Mike Vick Is Not Happy with the Refs

Despite all the negativity yesterday -- you should have heard the soapbox that is the Lincoln Financial Field men's room with two minutes left in the game -- Mike Vick showing his anger following the game was a welcomed display of emotion. Too frequently this Birds team is robotic and doesn't lash out and say what you want to hear. After the game, Vick was angry and let it be known he wasn't happy with the refs allowing defenders to beat him up in the pocket.

Sunday’s home-opener loss to the Giants was awful. Not only did they fall to the hated New York Giants, the Eagles also lost Mike Vick for 3-4 weeks with a broken non-throwing hand.

After the game, Vick was angry and let it be known he wasn’t happy with the refs allowing defenders to beat him up in the pocket.

Mike Vick’s angry:

From Reuben Frank’s article on Vick wondering where the flags are:

“I felt like I got hit late,” Vick said. “No flag. Broke my hand. That’s it. Trying to protect myself. Didn’t get a flag. And that’s pretty much been the story for the last three weeks. Obviously, at some point, something catastrophic is going to happen, and I broke my hand.”

“Everybody saw the game,” Vick said. “I’m on the ground constantly. All the time. Every time I throw the ball, in all my highlights and just watching film in general, every time I throw the ball, I’m on the ground, getting hit in the head, and I don’t know why I don’t get the 15-yard flags like everybody else does.

It’s almost an indictment of his offensive line as much as it is of the refs though, isn’t it?
