Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick says media made him change his game


Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback Michael Vick isn’t one who likes to take accountability that often.

That said, I guess it shouldn’t come as too much of a shock that Vick blames the media for his sub-par play last year.

The veteran NFL quarterback who struggled with injuries said he began reading too much negative press about his style of play, so he decided to change it because the media told him to.

Per Philly.com:

“I think you got to take on a certain mindset that you’re going play the game all out,” Vick said. “If you go into a football game not wanting to get hurt or trying not to get hurt, it doesn’t allow you to play the way you want to play.” Vick injured his head, hand, and ribs last season. He missed five games due to a concussion last season. “You guys act like I get hurt once a week,” Vick said to reporters with a media. “You all did that to me. Made me change the way I played the game.”

Oh. Well, that of course makes sense. The media’s fault. Total sense.

    Who cares what the media says? MIke would be best suited to disregard the media and just work hard and listen to his coaches.
