Vick sucks because he's trying to be a pocket passer.

His biggest games he ever had came when he was running. Redskins game and Miracle at the meadowlands. his legs were what kept defenses honest. Now they have nothing to worry about,can pin their ears back and go after him.


I dont know if this is Vick himself thats trying to be pocket passer or if its the coach,but they need to let the guy play his game,because its hurting the team. Each of the last 2 seasons he has ran less than in 2010 and his play has significantly regressed. I think hes an idiot for sitting in the pocket knowing his Oline cant block. Vick is gonna suffer alot of head injuries when his career is over because he is an idiot.

  • We need to stop fooling ourselves when it comes to Vick. Stop listening to what he says. This is the same guy who flat out lied in the face of the commissioner. Stop thinking 2010 Vick is the REAL Vick while completely ignoring 2011-2012 Vick. The reality of the 2010 Vick is he was only good in the beginning of the season because he didn't turn the ball over. By the end of that season he began to have turnover problems. Mick Vick is a turnover machine.
  • Mike Vick sucks because Mike Vick sucks! What did Vick ever win in Atlanta? Do you realize he had a 54% completion rate before he came to Philly? How many wins would that get him in today's NFL especially since he is slowing down? The old Mike Vick would never have gotten the starter's job here and unfortunately the Eagles are now stuck with a passer closer to the old Mike Vick.
  • You know something Green? The Eagles can actually win with Vick passing under 50%, but the turnovers are too much of a killer. McNabb proved that you don't have to be accurate to win in this league. You just can't afford to give the ball away to the other team. Vick's turnovers are unacceptable. The guy is fumbling when nobody touches him.
  • Turnovers are his biggest fault right now Eazy but why bother dealing with a subpar completion rate also. So many complained about McNabb and his 58% completion rate (at least he protected the ball)...why should the Eagles settle for Vick's when it had been roughly the same?
  • Unlike McNabb Vick embraces his ability to run, so if it isn't there he could at least take off. McNabb would just get sacked or throw it at peoples feet. If Vick could eliminate the turnovers, then the team would win more games.
  • Big if that hasn't happened yet and probably never will.
  • Yeah. And that's why he'll be benched.
  • Vick was in line to be the MVP in 2010.. That all went away in the Minnesota Game. Actually, the Eagles looked like Superbowl Favorites until that game in my eyes!

    Since that Tuesday evening.. Vick has been worse than Colt McCoy.. Ask yourselves; Would you rather have a guy like Colt McCoy or Kevin Kolb right now than Vick? I believe we have reached that point & that point means - we need a QB.

    Kolb & Colt McCoy both are not good QB's and they both don't have a deep ball, but they can run an offense efficiently. They don't turn the ball over & wear down the clock.

    Yes.. sadly, I truly believe that our 3rd string QB or second string QB can step in and be better than Vick

  • That Minnesota game was the beginning of the end. Not only did they expose Vick they exposed Reid. Reid hasnt adjusted since that game. Every game looks almost identical.
  • Reid's never changed. Vick was exposed and he never recovered.
