Reid and Vick Are Asked About The Quarterback PositionBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Thursday, September 27th, 2012
Both Andy Reid and Michael Vick talked to the media yesterday, but I don’t think everything they said was the total truth. Check out the following statements and tell me which ones are true and which ones aren’t.
Reid was asked about the comments he made on Monday about Vick and the quarterback position.
“Well, it was the way that it was interpreted”, Reid said. “That’s not what I had in mind. [Eagles director of football media services] Derek [Boyko] explained to me how it was interpreted and so, I’ve talked to Mike, made sure I mentioned it on my radio show. You guys are very good at what you do, so I [want to] make sure we clarify it. Bad semantics there.”
Is he serious? Does he expect us to believe that? Reid is always very deliberate about everything he says.
Vick was asked whether he heard Reid’s comments.
“I heard it but I really don’t pay attention to what’s being said unless I hear it from Coach himself”, Vick said. “Other than that, we’ve talked about it and it’s all about me going out and getting ready for this week against New York.”
He heard the comments but doesn’t pay attention to them unless he hears it directly from the coach.
Vick was asked if he and the team have had any problem with blitz recognition.
“We had no trouble with blitz recognition”, Vick said. “Everything is good with our offense. Everything is in sync. Everything is intact. We just have to get better. [If] we eliminate the turnovers and start fast [then] we give ourselves a chance to win games.”
I don’t know how he could give that answer with a straight face. Teams have been having major success against the Eagles offense by blitzing them. The Giants will be coming after them on Sunday night.
Reid was asked about problems with blitz recognition, specially recognizing blitzes involving defensive backs.
“I’m sure you’re talking about the one before half and that was a mishap. The rest of it, he actually had some nice checks in there and did a nice job with several of the plays.”
After the game, Vick said he saw Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes coming off the left corner on a blitz, but the truth of the matter is he didn’t see him because he got blindsided by Rhodes and never reacted to the hit because it was a surprise. I think this inability to see these blitzes could cost him his job.
Now after checking out what both of them had to say, which one was more honest in answering those questions.
