Michael Vick isn't humble about his impact on professional football. Quite the opposite, in fact.

The Jets quarterback may be the backup to Geno Smith, but Vick said Friday that he paved the way for players like Smith, Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick.

"I was the guy who started it all," Vick told Rich Cimini​ of ESPN.com. "I revolutionized the game. I changed the way it was played in the NFL."

Really? Vick wasn't the league's first running quarterback: Steve Young, Randall Cunningham, John Elway, Steve McNair and Donovan McNabb all played in the NFL before Vick entrered, to name a few dual-threat QBs. Cunningham and Young both rushed for more than 4,000 yards in their careers.

VIck is the NFL's all-time leading QB rusher with 5,857 yards in 11 seasons. He also has rushed for 36 touchdowns, to go with 21,489 career passing yards and 128 TD passes.
