Several Eagles players said Monday that a lack of effort, leadership, and chemistry in the locker room contributed to the team's worst season since 1998. Players hinted at the problems at times during the year, but they were more outspoken Monday.
When quarterback Michael Vick was asked whether it bothered him that players did not play as hard as he did, he did not hold back.
"Yes, it does," Vick told reporters. "I give 110 percent effort. Body scarred up all year, hurt, bruised, get up after every hit and still keep trying to fight and push. I do that for my coaches, I do that for my teammates. And I'd expect the same thing in return."
