Summary:
Michael Vick of the Atlanta Falcons is overrated. Yes, the title says it
all. He does have a great game now and again, but he's far from one of
the best QB's in the game today. He was on Inside The NFL on HBO earlier
this season crying about how he doesn't get the respect he deserves. He
also said that he was just as good as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady and
deserved to be in that group of the best of the best QB's. I don't think
so.

Article Body:
Michael Vick of the Atlanta Falcons is overrated. Yes, the title says it
all. He does have a great game now and again, but he's far from one of
the best QB's in the game today. He was on Inside The NFL on HBO earlier
this season crying about how he doesn't get the respect he deserves. He
also said that he was just as good as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady and
deserved to be in that group of the best of the best QB's. I don't think
so.

What's he done? He's been in the league for 6 years and has never helped
his team get to at least the NFC Championship. But, forget about that,
because neither has Manning. However, what Manning—and Brady—have done is
constantly have good game after good game while helping their teams win
and reach the playoffs consistently.

Michael Vick has played in 9 games in 2006 as of this writing. He has
thrown 12 TDs, but 9 interceptions. When it comes to QBs, that's one stat
I pay close attention to. Yards passing mean absolutely nothing as far as
ability goes. Now, I don't want to be accused of picking on him for just
this year, so let's take a peek at past years.

In 2005, Vick threw 15 TDs and 13 interceptions. In 2004, he   threw 14 TDs
and 12 interceptions. Seeing a theme here? His passer rating   year after
year is always in the 70s—usually low 70s. His passer rating   is 73.2 so
far in 2006. Last season he finished with a passer rating of   73.1.

Sorry, but that is Manning or Brady-type numbers. While Vick might be fun
to watch at times and while he is a decent NFL QB, he's not in the upper
echelon as people tout him and that's why he's overrated.
