He's not worth the contract, he is an exceptional difference-maker in real life, but the reason he got such a massive contract is because of what he does for the Falcons money-wise.

Ridiculous. Lowest passer rating and completion percentage for a Pro Bowl quarterback EVER. Has never led his team to even the NFC Championship. So unbelievably overrated.

^^ Nobody can deny the piss poor QB stats, but I don't think the pro-bowl has ever been all stats.

Vince Carter hasn't had a great season since his injuries started but he still gets the votes each year because he's entertaining to watch. And thats why Vick is in there.

Agreed, Ironhorse. Too many people seem to confuse passer rating with quarterback effectiveness.

And, there's no way to overestimate what he brings to marketability of the franchise.

He was only drafted in 2001! "never led his team to the NFC championship!" haha thats ridiculous. In his 2 full seasons he has been to the divisional championship and now has a 12-3 record. He may be overrated fantasy wise, but you cant argue with his success.
