When Riley Cooper and Cary Williams fought at Eagles practice, Michael Vick ran into the scrum to separate them. A day later, Vick said he has talked to Williams, who has a reputation for a short temper, about keeping cool
“Cary understands that we need him on the football field, not to be hot-headed at times,” Vick told CSNPhilly.com. “We know he’s a guy who’s very into his work and what we do, and he can’t be high-strung all the time. He’s got to stay even-keel like everybody else, just out of respect for the game more than anything.”
Vick said he reminded Williams that he can’t let anger at a teammate stew because his focus needs to be on Monday night’s game against Washington.
“We’ve got to focus on winning this game,” Vick said. “Cary’s OK. He understands that he has to control his temper sometimes, we all do, but we all are men at the end of the day and sometimes tempers do flare, but that’s normal.”
Williams would be wise to listen to Vick and keep his temper in check.
