The Jets could decide to use Michael Vick as a change-of-pace quarterback if the timing is right in a game (Newsday, August 11).
Though all signs point to Geno Smith as the starter, Vick said timing is everything and timing could call for two quarterbacks in a game.
“There is a time for it,” he said. “Those plays can be mixed into the game very easily. We won’t make a big deal out of that. When it happens, it happens.”
Smith is on board with that plan should the team opt for that strategy.
“I think it’ll have some benefits and there may be some disadvantages,” Smith said. “But we won’t know until we actually get on the field.”
Despite Vick’s confidence in the role of two QBs, he admitted that the plays didn’t last long in Philadelphia.
“That’s when we learned that there is a time and place for it,” Vick said. “I think you just mix it in, you disrupt things defensively, what the opposition is doing and make it work like that.”
