Vick does bad again

Postby milkdudman34 » Sun Oct 10, 2004 2:50 pm

When I posted about whether to start Brees or Vick, many of you made fun of me for the post, saying to obviously start Vick. Now, I didn't think it was funny, and of course, he stunk AGAIN. Brees will have to do better than Vick, because it is almost impossible to do worse!

I've always thought that Vick is overrated. That being said, Vick is still probably a safer start than Brees.

We only give suggestions. If deep down you wanted to go with Brees, nobody is forcing you not to. I still firmly believe Vick is the better choice and was the most logical, but this is football. Anything can happen.

I also started Vick, but I start 2 QB's in my league. I am disappointed as well, but I'm also happy because he's really adding more depth to his game. He's staying in the pocket and passing. When he finds that premium blend of when to pass and when to scramble, he'll be a monster. Whether or not that is going to happen this year is up in the air.

4 Fumbles by Vick... nice... He has also been sacked like 5 or 6 times.

His real life performance is even worse than his fantasy one. He was sacked 6 times, fumbled 4 times, threw an interception, and played poorly as a passer. In the final drive when the falcons could have tied it he got sacked twice in a row on the 20 yard line, fumbling once and turning it over.

Is the reason why he fumbled because the line can't block worth crap? Or was he just holding the ball too long?

After all those sacks/fumbles I wonder if they're gonna tell him to run it more.

Man I wished I had gotten into that draft, but I had a problem with my Java, and couldn't get into the draft until round 7. After such picks as Vick in round 3 and Boldin in round 5. I didn't predraft because I fully expected to make it, and Vick is just massacreing me in that league. Throw in Deuce and Henry and Steve Smith, and you can see why I am on my way to 0-5.

Damn, those 3 TD's last week caught me off guard, but Brees already has 2 TD's midway into the 2nd quarter... talk about unexpected.
