Report: Michael Vick has been ‘laughably bad’ in practice

Michael VickStarting positions in the NFL are typically not won or lost in mid-June, but that might wind up being the case with the New York Jets. The Jets want Geno Smith to earn the starting quarterback job so they can continue to develop him as a player and solidify the future of their offense.

According to one report, Smith is getting absolutely no competition from Michael Vick at the moment.

Vick, who recently said that it hurts “deep down” to not be a starting quarterback, has apparently looked horrendous during minicamp. The New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch shared some observations after watching practice on Wednesday morning.

It’s also worth noting that Smith isn’t exactly lighting it up, so he’s┬áprobably not running away with the job at the moment.

All things considered, Smith did a decent job last season. He’s reportedly getting 75% of the first-team reps in camp for a reason. Starting as a rookie quarterback in the NFL is an incredibly difficult task, and Smith proved that by turning the ball over a ton. He also managed to win eight games, so it could have been much worse.

Fortunately for Vick, it is only June 19. But if he doesn’t improve dramatically over the next two months, it sounds like Rex Ryan will have a very easy decision on his hands.
