~PHILADELPHIA — The Green Bay Packers almost lived a Michael Vick nightmare on Sunday.

Vick still might not be the quarterback he was before going to prison in 2007 for his role in a dog-fighting ring, but while playing in the second half for injured Kevin Kolb, he showed he still has the legs to scare the bejesus out of a defense. 

“We’re short defensive linemen, we were playing against a very mobile quarterback. That was a tough, gutty performance by our football team,” a relaxed and happy coach Mike McCarthy said after the game. Above, OLB Frank Zombo sacks Vick.

His efforts to rally the Philadelphia Eagles from a 17-point deficit fell short because the Packers made just enough plays against his scattershot throwing and stopped him on a critical fourth-and-1 run in the game’s final minutes.

But this game was a sign that Vick still is a formidable player who had the Packers feeling pretty good after surviving the fourth quarter at hostile Lincoln Financial Field on an opening day when they were nowhere near the offensive juggernaut they looked like at times in the preseason.
