Michael Vick carries football all week to fight fumbles

The issue of ball security has haunted Michael Vick this season. He's taking extreme measures in an attempt to fix the problem.

According to NFL.com and NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabawala, Vick carried a football with him all week at Philadelphia Eagles facilities, tucking it under his arm at breakfast, in meetings, anywhere a teammate could attempt to knock it loose.

Did anyone force a fumble in the cafeteria or elsewhere?

"They tried," he said.

Vick has eight fumbles -- five of them lost -- in five games. Ball security can be as mental as it is physical, and Vick certainly seems to be fighting it right now.

"Not to put too much emphasis on it, but to continuously remind myself that I have to take care of the football," Vick said. "You want to go out there and make it happen."

Carrying a football everywhere might sound like something a junior-varsity quarterback would do in the hallways, but give Vick points for effort.

I guess it runs in the family. His cousin had the same problem.

You kids get off my lawn!

Re: Michael Vick carries football all week to fight fumbles

Hey, that's a good training regimen ... I think I saw them do that on "Remember The Titans" ... helped Petey hold onto a fumble recovery at the end of the movie to win the championship game ... I wonder if they're setting Vick up for some sort of inspirational football movie ... hmmm.

old Vince Lombardi trick...except in the old days they used to MAKE you carry it around, not voluntary.

Re: Michael Vick carries football all week to fight fumbles

Only problem, Vick is a QB, not a RB. He's going to hold on to the ball on his throwing hand as long as he's behind the LOS. As soon as he tucks it in behind the LOS...

Someone saw The Program.

I brought this up a few weeks ago... Ivory should be carrying the ball every where.
