After Sunday’s blow out loss to the Giants, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick voiced his frustrations with how poorly his teammates played.“You watch us play and we don’t exhibit the things that we do in practice,” Vick said. “It’s frustrating. It’s difficult because, me, I leave it all out on the field and I give it everything I’ve got. Sometimes, I wish I could play other positions, but I can’t.”When told that this was the first time he was so critical of his teammates, Vick interjected, saying he was not being critical of their effort. But he was at a loss to explain the team’s play.“You’re down 21-0 and the first quarter isn’t even over. What is that?” Vick said. “I just know it’s a big difference than what we were going through last year and the year before, and it shouldn’t be that way. I have to sit here and be candid right now, and if every guy in that locker room was to come up to this podium, they should say the same thing I say – verbatim.”Vick was asked if he wanted to be with the Eagles next season. “I don’t know,” he said. “I just have to take time to think about everything that happened this season and reflect on it.”Vick certainly had one of the worst season’s of his career, but the Eagles never came together as a team , which led them to being a dreadful team on the field. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
