Michael Vick is No. 1 in your program

The veteran quarterback is changing his number with the Jets.

Does a number change help Michael Vick's chances of being the No. 1 quarterback for the Jets?

Michael Vick is set for a fresh start in a new city as a member of the New York Jets, and sometimes with a new team comes a new number.

Vick, whose traditional No. 7 jersey is currently worn by teammate and fellow quarterback Geno Smith, originally opted to wear No. 8 instead, but apparently, the change didn'€™t suit him.

Perhaps the change to wearing No. 1 is indicative of Vick's aspirations to take the starting quarterback position from Smith.

Whatever his intentions, Vick has already created a tough decision for coach Rex Ryan, who has said that he won't commit to Smith as the Jets' starting quarterback for the upcoming season.
