Michael Vick met the media today and not surprisingly the main topic of conversation was his ailing hand. He says that it still hurts, but he’s played through worse
“I mean, it’s sore, it’s real sore.” Vick said, “But you know what, I feel like I’ve played through worse and I think the most important thing is to just go out and play and be conscience of protecting it but at the same time just letting it all go. And if it’s too much that I can’t bear and something’s really wrong, then I’ll probably come out of the game but hopefully not. I keep saying my prayers and hopefully things will work out.”
Vick says that more than anything, he’s going to make he can be out there for his teammates.
“Just like last week, I had a concussion, you know, all week last week it was a rough week, but I want to hold myself accountable. I feel like every Sunday is a time for me to go out and display what I’ve been put on this earth to do and I won’t do it selfishly. If I can’t be out there, then I won’t be out there, but I want to show my teammates that they can count on me in times of need. And you know, I just love playing this game and I love playing with them.”
Finally, he understands the threat posed by a good 49ers defense.
“It’s a good defense, man. That’s all I can say about the San Francisco 49ers when you watch them on film. You watch most of the game they play and this is a really good defense; they’re strong, they’re stout with some really good players and we’re going to have to be aware of what’s going on out there and we definitely have to attack these guys.”
