Michael Vick Not Buying Report About Quick Hook During Packers GameCoaching Staff, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Wednesday, January 5th, 2011
Paolantonio had reported that Vick was having problems recognizing the blitzes which the Eagles were seeing and because of it Reid was going to be open to removing him the game for Kevin Kolb.
“Writers are gonna write what they wanna write, say what they wanna say,” Vick said. “I don’t know the validity to that, but I’m just gonna go out and play my game. I know what I see on film, what I trust in my offensive line. You know, it’s not hard to see a blitz, I mean it’s easy. Minnesota did some things we’d never seen before. So, it’s all about adjusting and all about remaining confident and not making any game too complicated.”
If you check out Vick in the interview he did with the media on Monday, you can see that he’s starting to not trust the sports media here in Philadelphia. It’s going to be interesting how his news conference goes today.
Vick said he didn’t like reporters making erroneous reports. You could hear that it bothered him.
Reid made it clear that Vick is his quarterback on Monday when he was on 610-WIP.
“The quarterback of the Eagles is Michael Vick and that’s the way we go about business, ” Reid said. “People say stuff all the time. I know how things escalate with the different networks and Internet. The quarterback is Michael Vick and that’s the way were going with it.”
I think Reid realizes that Vick is the only way they’re going to have any chance of beating the Packers. The defense is sure to give up at 24 points if they play well. If they don’t play well, Green Bay might score more than 30. The only way the Packers don’t score a lot of points will be if the Eagles get to Aaron Rodgers and knock him out of the game.
In fairness to Sal, he made that report before Kolb had that terribly poor outing against the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday.
Here’s the 610-WIP interview with Michael Vick.
