Michael Vick

I Want to Stay In Philly

But I Understand If I Get Shipped Out

He may have lost his starting job, -- and there's talk he could be out in Philly next year -- but Eagles QB Michael Vick says he "would love nothing more" than to stay with the team that gave him his 2nd chance.

A rep for Vick tells TMZ Sports ... Mike knows his days in the City of Brotherly Love may be numbered -- but he still feels extremely grateful to the organization for allowing him to resuscitate his career in 2009 following his stint in prison.

In fact, we're told Vick is genuinely happy for his replacement Nick Foles -- and is taking pride in mentoring the young QB.

Of course, Vick lost the starting gig after suffering a hamstring injury this year -- and Foles has been crushing it ever since he took over.

We're told Vick -- who's 33 years old -- isn't even considering retirement -- his rep tells us Mike is confident he can play in the league for at least another "3 to 4 years."

There were a bunch of dogs that wanted to "stay round around" but Vick "shipped them out" when he murdered them.

Still wasn't right. I have an idea. Do you have a pet dog, cat, whatever? Let me come over and throw it off a balcony and see if you still say, "It's only a dog". Just because they weren't your dog's doesn't make it right. And he didn't just kill them, he TORTURED THEM. So, no, no slack.

Mr. Vick, you are STILL and ALWAYS WILL BE an animal abuser and an animal killer. You did NOT deserve a 2nd chance AT ALL. The true you will come out again one day, then everyone will see you NEVER changed.

You know what...as long as he doesnt retire and start fighting dogs again...I'm all cool with it ...He definately has made enough money that if he wasn't stupid he should hava nice cushion....He earned his way back into the NFL after his prison stint...and if football is part of American society then I suppose one could say he has contributed by mentoring Foles...that being said...He should still get mauled by a pack ghost pitbulls...
