Earlier this month, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy challenged “old man” Michael Vick to a 40 yard dash. McCoy was reportedly smoked by Vick, losing the race by at least five yards. Fresh off a defeat of the team’s running back, Vick spoke to Dan Patrick on The Dan Patrick Show about his speed.
Vick believes despite being older than San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick and Washington’s Robert Griffin III, he is still faster than any quarterback in the NFL.
“These guys are young and they’re fast and they’re quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up,” Vick said. “I really don’t feel like there’s a quarterback in the league who can beat me in a 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I’ll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But as of right now I’m going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast and RG3 is fast as well.”
Vick, who is turning 33 years old next month but still has plenty of speed.
It would definitely be cool to see Vick, Kaepernick and Griffin III have a foot race. Unfortunately, that will most likely never happen.
