Mike Vick: “I’m not a Backup QB, I’m a Full Fledged Starter”

I tend to agree with Vick. As I look around the league and compare it to his body of work in Philadelphia he should be able to find a starting position.

His main problem is more about health than ability. He isn’t the Mike Vick of old, but he is a better quarterback than he was before he went to prison.

Here is what Vick had to say courtesy of CBS Sports.

“I’m not a backup. Just being honest, just being candid. I’m a full-fledged starter,” Vick told Tim McManus of Birds 24/7. “That’s what I’ve got in me, that’s what I provide, that’s what I offer.

“I want to start. Yeah, I’m a starter. I’ll feel that way until I start to feel like I’m becoming a problem on the team.”

“I just feel like I have made so many strides as far as learning the defensive part of the game and kind of piecing it together with the offense. I feel like over the last two years I’ve kind of gotten better in the protection game and learning defensive schemes,” he said.

“I’ve got prime left, man. I’m just getting started.”

I don’t know if I would go as far as saying he is in his prime, but I do think he gets one more opportunity to start somewhere.
