Andy Reid Needs To Threaten Mike Vick.

Posted October 07, 2012

I think Mike Vick is getting a little too complacent.  When he first got out of jail, he was a guy who was humbled by what he loss because of his own mistakes. Now Vick is back with the money, the freedom, and apparently the complacency. Mike Vick was never a guy who was good at holding onto the football, but it takes a special kind of player to fumble the ball when he doesn't get hit! Mike Vick right now seems like a guy who is taking his opportunity to be the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles for granted. He doesn't seem to have any concern for his turnovers. Still unwilling to change his game choosing to dive rather than slide for first downs. Still throwing balls to well covered receivers and trying to force balls down field. Still missing open targets. It's time for Andy to give Mike an ultimatum. It's time for Reid to threaten him with a benching. It's time to give the young kid more snaps at practice just to put Vick on notice. It's time for Mike Vick to see that he shouldn't take this amazing opportunity he has in life for granted. He already has once. I hope he's smart enough to change his ways and not lose out on this great privilege twice in life. Come the bye week maybe Vick needs to take a field trip back to that prison cell he spent so much time in. Maybe he needs to rekindle that motivation that drove him to never want to go back to that place. Maybe then we will get back 2010 Mike Vick and not this guy who doesn't seem to care if he's a turnover machine and who seems more concerned with talking a good game instead of playing one.
