Michael Vick Breaks Hand, Complains, & Loses 29-16 To Giants

While driving around prior to today’s Giants and Eagles game, sports talk show “experts” claimed New York stood little chance to overcome their NFC East rival.

Apparently, the Giants didn’t see things the same way.

New York buried the Eagles, 29-16, on Sunday during Philly’s home opener and became the second consecutive opponent to knock quarterback Michael Vick out of the game.

Vick suffered a broken right hand. Luckily for the Eagles, being a lefty makes it feasible for a quick return to the field.

Following the game, Vick complained about the lack of calls coming his way. The Eagles quarterback felt as if the Giants hit him late throughout Sundays’s game and it was widely missed by the officials:

If you look at all the replays, I’m on the ground every time and it’s unfortunate for myself and it’s unfortunate for my team. . . . Every time I throw the ball, I’m on the ground, getting hit in the head and I don’t know why.

Vick stated that he wasn’t given the same treatment as the “elite” quarterbacks (for purposes of this post, define elite as Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, and Drew Brees):

I mean, you all see it. 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.

Also, Vick indicated that he wasn’t complaining but just wanted to make people aware of the situation. This sounds like some sort of Phil Jackson-esque pandering to the NFL higher powers for future calls.

The biggest reason Vick remains constantly on his backside is due to the Eagles offensive line. No other excuses are necessary.

  1. Vick deserves everything he’s getting and more! As an acquaintance on FB stated, “Let’s cage him, beat him, electrocute him, drown him, file his teeth down so he can’t defend himself, tie his legs down so he can be raped and tortured, force him to fight to the death while we charge admission and entertain ourselves! That’s exactly the things he did and much more, much worse…” So, really, when you think about it, Karma is being kind.
