Eagles QB Michael Vick was asked today whether he thought this weekend’s matchup with the Indianapolis Colts was a “statement game.”
“I think so. This is a big game for us. We know the magnitude of it; we know what it can do for us, as far as our confidence moving forward. This is what this game is all about. Two good teams going up playing head-to-head football and you’ve got great players on both sides of the ball, and two great teams, so it’s going to be exciting.”
Vick reiterated that he has no restriction of movement and is 100% recovered by the rib injury which kept him out for the past month. He also says he relishes the chance to face a guy like Peyton Manning.
“By us being in the NFC, you won’t have this opportunity unless you meet him again in the Super Bowl, so it’s great to be playing against one of the great ones, and like I said, that’s what this game is all about. And we’re not doing anything that hasn’t been done before with all of the great ones that came before us.”
