Vick as starting QB familiar for Jets’ Mornhinweg
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Marty Mornhinweg has seen it all before from Michael Vick.
The flicks of the wrist that rocket footballs downfield 50-plus yards with ease.
The pretty spirals.
The video game-like elusiveness.
The New York Jets offensive coordinator hopes to see it all again. At least for one more game: Sunday at Kansas City.
With Geno Smith benched after struggling through a dismal first half of the season, Vick is getting his first start as the Jets’ quarterback against the Chiefs.
It will be the 34-year-old Vick’s first regular-season start in just over a year, when he was still with Philadelphia. It’s also the first time Mornhinweg is drawing up a game plan with Vick as his starting quarterback since the end of the 2012 season – when they were both with the Eagles.
