Michael Vick is a changed man since returning to the NFL, and one thing that he is now, is class personified.
Nick Foles has thrown 16 touchdowns, and no interceptions on the season, yet it was Vick who had the courage to say what others around him were hesitant to.
According to CSN Philly, Vick said “there’s no way Foles can come out of the lineup now.”
Vick, during his weekly, paid call-in spot on radio station 94 WIP, said Thursday night that the Eagles need to let Foles continue to play after Vick is fully healed from his nagging hamstring injury.
“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.”
Vick was interviewed by WIP afternoon hosts Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow.
Vick is no dummy either.
This kind of team first attitude will allow him to remain in the NFL on somebody’s roster next season.
