The Giants didn't just beat the Eagles badly on Sunday. (Though they did do that.) They may have also put the Eagles "dream" season at risk, by breaking Michael Vick's right hand and sending him to the bench earlier than he expected.
As I said yesterday, the good news is that Vick's right hand is broken. But it may not matter that much -- Howard Eskin of WIP radio in Philadelphia reported Sunday night that Vick will miss at least three to four weeks because of the hand injury.
That timeline seems logical, but we won't know for sure until Vick undergoes a CT scan on Monday. If he does miss significant time, his ref-blaming quotes from Sunday will reverberate even louder this week.
"I felt I got hit late. No flag," Vick said Sunday. "At some point something catastrophic is gonna happen. Not to blame the refs, but more precautions should be taken. I'm on the ground all the time in the pocket."
Vick's been pressured an average of more than 10 times per game this season, but has received only one roughing the passer call this season.
