"A lot of football people rightfully question his credentials as a pocket passer," one AFC general manager said last week. "You can't criticize any other part of his game,

Yes, you can. Watch how he holds the ball when scrambling. He doesn't have his arm held high threatening to pass, nor does he tuck the ball and protect it from defenders. No, Vick holds the ball waist high, in one hand, away from his body. Football fundamentals folks; he lacks them. There is a reason why Vick fumbles so much, because he doesn't protect the ball. This is not the kind of techniques that coaches wait till the NFL level to teach, yet Vick still doesn't do it. So if you're the Falcons, what you've got is a QB who doesn't protect the ball and likes to dance around with the opposing pass-rush alot. That's a game losing turnover waiting to happen.

lol hahahaha you are a comic genius, even though you probably weren't intending to be. I agree with your whole post, but loved the portion above.

I really like the fact that he now recognizes his own mistakes.

It'll be interesting to see how this year goes. This will be the first time he's playing in the same scheme for a 2nd year. Though I don't think it will be until next year that we'll see things come to fruition if they do.

A lot of people seem to forget in the 2nd half of the 2002 season he was turning into a decent passer. In the final 8 games he was averaging about 230 yards a game.

We have yet to really see him develope in any kind of system really.

Yes - Ron Mexico is a fine upstanding role model. ;-D
