Michael Vick needs to have a great game to beat Atlanta. Vick will face his former team and he played off the reunion in a recent interview with John Manasso of Fox Sports.
Vick called Sunday “just another game.”
“Last year, going back to Atlanta, that was special,” he said, as he backed up Donovan McNabb in 2009, “so it added a little bit to the game. Now, it’s just two good football teams going head-to-head and it’s going to be a good football game. Nothing extra added to it. I’m not getting any more pumped for this game than any other game. It’s just another game that we’ve got to play on Sunday and another game we’ve got to win.”
Vick is saying all of the right things, but this game is very important to him and his team. A loss would put the Eagles below .500 and Vick in the red-hot spotlight.
That is why Vick will respond with a big game and the end result will be a blowout victory for the Eagles.
