Vick Has A Couple Years Left In Him


Trouble

At a time when more and more quarterbacks are performing at a high level even on the wrong side of 35, there’s no reason to think that more of them won’t do the same thing.

Mike Vick may not be one of those who will do the same thing.

During Saturday’s interview with Howard Eskin of WIP in Philly, during which Vick clarified/justified/whatever his recent remarks about wanting coach Chip Kelly to name a starter before training camp, Vick mentioned in passing that he’s “got a couple more years left.”

But Vick is only 32. Sure, he’ll turn 33 later this month, but a “couple more years” means he’d retire at 34, after the 2014 season.

For now, we’ll regard the statement as non-binding filler aimed at illustrating the differences between himself and Nick Foles, who is entering his second season.

Then again, since Vick’s primary justification for saying that he wants an answer from Kelly before camp is that Vick was simply being truthful, there’s no reason to assume he was being untruthful when he provided an estimated duration of his remaining career.

Of course, the bigger question is whether the Eagles or anyone else will be willing to make Vick the starter in 2014. With a one-year deal in Philadelphia, there’s a chance he’ll have to consider commencing the clipboard-holding phase of his career, if he can’t find a team that will hand him the job or if he can’t beat out whoever he’d be competing with.

In other words he wants big pay and to be a starter for the rest of his career.

MIKE VICK AIN'T DEAD YET. HE'S STILL GOT SOME IN THE TANK. GIVEN THE CHANCE, WE'LL FIND THAT OUT THIS SEASON. PEOPLE ARE ALREADY WRITING THE EAGLES OFF. BUT I WOULDN'T DISMISS THEM SO QUICKLY. THERES A NEW COACH OVER THERE, WITH A NEW ATTITUDE. AND THEIR TEAM MENTALITY WILL BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM LAST YEAR. THE EAGLES AIN'T MY CUP OF TEA, BUT YOU GIVE THE DEVIL HIS DUE.ph34r.png

I DON'T KNOW IF HE CAN PULL OFF THE BIG PAYDAY THING. BUT IF HE KEEPS HIS MIND ON THE BALL, HE'LL DO OK.

I agree. I think the best way to get all you can get out of Vick is to have him on 1 year contracts. Seems like when the $$$ is on the line, Vick comes to play. Guess that's the way it goes for just about everything in life?

RIGHT NOW, THIS MOMENT IN TIME .... VICK IS THE EAGLES BEST BET. THAT IS, IF THEY WANT TO WIN RIGHT NOW. IF THEY ARE LOOKING DOWN THE ROAD, THEIR CHOICES MAY GO IN ANOTHER DIRECTION.

I think you'll see Vick early and IF they dont win, He's gone. Chip Kelly will go to the youth at QB to get a "pass" for the season.

LIKE I SAID "K", THEY'VE GOT A NEW COACH, WITH A NEW MENTALITY. THEY SHOULD CONTEND FOR THE EAST. THEY WON'T BE .... JUST ANOTHER WIN FOR THE COWBOYS, GIANTS AND SKINS. THE EAGLES SHOULD MAKE THE EAST RACE INTERESTING. WE'LL SEE.

He's their best QB, but will he win just enough to keep them mired in mediocrity?

I think they'd be better off giving the reins to the USC kid and taking their lumps.

THEY MAY GO THAT ROUTE, BUT I THINK THE NEW COACH WANTS TO START OFF WINNING. HE CAN ONLY DO THAT WITH VICK. WE'LL SEE.

I agree. They arent ready to scrap and rebuild. But this is probably Vicks last dance with them or maybe as a starter.
