Michael Vick will be the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback this season and vows that he will be a duel threat when it comes to game time.
Vick has been working on getting in shape, training his legs in preparation to run.
Vick, who just last month said he added four pounds of muscle to withstand more hits, said he would be doing 500-600 pushups and situps until he couldn’t run anymore.
He said he blames the media, saying they made him change the way he played the game. “You guys act like I get hurt once a week.”
Vick isn’t worried about the risk of injury. “I think you’ve got to take on a certain mind-set that you’re going to play the game all-out. If you go into a football game not wanting to get hurt or trying not to get hurt, it doesn’t allow you to play the way you want to play.”
