Reid On Vick: “Right now, we’re with Michael…. We’ll evaluate it as we go”BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Monday, September 24th, 2012
Andy Reid surely didn’t give Michael Vick must of an endorsement today at his Monday morning post game news conference. His endorsement might have been stronger if he hadn’t said anything at all. Reid was asked if he thought about making a change at quarterback considering all the hits Vick was taking and the way the offense was struggling.
“Right now, we’re with Michael and that’s what we’re doing,” Reid said. “We’ll evaluate it as we go.”
That’s not a glowing endorsement. If your wife gives you that type of endorsement, you should get a divorce attorney on the line. In that statement, Reid is clearly saying he thought about or is thinking about making a change.
When you step back and look at the situation, you can understand why.
The Giants are up next and then the Steelers.
Defenses are going to be coming after Vick for the rest of the season. Unfortunately, the offseason lessons don’t seem to have affected anything. This year’s offense has performed in much the same way as the one we saw a year ago, with the same actors in the leading roles. They run up big numbers in yardage but also lead the league in turnovers.
The Birds were fortunate in the season’s first two games to come out with victories, but it’s a proven fact that you won’t have long-term success in the NFL, if you turn over the football on a regular basis. I know the offensive line has to take some of the responsibility, but Vick has been a turnover machine.
