All-22: Examining Michael Vick’s Issues

vickpost1c_092313When Chip Kelly was asked to evaluate Michael Vick’s performance against the Kansas City Chiefs, the word he used was okay.

Okay is generally coach-speak for: He didn’t play well, but it’s unfair to place all the blame on one guy.

But one week after throwing for 423 yards and completing nearly 64 percent of his passes against the Chargers, Vick was just 13-for-30 with three turnovers against the Chiefs.

What were some of his issues? Let’s take a look, starting with his first-quarter interception.
