NBC-10 aired a taping today of MIchael Vick being interviewed by John Clark and Vick has something interesting things to say. One item which stuck out was the fact that Vick says he didn’t want to come to Philadelphia originally because he knew he was going to have to sit behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb.
“I didn’t want to come here to be honest with you,” Vick said. “I knew I was going to be behind Donovan and Kevin, and I wanted to play. I just didn’t see myself playing a heavy role in the offense.
“After awhile, I said to myself, you know what, it’s just a blessing to have a team want me right now. Got the opportunity, and last year, everybody kind of grew on me.”
Vick said he’s got plenty of room for improvement. Clarke asked him what percentage of his ability he was played at while in Atlanta.
“65% in Atlanta, 85% here this year, going for 95% to 100% next year,” Vick said. “I think next year will definitely be the year. That’s the only thing I can think about now. It’s funny because two years ago, I never envisioned myself being in this position. Four days after the playoff game, I’m thinking about next year.”
Vick said he has already talked to Coach Reid about what he needs to improve on in order to take his career to the next level. It probably had something to do with pre-snap reads, recognizing the blitz and making the proper adjustments at the line of scrimmage.
He said he wants to return to Philadelphia and believes this is the best situation for him to play his best football. Vick continues to rave about how much Andy Reid and his staff helped him improve as a quarterback.
Absolutely,” was Vick’s response to Philadelphia being the best place for him to play. Vick continued with, “I know we’re only going to get better as a team. I would love to stay here, love to be here, and I think this team gives me the best chance of winning a Super Bowl.
As you can see Vick wouldn’t guarantee that he would be back here with the Eagles. Still while saying that he wouldn’t guarantee that he would sign with the Eagles.was interviewed.
