by Marty Gitlin |

Vick started three games and managed a quarterback rating of 83.1. His lone dud was a 7-for-19 effort in a bad loss to Buffalo on Monday night. The team would like more time to judge Smith to determine his potential as a franchise quarterback. Vick claims to understand that.

"I know what I signed up for," he told "I came here to get better, to help Geno get better, and help this team win football games. I wish I could have won three. But I felt like I did everything I could ... Things didn't play out the way I wanted them too.

"I'm going to support Geno. ... That's my little brother. I want him to do well. I want him to succeed and excel. It's great to see him get another opportunity. He had a sour taste in his mouth, so now he gets a chance to go out and make it right."

"That's pretty obvious - that I can do better and do more in my efforts to help this team be more successful," Bortles told the Florida Times-Union. "There are things that could definitely happen quicker and those are things I'm looking at that I can probably get off of quicker and make a quicker decision."

Making his eighth straight start, Bortles completed just 15 of 27 passes for 146 yards, no touchdowns and one interception against the Colts.
