Eagles | Teammate defends Michael Vick

Although Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick has received much of the criticism for the team's struggles this season, one unnamed defensive player said the quarterback is not issue. "Mike ain't the problem," the player said. "Look, we all know he's struggling. That ain't some secret. But we're not helping him and that's the problem. The defense isn't helping him, the offensive line isn't helping him. None of us. We all gotta help each other and that's what we talked about." The player went on to say that if head coach Andy Reid had benched Vick, it would have reflected badly on the coach just two weeks after he dismissed defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. "This ain't time to be throwing people to the street. We already had that with (Castillo's firing) and that didn't work," the played added.
