Mike Vick is not happy with the way things went down in practice Thursday.
Two of Vick’s Eagles teammates, Riley Cooper and Cary Williams, engaged in a heated tussle during a non-contact practice on Thursday. Williams reportedly used a racial slur during the altercation, saying “I’m not a n- you [mess] with,” according to Philly.com.
Vick, along with a few other Eagles players, stepped in to break up the fight, and the quarterback was praised by reporters after practice for being the peacemaker.
“I try to be the peacemaker, but these young dudes don’t respect me,” Vick said, as he gestured his head toward Williams, according to Philly.com.
“Our maturity level’s gotta be on a whole different plane,” he said. “Regardless of who the catalyst was for the whole fight, that doesn’t matter. We’ve gotta be men. We’re not guys who are out on the street, fighting one another. We’re teammates … It’s game week. We don’t have time for that. I don’t. It’s a distraction.”

This was bound to happen, and now hopefully it will pull the Eagles together.
Jeff McLane is reporting that Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a fight at practice this morning.
No word on what started the fight, but we can be certain that the trolls will blame it on Cooper’s use of the N word last month.
Here are some additional details and the video...
Many people wanted to throw down with Riley Cooper after video of the Eagles wideout using racial slurs at a June concert hit the internet earlier this summer, but very few believed a teammate would be one of them.
Cary Williams and Cooper reportedly got into a scuffle at Eagles practice on Thursday according to Philadelphia media members. The cause of the scuffle is unknown and...
Cary Williams for lack of a better phrase is a sh*t starter.
I don’t know if that will be good or bad for the Eagles in the long run, but in the short term, I don’t think he is having a positive effect on the team.
He has gotten into a few scuffles this offseason and at a time where they Eagles need to be coming together, he is pulling them apart.
This has always been my problem...

Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a fight on the field on Thursday during the Philadelphia Eagles practice. Here's a video of the brawl.
Mmmm. So two Eagle’s players get in a tussle at practice and one of them happens to be Riley Cooper. While it’s all speculative, one can only assume what sparked Cary Williams’s beef with Cooper.
According to Philly.com, here’s what went down,
Williams threw punches at Cooper and had to be forcibly pulled away after he went back after the wide receiver after the initial...
> Neither man was hurt from the funsies, or missed any amount of practice team
> Neither man is very likely to play a very big role on the next Eagles playoff team (earliest ETA 2014)
> It really does not seem like either man came into the event with an agenda, and probably just got into each other because they are both, well, demonstrable and verified idiots...
Fights during practice don’t usually mean much — it’s just guys blowing their tops for a minute during rehearsals that can be physical, whether the NFL likes it or not. However, the Thursday scuffle between two Philadelphia Eagles — receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams — might be indicative of larger issues. Quarterback Michael Vick was the one breaking up...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Riley Cooper, who left the Philadelphia Eagles for three days in training camp after a video of him making a racial slur surfaced on the Internet, got into a scuffle with Cary Williams at practice Thursday.
Williams was covering Cooper, broke up a pass from Michael Vick and both players went to the ground. Cooper got up and shoved Williams first. Williams responded...
On Thursday I went from wondering if the fight between Riley Cooper and Cary Williams was a normal practice scuffle, to believing that there was more to it once I saw the video. And now, an unnamed Eagles player has stepped forward with information backing my belief.
According to this player, the fight was definitely related to the video that surfaced of Cooper using racial slurs...
Eagles coach Chip Kelly said there's no fall-out after Thursday's scuffle between Riley Cooper and Cary Williams and that it quickly went away. “We went right back to team period and both those guys lined up and played" Kelly said. "A matter of fact Mike threw the ball deep to Riley on the first play of team period and Cary was covering him.
So I don’t see...
QB: Michael Vick at WAS – Despite disappointing many owners who drafted him early last season, Michael Vick opens this season with a juicy matchup. Facing off against a Redskins secondary that allowed the 3rd most passing yards in the league last season, Vick should start the season on a high note.
RB: Steven Jackson at NO – Rushing against the worst run defense in the...
“I will jump that fence and fight every ******, here.”
There is no foreign fuel that conjured Riley Cooper’s words at that Kenny Chesney concert this summer. It wasn’t the warm air. It wasn’t the country music. It wasn’t the alcohol, or the anger, the adrenaline. Tongues can be loosened by such an atmosphere. But ignorance is only released from hearts that contain it...
Hey, you remember how this works, right? I hope so, we’ve done it for years.
Anyhoo, our Redskins-loving “staff” makes predictions in the post, readers make predictions in the comments, and the commenter who comes closest to predicting the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!
