Michael Vick knew the opportunities were there and knew the Eagles did not capitalize.

“We just beat ourselves,” he said. “Plays that we can make, we just didn’t make them. When we go back and watch the film, we will see so many opportunities we had. We just need to get better, starting with me.”

The Eagles lost for the first time in a game that Vick started and finished.

“It’s always tough when you lose,” he said. “I hate to lose. It makes me sick. It makes me ill, but you’re not going to win every game.”

On how he feels physically, “After this game, I felt better than I have after the last three. We have to go back and correct the small things. We have a short week so we have to go back and forget about this one.”

On the Bears’ defense: “They did a great job with their scheme. I felt like we had our opportunities and didn’t take advantage of it. The turning point of the game was the turnover on the 2-yard line. We make that play, it’s a different ballgame … We definitely have to play better, starting with me.”

More on the interception: “That interception was just deflating as a team … When you have an interception, it just changes the momentum of the game.”
