Eagles quarterback Michael Vick denied a report by Yahoo Sports that said he believed some of the Eagles assistant coaches were pushing to have him benched.

Vick did have a meeting with coach Andy Reid, but said after Saturday’s practice, that he never complained about the assistant coaches.

“That is absolutely false,” Vick said. “Coach and I never had that conversation. Everything we talked about in that room is personal, man to man.”

Then for emphasis, Vick added, “That never came up.”

Vick then praised the Eagles coaching staff.

“All my coaches do a great job of getting me prepared, put me in the best position possible and I have nothing but the utmost respect and they know that without me having to say it on camera.”
