Mike Vick says he cheated the Falcons

Posted by Mike Florio on November 21, 2010, 5:26 PM EST

As the redemption phase of quarterback Mike Vick’s career hits high gear, Vick reflected on his past during an exclusive interview with Bob Costas of NBC’s Football Night in America.

During the interview, which will air tonight (the show starts at 7:00 p.m. ET), Costas asks Vick whether he believes he cheated the Falcons, the organization that made Vick the first overall pick in the 2001 draft.

“In so many ways, I do,” Vick said. “I feel like I cheated the organization. I didn’t give them my all. I gave them everything on the field, 100 percent but sometimes that’s not enough.”

Vick said that he now spends much more time working on his game.

“This time around, I just wanted to work harder than I ever worked before, not shortchange myself. I didn’t put in the work and the time and the effort. I didn’t dedicate myself the way I do now,” Vick said.

That dedication has resulted in Vick having no turnovers in his six game appearances, with five starts. He’ll try to push the Eagles to 7-3 on Sunday night against the Giants.

i guess if we are going to talk about him, might as well mention that the giants might be giving the NFL the blue print on how to defend vick. having a ton of success overload blitzing vick from his left, forcing him right where he is struggling throwing the ball.

He was exposed when he was here, but when the clock hits :00, let's talk...LOL!
