And he doesn't play defense, so his individual playing had no bearing on those numbers (well maybe the points, afterall, he does generate a lot of turnovers).
A study looking at what happens to a team's defense when the starting QB goes down due to injury. Turns out, the defense usually isn't effected much by it, so if anything there is reason to believe Vick had nothing to do with the defensive collapse. (Which of course begs the question, how much did he have to do with the wins as the defense put itself back together this year).
