Michael Vick Hoping To Pull a Kurt Warner?
Michael Vick is the New York Jets backup quarterback. There’s no doubt about it right now, and there’s unlikely to be any doubt about it for quite some time. Geno Smith is the odds on favorite to start at QB for the Jets out of the gate in 2014, as he should be.
But even though Vick has been saying that there’s no QB competition in New York right now, he still apparently has aspirations to lead his new team to the Super Bowl.
Here’s what Vick told the New York Daily News on Thursday:
“I just feel like I can help any football team, any organization, particularly this football team, get to a Super Bowl. It’s tough at this stage of my career because I still feel like I’m a fairly young player and I can still keep up. People make it seem like I’m getting older and things are not the same. I beg to differ.”
Vick in New York = Kurt Warner in Arizona?
“Kurt was blessed with unbelievable talent and uncanny intelligence. That helped him get to where he was. Most important, the Arizona Cardinals believed in him. People just got to believe in you. They gave him a shot. He got his opportunity and he took advantage of it.”
So if you really break down what he’s saying, it’s not all that crazy. He’s just saying that he believes he still has the skills to take a team to the Super Bowl, and that he’d need the backing of the Jets to get there.
The Vick-Smith situation is not all that different from the Warner-Leinart situation in Arizona. The Cardinals drafted Leinart to be their QB of the future, and shortly into his run Warner took the job from him. That same thing could easily happen in New York this year.
However, Vick doesn’t have any receivers the caliber of Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin at his disposal. That could be a roadblock on his way to the big game.
