The Eagles force fed Michael Vick into a wildcat offense on and off for the first eight games this season and were finally able to try out their wildcat special teams formation on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Rather than have David Akers come in to attempt a field goal in the third quarter, the Eagles lined Vick up behind Sav Rocca in an attempt to throw off the defense.

“Our wildcat special teams has the same element of surprise and mystery of our wildcat offense,” Andy Reid said on Monday. “Defenses have to anticipate the run, pass and kick all on the same play. It’s a defense’s worst nightmare. Or at least it would be, if Michael knew how to pass or kick. Or run for that matter.”
