Michael Vick says in a radio interview “How can you remove Nick Foles as the Starter?”
Michael Vick has really never been in a predicament where he was a back-up, but on Thursday night in an interview Vick was asked numerous questions about his nagging hamstring as well as Nick Foles.
“In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who’s been playing so well?” Vick said.
“I’ve been in this stage before, and I know what it’s like. I understand the position that this team is in, and the one thing I never want to do is be a distraction or put our team or our coaches in a position where they feel like they’re not doing the right thing or I feel like they’re not doing the right thing.
“I trust what’s going on, I enjoy being a part of it, I love the game of football in general. So it’s important to me to be there in support and be ready if my name and number is called again.”
I have to agree, and it is great to see that Vick is supporting the scheme of Chip Kelly and being a supportive back-up. At the end of the day, the Eagles are sitting in a pretty situation.
