Vick: I'll Make It Right

Quarterback Michael Vick knows he can't change what happened Sunday against Cleveland.

The important thing in Vick's mind is that he felt the mistakes he made were physical, not mental, and that they can be fixed.

"The good thing about is that we know the mistakes we made. I know the mistakes that I made and I know they can be corrected," Vick said. "You just have to be patient with this game. You can't become impatient. You can't try to press too hard. You can't try to rush things. You've got to let it happen."

Vick was 29-of-56 for 317 yards with two touchdowns against four interceptions for a 51.0 quarterback rating in the Eagles' 17-16 win. However, when the Eagles trailed 16-10 and had the ball with 6:25 remaining Vick made enough plays to help pull out the win.

On the game-winning drive, Vick was 6-of-11 for 55 yards passing and had another 9 yards rushing. The drive culminated with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Vick to tight end Clay Harbor. Overall, the Eagles amounted 456 yards on Sunday, more than any other NFL team in Week 1 except for Washington.

"The positives are the plays that we made and that we can keep making over and over again," Vick said.

Head coach Andy Reid said that Vick was in on Monday to watch film and learn from both the good and the bad as the team prepares for a Ravens team that is known for their defense. Vick does not want to dwell too much on what happened last Sunday because he said he doesn't "plan on having that type of ballgame again."

"I'm the one that's got to deal with it and go out there and make it right," Vick said. "Nobody has to motivate me. I motivate myself. I watched the film. I'm the one who lived it."

Vick said that Sunday was not a fun day. He kept repeating in his post-game press conference that he wanted to get out of Cleveland. Well, this might be as good a time as ever to be getting back to Philadelphia for the home opener.
