Even though he’s been benched for the remainder of the season, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says that he doesn’t believe he’s a back up and that he can still be a starter in the NFL.
“I’m not a backup. Just being honest, just being candid. I’m a full-fledged starter,” said Vick, via Birds 24/7. ” That’s what I’ve got in me, that’s what I provide, that’s what I offer. Whatever happens, wherever I end up, they’re going to get 110 percent. You’re going to get the same thing out of me that you got the last two, three years and that’s 110 percent effort and a guy that’s confident in his abilities to play and win.
“I want to start. Yeah, I’m a starter. I’ll feel that way until I start to feel like I’m becoming a problem on the team.”
I don’t think a lot of people believe Vick is still a starting caliber player in the NFL, but I do. I think there are many teams that could use him. He still has a few years left in him.
