Vick in FedEx

Michael Vick has had played very well for the Eagles in his three starts at FedExField.

Vick in FedEx

Maybe the Eagles can change the location of the next meeting with the Redskins from Lincoln Financial Field to FedExField ... Or at least the first 30 minutes.

The Birds are 3-0 in Michael Vick's three starts there, outscoring the Redskins, 112-68. That includes a 91-24 advantage in the first half.

And it is not just his passing. Throwing out kneelingdowns to run out the clock, he has rushed 18 times for 191 yards in those three starts. That includes individual runs of 21, 25, 31 and 36 yards.

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
