Michael Vick’s Plan For Staying Healthy: Training And PrayerBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Thursday, February 14th, 2013
I can’t give you no explanation for that”, Vick told WIP radio in Philly regarding his injury history. “It’s probably one of the toughest questions you’ve asked me since we’ve been talking. I don’t know. I think just to train — train hard and pray to God. That’s gonna be my motto. Hopefully I can sustain 16 games. If I’m out there — go out there and put forth your best effort and see what happens.”
Vick pointed out the astounding number of times he was hit last year, which were sometimes his fault and sometimes the fault of his offensive line.
“We also have to realize, and I think you guys need to take into account that I was hit 170 times last year before I even went down,” Vick said. “That’s the most I ever been hit before I even got hurt. So, I kept getting up. My body was trained and conditioned to go the distance last year, it was just the fact that I got a head injury and that kind of took me out. That was kind of an out of the blue concussion. It just happened.”
I think Vick needs to start using more wisdom in the way he plays. He needs to stop holding the ball so long and learn to throw the ball away. Chip Kelly thinks he can teach it to him, but Vick isn’t a young quarterback any more. We’ll see if he can learn at this age.
Kelly has said in the past that every sack is caused by the quarterback because he should get rid of the football in 1.5 seconds. I can’t wait until they go on the field. This could be interesting.
