Favorite Quotes from Michael Vick
“I mean, I was just one of the ones who got exposed, and because of the position I was in, where I was in my life, it went mainstream. A lot of people got out of it after my situation, not because I went to prison but because it was sad for them to see me go through something that was so pointless, that could have been avoided.”– Michael Vick
“What I did, you know, being away from my family, letting so many people down. I let myself down, not being out on the football field, being in a prison bed, in a prison bunk, writing letters home, you know. That wasn’t my life.”– Michael Vick
“There’s no reason for me to go into a big dissertation about why I’m not getting the calls. The refs have to do their jobs as well. I even mentioned it in training camp to the refs when we had our little meeting.”– Michael Vick
“I have always been an outstanding football player, I have always had uncanny abilities, great arm strength, an immense ability to play the game from a quarterback standpoint. The problem was that I wasn’t given the liberty to do certain things when I was young.”– Michael Vick
“The good thing is I don’t put the ball in my right hand and I’m predominantly left-handed when I’m running the ball. I just have to take care of the football and even if I have two hands that are 100 percent, I still can’t turn the ball over. It’s just something I have to mentally prepare for, and I think I’m strong enough to do that.”– Michael Vick
