Nobody expected Michael Vick to start a game this season for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The former Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons star was brought in to the Steelers to serve as a backup to starting QB Ben Roethlisberger, and maybe run a couple of wildcat plays once a month.
Instead, Big Ben went down injured and now Vick is the starter in Pittsburgh. However, he got off to a losing start last night and Vick was incredibly disappointed following the game.

Vick threw an incomplete pass intended for Antonio Brown on Pittsburgh’s last offensive play, a fourth-and-1 in overtime. After the Ravens kicked the game-winning field goal on the subsequent possession, Vick had a hard time getting over the pass he missed.
“That last pass will haunt me for a long time,” Vick said. “Antonio had a step.”
Vick has been in the NFL a long time, but he said the loss was among the most painful of his career.
“Probably one of the toughest losses of my career,” Vick said.
Vick didn't look too bad in all honesty. He showed decent speed to run for a couple of first downs, while completing 19 of 26 passes for 124 yards through the air, pretty much what you'd expect from him.
