Eagles Breakdown Monday Night's Game Against the Saints
How tough or how easy was it to go with Michael Vick as the starting quarterback for another week?
“I never switched it, that’s just how it was perceived. He is our starting, he has been our starting quarterback and will continue to be our starting quarterback.”
Were you surprised that Michael Vick came out last week and hinted at the possibility of being replaced?
“They asked him a question based on one of my questions and answers. That’s how he answered it. I wasn’t worried about the way he answered it. He actually did it respectful to the team and me and the whole deal. That’s not where I was at. We talk every day so it was important. He knew after that, after we talked.”
Were you encouraged by not having turnovers there last week?
“I thought he did a nice job of managing the game, yes.”
When you look at the Saints, do you get a sense of what their problems are?
“Listen, I’ve got a lot of respect for their defensive coordinator. I think you guys know that. They’ve got a lot of good players on that defense. Just like we are, they’re trying to work things out. Who am I to say anything?”
Do you believe that both teams have their backs against the wall? Are both teams desperate?
“I think you could probably ask that to the Atlanta Falcons every week. They’re an undefeated football team and they’d tell you the same thing. That’s how you operate in this league, you prepare yourself to win the game. That’s how you go about your business. If you ask the teams that are struggling or if you ask the teams that are doing well, I think they’re probably going to give you the same answer.”
Do you feel like you are coaching for your job?
“I don’t even go there. What I try to do is I try to control the things that I can control and that is trying to get my football team better.”
