VIDEO: Late Hit On Michael Vick By Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer

Early in the second quarter of Sunday Night Football, Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick attempted to dart out of bounds after scrambling from the pocket. Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer clearly preferred Vick dart a slightly greater distance, heaving Vick towards Philly's bench and almost getting him there.

The strongest argument you've seen in quite a while against the modern NFL fan's put-a-skirt-on-'em objections to quarterback safety rules: this play wasn't even flagged. Late hit? Unnecessary roughness? Nothing:

Via the sensational @bubbaprog.

Eagles coach Andy Reid has been complaining recently about referees allowing defenders to take more shots at Vick than at other players, let alone other quarterbacks. If this is the kind of thing defensive players are allowed to do to Vick, Reid might have a pretty good point. 

Vick rallied to lead Philly on a touchdown drive and has 130 total yards late in the first half.
