Michael Vick has settled on a jersey number

6a0134865674e5970c0162fcea91d3970d AP

Our long national nightmare is over.

Michael Vick has a number.

The Jets quarterback has officially been issued No. 8, according to the team’s official website.

Vick created the story himself by posting a photo on social media, then deleting it, making some wonder if he was going with 3 instead. It was only an issue in the first place because the guy he was brought in to back up, Geno Smith, wears his longtime number 7.

So now Vick is joining the ranks of Mark Brunell and Browning Nagle rather than Rick Mirer, and we can all rest a little easier.

And thank the NFL for the extra two weeks before the draft to get weighty matters such as this settled.

    MV3 just flows better.

    Better to be safe and let the psychopath wear whatever number he wants.

    Mark Brunell was 4x the QB Michael Vick ever was.

    The Nagle/Mirer comparison is much more accurate.

    It now matches the number of games he’ll miss due to injury.

    Brunell was better

    8 Is a weak number man! Shoulda gone with 3 or 9. Odd number is almost always better than even!

    8 -the number of wins for the Jets if he stays healthy.

    He should have gone with 9, as in K-9. Woof!

    Come on man, he’s served his time.

    Makes it easier for Vick H8ters to alter their jerseys

    No Matt Hasselbeck mention? :(

    Aside from the Sesame Street Rock Band, The Count is my favorite.

    USA Today reported about an hour ago that Vick has tweeted that he changed his mind, and is going to take 1 instead.

    The Jets, Mike Vick, and no drama? How naive we all must feel right about now…
