Michael Vick looks forward to mentoring Vince Young

Michael Vick AP

You know times have changed when you hear Michael Vick talking about being the trusty old veteran who’s looking forward to showing a young player the ropes. But that’s the role Vick hopes to play now that Vince Young is about to become his backup quarterback in Philadelphia.

“Looking forward to working with him,” Vick said of Young, via CSNPhilly.com. “We’ll spend a lot of time getting to know one another. It’s cool – I look forward to having him in here, look forward to making him a better player.”

Young could certainly learn a thing or two from Vick: Vick has figured out how to become a reliable passer in addition to having other-worldly running ability, and Vick has become a student of the game and team leader rather than a guy who thinks his natural talent means he doesn’t need to work hard.

Vick also said he hopes to teach Young that you have to shrug it off if the fans get on you.

“We all have problems with booing,” Vick said. “We all hate getting booed. It’s just part of the game. You’ve got to take the bad with the good. As much praise as you get, you might get scrutinized and criticized, but I think that only makes you better as a person and as a player, and you just have to keep going.”

Sounds like Young will have a good mentor in Philadelphia.

    Two words: Uh Oh

    sounds like vick just admitted he’s a down low brother too. good for you. come out of the closet. maybe the anger will go away, and you won’t feel the need to strangle dogs.

    VY probably grew up idolizing Vick. Now, with his career in shambles, Young has the perfect mentor and the perfect situation. This is a great signing.

  4. offsideburns says: Jul 29, 2011 11:54 AM

    Vick seems to just say everything right these days.

  5. junobeach44 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:00 PM

    Andy Reid and Mike Vick are just what VY needs to turn it around provided he does his part.

    Vick: “I’ll treat him like one of my pups”

  7. irishgary says: Jul 29, 2011 12:01 PM

    someone really needs to tell Vick to just shut up

    Polish a turd all you want, it’s still a turd at the end of the day.

  9. pioniere says: Jul 29, 2011 12:01 PM

    The Eagles will push Young’s value back up, and then trade him for another bounty like they have with so many other QBs (Feely, McNabb, Kolb).

  10. trojanmaaaan says: Jul 29, 2011 12:02 PM

    Hopefully Young doesn’t mind that Vick has herpes.

  11. nflofficeadmin says: Jul 29, 2011 12:03 PM

    Vick sounds good.. but i’m sure Philly will eventually get the best of him.. they always find a way to sabotage their own team.

  12. nflofficeadmin says: Jul 29, 2011 12:05 PM

    Not sure how long VY’s ego will allow him to be a back up and have Vick talk about him like a sick patient… even though his career is on life support..

  13. drbob117 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:05 PM

    I’m amazed at the number of folks who want Jeff Fisher to skate free and clear of any of the blame. So here are the facts: Over the past 2 seasons , when VY had started, the Titans were 12-6; 8-2 in ’09 and 4-4 last year. The Titans went 8-8 in ’09; and 6-10 last year. Thats 14-18; so they went 2-12 when VY didn’t start.That means that as a fan, if you showed up at LP Field the last couple of years, and someone told you VY wasn’t going to play, you might as well have turned around, gone back to your car, and driven home. Those two wins were what Eagles fans will remember as the “Kenny Britt game”( I am so happy they fired Sean McDermott); and the last , meaningless game of last season. I’m glad Fisher had such a great relationship with Kerry Collins and Rusty Smith because they got him fired; not VY.

  14. tntitansfan10 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:07 PM

    I liked Vy in TN, he is just immature. Will play and might win a super bowl someday

  15. azcardsfan1 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:08 PM

    I think this is a very solid pickup. VY is a good QB, not great, but he is still young. Same playing style as Vick, so WHEN Vick goes down for a game or two VY should be able to step in and fill the shoes without much of a hiccup.

  16. orakpownd says: Jul 29, 2011 12:13 PM

    I can only imagine the amount of class that will be oozing from their scholarly interactions.

  17. derekjetersmansion says: Jul 29, 2011 12:14 PM

    I think the chances of VY being the starter in Philly next year are high. He’s younger and less reckless on the field.

    I just don’t think you should give Vick more than 2 years in a contract because of his playing style.

    In fact, trading Vick would have gotten more of a return than Kolb did.

    Vick is a disingenuous POS. Another sociopath trait is to fool people into thinking nothing is wrong with you which based upon his past behavior, we all know isn’t true. No one is a bigger liar (well documented) & more full of it than Vick.

    Unless it’s Filthadelphia fans…they cheer when an opposing player is motionless on the field, they intentionally throw up on other fans kids, they have a QB that took them to 5 championship games & a SB & they couldn’t wait to get him out of town, they rip up players that used to play in Philly when they are released like Andrews, calling him crazy now. But the NFL’s sickest fans give a standing ovation to an ex-con, known repeated animal torturer that has no regards for women that has been over rated his whole career. If Vick went to another team tomorrow, they would be screaming how he never changed & what a sick guy he is. Hell, the same people that have been praising Reid the last few days are the same fans calling for his head the last few years. So typical though, but listen to them tell us how LOYAL they are.

  20. touchdownroddywhite says: Jul 29, 2011 12:16 PM

    Vick should be able to get through to Young. Young can’t give him the “you can’t possibly understand” excuse when Vick reaches out, and Young should be able to recognize if he can learn now what took Vick a while longer to learn, he may be able to string together an impressive conclusion to his lackluster career.

  21. mgborgli says: Jul 29, 2011 12:18 PM

    Anybody else think Andy is going to find a way to get both Vick and young on the field, an oppsing team will have to respect both of their speed and their arm while also trying to stop D jackson

  22. NFLJunkie says: Jul 29, 2011 12:21 PM

    Young idolized Steve McNair growing up too, and has often talked about Donovan McNabb being a guy he relied on for advice/mentoring. Both of whom know a thing or two about fickle fans (McNair had it tougher earlier in his career than he deserved).

    Then Young spent the last few years in the same locker room with a former first round QB who nearly burned his career down before resurrecting it and taking another team to a Super Bowl.

    Maybe Vick can finally get through to him and Young will finally drop the “can’t nobody tell me nothing” attitude. I’ve given up waiting on that, though. Good luck, Philly fans!

  23. tjg25 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:28 PM

    Andy Reid is a great father figure for well someone other than his own kids I guess. So does Vick end up a suicidal dog murderer now? VY ends up killing dogs then threatens to kill himself? They both turn into drug dealers under Reid’s “parenting”? This could go so many great directions!

  24. ampking101 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:28 PM

    I never thought I would forgive Vick for what he put us (the Falcons) through. We ended up with Matt Ryan (who was a better fit for Atlanta) and Vick actually was able to turn things around and become the QB nobody ever thought he would be. I’m glad that he’s changed his attitude and that he’s become more of a team player. You only get one second chance and he has used that second chance very wisely. People will hate but this guy took a bad situation and some dumb choices and worked to make it better.

    By the way, I love dogs and I know I’m going to get a lot of thumbs down for this. What he did was messed up and uncalled for yes but they were animals. He wasn’t going out and hurting people like a lot of other NFL stars have done and then been embraced back with open arms. Just saying.

    there’s a two big differences between Vick and VY
    -Vick is far more athletically gifted
    -VY isnt smart enough and gets confused against top defenses

  28. theblowtorchreview says: Jul 29, 2011 12:43 PM

    One thing is for sure…….they have Vick towing the party line these days. He has been coached to say all the right things.

    You gots to do what you gots to do! (especially when you have creditors all over you for past debts)

    @vickspreadsherpes:

    “But the NFL’s sickest fans give a standing ovation to an ex-con, known repeated animal torturer that has no regards for women that has been over rated his whole career.”

    And the Steelers fans continue to cheer for Roethlisberger.

    And Ravens fans continue to adore Ray Lewis.

    I’m sure most of the players in the NFL are all choir boys, too.

    Switch to decaf and settle down.

  30. imopen7 says: Jul 29, 2011 12:45 PM

    who said he can teach?
    who said vy can learn?
    i thought vick and favre we’re gonna hang out…take pics, play with the dogs, etc? this ruins everything!!!
    que a new team for brett to waffle with

  31. raidaz says: Jul 29, 2011 12:47 PM

    Michael Vick a mentor for Vince Young?LMAO!!

  32. echoparkla says: Jul 29, 2011 12:47 PM

    this is a stellar pickup for Philly and an awful move by VY’s camp. Its actually amazing some of the scrubs that will be starting for NFL teams this season over a guy with a 30-17 record.

    The other amazing notion is that Vick will be mentoring VY. Anyone who has actually followed Youngs career understands that his behavior has been blown out of proportion by the media and a coach who aired his locker room disputes to the press.

    Vince Young is about as badly behaved as Jay Cutler was in Denver… he’s got a big head, wants to be given things without the best work ethic and then whines, yes (sounds like an NFL player). All true. Yet here we are discussing that Vick will be a good fit to mentor Young? Why? What makes anyone think that Vick has turned a corner or is a good person now. Oh, he got back on the field and played well, he must be a better person if he can do that. Maybe Vick can learn a thing or two from Young… Maybe Young can teach Vick how to stay out of prison. Maybe Young can teach Vick how to avoid possible murder wraps.

  33. theytukrjobs says: Jul 29, 2011 12:50 PM

    Andy Reid’s offensive system is good for VY. It is good for QB’s that aren’t super intelligent, but are great athletes.

    Basically the plays usually have two parts. You make a simple read and deliver a football. If that isn’t there, you run around and improvise. You don’t have to be a cerebral QB to run his system.

    I think that’s why a lot of Andy Reid’s QB’s do really well there, then get traded for a bounty and absolutely suck in someone else’s system.

    1. I can sit here all day and name disgusting acts that other fanbases have committed (Dodgers fan’s life-threatening beating of Stow, all the tales of Raiders fan violence and rioting, Vancouver Canucks riots, the Malice at the Palace). There’s bad apples in every bunch, Philly fans just get scapegoated because decades ago, some public relations idiot decided it was a good idea to trot a dancing fat guy out in a Santa Claus suit while the Eagles were getting absolutely embarrassed on the field.

    2. McNabb received a standing ovation in his return to Philly. Any educated fan knows what he was: the best quarterback in Eagles history, but with a tendency to play his worst when the stakes are highest.

    3. Shawn Andrews is crazy. He was released 16 months ago by the Eagles and currently does not have a job.

    4. Vick has done nothing wrong since leaving prison. I hope you look at the millions of other people that were once incarcerated and are now moving on with their lives with an equal amount of scorn.

    5. You are an absolute idiot along with with other Vick-bashers on this site. He was raised in an environment where torturing animals isn’t despicable; it’s business. Regardless, it’s inhumane and illegal and the punishment, if anything, was more severe than precedent suggests. You can cry all you want that leopards don’t change their spots, but he is entitled to his freedom and you are entitled to your opinions, as uneducated and worthless as they are.

    you seem to be very against the idea of forgiveness. yknow the catholic church okayd the hunting down, torturing, and killing of jews and muslims in spain, but COME ON that was like 500 years ago! yeahhh its all blown over by now. you think maybe, just MAYBE a person can change? yeah, he probably wouldnt have changed if he never got caught and yeah, he was doing some horrible stuff. i love dogs as much as the next guy, but im mature enough to realize that vick is a changed man, or else hes just acting it. and i dont think vick is that good of an actor.

    classic filthadelphia insult. yeah, this must be the only city in the entire world that has some unruly fans. the last time anybody cheered at an opposing players injury was irvin (10 years ago, give or take). disgusting, yeah. but thats not a regular philly thing. just like a drunk moron who gagged himself to puke on somebody. all of philly hates that guy as much as you do.

    we couldnt wait to get mcnabb out of town because he was awful. he hasnt been great since 2007. his accuracy is mediocre and his short passes are erratic and errant. ask any player on the eagles in the past few years, ask any redskins player. not to mention hes much lazier than we all thought, because apparently he was too good to work hard for shanahan.

    i havent heard a single person decry shawn andrews for being anything but injury prone and overrated. we havent said anything about westbrook or dhani jones…or really anybody besides mcnabb.

    hmmm what other random insults are you throwing our way with little to no basis….

    i guess one could argue that vick is overrated…i mean, he was the first quarterback to rush for 1000 yards in a season but nahhh your extremely angry and spiteful eyes mustve passed rite over that. oh, maybe you saw that he didnt throw an interception for a few months last year…nah, all luck. he totally sucks. especially that game against the redskins last year that was so good that canton put his jersey in the HOF.

    we were calling for reids head because he wouldnt get rid of a terribly overrated quarterback, donovan. (make no mistake, he is and has been awful for quite some time). now that he has a great team assembled with a great shot at the title, im glad we have him. if he makes a bunch of bad moves and doesnt come through, im gonna call for his head. how many times in jeff fishers enormous career do you think that titans fans have screamed for his firing?

    we are loyal, we sell out pretty much every game.

    you are stupid and wrong. please try to know what you are talking about before you do so, it makes beating you in debate so much more rewarding.

    VY probably grew up idolizing Vick. Now, with his career in shambles, Young has the perfect mentor and the perfect situation. This is a great signing.

    ——————————–
    …Young is only 3 years younger than Vick…

    ———————-
    …Yeah, Young is only 3 years younger than Vick…but Young was still in high school when Vick was drafted #1 overall by the Falcons. As a matter of fact, Vick was in the league for a coupld of years before Young graduated from High School.

    He had seen Vick be superman at VA Tech, get drafter #1 overall, and have some nice performances in the NFL, all before he we to college.

    So, as correctly stated earlier, he probably grew up idolizing Vick…

  37. Deb says: Jul 29, 2011 1:41 PM

    Had to laugh when I saw this headline, but after reading the article, Young probably couldn’t be in better hands. Vick credits McNabb with teaching him the importance of getting up early, going to the gym, watching film–and it’s made a world of difference in his performance. If Young is willing to learn, Vick could help him fulfill his incredible potential. And who better to help Young deal with his issues regarding negative fan attention? Vick certainly knows about the ups and downs of fame. But with Young assaulting someone in a nightclub last season, Vick needs to be mindful that Vince doesn’t wind up being a poor influence on him.

    1. So there should be no possibility of redemption? I didn’t like Vick on the field, nor as a person. What he did re: dogfighting was disgusting. But he served two years in prison and is now making amends at every opportunity. Listen to him…he’s a changed guy. I say “give him a chance” until he blows it.

    2. Andrews was stealing money for two years. He didn’t want to play. He’s a head case. I’m surprised we kept him as long as we did.

    3. “Vick would be jeered anywhere else.” Cut your sanctimonious crap, sycophant. Given the same conduct and performance on the field, any fan base would embrace him. And don’t think it wasn’t a big deal here. A lot of people STILL don’t support him.

    As for the rest, take your anti-Phily rhetoric and shove it.

    Vick is a good passer? Lolls. A guy who can’t read a defense. Can’t even figure out where a blitz is coming from, let alone where to go whith the ball after that. What about that makes him a good passer. Oh, I forgot. It’s the o-line…not him. It would be absurd to think he still has the same problems he’s always had. It makes so much more sense to that it be someone elses fault.

    All without being able to read defenses?

    Apparently you stopped watching him in 2006. Vick is a different player now. The state of the O-line only adds to this argument (it was terrible). Vick was probably the ONLY player that could find a way to win with a line like that.

    For the record (again) I didn’t like Vick in Atlanta…at all. But he’s totally different now.

  44. vickspreadherpes says: Jul 29, 2011 5:04 PM

    I am laughing too hard to answer every silly comment so lets pick a few highlights:

    “And the Steelers fans continue to cheer for Roethlisberger.

    And Ravens fans continue to adore Ray Lewis.

    I’m sure most of the players in the NFL are all choir boys, too. ”
    Neither one of them are convicted felons, neither one has ever been arrested. But keep on keepin on with the ridiculous comparisons.

    “So there should be no possibility of redemption? I didn’t like Vick on the field, nor as a person. What he did re: dogfighting was disgusting. But he served two years in prison and is now making amends at every opportunity. Listen to him…he’s a changed guy. I say “give him a chance” until he blows it.”

    Bet you all say that about EVERY released ex-con. The city of Filthadelphia is well known for supporting EVERY violent ex-con that gets released from prison! Seriously now, if he wasn’t your QB you wouldn’t be “giving him any chance”. Admit it’s only because you are all so STARVED for that Super Bowl. You want to say that if Manson, Bundy, Berkowitz were released you’d be singing the same tune? To ALL OFFENDERS OF VIOLENT CRIME COME TO FILTHADELPHIA!! IN FILTHADELPHIA – GIVE WE THEM A CHANCE! Unless they live near you right??

    “5. You are an absolute idiot along with with other Vick-bashers on this site. He was raised in an environment where torturing animals isn’t despicable; it’s business.

    More severe? He should have done 10 years & it’s common knowlege that the prosecutor was a family friend. Did he environment also decree that spreading herpes to HUMANS was a business as well? And you want to call others stupid? AS for opinions, that knife cuts both ways bro.

    They did want to run out Reid, now they love him. They said horrible things about Charlie Manual (fell off a turnip truck, dumb as a stump, just a hick), now he’s a god there after delivering a World Series. They are LOYAL as long as they win, when they lose…well, not so much so at all, just ask Donovan.

    All you have to do is look at the rebuttals & the things they feel make sense, the points they try & make. To see what the Filthadelphia fans post to defend themselves & their merciless, heartless, sadistic QB just proves that everything said about that city is too true.

    The only word that comes to mind about your rantings is “unhinged.” Perhaps the number of people here that called you out on your ridiculous rant should be a clue to you? No use actually having a debate while you conduct your Beer Hall Putsch speech, Adolph.

    I cant imagine there was any tampering when Young was at Eagles players practices in the spring

    Michael Vick “mentoring” anybody is a sick joke.

    You want to say that if Manson, Bundy, Berkowitz were released you’d be singing the same tune? To ALL OFFENDERS OF VIOLENT CRIME COME TO FILTHADELPHIA!! IN FILTHADELPHIA – GIVE WE THEM A CHANCE! Unless they live near you right??

    You might want to seek professional help before we are adding your name to that list…

    Neither MV or VY is perfect but it isn’t really your job to damn the whole city of Philadephia over two football players or the fans that support giving people a second chance…

    Don’t stroke out and please, please take your medication…

    @vickspreadherpes

    im not sure what vick or philadelphia (btw youve been misspelling it this entire time) have done to make you so hateful and spiteful but comparing what manson, bundy, and berkowitz did (several homicides with no reason beyond entertainment or psychopathy) to what vick did (dogfighting and animal cruelty) is so far out of left field its a joke.

    really, are you joking? i cant tell, you might just be one of those tools who likes pissing people off. if so, please just come out and say it now because thatd explain a lot.

    where was i…

    ah, yes. everybody who has played with vick post arrest has said that he is the hardest worker they know, the best leader they know, and one of the best QBs in the league. you think perhaps they have a bit more expertise and knowledge on the subject than you, a little angry troll in some basement somewhere? or, wait, lemme guess, theyre all covering for him, just like the entire city of philadelphia (say it with me–PHIL-A-DELPH-I-A). an entire city of scumbags with no culture or class are covering for their team of scumbags and their fanbase of scumbags just so we can trick everyone into liking a completely reformed excon (of two years, might i add).

    wait, did i say we have no culture? silly me, i must have forgotten that the american revolution was based out of this city, as well as the US government post revolution. we also have a bunch of tall buildings…the liberty bell…one of the most famous art museums in the world…independence hall (kinda goes along with the revolution and the liberty bell)….and a more unique culture than anything your likely pathetic city has to offer.
