Michael Vick had yet another outstanding game last night, this time against the hapless Houston Texans defense. While he did do some damage against Houston’s secondary, their font seven did put some hits on Vick.
“There are a lot of games like this. You get knocked around a couple times, you get put in the position that you almost have to come back and score. You find out a lot about yourself playing this game. Times that you think you can’t do it, there’s something always in the back of your mind saying ‘Yes, you can.’ That’s what drives me, that’s what motivates me. The opportunity at achieving greatness is what I strive for.”
Vick was asked whether he’s ever taken as many big hits as he has his season.
“Like I said before, I’m used to taking hits. It’s not that bad. They may look harder than what they seem but it’s not that bad. If I take one and I lay down, then I took a good one. I’m a pretty tough guy I feel like for the most part so I try to bounce back whenever I can.”
Finally, Vick talked about getting more vocal when they lost the lead in the third quarter.
“When you get down and you know you should be winning the game by more points than what you have, then instinctively you just step up as a leader. That’s my job. My job is to rally, motivate, to push these guys as hard as I can just as much as I’ve pushed myself. So with that said, you just got to not put yourself in that position and not make this game harder than what this is.”
