Vick's goal: 'Super Bowl. That's it'


Michael Vick’s goals for the 2011 season sounds pretty straightforward: “Super Bowl. That’s it. That’s it.”

Vick made the rounds at ESPN this week in promoting the bracket-style contest to select the player on the cover of the Madden 12 video game. Each team has a player in the field and the fans decide who moves on to the next matchup. Vick’s first matchup is with Dallas’ DeMarcus Ware.

I spoke to Jeremy Maclin last night and we’re trying to coordinate everybody getting together, so we can keep training and throwing and be prepared for whatever.”

On the voting for the game: “I think it’s great for the fans. It’s great for Madden … It’s a great opportunity, a great experience. I’m just enjoying it.”

On his improved passing accuracy: I think we throw the ball so much in practice. In each and every game, you don't have a choice but to get into a rhythm and we have good coaches to teach the passing game.

Did you fit the offense or did offense fit you?: “It was the style of offense that was a good fit for me. I always wanted to be in an offense that we threw a lot.

Preparing mentally in the offseason without coaches’ input: “I have every game from last season. I have all of the good plays and the bad. And I have almost every game plan from last year.

On reception in Philly: “It was a warm welcome from the fans and the coaches. I felt I was at home from Day 1.”
