People close to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick understand that the team will stick with QB Nick Foles even after Vick's injury has passed. Vick is 33 years old. After being asked if he still saw himself as the starter, Vick stated, "I don't know. That's not something that I'm thinking about at this point. The last thing I want to be is a distraction to the team. I'm just working hard to get myself healthy." When pressed on the question, he continued, "I do see myself as a starter, but if Coach has a viable explanation or good reason for why it should be anything different, I've got to understand that. He's the coach, I'm the player."
Vick had a great run and while it's not over, it may be over for him in Philly. Nobody really expected him to come back to the game after his prison stay or to have the impact he did. It'll be interesting to see what kind of legacy Vick will have into the future and what he'll be remembered for. Personally, as a VT alum, Vick is one of my favorite players of all time. He changed Virginia Tech for the better and brought the school into the national spotlight. He brought backyard football to the NFL and changed the quarterback position forever. That's just my opinion though and I'm aware many people will see it in differing ways. I'll root for Vick no matter where he goes or what he decides to do after this season. Foles is a must-own and he's playing at a very high level.
