Michael Vick told an Atlanta radio station Wednesday that he has lots of regrets from his days with the Falcons — and those regrets go beyond his involvement in dog fighting.
Vick says he’s also sorry that he didn’t work hard enough at becoming the quarterback the Falcons needed him to be.
“There was a lot more I could have done off the field and in the film room that could have elevated my game to a different level,” Vick said on 790 The Zone, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I was complacent at the time, somewhat lazy, and I settled for mediocrity. I thought what I was doing was enough.”
Vick said that in 2010 — where ever he’s playing — he’ll be a much more dedicated quarterback, and that he expects to be a better player in his 30s than he was in his 20s.
“I want to play my best football up until the age of 34 and 35, and I’m going to put everything into it,” Vick said. “Just imagine what I could have been doing if I really would have been applying myself. That’s a regret I have.”
