Vick, who completed 8 of 19 passes for just 47 yards and looked very rusty against the Chargers, admitted he might have been unprepared.
"Maybe I didn't prepare or I wasn't prepared, but I'll tell you what, it won't happen again," Vick said, per the New York Post.
Such is the struggle of a backup quarterback who gets little to no reps and is expected to perform on cue. Vick acknowledged he probably took the scout-team reps for granted.
"I learned a lesson last week: always stay ready, always be prepared," Vick said. "That left a bitter taste in my mouth that I wasn't able to go out and put points on the board or even help this team in any fashion. So this week has been a different work week from me (and) throughout the rest of the year, it's going to be totally different for me as far as my preparation."
If Vick had put on a show, Geno would probably be screwed to the bench at this point. But Vick's play, and subsequent admission, indicates he really didn't expect to be given a chance to win the gig -- at least not this early in the season.
