Jonpax, I think you are off base. Vick is not a great QB. He is a great athlete, but he is a below average passer. One of the primary functions of a QB is to pass the ball.
The problem with a QB that relies on the run as much as he does, is that he'll gets hurt taking hits. A QB isn't built to take the sort of punishment that RBs take, and the chance of developing injuries/ailments in his lower body is much greater. Every time he takes off past the line of scrimmage, he becomes a running back. He puts the hopes of his franchise at risk if he gets knocked out for the season.
Your elite RB averages a much shorter career than your elite QB. The more your QB plays like an RB, the more likely he is to shorten his career.

It's time to put down the crack-pipe and step away from the keyboard.
