Vick is cracking under the pressure or he know anything he says will be twisted and manipulated by the media so it is better just not to say anything. Both actually can be true, in the end him quitting the show it is probably for the best.
According to Gregg Rosenthal of ProFootballTalk.com, news broke on Monday that Vick will no longer participate on the radio show–which means he lasted just one show after the Eagles Week 1 win over the St. Louis Rams. Vick was unable to appear on the show two weeks ago after suffering a concussion against the Atlanta Falcons and his reason for missing last week’s show is unknown–so he ended up missing more shows than he actually appeared on.
While this is nothing to make a huge deal about, Rosenthal brings up an interesting point by wondering if Vick’s decision to stop appearing on the show has anything to do with the team’s 1-3 start. It’s no secret Vick and the rest of the organization are feeling frustrated with the way this season has started out considering all of the preseason hype and Rosenthal questions whether or not Vick would still be willing to do the show if things if the Eagles had a better record.
It is obvious that Vick would still be doing the show if the Eagles were 4-0 or even 3-1, but in the position that they are in he or the Eagles have decided it is best to protect him from himself.
You can already see he is on the brink of a media meltdown.
There is no need to panic just yet for the not so much Dream Team, but they need to get it together and soon or the weight of expectations will bury them.
