Shanahan compares Vick to Young
By Dan Graziano
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was in San Francisco when both Joe Montana and Steve Young were on the roster. And without prompting, he brought up Young's name when he was asked Wednesday about Michael Vick now being a throw-first quarterback.
"When you can do both, you really present some problems," Shanahan said. "When I was in San Francisco and had Steve Young, Steve Young could do it all. He could sit back there and read. When he had to make a play when things would break down, he could make plays on his feet. That’s what it looks like Michael [Vick] is doing right now. He can sit back there pretty poised and obviously is very fast and elusive.”
Something tells me Jim Haslett is going to throw everything at Vick on Sunday. You'll see him bring the pressure up the middle in and effort to try and throw Vick out of rhythm. I would expect for Haslett to assign a spy to Vick at all times. It will either be London Fletcher or LaRon Landry.
