Veteran defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins did something to draw the ire of Eagles head coach Andy Reid, and cameras caught the heated exchange on television during the second quarter of tonight’s preseason game against the Patriots.
“It’s an emotional game,” Reid said afterwards. “He was fired up. I was fired up. Those things happen. Cullen is my primary leader on that defensive line so I count on him for a lot of things. He was upset, and I was upset. We talked about it afterwards, and we’re ok.”
The Eagles quarterback answers reporters’ questions coming off the practice field or at his locker whenever he’s at the Novacare Complex.
But it’s still noteworthy when Vick goes national and is featured on a network like ESPN because it puts the spotlight on him around the country. That can be a bad thing if he isn’t careful about what he says (see: dynasty). But as he continues to work to reshape his image, it can also be a good thing.
