Question of the Day
“They’ve got great skill offensively,” Tomlin said. “They’re a great football team.”
One that looked pretty good during a 13-6 victory over Baltimore last week. Vick led the offense to a touchdown while the defense kept the Ravens out of the end zone. Coach Andy Reid is impressed with how quickly the free agents have assimilated, yet knows his team will get a better barometer of where it’s at when it steps onto Heinz Field.
“You’re playing a Super Bowl team, a Super Bowl caliber team,” Reid said. “(This game) allows you to get good work against the best, and I welcome that.”
Even if some of the best on both teams will be watching from the sideline due to injury. Cornerbacks Ike Taylor and Bryant McFadden are out for Pittsburgh while wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, tackle Winston Justice and defensive tackle Trevor Laws will sit for the Eagles.
Now confidently in command after Kevin Kolb was traded to Arizona, Vick is embracing his role as a leader.
“I think he’s putting pressure on himself to be a better football player,” Reid said. “I think he’s putting pressure on the guys around him to be a better football player and at the same time, rallying them to try to bring out the best in them. I think he’s doing an excellent job of that.”
“Those guys can deal with the limelight and the pressure of calling themselves the ‘Dream Team’ and that’s a lot of pressure, but when you have the guys that they have together, why not?” he said. “They probably have the most exciting quarterback in football, cornerbacks you can play all over the field man-to-man. Why not be excited about that? Why not accept that pressure? As for us, you can’t pay attention to that.
“We’re just going to keep going about our work.”
