After last week’s Eagles loss, quarterback Michael Vick questioned the officiating. After this week’s Eagles loss, Vick questioned the reporters who were questioning him.
At his postgame press conference, Vick was asked how he felt about being 1-3. He didn’t care for the question.
“Do I really have to explain how I feel at 1-3? Do I really have to explain that to everyone here? It’s frustrating. I can’t put that into words,” Vick said.
Vick says he’s stunned that the Eagles have already lost three games.
“It’s shocking,” Vick said. “It’s frustrating. Other than that, I don’t know what to say.”
Vick certainly can’t be blamed for the loss to the 49ers: He completed 30 of 46 passes for 416 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception, and added 75 yards rushing. But he said he believes he’s the one who needs to turn it around.
“I take full responsibility,” Vick said. “There are a lot of things that I can do better. I gotta figure it out.”
And Vick made clear that he believes the players, not the coaches, are the ones who have to make changes.
“We just have to figure it all out. We need to take the coaches out of the equation,” Vick said. “We have to take into consideration ourselves and go out and make it happen. That’s about it. They can’t go on the field and play for us. We have to go out and make it work. We have to get it done. We have to get it done.”
A quarter of the way through the season, the “Dream Team” is not getting anything done, except falling into last place in the NFC East.
