ESPN Report: Vick Will Be Gone If He Doesn’t Lead Eagles To PlayoffsBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Sunday, October 14th, 2012
ESPN’s Adam Schefter’s “Tweeted” that the Eagles will part ways with quarterback Michael Vick, unless he leads the team to the playoffs. That’s not hard for me to believe. If we were at the end of the season and Vick had been unable to lead them to playoffs, the Birds would be saying good-bye to him.
If the Eagles were to dump Vick prior to February 6th, they wouldn’t be obligated to pay any more of the $100 million dollar contract which he signed a year ago.
The Eagles have played only six games and Vick has already turned the ball over a total of 13 times. He threw two bad interceptions today. Both were bad decisions.
On the first INT, Jason Avant wasn’t looking back, when Vick wanted to get the ball to him, but he started looking back later on in the route, but the quarterback had a pass rusher in his face at that moment. He should have abandoned the route, but the Birds signal caller decided to make a blind throw deep down the field with a pass rusher in his face. He and the Eagles paid for the mistake.
The second interception was a throw deep downfield to DeSean Jackson, but he was closely covered by two Lions defenders. Vick showed off his arm strength on the play, but wound up with another interception on his record.
