Michael Vick will work as studio analyst for FOX

Michael Vick isn’t playing anymore, but he remained around the game this summer as a coaching intern with the Chiefs.

He’ll be around the game this fall as well, although it will be in a different guise. Vick will work for FOX Sports as a studio analyst on FOX NFL Kickoff, which leads into their pregame show, and will also make appearances on FS1 studio shows over the course of the season.


A formal announcement is expected this weekend, but FOX Sports president of production and executive producer John Entz told USA Today that Vick has a “truly unique perspective that intrigues and engages our viewer.”

“I think I’m ready for it,” Vick said. “I have already been through that during my career and have had a lot of practice doing interviews. You have to be careful because anything you say can go viral. I have never criticized guys, but I will be critical. Great players understand that. I’ve seen the reactions from my teammates watching shows in the team lounge when they disagree with something. I’m a credible guy and I think people will respect that.”

Vick got some taste of what can happen when things go viral after making comments about Colin Kaepernick needing a haircut while discussing Kaepernick’s lack of a job for the 2017 season. Vick walked back those comments a few days later, but the experience doesn’t seem to have soured him on having his opinions blasted out and picked apart every Sunday this season

A perfect match would be one between him and a pack of angry pit-bulls.

I think most of us are just unfairly biased against convicted felons.

Maybe Conker can sponsor a statue of him. They seem to be a big deal among non-liberals.

"All right guys, we're just about ready to kick off here in LA. It's time for pre-game picks. Mike, who do you got?"

Vick: "Well, I don't have a dog in the fight, but if I did, I'd take the Pats."

Always controversial Fox.

It'll be interesting to see if Mike can be a informative color man. Know players Ability to explain why a play succeeded or failed, single out players making good plays and why, know formations, etc. It takes more than a notion to be a good color commentator.

It's not as easy as some may think. Takes a lot of preparation. Jim Brown tried and failed miserably. I remember all he said after a good run by a back "Great running back" or a excellent on the money pass "Great pass" things he'd repeat over and over. He lasted one game.

I think old dogs can learn new tricks. Unless they're forced to re-enact the fall of Carthage in some dumb country bumpkin's backyard.

Maybe Mike has a steeper hill to climb because of his history. Fox may accept him but will the public? I don't know if entities like Fox put feelers out to the public, if they do I don't see Mike getting good ratings. Vick has to be better than good.he has to be excellent.
