Michael Vick has taken shots to the helmet, been speared and had his facemask grabbed without seeing a yellow flag.

The Philadelphia Eagles aren't happy about it.

Vick, coach Andy Reid and teammates have all taken turns expressing concern that other teams aren't being penalized for what they perceive to be illegal hits.

Earlier this week, Vick made it clear he doesn't think he's being treated the same as other quarterbacks. He said only once this season has an opponent been penalized for a late hit against him. That was against Detroit in Week 2.
