08:25 AM ET 05.25 | Michael Vick is on the wrong side of 30 in a league flooded with young, lightning-quick quarterbacks, but the Philadelphia Eagles veteran still believes he's the fastest signal-caller around. In a Friday morning chat with "The Dan Patrick Show," Vick said he could whip Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick -- or anyone else -- in a footrace. "These guys are young and they're fast and they're quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up," Vick said. "I really don't feel like there's a quarterback in the league that can beat me in a 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I'll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But as of right now I'm going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast and RG3 is fast, as well." Vick made waves this offseason when he beat LeSean McCoy in a 40-yard dash. The Eagles running back insists Vick cheated, but the quarterback laughed that off.

Maybe he should pay more attention to throwing the ball than footraces.

Considering RGIII is a cripple... he may be right.

Ah jeesh! Can't we just keep race out of it?

If Vick gets protection this season, he will be very good. If not, IR by week 2.

Besides, who wants to see a trio of fast guys race? Not me. I want to see my man Eli in a match race with someone like Big Ben R. Now that's entertainment. Drama.

That race sure wouldn't be the tortoise and the hare more like the tortoise and the sloth! :^)

I believe McCoy. I wouldn't put it past Vick to cheat in order to win a bet. He probably learned how to stack dog fights in his favor and bet on those also. I think Vick needs to see his parole officer or a shrink because that gambling urge is starting to creep up on Vick again.

Why doesn't Vick post his 40 time instead. Could it be that Vick is seeking attention? He probably wouldn't even care that he lost. Sort of like Bobby Riggs vs Billy Jean King.

All I know is that Kaepernick has been trying to improve his speed by working out with his roommate Ricardo Lockette, both Lockette and Kaepernick have hinted that Kaepernicks time has improved but they would not give a number. Lockette runs a 4.34 / 40

It's a foot race for bragging rights not the 1919 World Series.

Just a jerk looking for attention at the end of his career (which should have been over 2 years ago). Can't stand he's still on the Iggles.

Just rest your legs Mike you will need them during the regular season.
