Michael Vick said there's a "100 percent" chance he starts!

PHILADELPHIA -- A badly bruised hand isn't going to keep Michael Vick off the field. Vick practiced Wednesday and said there's a "100 percent" chance he starts when the Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) host San Francisco (2-1) on Sunday. The star quarterback was initially diagnosed with a broken, non-throwing hand after getting hurt in a 29-16 loss to the New York Giants three days ago. But tests on Monday revealed he had a contusion on his right hand.

Vick again apologized for criticizing the officials and saying he takes too many late hits without getting the benefit of a roughing-the-passer penalty."My kids were killing me about that. That was a good one," Vick said. "I guess when you sit on the...
podium and you make excuses like that, then you're going to be labeled a crybaby, so maybe I did deserve it." "I think I was frustrated because I got hit late and I hurt my hand on that play and I couldn't finish the game because of that," Vick said. "That was one of the reasons I was frustrated. I don't want any special treatment. All I want to do is go out and play my game. If they feel there's a need to make a call, then they'll make it. If not, then I won't say anything about it. "Though still early, Vick and the Eagles find themselves in last place in the NFC East, as the Giants, Redskins and Cowboys are all 2-1.
