Donovan McNabb Comes To Michael Vick’s DefenseBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Tuesday, October 30th, 2012
Donovan McNabb was in the studio for today’s NFL AM show and he was asked whether a decision to bench Michael Vick and make Nick Foles the starting quarterback would give the Eagles a better chance to win.
“No not at all. They have more issues than just the quarterback position.”
When asked about what Vick needs to do going forward.hearing the boos, hearing the radio station talk, people outside (the organization) bringing your name up
“He has to focus on his job. If you focus on your job, you block everything out. Once you start hearing the boos, hearing the radio station talk, people outside [the organization] bringing your name up[about] being benched, then you begin to lose focus. He needs to feed off his play last week [where he didn’t turn the ball over].”
Isn’t it ironic that McNabb seemed to have more confidence in Vick than one of Vick’s receivers, DeSean Jackson.
I don’t think there’s any legitimate argument with McNabb’s statement about the team having other issues. The truth is they have some very serious other issues.
Clearly Andy Reid and his staff haven’t done their best job and the offensive line has been horrible.
They weren’t able to run the ball against an Atlanta defense, which is one of the poorest run defenses in the league. They couldn’t average over three yards a carry despite having one of the best running backs in the NFL, in LeSean McCoy.
That let’s you know this offensive line is very bad. That doesn’t get Vick off the hook, but it does let you see the big picture of the problem.
