Would winning a super bowl as a back up cement Mike Vick legacy in the NFL?

Mike Vick has once again stated on national media that he revolutionized the game as a QB in the NFL. He claimed to be the one that started it all. I totally agree with Mike Vick. He is a once-in-a-lifetime QB.
Mike Vick also said winning a super bowl would cement his legacy even as a back up to Geno Smith:

After putting up arguably the best statistical game of any QB on Monday night football against Washington a few years ago... I'd say his legacy is already cemented. I don't think getting a super bowl ring as a back up will do much more, unless the Jets run a decent amount of packages with him or he contributes some other way.

Winning a Super Bowl as a backup wouldn't cement his legacy anymore than he already has, unless he is the reason his team wins it. People don't credit the #2 QB on a team for a win unless they are the ones that earn it. If anything it might be a detriment to his legacy since he might not even step on the field during the game, especially if he pushes the subject.

I disagree. I credit Tyrod Taylor for the Ravens winning the superbowl two seasons ago.

Drew Bledscoe is not remember much for his superbowl ring with New England. He was injured during the season, Brady took over, recovered until the AFC championship when Brady went out. Bledscoe won that game, but was benched for Brady at the superbowl. Only non-injured team captain to win a superbowl ring without playing a down.

1st - no. Nobody cares about the backup unless he contributes heavily.
2nd - Jets winning the superbowl with Geno Smith? Hahahahahahahahaha

and 3rd - I think he has already cemented his legacy. He was an amazing and dynamic player for over a decade.

It was a catch

Shouldn't your #2 just read - Jets winning a Super Bowl? Hahahahahaha

Standing on the sidelines does not 'cement a legacy'. Playing and being a reason for the team's success can cement a legacy. I strongly suspect Geno & Michael will swap roles multiple times during the season. The train wreck that is the J-E-T-S will continue, and the press will lap it up. The timeline fits, but I still can't comprehend that Michael Vick is near the end of his career.

I think MV ends up being the starter over GS. Just my OP.

D_BAM

Until he gets hurt, when Geno takes over. Until he sucks, again. Then Michael takes over. Until he gets hurt, when Geno takes over. Until he sucks again. Then Michael takes over. Until he gets hurt...

Easy there buddy.

Which part is not predictable? Michael proving himself superior to the former WVU QB, or Michael getting hurt during the season? Because anyone with a grasp of reality will be tempted to take those odds...

I anticipate GS getting injured again. Just my op.
