Michael Vick received a lot of criticism this past season, slumping to a not-so-good season filled with injuries and struggles after playing amazing in 2010.

According to the Reading Eagle, Vick responded to critics, also thinking that they have been using personal shots against him as well.

“[A]t some point I probably feel like it’s personal shots being directed towards me for holding the ball too long and certain things when that’s not the case."

However, Vick still lived up to the criticism and took responsibility of it.

“I accept the responsibility for everything,” Vick said.  “I feel like my sole responsibility is this team. We’re going to go as I go.  If I’m not on the field, then I’m not helping this team in any shape, form or fashion.

“The turnovers, that’s my responsibility.  That’s my responsibility to orchestrate the offense and make sure the team is well put together and suited and ready to play on Sundays.  I understand the responsibility and the role that comes along with being a quarterback, and I accept it.  Sometimes I just don’t accept people saying things and really not knowing what they’re talking about.”

Vick has struggled since he got his big $100 million contract before the year began, and didn't necessarily helped people on their Fantasy Football Depth Chart during fantasy football season.

He played 13 games last season, going 7-6. He also threw for 3,303 yards along with 18 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, finishing with a 84.9 rating.

Vick looks to find a rebound year heading into the upcoming season.
