Vick says he’s at 75 percent, but will play

Michael Vick

In an interview with ESPN Radio in Virginia Beach, Eagles quarterback Mike Vick addressed the status of his quad injury in advance of Sunday’s wild-card against against the Packers.

He said he went from 50 to 75 percent in one day.  Which leaves (abacus initiated) 25 percent to go to get him to 100 percent.

So could he miss the game?

“That’ll never happen,” Vick said.  “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.”

Though he also said he won’t do anything to hurt the team, there’s a chance that his assessment of whether he’s hurting the team will conflict with the team’s assessment.  Coupled with the fact that Vick has been rattled of late by creative blitz packages, there could be a very real chance that Vick starts but doesn’t finish the game.

    Sounds like he’s trying to lull the Packers into a false sense of complacency!

    He’s actually at 110%!

  2. faulkana says: Jan 3, 2011 8:57 PM

    This scumbag is losing his act.
    The true Vick is creeping back out.
    Get Tony Dungy ready, we’re gonna need a third chance soon.

    One thing we can thank the Queens for is how the exposed Vick. Hit him early and often.

  4. nfl4ever says: Jan 3, 2011 9:00 PM

    Wonder how Mike’s dogs fared when they were at 75%? any guesses?

    To be fair I gotta give the guy props, he is a big time competitor and will play hurt but I think the Eagles are going down to GB this week.

  5. turk2875 says: Jan 3, 2011 9:00 PM

    Alright, lets be real about this. Vick WONT be benced. If Vick somehow gets benched, Mike Kafka has a better chance of beating the Packers then Kolb does!!

  6. philgrek says: Jan 3, 2011 9:06 PM

    What a set-up! Putting aside the ridiculous notion that one can estimate the percentage at which they’re feeling (wtf?!), comments like Vick’s are total B.S.

    If he plays terribly, now he can claim that he wasn’t at “100%”, like he said. If he plays well, his 75% status will be used to over-hype his performance.

  7. richm2256 says: Jan 3, 2011 9:06 PM

    Vick went from 50% one day to 75% the next?

    How did he manage to do that without any miracle drug? Did he need a special “travel mug” to pull this off?

    Not to worry folks; Green Bay’s defense gave Brady and New England fits, and if they can do that to a three time Super Bowl winner, maybe they can do it to this MVP wannabe who is already having trouble reading a blitz.

    And yet, they lost to the Lions. They weren’t exactly lighting the world on fire when Rogers was in the game either. I’m an Eagles fan, and I think its the best game on the dockett Sunday. The only one thats a pretty true 50/50 game.

  9. giablommi says: Jan 3, 2011 9:15 PM

    Eagles season started with a loss to Green Bay at home and will end with a loss to Green Bay at home.

    Way to get peak going into the playoffs, Phrauds

  10. jimmycannon says: Jan 3, 2011 9:16 PM

    Vick at 75 better than Kolb at 100…Doesn’t matter. Pack 29-17.

  11. jimmysee says: Jan 3, 2011 9:45 PM

    Iggles are 2-1/2 point favorites.

    All the lines are pretty close — except the Saints – Seahawks.

    Should be a real good weekend!

  12. jimmysee says: Jan 3, 2011 9:48 PM

    Hey — is there a line somewhere on the likelihood of a bird team winning it all?

    Iggles, Seahawks, Falcons, Ravens in the hunt.

  13. smellmyface says: Jan 3, 2011 10:05 PM

    setting the stage for when he gets benched for being to dumb to pick up and read the defense

  14. mikemccarthystimemgmt says: Jan 3, 2011 10:11 PM

    Unless Vick learned how to read blitz packages in prison, he wont have a chance. Dom Capers > Michael Vick

  15. b7p19 says: Jan 3, 2011 10:14 PM

    I love that everyone is picking against the Eagles. They’ve gone from “average” to “exceptional” and back again about three times according to the media.

    Is there anyone out there that can look at a total body of work and not overreact to every week?

    Might want to thank the Giants since they were the ones that showed he could be contained. Unfortunately they didn’t do it for all 60 minutes or else they’d be in the playoffs.

  17. nokoolaidcowboy says: Jan 3, 2011 10:27 PM

    I was told there would be no math.

  18. laeaglefan says: Jan 3, 2011 10:33 PM

    If Vick can walk he’ll start AND finish the game. Did you see Kevin Kolb yesterday against the Cowboys?
    No way he gets in that playoff game unless the Eagles are getting blown out and its beyond winnable. Vick brought the team back from 31-10 with 7 1/2 minutes to play, so not much chance we’ll be seeing Kevin Kolb on Sunday unless Vick is too injured to walk onto the field.

    —You sound like a retard. What the hell are you talking about? Losing his act? He’s talking about his injury status and obviously trying to put doubt in the Packers’ minds.

  20. ham1 says: Jan 3, 2011 10:39 PM

    And so it begins. The foundation is being laid for the Egirls to squander a SB win. They will never do it. No amount of daily “percentage” posts on Vickeys status will change that. Your not gonnna win a superbowl. Ever.

  21. tigrrrr says: Jan 3, 2011 10:47 PM

    Vick is a no good liar, and poor excuse for a human being. You cant believe anything he says. Sheesh, he said he didnt know know dog fighting was wrong, as he had all the buildings painted black to hide them.

  22. rick1922 says: Jan 3, 2011 10:57 PM

    Ihope this scum bag gets his on Sunday.

  23. meattuperello says: Jan 3, 2011 11:07 PM

    If you want to see the real Vick watch him jump around in front of the camera after the Eagles/Giants game.

    That is the real Vick just jumping around like a ________________________ come up with your own insult.

    The POS shouldn’t be in the league at all.

    Go Packers..> Beat him into the ground and then curb stomp him.

  24. hobartbaker says: Jan 3, 2011 11:11 PM

    It’s only Monday. Mike should be around 225% ready by next Sunday.

  25. dolphinatic says: Jan 3, 2011 11:14 PM

    I love my dogs as much as anyone but the man served his time and debt to society. Get off his nuts, I doubt anymore dogs are at risk from him, lesson learned,tax payer status restored.

  26. dogluverssuck says: Jan 3, 2011 11:28 PM

    You “BlueEyeDevils” need to give it up.

    You can hate Vick all you want, but nobody cares about some stupid stinking dogs.

    HA HA HA.

  27. behanzin says: Jan 3, 2011 11:33 PM

    Lets go Mike Vick after every game your team wins in the playoffs thrust your fist in the air like Tommie Smith and John Carlos did in the 68 olympics but dont hold your head down look America in the eye win you do it …….. why is it that when blacks were (are) allowed to participate that we become the best at what it is we are participating in.

  28. vikescry1 says: Jan 4, 2011 12:25 AM

    vick is full of $hit

  29. titanswin says: Jan 4, 2011 12:34 AM

    So believing that he is 75%…… which is a better team Philly with Vick at 75% OR GB with Rodgers and rest of team about 93%??? look forward to your answers… MY ANSWER- im saying VICK :)

    b7p19 says: “Is there anyone out there that can look at a total body of work and not overreact to every week?”

    Is 44 years of being completely unable to win a Super Bowl a “total body of work”?

  31. db105 says: Jan 4, 2011 1:05 AM

    Time to line up Vick’s excuses.

  32. machinehead420 says: Jan 4, 2011 1:47 AM

    O.K.! He is at 75 percent, he needs to go down to ZERO percent. BLITZ BLITZ BLITZ. I personally hate that dog killer, he will never be forgiven, if it weren’t for him getting caught he would still be killing and fighting dogs. Take his knees out!!!

  33. sdw2001 says: Jan 4, 2011 7:20 AM

    RIGHT. Because we haven’t yet, we won’t ever. Makes perfect sense.

  34. phillybirds says: Jan 4, 2011 7:34 AM

    Hahaha I love when people talk bad about Mike Vick. What were you guys all saying before the Eagles put up 28 points in 8 mins against the G-Men??? Worry about your own teams if theyre in the playoffs. Mike Vick is coming for you!

    come on! at the end of the day he’s still michael vick!

  36. getsome636 says: Jan 4, 2011 8:52 AM

    Vick’s last six games—9 fumbles, 6 picks. Last time I checked, the Packers beat the Giants 45-17 with rodgers throwing for 400 yards and 4 TDs. Vick needed a desperation punt return, he did not win it, prickhead #10 did.

    Im not saying the Packers are going to crush the Eagles, but either way Philly is going nowhere with Vick. He is quickly slipping back to his Atlanta self. Ill advised throws, looks like a deer in the headlights when he sees a blitz.

  37. danwhitmer says: Jan 4, 2011 9:30 AM

    Sounds like he is saying I am 75% so if we loose i have an excuse……..

  38. cmagwood says: Jan 4, 2011 9:41 AM

    Michael Vick is the Most Valuable Player in the National Football League, and the most exciting player that ever played the game of football. Tom Brady couldn’t carry his jock strap. Mike Vick all the way go Eagles!!

  39. wegogreenbay says: Jan 4, 2011 10:20 AM

    Can we all agree to stop using Iggles to refer to Eagles? It was never all that funny and stopped being cute ages ago.

  40. hockey64 says: Jan 4, 2011 10:22 AM

    The Packer/Eagles game is going to be more about Aaron Rodgers who was anointed in the preseason as the MVP. Rodgers needs to win a playoff game and then he can stepup into the elite quarterbacks of the league.

    Last year he put up great stats against the Cardinals in the playoffs, but in overtime he missed a wide open receiver and fumbled the ball away to end the game. It’s all about winning baby.

    AGREED. Finally, someone who looks at the game logically. Its gonna be good

  42. getsome636 says: Jan 4, 2011 10:45 AM

    CMAGWOOD—–I have to believe that you are joking, Vick is not even in the top 5 of MVPs in the league. I find it interesting that he has played in 11 games this year and only played well in 2/3rds of them, yet you morons feel like he is great.

    Scott Mitchell had 8 good games years ago, Rob Johnson as well, anybody think they are great? Didnt think so……… He needs to put together a couple of seasons before I am a believer.

  43. getsome636 says: Jan 4, 2011 10:49 AM

    Hockey64—–I agree, I am a big Packers/Rodgers fan and if he is truly “elite”, he needs to win this game no matter what it takes. Hopefully he is lights out and the Packers move on, but we will see.

  44. grogansheroes says: Jan 4, 2011 10:59 AM

    Who does Vicki have for an agent, Favre? Because in true Favrian manner, he has set himself up for a win win. If he loses, he wasn’t healthy, if he wins, oh what a warrior, beating the big, bad GB Packers on one leg. And, like Favre, most people see through this ruse.

  45. CKL says: Jan 4, 2011 1:55 PM

    Yeah Vick is Favring it up…or Roethlisbergering it up.
    Public injury whining+poor performance=win “he’s a WARRIOR”
    public injury whining+ good performance=hero worship=win

    As for the GB defense I as a Pats fan thought it was the toughest defense NE faced all year. Whew. My hat is off to them.

  46. n0hopeleft says: Jan 4, 2011 2:19 PM

    I heard the NFL Network was going to re-air “The Top 10 Coaches Without a Superbowl Ring” tonight.

    They should probably just add Andy Reid’s name to the list, because the only thing that fat POS will be hoisting is a steak sandwich with some “WHIZZZZ” on it.

    PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: Choke artists of the CENTURY!

  47. childressrulz says: Jan 4, 2011 3:28 PM

    The Eagles, Vick, and phily fans are all a bunch of overrated pansies. I am not saying the packers will win. However if they do the Eagles should be shot for impersonating an NFL team. I mean how do you let a Packers team chocked full of backups beat you in the playoffs?
