On Sunday night, Tony Dungy mentioned Buffalo as a possible “dark horse” to retain the services of Michael Vick in 2010. What’s clear is that Vick is unlikely to stay in Philadelphia, and it sounds like that’s just fine with him.
“It would be hard,” Vick said of returning to the Eagles in a conversation with Bob Costas. “It would be an everyday struggle. But I
would have to take that time to hone my skills and get better. I’m
excited about the opportunity I have moving forward whether it’s with
Philadelphia or another team.”
Vick thinks he has more to offer than just being a Wildcat quarterback — he only played two snaps Sunday night in Philadelphia’s loss to Dallas.
“I won’t be a Wildcat guy. I can’t,” Vick said, speaking about his future. “It’s a different
style of play. It’s almost like a hit-or-miss type of thing. My
position is quarterback. That’s what I was born to do.”
Approached after the game by the Associated Press, Vick wisely didn’t discuss his future. It can only serve as a distraction right now. But as we wrote last night, Vick’s lack of explosiveness in the present is not going to help his chances of getting a job or Philadelphia’s chances of getting decent trade offers.
Even Vick admits to having doubts about his ability.
“I would be lying if I said there wasn’t some doubt there. I’m being realistic about the situation,” Vick said.
