Vick Concedes To Giving Up Starting Job, Although Reid’s Not Benching HimBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Sunday, October 28th, 2012
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was asked a question after the game, but it was a question which included a false statement. He was asked how he felt about Andy Reid saying that he was evaluating the quarterback situation again.
Reid didn’t say he was evaluating the quarterback position like he did earlier in the season. Vick reacted to the false statement like he knew he was going to lose his job.
“Obviously, he’s thinking about making a change at the quarterback position,” Vick said after the Eagles lost to the Falcons. “The thing I do know, when I go and watch the film and evaluate myself, I’m giving us every opportunity to win. I’m trying my hardest. Some things don’t go right when I want them to, some things do.
“If that’s the decision coach wants to make, then I support it.”
One rule for players is to never assume a coach or player said something unless you hear them say it yourself. I don’t think the reporter meant to make a mistake and tell Vick that Reid said something that he never said. I would be shocked if Reid takes Vick out of the lineup because I didn’t think he played poorly today.
He didn’t turn the ball over and seemed to be accurate with his throws. I thought the defense was the biggest culprit in today’s game.
I was surprised that Vick reacted the way he did. He conceded to giving up his starting job, although Andy Reid never said he was considering taking it from him.
