Keeping Vick Means A ‘Wasted Season’ For The Eagles
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Ray Didinger has never hid the fact that he believes that the best chance for an NFL team to win the Super Bowl is with a classic, pocket quarterback.
That’s not Michael Vick. Didinger says the decision the Eagles made to keep Vick is one that might be tough for the team to recover from.
“I think you are wasting a season,” Didinger told Angelo Cataldi and The 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday. The Eagles re-signed Vick to a restructured deal, essentially for one year.
“Even if you don’t have your other issues with Michael Vick and his past and everything, it just doesn’t make… I mean this organization for the last two years has been heading in the wrong direction,” Didinger said. “And you’ve taken steps towards rectifying that, and cleaning the past out and getting a fresh start. I mean, getting rid of Joe Banner, getting rid of Andy Reid, Marty Mornhinweg, the whole coaching staff. If you’re turning the page, turn the page all the way and Michael Vick is as big a part of the problem as anyone.”
