    Yes, Yes, and YES!!!

    There are 3 things in play with VY...

    First, he's our starting QB and as such we need him to help us win games. That means if he needs to limit his reads to 2 guys and run, then let him do that...but teach him HOW and WHEN to slide...

    Second, we don't want him to run TOO much or he'll get hurt and that would wreck a lot of things...like his...

    Future (third). Much like McNair and Vick, he'll need time to develop his reading ability both in reading defenses and his progressions within the context of the play.

    I've seen a lot of good stuff that Chow has given him...especially off of his read play and some of the play-action stuff. Whenever you have a struggling QB, play-action is the best way to get them on track because you usually can negate the read of the LB's who should be a step or more out of position.

    Of course, this relies on 2 things....a strong running game and a relatively stout D. When you're down 20-0 in a half, that takes you out of that gameplan.

    I like what's going on with VY. It was one of those learning games for VY...which you'd expect facing a high caliber D. Of course, it'd help if our D could do something!

    The biggest thing Vince is doing now is making downfield reads when running. Now you can see he has more confidence in his arm and is making throws instead of using his legs. That is what I wanted to see. The 3 read progressions in the pocket will come with time. The only thing I fault Chow on right now is putting him into so many 3rd down situations because we ran on the first two. Maybe Chow feels it's better for Vince to be in 3rd and short rather than letting him throw on second down, but it's getting pretty obvious to a lot of teams what we are doing.

    It is obvious what Atlanta does with Vick, and he just broke 1000 yards.

    Vince just needs to keep playing, and watch film, and he will learn over the years.

    Vick rushing for 1000 yards means nothing. They managed to put up 3 points last week at home. Vince is already a better QB.

    The point is that it is obvious what they do with Vick and they can't stop him running.
