Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said late Thursday night that he lost his confidence and his passion for the game of football at some point during the miserable 2011 and 2012 seasons and said working with new Eagles coach Chip Kelly has helped restore whatever had been sapped from his game during those lean years, Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia reports.
“I’m having fun playing football,” Vick said. “I fell in love with the game again, and I’m very thankful for that.
“You’ve got to play this game with intense passion and a purpose and I thank Coach Kelly for what he’s done for me, and that’s given me that confidence that I felt that I was losing at some point in my career.”
“Just the flow of the way we prepare has me in a position where I feel like I can do it all,” Vick said. “That’s a good thing, but I don’t want to get too over-confident. I want to remain humble and continue to have the same work ethic that has put me in the position to feel like this team can go places, and I can go places with them.
“So I’m just going to show that I can be consistent and protect the football and do the small things, and when you can do that, it usually adds up into things you can be proud of, the big things.”
“You just have to keep working hard, and when you do that, you get the results that you want. But I can’t be satisfied with this performance tonight. It’s a long season, and we’ve got a lot of work to do, and I understand that and I won’t lose sight of that.”
