Michael Vick Is Excited For The Upcoming SeasonBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News Friday, July 13th, 2012
It’s not how you start, its how you finish. Those were the words written on Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick’s shirt he wore advertising his new clothing line, V7. Vick introduced his clothing line to fans at a Modell’s Sporting Goods in northeast Philadelphia Wednesday afternoon. Serving as more than a marketing moniker, this motto also represents the effort that Vick has put into revamping his image since his incarceration for dog fighting. Along with re-branding himself, Vick is also hoping to give the city of Philadelphia a Super Bowl title along the way.
“It would mean so much for me to give this city what they deserve,” Vick said emphatically. “And that is why I work as hard as I have been working, why my focus is different now, why I am a different person and a different quarterback right now.”
Embarking on his fourth season with the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick is well aware that he and his team are on the hot seat this year. After failing to make the playoffs last season, everyone is expecting big things from the Eagles this year.
“There is definitely a sense of urgency, but it should be that way,” Vick said. “We got the chips lined up the way we want them. If we keep our guys healthy — especially coming off a great spring of minicamps and OTAs — we really have an optimistic feeling about this season. We feel like we have everything in our favor.”
Vick and his teammates are so optimistic about this upcoming season that they’re excited about partaking in the grueling demands of training camp.
“Usually I don’t want to go to camp,” he said. “That part I will admit. But this year, I feel like we’re going to have fun with it. We’re going to really enjoy it and make the most out of it. I’m excited. Like I said, I have never been this excited for a season.”
With a full off-season to finally mesh all of their relatively new parts, I am very confident in the Eagles this year. As long as Vick is healthy, making the playoffs should be guaranteed. In addition to him reinventing himself off the field, what I love most about Vick is his willingness to not only acknowledge the high expectations of the City of Brotherly Love, but to embrace them. “I don’t think I could have landed in a better city.”
