New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick's message on Aug. 13 to Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is to "continue to make amends," per NJ.com.


New York Jets quarterback Michael Vick's advice for beleaguered Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is to stick to his word. 

Rice, who was involved in a domestic assault case with his wife Janay Palmer at a New Jersey casino several months ago, wants to be an advocate against domestic violence. Vick told NJ.com's Dom Consentino on Aug. 13 that Rice must back up his words:

"Vick has said and done all the right things since his release from prison. But as someone whose indelibly dark past will forever follow him, as someone who will never be forgiven by a good many people, what advice would Vick have for Rice, who likewise will always have his name attached to the awful things he did?

"'I think the most important thing that you can do is to try to make amends for what you've done,' Vick told NJ.com this week. 'I think you have to show people that you're trying to help yourself and bring awareness to that situation to help others, to prevent it. You've got to become an advocate.'

"Ray Rice as a crusader against domestic violence? Vick was basically saying that's what has to happen.

"Vick has had a PR handler steering him through the years. But he has worked with the Humane Society and advocated for animal welfare. He described this to NJ.com as a kind of penance, as 'something that weighs deeply in my heart because of my past.' Whether that's sincerity or just a talking point for image repair is irrelevant: Vick, through his actions, has tried to write something positive out of a negative he created. He thinks Rice needs to do the same.

"'You've got to continue to make amends,' Vick said. 'Once you start something, you can never go back. I feel like I've become an advocate of animal welfare, and I think I have to continue that.

"'It's all about keeping kids 15 years from now from doing ths same. We've saved a lot of kids, and we've saved a lot of animals. That's how I feel. Ray will make it right. He'll do everything he can to make this situation whole again.'"

On. Aug. 12, former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and current FOX Sports NFL analyst Donovan McNabb expressed his dislike for the Wildcat Formation involving Geno Smith and Vick in the Jets offense, per The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta:

"Five years have passed since Donovan McNabb was exposed to the Wildcat, but his feelings about the offensive wrinkle used by Marty Mornhinweg in Philadelphia haven't wavered one bit .

"He still hates it. 

"Mike Vick was Mornhinweg's Wildcat/change-of-pace quarterback behind McNabb in 2009, much like he is expected to be with Geno Smith and the Jets at the start of the season. McNabb cringes at the thought of his former offensive coordinator and former teammate dusting off the gimmick. 

"'The Jets tried this whole garbage with Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez and it got them nowhere,' McNAbb, a FOX Sports analyst, told the daily news. 'In the situation now, I think it takes away from what Geno Smith can do. It's a maturity process for him to try to develop into an NFL quarterback. Now you're taking him off the field or splitting him wide to bring in a 34-year-old quarterback? To do what? I understand the 'wow' effect, but it's not a good thing for either quarterback.'

"Time has intensified McNabb's disdain for the Wildcat. Although he believes that there might be an occasional benefit, he's smart enough to know the two-tiered downside to the exercise. 

"The Wildcat is an unnecessary roadblock to Smith's development and an unnecessary injury risk to Vick, Rex Ryan's biggest insurance policy. Although Vick has made it clear that he's here to help in any way, he also believes in his heart of hearts that he's not a backup quarterback in the NFL. 

"'Mike wants to be the starter,' McNabb said. 'He doesn't want to go in there to be the Tim Tebow of the 2012 Jets. Nobody wants that.'

"The Jets have used Vick as a Wildcat option in training camp, raising questions about the wisdom of inserting a veteran with a track record of bumps and bruises for selecct run-pass option plays when the primary quarterback objective is to nurture a 23-year-old. 

"Vick believes the Wildcat wasn't a rousing success with the Eagles. Smith insists that he's fine with the random quarterback shuffling now. Mornhinweg admitted that disrupting the offensive rhythm is a 'real' downside, but 'there's an awful lot of positives.'" 

 

The 34-year-old Vick has thrown for 21,489 yards, 128 touchdowns and 85 interceptions on an 80.9 percent passer rating in 128 career regular-season games, per ESPN stats
