McCoy was asked about the Jets quarterback situation at a charity event on Monday and as far as McCoy's concerned, the Jets don't even need to have a quarterback competition.
Of course, McCoy could be slightly biased here because he's friends with Vick and played with him for five seasons in Philadelphia. If McCoy's right though and Vick is 'way better,' that will make Rex Ryan's job of picking a starting quarterback way easier.
According to McCoy, the only thing that might keep Vick from starting is his inability to stay healthy.
"That's the big question, and that's the only thing," McCoy said. "The thing here was, he didn't lose his job -- he just got hurt and lost his job to injury. But as far as who's the better quarterback, he's way better than Geno Smith. That's obvious."
McCoy will presumably get a first-hand look at the Jets quarterback competition this fall. If Ryan hasn't decided on a starter by the final week of the preseason, there's a chance both Vick and Smith could see action when the Jets travel to Philadelphia for an Aug. 28 preseason game.
