Michael Vick: “I became better at reading dogs than reading defenses”BREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
In his upcoming biography, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says his mind was more focused on understanding dogs than understanding his playbook and opposing defenses. It’s quite a statement and surely to be much talked about when the Birds start training camp next Sunday.
“Back when I was involved in those activities, I may have become more dedicated to the deep study of dogs than I was to my Falcons playbook,” an excerpt from “Finally Free,” which he revealed to USA Today, reads. “I became better at reading dogs than reading defenses.”
One of the reasons Vick has written the book is because of all of the despondent people he’s run into, whom he thinks his comeback story might help.
“I run into so many people who feel like they don’t have any hope after they make a mistake, or after they can’t overcome certain obstacles in their life, or they put themselves in a position that is detrimental to their well being,” Vick said. “I just want them to know that there’s several roadblocks you’re going to run into. I did it. … Even though you may fall, you have to get up.”
Vick definitely said the right thing regarding leading the Eagles to a Super Bowl victory..
I have something that I want to give back to everyone that supported me. Here it is: I am committed, focused and determined to win a Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles,” Vick writes. “This is my promise. It is my drive. I will work like a champion to get there. I want to do it for my family, friends, mentors, coaches, teammates, and fans. I want to do it for Philly.”
