Eagles quarterback Michael Vick threw two interceptions in Friday night’s preseason game against the Bengals, and afterward he said he was disappointed in himself.
“It’s always disappointing when you turn the ball over,” Vick said. “Those are plays that you don’t want to make, you want to eliminate and give your team every opportunity to score.”
To say Vick was disappointing Friday night would be an understatement: He completed just one of five passes for six yards. But Eagles coach Andy Reid is still standing by Vick.
“We had too many turnovers,” Reid said. “He’ll eliminate them. He was trying to make things happen.”
The good news for the Eagles is that Vick is still a threat with his feet: He had three carries for 34 yards Friday night, and through two preseason games, Vick is the Eagles’ leading rusher, with 84 yards on nine carries.
