Eagles quarterback Michael Vick brushed off Rob Ryan’s “all-hype” and “beat their a - - ” comments as the result of competitiveness.
“We know it’s a competitive game,” he said. “Sometimes people say things that they regret days, weeks or months later. I think from a competitive standpoint, he was just talking. It was nothing that we really paid any attention to, because we know what really counts is when you step onto the football field and whoever wins or loses the game. That’s what matters.”
Ryan, the Cowboys’ new defensive coordinator, referred in training camp to the “all-hype team” that was getting all the attention in the summer and that it was OK with him, that his team would “beat their a - - ” anyway.
Vick said the Cowboys and Eagles have a good rivalry.
“This rivalry is always going to be big,” he said. “It’s just a game that everybody likes to see, a game that I think both teams love to participate in. This is another excellent opportunity to go out in front of the world and show that we’re capable of getting it done.”
