Eagles quarterback Michael Vick felt like he let his teammates down when he threw four interceptions on Sunday, but Eagles coach Andy Reid says it’s not just on Vick.
“Offensively, turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. You just can’t have those and I would say that we didn’t play as disciplined offensively as we needed to all the way around,” Reid said, via CSNPhilly.com. “I know Michael took the blame yesterday, [but] it’s not a one-man show. That’s not what it is. Everybody had a piece of this pie starting with me and the coaches.”
Reid said the offense was moving the ball well enough that they should have put a lot more than 17 points on the board.
“You start looking at 456 yards of total offense, and then you’re not putting it in the end zone. That’s ridiculous there,” Reid said. “You have 12 penalties for 110 yards. That’s ridiculous and that’s not good football. We just have to make sure we take care of that.”
Fortunately for the Eagles, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden matched Vick’s four interceptions, while completing just 12 of 35 passes for 118 yards. The Eagles know that this week, when they host the Ravens, they won’t be able to eke out a win without the offense playing a lot better. And Reid puts that on himself.
