Michael Vick during a radio interview in June about the Eagles' prospects:
"We just feel like we're in a position to accomplish a lot. That's what we want to do. And I think if you don't shoot for the stars, then what are you in it for? And I think if that's everybody's mind set, then you feel like you can accomplish it and start believing that you can do it. And we feel like we can do that, so we know it's gonna be tough. Nothing's gonna be easy, but I think that just makes us want to work even harder. ... [It's] certainly a much more complete team than I've ever been on. This is the best team that I've been able to play with my entire career. We've just got talent stacked all over the place, so that's one of the main reasons why we feel like we got a good chance at it. Chances like this, teams that are built this way don't come around too often and you've gotta feel blessed that you're in a position to play with a team with so much talent. So I just want to take advantage of it."
Pro Football Talk on Michael Vick and the Eagles in the wake of their 3-3 start, which now includes firing/scapegoating the defensive coordinator:
On Monday, Eagles coach Andy Reid offered tepid support for quarterback Mike Vick and defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. On Tuesday, Reid fired Castillo. Undoubtedly, Mike Vick is next.
So yeah, not really the season the Eagles and their quarterback envisioned.
