My story: How Eagles QB Michael Vick is making sure he’s even-keeled when he returns

This dude, Michael Vick, is ready (Associated Press)

The optimism is palpable with the Eagles. It’s not crazy like last year at this time, but it’s there. The talent is still eye-opening, and the arrivals of first-rounder Fletcher Cox and linebacker DeMeco Ryans only add to that. So, how does the team stay grounded?

They follow the lead of their quarterback, Michael Vick. I mentioned last night on Total Access that Vick plans to spend his summer poring over DVDs of all of his bad plays. He wants to eliminate mistakes, and the way to do that is to understand why he made them.

It’s going to be a football summer,” Vick told me yesterday. “I got my DVDs. Whenever I have time, whenever I’m riding in a car or on the airplane, I’ll make sure I pull it out and look at all the mistakes that I made. Not at all the good that I’ve done. Ya know, I know how to do good. Sometimes you don’t know how to do wrong. So, I’m just trying to limit my mistakes and that’s just trying to get better each and every snap.”
