On Jets' QB Competition: Vick Is 'Going To Be The Jets’ Starting Quarterback'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Eagles running back LeSean McCoy isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

Heck, just two weeks ago he said that his two-year-old son is better than Tim Tebow.

Always outspoken, one thing that Shady claims he’s not paying attention to is the NFC East-rival Giants. In his mind, Big Blue doesn’t pose much of a threat to his team.

“I’m not paying attention to the Giants,” the two-time Pro Bowler said, according to the New York Post. “What’ve they done? Signed some guys. Big deal.”

The Giants have signed more than a few new pieces. General manager Jerry Reese has inked 26 new contracts — including re-signed players — adding such big names as Rashad Jennings, Geoff Schwartz, Walter Thurmond, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Robert Ayers.  

McCoy also has a couple of thoughts on the Jets, despite the fact that they’re in no way, shape or form rivals of the Eagles.

In McCoy’s mind, Michael Vick — not Geno Smith — should be Gang Green’s quarterback in 2014.

“He’s going to be the Jets’ starting quarterback,” McCoy said of Vick, according to the newspaper.  “He’s way better than Geno Smith. Way better. That’s no contest.”

Smith was the starter for the Jets in his rookie season, but general manager John Idzik signed Vick to a one-year, $5 million contract in March.

The two signal-callers are expected to compete for the starting job in training camp and preseason.
