Never heard of him.

Django January 11 2012 9:26 PM EST

Disappointing season.

Demigod January 11 2012 9:28 PM EST

I think he should host this year's Puppy Bowl.

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] January 11 2012 10:05 PM EST

Way overrated imo.

I'd rather talk about Tim Tebow, a good Christian in football, that's what we need :)

Goku January 11 2012 11:09 PM EST

tebow is tomorrow

Demigod January 11 2012 11:16 PM EST

So now we're talking about crying and Eskimo kisses?

Good when he catches defenses off guard, like when he first came into the league and also when he got out of jail. Once defenses figure him out, he's mediocre.

i commend CB for keeping this topic strictly football

Mikel January 12 2012 9:25 AM EST

Zhego, I don't think Tebow is all that great, but the NFL is going to make sure that he makes it to the Superbowl cause the NFL is all about making money and a SB of Tebow vs Rodgers/Brees would generate the highest ratings ever seen.

Mikel January 12 2012 9:27 AM EST

OH and back to the topic at hand. Vick can be good, but his style (and body size) get him hurt to often and he's not as good as he/everyone else thinks.

Vick just isnt what he used to be and never will be, its what happens when you get old and play in the NFL...if he was and always had been a pass first QB, he could prolly go for as long as say Peyton Manning, but he has taken hits like a running back, and most RB's careers aren't half as long as QB's...

And Mikel, Tebow is still just a rookie...Give him time to get situated, fully learn their Offense, get comfortable with the offense and his receivers, and he will get better...

But it is nice, among all the thugs to see someone setting a very good example, Christian or not...That is, until he does crazy stupid, then people will say "See! I told you God isn't real!" :)

He was overrated before he went to prison too. He was never nearly as good as people made him out to be.

Michael Vick: First inductee into the Madden Hall of Fame.

Funny thing is, I remember an interview I read with the people who make the Madden NFL games, and back when Vick was early in his career they actually had to scale his speed down because it 'broke' the game. Apparently if his speed was accurately represented (relative to the speed of other players) his was basically unstoppable...

Goku January 12 2012 12:29 PM EST

those of you saying he's overrated realize in 2010 he had 676 rushing and 3000 passing yards right? down year this year but due to injury not play

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] January 12 2012 12:45 PM EST

2010 and 2002 are the only years he's had moderately positive tds-turnovers, so yea I think he's very overrated.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] January 12 2012 12:50 PM EST

Almost every season Aaron Rodgers has had over 4k passing yards when he played every game, going 2:1 TD:INT in his worst year, his first, this regular season he was 45:6... so yes, Vick = Overrated.

Goku January 12 2012 12:53 PM EST

Vick is not Rodgers tho. Rodgers is the best QB in the league is Vick overrated because Rodgers is so good?

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] January 12 2012 12:59 PM EST

Only 2/7 seasons having a higher than +5 td-turnover makes him overrated

To be honest I'm just waiting for the Timmy Tebow thread ;P

(someone please add Tebow to the dictionary :) )
