Based on recent reports, Michael Vick needs better friends. Turns out he might not have a better friend than the new Eagles starting quarterback — Kevin Kolb.
Kolb threw his support behind Vick, telling the Philadelphia Inquirer that he loves Vick and the two are close friends. Kolb said that he is disappointed that Vick’s name has been dragged through the mud recently, and that people do not know the real Vick.
- “I just told him that it was unfortunate what he had to go through,” the Eagles’ new starting QB said recently. “I just said, ‘If there’s anything I can do, whatever it is I don’t care, just holler.’ And, of course, he said, ‘I appreciate it.’” …
- “I think people misunderstand Michael a little bit,” Kolb said. “They don’t understand how good of a guy he is. But I think [Eagles players and coaches] all see that. I just hate – and this is what he’s upset about – that he got his name [dragged] back through the mud. For an outsider looking in … they don’t even know what the story is. They’re just seeing something negative with his name and it looks bad.”
Jason LaCanfora reported on Monday that the Eagles front office also supports Michael Vick.
