“Chip told me how to run with the football the other day,” Vick said. “He taught me how to run with the football and how to carry the football, and I think it’s something that you just have to work on.”
“The other day, I broke out in the pocket, and the first thing Chip told me was to tuck the football,” Vick said. “So I showed him how I was running with it, and he looked at it and he knocked the ball right out of my hands. And he was like, ‘Hold it like this.’ And what he told me felt comfortable. I had a tighter grip on the football. That should secure that problem as long as I work on it. Like I said, you’re always a work in progress, and even when you think you know it all, sometimes you don’t. The people who feel like they know everything, they don’t.”
I know what you’re thinking, or at least what I’m thinking: Mike Vick has been in the NFL how long and he doesn’t know how to hold a football properly while running? I mean, it’s not entirely surprising given what we’ve seen from him putting the ball on the turf in the past, but it almost sounds like nobody told him to fix that before.
The quote comes from a story at Philly Mag by Sheil Kapadia who for a moment seemed to wonder if Vick was being facetious or serious, finally deciding that Vick was being earnest.
