“Right now we’re with Michael. We’ll evaluate it as we go” – Andy Reid.
“Michael is our quarterback. Period. Michael is our quarterback” - Andy Reid.
Poor Andy. Stuck between a rock & a hard place yet again with the quarterback position, this time with Michael Vick. Seems like a running theme with this fat bastard, first with McNabb & then Kevin Kolb. And I don’t think there’s an easy decision to make. Live or die with your former Pro-Bowl QB who’s sporting a turnover-to-TD ratio of over 2:1, but did pull out a pair of last minute wins? Or decide not to push your luck & hand the keys over to your rookie backup? Well, don’t sweat it, Andy. The Giants are coming to town to help you out.
Vick has been hit 28 times (most in the NFL), lost 9 footballs & taken 9 sacks – a majority of this coming against Cleveland & Arizona. Defenses on the rise? Maybe, but they’re not Big Blue coming off 3 picks & 2 sacks of Cam Newton on his home turf. It’s not gonna take long for Philly fans to turn on Vick like they did Santa Claus when JPP is driving him through the mid-field eagle like Rampage Jackson & the G-Men are taking a TO the other way. Perhaps a trip to Pittsburgh isn’t the best time to throw Nick Foles into the huddle, but once the Giants are done snapping Vick in half, it’ll be the only option. Last year was his hand, this year it’ll be his spine – and if he thinks the legit refs didn’t throw as many flags as they should’ve, just wait. These replacement refs don’t give a fuck. You gotta lose a piece of your ear before they’re throwing anything.
LeSean McCoy’s doing his part to help Andy, too, firing up Osi on his quarterback hunt:
“Yeah this is for real, like I don’t like Osi!” McCoy says, according to an ESPN E:60 press release. “I don’t know how he feels, he might think it’s a game but I don’t play them type of games so every time on the field I would say stuff to him like you is a bum…you are the 3rd best defensive lineman on the defense, which I didn’t lie. Wait, I did lie, he’s the 4th now so I actually did lie…I think he thinks he’s better than what he really is. I think he’s a ballerina in a Giants uniform, but other than that that’s all I gotta say about Osi.”
