Asked today if he feels he is 100 percent with the quad injury he suffered last week against the Vikings, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said he is "getting there."

Vick, who will lead the Eagles against Green Bay Sunday at the Linc in a wild-card-round playoff game, said handling the blitz "is not an issue," that he is learning as he goes. Vick said he does not need to adjust to the way teams are playing him, even though the Eagles' offense has sputtered in recent weeks.

"I don't have to do nuttin'. I'm still going to be me. I'm still going to play my game, still play with confidence, still try to rally the guys around me, and make sure they're focused and in tune with what we're doing, what we're trying to accomplish," Vick said. "That's what's important. You can't change your game around this time of the season ... You just go out and play your best football. It's the playoffs."

Asked about the fact that the offense's best work lately came in the final eight minutes of the Giants game, in which it was otherwise ineffective, Vick said: "As long as you find a way to win at some point, that's all that matters. It's doesn't matter what happened in three quarters. I you pull it out and you win, enough said."

Vick said his playoff experience as an Atlanta Falcon was so long ago, it has no bearing on this situation.

Earlier, Eagles coach Andy Reid said guard Max Jean-Gilles' left ankle injury didn't seem too serious. He said it would be a stretch for middle linebacker Stewart Bradley (elbow) to return this week.
