Speaking to reporters about Andy Reid’s firing and other post-mortem things, Vick ripped the Eagles for their lack of effort. Again.
Other than feeling sorry for “Coach,” with whom Vick said he had a “personal relationship,” QB 7 ripped teammates: “It’s evident (the lack of effort). I won’t continue to talk about the same things over and over again. It’s just lack of effort, I’ll say it again.”
More nuggets from Vick, via the best young Eagles beat reporter out there, Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardo975):
“We wouldn’t be in this situation if guys tried as hard as I did. This locker room never dictated that kind of effort.”
“Out of respect, you should want to come to work, want to try and be the best. To follow the leader. That’s what people need to learn.”
“I tried to take a modest approach, lead by example, and called a team meeting for guys to regroup. They didn’t listen.”
“I’m not going to tell a grown man how to conduct himself.”
Yeah, this era ended badly, as most do.
