Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Reid’s stance on the matter, but Reid is just forcing the other team to prepare for both Vick and Vince Young.
Reid has been the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles since 1999. Vick is an athlete who badly wants to get in the game regardless of any injury he’s sustained. By keeping Vick out of the game, Reid is doing his team a favor.
Who should the Eagles start on Sunday?
Why do you think he’s still the head coach despite not winning a title?
Last year, Vick played like a player with a second chance. Vick realizes what he has to do to turn around the team
However, new players, compiling losses and high expectations have caused Vick to try and force greatness rather than just allowing it to happen. It’s very typical of the Eagles to pick it up at about midseason.
They did it in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
Sitting Vick and letting him heal would be best for the Eagles moving forward.
