Michael Vick Confident In His Team; Gets Birthday Gift From CowboysBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News Friday, June 29th, 2012
It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles are on the hot seat this season. With star-studded line-ups on both sides of the football, making the playoffs should be no problem for this group. After speaking at the NFL Rookie Symposium, Eagles QB Michael Vick spoke about the pressure on he and his teammates with the NFL Network.
“The only time we talk about it (the pressure) is when we talk to the media so it’s like it doesn’t even exist to us because we’re so motivated on the season and excited about the season,” Vick said. “We’re really excited about going into this year as far as football and being able to go out and have fun and play good football. Not to prove anything to the world or to the critics, but to ourselves that we can play with the best.”
The Eagles have the individual talent to compete with the league elites, but the burning question is if they can mold all of their individual talent into a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Although the Eagles ended the season with four consecutive wins, they started the year losing four of their first frive games, which eventually led to an 8-8 record and no postseason. However, with a year of experience under their belts and a full offseason to prepare, Vick and the Eagles are as confident as ever.
Speaking of playing with any team in the league, one division opponent is already anticipating a meeting with the Eagles this season. The Dallas Cowboys wished Michael Vick a happy birthday on Tuesday by tweeting a photo of the quarterback being sacked by Demarcus Ware. The photo read “Happy Birthday M. Vick See You Nov. 11.” Although the Eagles did have their woes last season, one team they did not struggle with is the Dallas Cowboys. In both of their victories last year, Vick threw for nearly 300 yards and he completed two touchdown passes in each game. Although I applaud the Cowboys for their humor, they’re only adding more fuel to the fire. November 11th can’t get here soon enough.
