Vick Says He’s Ready To Eliminate Fumbles, But Won’t Talk About DogBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, Quarterbacks Wednesday, October 10th, 2012
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick knew he was going to asked about his fumbling problem today and he wisely stepped up and answered the question the way he should have answered it on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh.
“I expect everybody that gets close to me to be reaching for the football,” Vick said. “It’s totally my responsibility to take care of the ball and move on, especially for the sake of this football team. It’s something I’ve got to get corrected. I set a goal for interceptions, and I’ve got to set another goal. It’s a situation I’ve created for myself, and I’ve definitely got to take care of it.”
Yes, he needs to place the same focus on fumbles as he has done with interceptions because they really have hurt this football team. If he hadn’t fumbled on the goalline last week and the Birds had scored a touchdown, it could have changed the entire complexity of the game.
Vick needs to continue working on his game and who knows this offense might get in sync before the season is over. Vick and the offense has put together an outstanding late drive in each game except the Arizona contest. Going forward they’ve got to get in that grove earlier and find a way to stay there throughout the game.
The Eagles starting quarterback was unwilling to talk about a pitcher he sent out on Twitter which seemed to show that he has a dog.
“What goes on in my personal life is not to be talked about,” Vick said. “What’s more important right now is the Philadelphia Eagles and getting a win Sunday.”
Previously Vick had said he had a daughter who wanted to get a dog, but he had to wait until it was okay with his probation.
