Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick still isn’t at full strength after suffering a quad injury in his team’s week 16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but still plans to play against the Green Bay Packers, Sunday.
“That’ll never happen,” Vick said, when asked about the possibility of missing the game. “Regardless of what the situation is, I’m gonna make sure I’m there for my team. . . . I’m pretty confident that I’ll be able to go out there and play.”
Vick claims he’s currently at 75 percent, but felt he was at 50 percent on Sunday, so he’s apparently making a rapid recovery.
Philadelphia enters the playoffs on a two-game losing streak. In addition to dropping the game against Minnesota, they also lost 14-13 to Dallas in week 17.
Backup quarterback Kevin Kolb started that game and was an unimpressive 18-of-36 for 162 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. He was sacked six times and lost a fumble.
Kolb was the Eagles starter at the beginning of the season, but suffered a concussion against the Packers in the season’s opening week, which ultimately led to Vick taking his job.
I suggest that Dom & MM watch film from the QUEENS game a few weeks back & adapt the same plan of attack. If Jenkins comes back, look out CLAYMAKER…
we need Zombo and Jenkins for depth! Dont forget Jenkins broke his hand vs. these clowns!!! I also wish we wouldnt have put Barnett on IR when we did…he’s ready to go now :(
Vicks a good QB but not as big of a d-bag as Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers.
We should be able to tourch that secondary (weather permitting)
Subtract the ridiculous first half against the Skins and Vick is not nearly as scary. Thankfully Capers D is much better than Washington’s.
Do you also subtract the absurd second half of the Meadowlands Giants game?
Actually, Vick stunk it up through 3 quarters of that Giants game. In the 4th quarter he went on a ridiculous tear, greatly aided by a backed off Giants defense.
If an injured quad truly slows down Vick’s ability to run, Philly is in deep shit. If he is slowed at all, Capers can turn the dogs loose on him. He hasn’t been great at picking up the blitz; so if he can’t run away from it, he will struggle.
I think somebody should put a Michael Vick jersey on a chicken and let it loose in a kennel full of starving dogs with Clay Mathews, B.J. Raji, and Desmond Bishop jerseys on, that way we can get an idea of what Sunday afternoon has in store for us.
SWEEP THE LEG DOM!! NO MERCY!!!!
LMAO. Haven’t heard a KarateKid refrence in a while.
I’m pretty sure Vick will be at 99% come sunday. This is probly some bullshit ploy to get Dom to think twice about how to attack these fucks, but either way it wont matter. I’m sure he’s gonna have multiple stratagies for diffrent situation after what happen with Klob going down week one. Hopfully the defensive coaching staff learned from that change up after the QB change
