Michael Vick: “I expect LeSean, DeSean And Jeremy To Be Leaders”BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Sunday, February 17th, 2013
“I expect LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin to be leaders,” Michael Vick said yesterday on ESPN’s 97.5 radio station. Vick said he plans on pushing himself and his teammates to improve their record in the upcoming season.
Vick, who took some verbal shots at his teammates after the final game of the season, doesn’t think there’s going to be in problem with his teammates because of his critical comments.
“I talked to about 15, 16 of my teammates already,” said Vick.”They know me as a person. They know me as a competitor. I wasn’t pointing the finger at one person. It would have been easy to just point out one group of guys or a couple individuals who I thought could have played better, but I said that including myself.”
Vick knows the most important thing he’s got to do is improve his own play. The lefthander needs to stay away from interceptions and fumbles.
“Well if you think about what I endured [last season] and how many hits I took, I stayed upright for seven games and took about 180 hits,” he said. “I am going to train the way I train, I’m not going to change anything. I’m going to be who I am and I’m not going to change. I think everybody just has to accept it. I am going to put in all the hard work to be the best player I can be, but it’s not just about me. It’s about team, it’s about unity, it’s about everybody playing together. That’s the only way I’m going to win.”
“That was five years ago,” said Vick. “We’re talking about winning championships now, putting ourselves in position to win and what makes sense. They know that I’m thankful for what they’ve done for me — I could have parted ways two years ago when I signed the franchise tag — that’s not an issue.”
