New York Jets backup quarterback Michael Vick admitted that he should’ve taken his scout team snaps more seriously before Sunday's game in San Diego, which might have made him ill-prepared to face the Chargers. Vick was ineffective after entering the game in the second half in relief of ineffective starter Geno Smith, going 8-for-20 passing for 47 yards. The Chargers walloped the Jets 31-0. “I felt like I, for some reason, being a quarterback in his 12th year, sometimes you to take things for granted,” Vick said Wednesday. “I think I took the scout team for granted.” Earlier Vick said, “Maybe I didn’t prepare or I wasn’t prepared, but let me tell you it won’t happen again.” But later, he backtracked, saying, “I didn’t say I wasn’t ready because of the [scout team] snaps.” Vick, a starter throughout his career up until recently, said he splits scout team reps with third-stringer Matt Simms.
