Former NFL quarterback and current Fox Sports analyst Donovan McNabb says the New York Jets need to stop trying to use Michael Vick in the wildcat formation because it’s “garbage,” he told the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta.
McNabb and Vick were teammates for one season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009, where the formation was used under offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Mornhinweg is starting his second season with the Jets.
McNabb says Smith and Vick would benefit from a more quarterback-friendly system that showcases their abilities more.
“Mike wants to be the starter. He doesn’t want to go in there to be the Tim Tebow of the 2012 Jets. Nobody wants that,” McNabb said.
