The Jets have slipped to a 1-7 start to the season after a seven-game losing streak, and coach Rex Ryan has opted to drop Geno Smith and replace him with Vick.
"Last week, I got too greedy. I was trying to play like a 24-year-old Mike Vick. You've got to play with some type of control," Vick told reporters.
The 34-year-old committed three turnovers in three quarters last week but he is set to break a run of 24 consecutive starts for Smith.
However, he has stressed the need to maintain control of his emotions ahead of making his first start in a year after joining the Jets in the summer.
