Michael Vick is getting older, but that doesn’t man he’s slowing down. Vick is a little over a month away from his 33rd birthday, but on Thursday he proved that there is still got a good deal of youth left in his legs. After plenty of badgering from teammate LeSean McCoy, Vick raced the Pro Bowl running back after the Eagles’ practice on Thursday — and he won. But Vick didn’t just beat McCoy in a 40-yard sprint, he smoked him by five yards, according to Pro Football Talk. McCoy, who ran a 4.5 40-yard dash at the 2009 NFL combine, had apparently been ragging on Vick for weeks, even calling him an “old man” at times. The veteran quarterback had been brushing aside all the noise for a few weeks until he finally decided to show up his much younger — 24-year old — teammate. Eagles punter Anderson Colt recapped the excitement with one very quick and direct tweet about the race. Vick just beat Shady in a 40 yard race. @MikeVick— Colt Anderson (@AndersonColt) May 02, 2013 Vick had a little more fun with the situation on Twitter, doing a little gloating about his win and even using #SpeedKills to emphasize his victory. So today at the field 1 of my teammates called me old & bagged to race me in the 40yd dash. Anybody want to guess which player? #BirdGang— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) May 02, 2013 Beat him by a few yards too lol #SpeedKILLS— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) May 02, 2013 The most impressive piece of this entire situation is less about beating McCoy and may be the fact that at 32, Vick can still run  sub-4.5 40. So much for slowing down with age. Have a question for Luke Hughes? Send it to him via Twitter at @LukeFHughes or send it here.
