Source: Number 7 is the last thing on Vick’s mind

TMZ has reported that Mike Vick wants No. 7, if he signs with the Jets.  In response to the TMZ report, a source close to Vick says that Vick doesn’t care about the number he’d be wearing in New York.

“It’s the last thing on his mind,” the source said.

It’s the right attitude.  The number doesn’t matter, especially at this stage of Vick’s career.  He’s far more concerned about finding the right fit and having the best chance to play, since this is likely his last chance to be a starter and make a difference in the NFL.

So Smith can keep No. 7.  Vick, as we surmised, would be far more interested in taking Smith’s job.

  1. A hasty and incorrect report from TMZ?! Say it ain’t so…

    Try to make the Jets into a circus all you want, it ended when Tannenbaum was fired. They’re just your average team now.

  2. So it’s not politics or something superficial, this guy just means serious business? Oh how wonderful says Geno Smith. Maybe he will consider changing his name to Geno Marcus Vick if they sign the other Vick. He can just change it back after he gets to a new team.

  3. I hear that he really wants to wear the number of dogs that he personally hung on his jersey, but that is most likely a defensive lineman’s number.

  4. I can’t wait to see Marcus Vick tweeting about Rex. I can’t wait to see Rex responding to the tweets from Marcus about Rex.
    I can’t wait to see Mike Vick being the classiest guy in the whole situation.

  5. By all accounts of how Vick handled losing his job in Philly, I’d say people who follow football mostly knew the TMZ report was nothing more than hot air.

  6. Even if he does take Geno’s starting job… He’ll be hurt a couple of games later and Geno wil be right back in there.

  7. Do the Cam Newton – wore #2 at Auburn, but Jimmy Clausen had it for the panthers. Instead of arguing over it, he just wore #1 to signify the he owned Jimmy Clausen.

    Problem solved!

  8. Hey Jets!!!………give us Wilkerson and you can have Jackson and Vick. Deal? Ok, I’ll get the paperwork started!

  9. He’ll have a good game or two then get hurt and the whole “Mike Vick Saga” will be over—-for good.

  10. Hey Mike,

    Shouldn’t you be worried about the interview this weekend, and not about which number you are wearing? The Jets might look at your salary demands and say later…

    BREAKING: We don’t know

  12. “Last thing on his mind” and “Only thing on his mind” are not mutually exclusive.

    What in his ENTIRE career would make you doubt the story that Vick is hung up on wearing #7?

    Dude’s delusional enough to think he’s a starting QB worthy of a big contract, he’s delusional enough to think he has leverage over the Jets on a jersey number.

  13. Ah, so Vick didn’t say he didn’t want #7. Sounds like his agent is trying to spin a negative story and PR disaster about Vick wanting the starting QBs number.

  14. Wow, that new heroin must be crazy stuff. I see comments above where folks used Vick in the same sentence with the word “class” and the same breath as Joe Montana. Let’s get this straight right now. Vick, standing on his momma’s shoulders, still could not get up high enough just to kiss Joe Montana’s ass. Not that he would or should have to, after all, he, his defenders, his crack head brother have declared himself to be “one of the best ever”. So, any day now, he is going to “shock the world”. he’s garbage, worthless, liar and a fraud.

  15. How about we take a gander of his stats shall we, since numbers DO NOT LIE

    First 4 games of 2013 until injury
    1080 Yards thrown, 5 tds thrown, 2 rushing tds, 2 interceptions, 228 rushing yards

    Extrapolated over Full Season:
    4320 yards thrown , 20 tds thrown, 8 rushing tds , 8 interceptions , 912 rushing yards

    Also, keep in mind that the Eagles played only 3 playoff teams ALL OF LAST SEASON. It just so happened that those teams Vick had to face weeks 2, 3 and 4.

    All non-supporters of Vick should really know what they are talking about before they open their insignificant mouths.
    He is constantly injured, this is true, but when healthy the guy can flat out ball.

    Oh, and one more thing: If you add Vicks projected passing yards and rushing yards, it would be equal to the amount of yards that Manning just put up in his record setting season.

  16. I remember when Mike Vick was accused and convicted of taking underperforming dogs by their hind legs and slamming them into the concrete until they died.

    Wow, Vick should be lucky that even Philly fans aren’t that brutal with underperforming animals.

    I hear that Michael Vick wants to know how many chickens, cows, and pigs you both have hung brutally on your dinner plates daily. I hope neither of you aren’t deer, bear or bird hunters. Oh, you better be condemning your peers who go to the safari to hunt and kill innocent lions, rhinos, and tigers just for fun as trophies.

    How about we………………………….

    _______________________

    How about we not. Vick is garbage ands aside from one good outing in 2010, he has never been anything but below average at the position.

    He turns the ball over far too often. He has at least one turnover for every touchdown. Not a good ratio for a decent NFL QB.

    On a positiv note, teams that have him on the roster sell a lot of jerseys to stupid football fans who don’t know anything about the game.

    Basically, Vick wasn’t any good, ever. He is not as fragile as glass and can’t seem to make more than a hadn full of starts before he is banged up and cannot play. Any team that signs him as a potential starter is thinking about jersey sales and maybe selling a few more tickets on Sunday. What they will get is a guy that can play about half the time, and not very well at that. Stats don’t lie.

  19. If the number 8 is available, Vick should go for that. In China, 8 is the lucky number. This would get a much larger viewing audience for the NFL!
