Cary Williams was brought to Philadelphia to bring Super Bowl experience and quality play at the cornerback position.
So far Williams has been anything but an experienced veteran for the Eagles. On the heels of his fight with Riley Cooper on Thursday, the question now being asked, is whether or not Williams is a liability for the Eagles.
Michael Vick, who is the teams captain, and starting quarterback, stressed to CSN Philly that “if Williams doesn’t calm down, it will hurt the team.”
“I know after yesterday, Cary understands that we need him on the football field, not to be hot-headed at times,” Vick said Friday, per CSN Philadelphia. “We know he’s a guy who’s very into his work and what we do, and he can’t be high-strung all the time. He’s got to stay even-keel like everybody else, just out of respect for the game more than anything.”
Vick stressed again with Monday night looming, that the Eagles must get focused.
“We’ve got to focus on football,” Vick said. “We’ve got to focus on winning this game. Cary’s OK. He understands that he has to control his temper sometimes, we all do, but we all are men at the end of the day and sometimes tempers do flare, but that’s normal.”
