NFL Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick Incorrectly Says Team Controls Their Own Destiny

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

If there is ever a time to stop talking, now is the time. The Philadelphia Eagles are 3-5 and the play of quarterback Michael Vick is becoming one of the biggest reasons why, as he’s committed the third-most turnovers by any quarterback in the league this season.

Yet Vick continues to talk about how the Eagles are going to turn this ship around. Here are his latest comments, and this time they’re not even completely accurate.

“It’s on us to get it all turned around, man. We just have to keep pushing,” Vick told Phillymag.com. “The thing is, we still have a fighting chance, we still control our own destiny, so we all have to be held accountable.”

“We all understand the situation — hopefully everybody understands the situation. I know I do,” Vick said. “It’s not a situation we planned on being in. But you’ve seen a lot of teams with their backs against the wall and they come out doing everything they need to do in order to succeed. We’ve got to take on that mindset; we’ll find out on Sunday.”

First of all, the Eagles do not control their own destiny. They did before last week, but now they could still hypothetically win their final eight regular season games and miss the playoffs. That wouldn’t happen, but the Eagles also aren’t going to win their final eight games.

I have reached the point where I cannot stress enough how much I want Vick to stop talking. Shut your mouth and go out there on the football field and win. And since you can’t do that, stop talking.

I’m tired of all of the Eagles players saying that they can turn this season around. They can’t and they won’t. It’s time to stop talking.
