The Eagles backed off their initial diagnosis for Michael Vick on Monday, saying he had a hand “contusion” instead of a broken non-throwing hand.
And now Vick has backed off his initial criticism of the officials following Philly’s loss Sunday.
“The refs have to do their jobs and they have tons of things to look over,” Vick said Monday via the Associated Press. “I was kind of out of character and being too candid in that aspect. Ultimately, I have respect for the referees and their decision to make calls. You won’t hear me complaining about it no more.”
Vick continues to learn that anything he says will get an undue amount of attention, even if he has a fair point. That’s potentially making Vick a little more media shy.
Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News notes that Vick didn’t do his usual radio show on Monday night. The folks that run the show were told league rules prohibit Vick from participating, but that would only be true if he was recovering from a concussion.
