to track Vick? If he breaks containment, that spells disaster for a defense. The Browns were aggressive with their front seven and did a lot of blitzing from the edges. Vick rushed for only 32 yards on seven carries.
Teams pretty much do what they do. They dont change anything. They might put a spy in the middle, rob the coverage every now and then, Vick said. If they dont play man (coverage), and its not one of the things that they do, they wont try to do that. For the most part, teams just line up and play. Thats the way I like it. Thats the way I want it. If they do put a robber in there, it takes somebody out of pass coverage so we have to exploit that.
Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis isn't a fan of using a "spy."
"You start to kind of compromise it a little bit," Lewis said. "So I just say ... play your defense the way your defense should be playing, it should take care of itself. Anytime that you try to do something extra, for one player, no matter who it is, I believe it kind of messes up your scheme of things."
