Falcons | Vick discusses Week 6, offensive philosophy

Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick told HBO's Cris Carter during an interview on Inside the NFL that after his Week 6 performance in which he was sacked a career-high seven times, "It's the worst I ever felt." Vick also discussed the team's offensive philosophy. "You've got to throw the ball sometimes," Vick said. You can't just line up and run the ball every time on first and second down. Teams key in on that and they have coaches, too. We're going to have to throw it more. Coach [Jim Mora] is going have to trust in me to get it done and I'm up to the challenge to get it done." Vick cited his time under former head coach Dan Reeves as evidence of his passing skills. "When Reeves was here, I was 50 yards shy of 3,000 yards passing, and I was among top 15 in passing in NFL. Coach Reeves, he believed in me and gave me a chance to throw the football."
