The Eagles vehemently denied an accusation that they are not being 100% truthful about the results of Vick’s (failed) concussion tests.
But Ed Werder, who reported that Michael Vick believes the Eagles are playing politics with his concussion in the name of getting Nick Foles more snaps, stands by his story. He spoke with Mike Gill on 97.3 ESPN in South Jersey today and said the following:
“When [he wasn’t cleared to play], he began to tell people that he was wondering if it had more to do with the fact that the Eagles wanted to evaluate Foles for the rest of the season and weren’t being honest with [him], who wants to play, who has to repair his own reputation.”
“All I can tell you is that I didn’t make this up. Michael Vick has told people that he questions whether there's an ulterior motive here or whether this decision not to play in a game is strictly based on his inability to pass the concussion tests. There’s a specific protocol that has to be followed, he hasn’t met it… but that doesn’t mean that Michael Vick doesn’t question whether this is a legitimate reason that he’s not being allowed to play in the game.”
There’s no doubt that the Eagles are not fudging the results of Vick’s tests, because concussion test results go through the league and, apparently, get sent to that shit hole known as Pittsburgh.
Sources close to Vick told Philly Mag’s Tim McManus that not only is Werder’s report inaccurate, but also that Vick is not regressing as had been previously reported.
Vick, of course, had someone write a statement for him, and it’s all fluffy:
“I want to thank my fans for the thousands of well wishes. I also appreciate the support of the entire Eagles organization. I feel strong and healthy. As a professional athlete, I want to play in every game but the NFL has a specific protocol to protect players. My focus is to complete this process successfully, so I can rejoin my team on the field.”
Anyway, as is usually the case, the truth is probably somewhere in middle– Vick is likely frustrated because he feels good but hasn’t passed the concussion test. I’m guessing Werder’s source on this is Rob Vito, the president of Unequal, the local company that makes the rib protection Vick wears and the helmet padding he will be wearing when he returns. Vito allowed Werder to hit him in the chest with a shovel on Monday Night Football a few years back to demonstrate the strength of Unequal’s products. And this week, it was Werder who had the report that Unequal was outfitting Vick with special padding in his helmet. Vito seems to be a go-to for Werder, who otherwise doesn't cover the Eagles on a daily basis. So it would make sense if it was Vito to whom Vick told he felt the Eagles were playing politics, and Vito who then passed that along to Werder. But that’s just my educated guess (I pay myself big bucks for this totally useless shit).
Whatever the case, the Eagles are not fudging the results of Vick’s concussion tests, as is the insinuation by Vick via Werder’s report. Whether or not Vick feels that way, however, is a different story.

I dont know why they just dont say they want to evaluate Foles … who gives a shit. They owe Vick nothing.
Yes I used the wrong YOUR … blow me
@MVFive is letting me down so far today, no stupid tweets yet besides something about diving into his girl’s gigantic ass
When you’re concussed, you should not be allowed to even have a personal opinion nor open your mouth. It’s like a drunk person being around a bunch of sober people. Shut your fucking yapper because your fucked up in the head and your opinion is worth a pile of shit
i’ll shut your mothers yapper with this leatherbound nightstick
So the Eagles are saying they’re not fixing the tests of their inaccurate slow-eyed quarterback who would set the NFL record for turnovers if he could stay healthy. And Werder stands by his story.
Why are these two things considered contradictory? We all know Vick isn’t very smart.
Yo, that’s a fake ass Dennis, I’m the real Dennis you fucking cunt
You white motherfuckers are all the same even stealing my name now fuck you imposter dennis
NEVER TRUST A NO GOOD FILTHY JEW LIKE ED WERDER! I hope he chokes on his gahagafaga at dinner tonight and wolves rape his corpse and then eat it. The Jew always tries to tarnish good Christian names like Mike Vick. Fuck it.
Dennis, you big lipped beast, go drink bleach. While you’re doing that, I hope RHEA HUGHES will be sticking soggy carrots in the cunt of every woman in your life.

SAMPSON SIMPSON…i stand by mah story!
He plays like a brain dead jackass without the concussion. Maybe having one will help him read a defense or hold onto the football.
Angelo Go fuck yourself with that Gigantic head of yours. You are a whiny bitch. I hope Eskin’s cock get jammed down your throat and you choke on his fur coat and die.
Ed Werder reports Vick traded to KC for a dead linebacker to be named later
heskin, congrats on having posted the most classless and most insensitive comment ever written on any of these message boards. you truly are a piece of shit for having posted that! the fact that you would find any humor whatsoever in a murder-suicide tells us how fucked up your mindset truly is. crawl back into the septic tank you awful piece of shit!
fuck you informed that shit was hilarious
It was funny
AFTER ALL the Eagles did for Vick, bringing him in straight from prison and giving him all $$$ and support of coaches, this is how the little shit repays them?
Questions their handling of him? Pretty much calls them liars?
What a fucking dog-killing sack of shit ghetto thug. Release this fukcing loser already
Informed- I lol’d at that comment.
Hopefully we won’t be getting another fluff article slathered in faggotry about uniforms today
Eagles win tonight
The real Vick keeps emerging bit by bit. He is a sociopathic sleazebag. No one else wanted him, the team paid him enough to get him out of debt and gave him another chance. What a piece of crap he is. I can’t imagine anyone else would want him.
he never really played well. In fact he lost a few games for the eagles all by himself. Foles is alot slower than him and he don’t get hit like vic.. go figure
