Talking Vick complaining about non-calls from refs!

Mike Vick's complaints about NFL officials allowing him to be hit more, and hit later, than other quarterbacks can probably only lead to more woe for him and the Eagles. The men in the striped shirts don't like being accused of playing favorites.

"The refs have to do their job and I'm not blaming the referees by any stretch, so let's not get it twisted here," Vick said. "I'm just saying I think everybody on the field should do their job."

Not sure how it could be twisted any other way. Vick was certainly blaming the officials for the pounding he has taken over the first three weeks. Sunday, for the second week in a row, he had to leave the game with an injury. Last week in Atlanta, it was a concussion. This time, it was a broken right hand.

Vick said "absolutely" when asked if he feels he doesn't get the calls that other elite QBs get.

"I mean, you all see it," Vick said. "There's no reason for me to go into a big dissertation about why I'm not getting the calls. The refs, they have to do their job as well. I even mentioned it in training camp to the refs when we had our little meeting, just for precaution. But hey, I don't know."

Vick broke his hand on a third-quarter pass to Jeremy Maclin. He took the snap and slid over to his right to set up. Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty, a 317-pound behemoth, raced in virtually unblocked as Vick waited for Maclin to get open. Canty hit Vick just after he released the ball.

"I was trying to protect myself," Vick said. "Still, I didn't get a flag and that's pretty much been the story for the last three weeks. I mean, obviously at some point, something catastrophic is going to happen. I broke my hand."
