Great GD article. Someone who can see the CON-vick-T for what he is, not what his thug loving fans want to see.

"He's a decent player, but I don't even have him in the top six quarterbacks in the league right now."

"That's not elite."

"Vick is not an elite quarterback."


I'm not the biggest stat person in the world, but they do give you an idea how good a player is. Let's look at how Vick compares to the six quarterbacks I believe are the elite quarterbacks, ranking ahead of Vick on my list.

These are career numbers:

Completion Percentage

Drew Brees: 65.2
Peyton Manning: 64.9
Aaron Rodgers: 64.4
Philip Rivers: 63.7
Tom Brady: 63.6
Ben Roethlisberger: 63.1
Michael Vick 55.3

Do you see the drastic drop-off? All of the "elite" quarterbacks complete more than 63 percent of their passes. Vick is completing just 55.3 percent of his passes. Not only is that not elite, it's dreadful.

Yards Per Attempt

Philip Rivers: 8.1
Ben Roethlisberger: 8.0
Aaron Rodgers: 7.9
Peyton Manning: 7.6
Tom Brady 7.5:
Drew Brees: 7.3
Michael Vick: 6.9

Quarterback Rating

Aaron Rodgers: 98.4
Philip Rivers: 97.2
Tom Brady: 95.2
Peyton Manning: 94.9
Ben Roethlisberger: 92.5
Drew Brees: 91.7
Michael Vick: 80.2

Are you starting to get the picture?

Vick is just not in the same league as these guys. Vick's career quarterback rating is almost below 80, which would put him in some very terrible company. Vick's not even in the top 50 all time in quarterback rating, yet he's one of the best players in the league?

As Chad Johnson would say, "Child, please."

As for his former team, the Atlanta Falcons, I believe they're better off with young Matt Ryan as their franchise quarterback. Ryan, who completes more than 60 percent of his passes, is a much better leader and is more accurate. He also isn't injury prone, which Vick is.

Ryan makes his skill guys better.

Take Roddy White, for example. White caught 50 passes, three for touchdowns, in two seasons with Vick as his quarterback. Since Ryan has been his quarterback, White has caught 85, 85 and 115 passes, scoring 28 touchdowns, in each of the last three seasons with Ryan at the helm.

Maybe that's because Ryan actually plays quarterback. Ryan doesn't look to run all the time, he uses his skill players.

Bottom of Form

The fact is, running quarterbacks just aren't successful in this league. Teams eventually catch up to it and the quarterback usually gets hurt way too often. Last year was Vick's best year. It's not a coincidence that it was also the fewest rushes in a season by him as well.

Fact is, until Vick puts up elite numbers consistently, plays well in the playoffs and proves he doesn't have to rely on his legs all the time, he can't be called "elite."

And he sure as hell can't be called the best player in the league.

Do people not realize that in Atlanta, VICK was the offense? Roddy White admitted to being a bum and had butter fingers. You know you are in trouble when Alge Crumpler is your best receiver.

The bleacher report is one of the most credible sources of information on the web. If they said it, it is likely true. They are not at all biased on that site.

Is that your picture in your avatar. You were kinda cute when you were that age. I'm assuming you were much younger then. I'll bet you've grown into a fairly attractive young man.

Ummm, you're not gay by any chance, are you? Just thought I'd ask. Never know when someone like me might get lucky.(Blushing)

BTW, Mr. Vick is not such a bad man. Any man as physically built and as gorgeous as Michael certainly isn't all bad.(Yuuuuummmmmy)

Don't fall into the same trap as all of these "Deranged Beast Lovers" and categorize yourself as a hater.

Looks like one of the most profitable franchises in all of sports thinks Mike Vick is plenty elite! I guess they don't listen to internet tough guys like poor neutral who is slitting his wrists with the thought that Mike Vick is the only player in NFL history to sign two contracts worth $100 million dollars.

That would be jimmy, aka USA COX, ConVICK T, or any other host of identities the Flava Flave hating racist is using. I'll link up some of her posts that she been trolling on my hometown forum. What's funny is the little closeted maggot, is UNABLE to make a post without a homosexual reference.....ever. And to think back about all the whining the little maggot use to post about "trolling". I guess it's my fault for beating the little racist maggot down so many times.

What's even more entertaining is that the lil' racist maggot is too ashamed to use his favorite racist moniker USA ROCKS. We tore that from his little pathetic racist maggot hands. Oh well, lil' jimmy is still unemployed and still very much unhappy, which makes normal people happy.

The Eagles will learn the veracity of these facts in time. The dog killer will go down due to injury sometime in the early part of the season.

And this is for two reasons:

1. He is too stupid and simple minded to become a pocket passer. He knows his passing skills are far below other elite QB's in the league and his desire to "run" is far too innate to defy.

2. Due to number 1 and also due to his inability to now take steroids due to random drug testing (probationary requirements), he is just a frail little man. Remember the rib fiasco when he got up wincing and crying like a littlebitch when 2 Redskins put a hit on him?

And his previous injuries, even while using steroids, have been numerous:

"Vick has played 16 full games just once in his career (2006). He’s missed starts in every other season and this season is likely to end up the same way."

Here's another one of my lame azz pronotications from back in '10. As you can probably tell I'm pretty f88ked up individual.
