Michael Vick says he has to accept his role “like a man”

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael VIck was officially benched a couple of weeks ago after suffering a serious concussion.

It was clear that once Vick went down he wouldn’t be starting another game this season.  I think by he knows he won’t be with the Eagles next season as well.

Vick says he has to accept his role as the Eagles’ third string quarterback for the final two games of the season.

“I’m a competitor, and I’ve always felt like and will continue to feel like I’m one of the best and can play at a high level … I want to be out there,” Vick said, via the Philadelphia Daily News. “I want to play, but it’s just not the ideal situation right now. … I have to accept my role, accept it like a man, continue to find positives out of it.”

Vick believes he has plenty of football left.

“I have a lot of football left in me, a lot left in my tank … the future will take care of itself,” Vick said.

I can’t believe that it was just a couple of years ago that Vick and the Eagles blew through the NFL and dominated opposing defenses.

    “I can’t believe that it was just a couple of years ago that Vick and the Eagles blew through the NFL and dominated opposing defenses.”

    Can you provide the stats for the season this happened? I don’t think this ever did.

      Why do you think Eagles signed Vick for a long term deal and traded Kolb to Cardinals? It was because of that season.
