Eagles quarterback Michael Vick now says an energy drink is to blame for the way he played last week against the Rams.

He says it made him jittery, made it harder to focus, and ultimately made him take more chances than he should have.

Now I too have had one of these drinks before…. really didn’t affect me too much. Maybe he’s a bit more sensitive.

This week when he plays against Atlanta, the team he spent six years with, I’m sure there will be no need for an extra energy boost.
