The Big, Green Fumbling Machine

With eight fumbles in five games, Michael Vick is on a pace to eclipse not only the Eagles’ record for fumbles in a season (17), but also the league mark (23).

If Vick is to make his way up that dubious statistical ladder for the club, he’ll be passing Randall Cunningham (with Vickk at right) repeatedly. The former Eagles quarterback has four of the seven-highest single-season fumble totals in Birds history, as well as another season of 10 and another of nine.
