Vick may be changing his mind on wearing No. 8

Getty Images

Jets quarterback Mike Vick said on Monday that he has selected No. 8.  Perhaps after realizing that Browning Nagle once wore that same number, Vick apparently had a change of heart.

Vick’s Instagram post revealing his jersey selection has been deleted, and he still has not been issued a number by the team.

As of Sunday night Vick was deliberating between No. 8 and No. 3.  So maybe No. 3 will be the winner.

It’s unclear why Vick decided not to go with No. 8.

If you’ve already ordered a Vick jersey with No. 8, you’d better cancel.  Or maybe you can just cut away enough of the 8 to make it look like a 3.

    Or just cut away the “V” in Vick.

    8 is the over/under for games he will suit up…

    In my best Italian/Brooklin accent….”you’re a funny guy!” LOL

    As if wearing Rick Mirer’s old number will be any better…

    What type of Jets fan would buy a Vick jersey???

    Probably the same type who purchased a Favre jersey….they no doubt sport a matching hat with an “L” on the front….

    I wonder if you can get a Ron Mexico 8 jersey?

  7. whiteknightblackheart says: Apr 28, 2014 7:04 PM

    I wouldn’t buy a Vick jersey, but I would totally buy a Mexico 14 jersey

    Geno Smith needs to show some respect and give Vick #7. Didnt Geno wear #12 in college anyways.

  9. nehxas says: Apr 28, 2014 7:27 PM

    If you’re showing respect for Vick, you have to show respect for Namath (12)

    But Vick said when he signed he wouldn’t be asking for 7. Geno has shown no disrespect.

    Tell me, just what has Vick archived in the NFL that anyone should give up anything for him?

  11. godofpft says: Apr 28, 2014 7:37 PM

    Could always just go with 17.

  12. alshonbrandontandem says: Apr 28, 2014 7:44 PM

    What was his prison #? Go with that.

  13. raiderapologist says: Apr 28, 2014 7:58 PM

    If you’re a grown-assed man buying a player’s jersey with the intention of wearing it, you need to stop. You’re an embarrassment to your family.

  14. harrycanyon says: Apr 28, 2014 8:01 PM

    Vick has done nothing in this league but a few highlights and lots of lowlights to demand anyone give a number to him. Geno has every right to have that number. He was a Jet before Vick.

  15. doggeatdogg says: Apr 28, 2014 8:03 PM

    This is most likely his last year in the NFL. He needs to worry about that and concentrate on a different approach at the QB position.

  16. f1restarter says: Apr 28, 2014 8:07 PM

    Actually, I sort of sympathize with Vick on this one. Giving up your number to a great QB is one thing. But to Geno Smith???

  17. mackcarrington says: Apr 28, 2014 8:10 PM

    Well, I’m impressed nobody came up with Vick wearing jersey #5393721.

  18. mnsadsportsfan says: Apr 28, 2014 8:13 PM

    He should wear his federal prison number.

  19. mythaimyke says: Apr 28, 2014 8:48 PM

    How about 0!

  20. phillyphannnn83 says: Apr 28, 2014 8:50 PM

    Wow! I COMPLETELY missed the part of the rule book that says jerseys are for children only.


  21. noahbird says: Apr 28, 2014 8:51 PM

    I heard he is trying to get 3.5*2 to be officially recognized since we suck at math.

  22. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 28, 2014 8:57 PM

    On the back of Mike’s jersey –

    The Real


  23. damcmp says: Apr 28, 2014 8:59 PM

    #3 is closer to his IQ

  24. hartleechung says: Apr 28, 2014 9:08 PM

    Has to suck being a Jets fan knowing your season is toast and having to root for Vick.

  25. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 28, 2014 9:09 PM

    If Smith had any self confidence he’d just give Mike the number then take it back when Vick gets cut/traded/retires. But Geno isn’t that smart.

  26. rutchaser says: Apr 28, 2014 9:15 PM

    Or just don’t buy a jersey because you are a grown man.

  27. badmoonrison says: Apr 28, 2014 9:17 PM

    Only a dog abuser would buy his loser jersey. I bought a shirt off zazzles website a few years ago back when the dog killer was still in prison. The shirt had a picture of a mean pit bull that said “Vick, I’M WAITING.”

  28. rutchaser says: Apr 28, 2014 9:21 PM

    @raiderapologist – thank you! I’ve never understood why grown men wear another man’s jersey. I think it’s my biggest pet peeve of all time.

  29. rcali says: Apr 28, 2014 9:32 PM

    You all are missing the easy one here. His number should be 33765-183. That’s the number you Sick fans should get on your Jets jersey.

    “Or maybe you can just cut away enough of the 8 to make it look like a 3.”

    Funny, that’s exactly how I made my first fake ID in college. I was born in 78 and made it look like a 73. I was the only 23 year old Freshman. True story, bro!!!

  31. dontouchmyjunk says: Apr 28, 2014 9:45 PM

    Why doesn’t he just choose 17?

  32. atrujetzfan says: Apr 28, 2014 10:06 PM

    People who still hate Michael Vick because of the dog fighting thing are allowed to do so, but the ones who bring it up every time his name is mentioned anywhere are just plain ignorant. That’s like someone who waits to hear your name somewhere and they jump on the opportunity to say something trashy and disrespectful. Personally I’m tired of hearing about it, he served his time he apologized immensely and the fact that you can’t get over it is on you. You don’t have to forgive him but to hold it against him for the rest of his life is just ludicrous. Cut him some slack, he’s human. It doesn’t help that he’s famous or this post wouldn’t be necessary. That’s the only reason people still talk about it is because he’s famous. It’s pathetic that humans are so obsessed with talking trash, now the world is becoming a dump that this guy is getting tired of smelling.

    3 would be appropriate. Follow in the footsteps of the great Russell Wilson.

  34. jrcoop says: Apr 29, 2014 12:05 AM

    Really. It’s a number. You’re a number so end the stupidity.

    ^ Real talk

  36. frankiesweep says: Apr 29, 2014 12:54 AM

    He should go w/ the Quincy Carter #17

  37. nite2al says: Apr 29, 2014 1:26 AM

    Wearing a player’s jersey is not for me, but I see nothing wrong with it.

  38. labratre says: Apr 29, 2014 8:01 AM

    Yeah, people still hating on Vick, get the crap outta here. You people need to move on and let him live his life. You people are full of hate, get over it. Do your thing Mike, rise above it all young fella!

  39. imacmanla77 says: Apr 29, 2014 9:58 AM

    Give him number 6. Thrn rex can leave his tottoo if he succeeds.
