Mike Vick went on the air to talk about how he's now dedicating himself to playing as hard as he can. He is no longer going to worry about injuries and he's going to "leave it all out on the field." He blamed his precautions on trying to protect himself (even though he never learned how to slide, throw the ball away, or get down to avoid a vicious hit) as the reasons the past two seasons he was hurt. I wonder how Mike Vick would explain his 2010 broken rib? I mean if throwing caution to the wind is the way to stat healthy then why did he get hurt then? That's a question I'm sure will be revisited this season when Vick gets hurt.(that's if he beats out Nick Foles or whoever else is on the roster) Mike also mentioned how he's now motivated to get into the best shape of his life. I am guess being one of the highest paid players in football wasn't motivation enough for him. Later when asked about why his production slipped so much Vick went on about not living in the past or making excuses, but he did take the opportunity to take a slight dig at his team mates. I hope Chip Kelly teaches his players to say as little as possible Unlike his predicessor. These guys still don't get how all of their talking causes more trouble in the long run. Of course the Vick riders will come on and defend him and blame everyone else as usual. Good luck lasting the season Mike Vick. You're truly going to need it.
