Vick doesn't know if he can 'take a hit yet'

The bye week couldn't come at a better time for the Philadelphia Eagles -- DeSean Jackson is working his way back from a concussion and Michael Vick gets an extra week of healing on his ribs to get ready for the stretch run.

And if Jackson's status is indeed "up in the air," he's not the only Eagles star feeling a little tentative -- Vick said on Wednesday that he's not sure how he'll respond to getting popped by a defender.

"I don't know if I can take a hit yet, but I can throw the ball strong," Vick said. "I think I have some more time to heal and some more time to just get stronger, so I'll stay in the weight room and continue to do the things that helped me get to this point."

This might actually be good news for Philly -- Vick was incredibly effective in the pocket when he returned as a starter and while he was still dangerous running, his eagerness to get in the end zone cost him a few weeks when he got popped by a couple of Redskins.

Certainly no one wants him to be tentative while taking snaps, but if Vick isn't as willing to abandon the pass (or, if you prefer, "less willing to take off running"), he's got a better chance to stay healthy, without letting teams really avoid planning against him.

Seriously, Vick is more mature and a better athlete.  He has learned from past experiences and has been doing good so far.  So please stop with the Dog comments, its getting old. 

Let's talk football and keep those comments to yourself!

Will we ever let "dog" comments go?  The guy grew up in that environement, it is cruel for sure, but so is hunting, and I understand what he did was far worse than hunting, but he promises he won't do it again, so can we talk about football now?
