Remember when: Michael Vick at the Heights

I let others weigh in on Michael Vick's current firestorm. This is just a reminder that he put together the best game I've ever seen by a visiting QB at Alumni.

Having trouble with the link, but I'm guessing without seeing it that it's Lenny Walls (or was it Parent?) doing a couple 360's trying to catch Ron Mexico heading into the endzone in 2000. One of the most amazing plays I've seen.

However, I'm not so sure about the "best game ever" comment. Maybe the best game ever as a rusher, but certainly not as a passer. Vick was 5-for-17 passing for 61 yards and a pick in that game (he had 200+ yards on the ground).

It is the Walls clip. Fair enough on the best day. Even though he didn't light it up passing, I've never seen anything like that at Alumni.

Poor Lenny Walls. It's funny, when Ted Ginn got hurt by a teammate in the CG this year, I remembered hoping Vick had gotten hurt when the guy tackled him in the end zone. I rarely wish injury on opposing players--Vick that day, because he destroyed us so badly; and the guy from UVA who tried to end Kiwi's career.

I was there that day and was absolutely amazed. Best athletic performance I ever saw at Alumni. The best visting passer I saw there, however, had to be Donovan McNabb. Post those highlights. Didn't Syracuse put up 42 points?

That's funny that Mike Vick had such a good game against BC....

I was at BC from '03-'07, and one of the better QB performances that I saw was Marcus Vick... I think it was 2005, in Blacksburg. He was okay running, but I think I remember him having one of the best passing days of his shortened college career.

I looked up the stats...

Marcus Vick 22/28 280 10.0 1TD 0INT

And 13 carries for 52 yards.

The killer part about the last run was how much of a back breaker it was. The game was tight and BC had VT pinned down and he pulle doff that run. He will need that kind of escape with his new issues.
