I totally agree with Michael Vick

New, comments

In an interview with Bob Costas before last night's game, Michael Vick had this to say about what he wants to be doing next year.

"I won't be a Wildcat guy. I can't," Vick told NBC. "It's a different style of play. It's almost like a hit-or-miss type of thing. My position is quarterback. That's what I was born to do."

I totally agree with the bolded part. It's fairly obvious that Michael Vick can't come in for one or two plays a game and do anything effective. The Vick experiment as it stands now is DOA. I don't really blame Vick per se, since the way he's used gives him very little chance to make a play but then again I'm not sure he's ready to handle much more anyway...

Vick also expressed to Costas that it would be tough to come back to the Eagles next year as a backup/wildcat player.

"It would be hard," Vick said of returning to the Eagles, according to excerpts released by NBC. "It would be an everyday struggle. But I would have to take that time to hone my skills and get better. I'm excited about the opportunity I have moving forward whether it's with Philadelphia or another team."

Basically Vick wants to be a starting QB next year... and you know what? I think the Eagles do too. I think the Eagles wanted that all along. Not starting here, but starting for whatever team offers the most in terms of picks this offseason. Watching the state of QB play around the league this past weekend, there has to be 5 or 6 teams that would be seriously interested in having a guy like Mike Vick as their starting QB. Especially considering that the Eagles have absorbed the brunt of the PR hit for bringing him back.
