    GOOD for a laugh...............Is Michael Vick a HOFer............?

    I saw this headline and though WTF..? Are you kidding me and is this writer serious.........

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl...5ZT?li=BBnbfcL



    Lamar Jackson's idol growing up and has kept in touch. Lamar thinks so ...... so it must be true.


    Vick has ZERO SB wins, O MVPs of the league, JUST 4-Pro bowls career passer rating of 80




    YEP, real HOF material.

    I followed his career but like Vick, it was 5 minutes of fame. One thing though, that 5 minutes was longer than it took to contract the reason Ron Mexico came into existence........

    Let's be realistic instead of close minded.

    THERE WAS NEVER A QB LIKE MIKE VICK UNTIL HE CAME ON THE SCENE. Period. He completely changed the position and how defensive coordinators had to plan for him. ATL was a force and, yes, he didn't win a SB but there are many other QB's in the HOF that haven't either.

    He's not a first ballot HOFer but he is a HOFer.

    He should never have been let come back and play in the NFL. Fucking dog killer. piece of shit. no way he should ever be considered a H.O.F. player.

    Cunningham did it just as well and he didn't torture anything along the way

    I don't think Cunningham's impact was a prolific as Vick's. Yeah, I know he did a bad thing(s) - he paid for it...

    Respectfully disagree strongly Berm

    Like Blitz said Randall Cunningham "the human highlight reel" preceeded the Vick era ....... Vick was a speedster and a fine athlete that depended on his running skills

    Both had 15 years or more in the league

    Cunningham......207 TDs .... 134 INTs ..... 29979 yards ........81.5 rating ........ 4928 rushing yards.....35 TDs
    Vick..................133 TDs........88 INTs......22864 yards..........80.4 rating..........6109 rushing yards.....36 TDs
    J. Winston..........121 TDs.......88 INTs...... 19737 yards..........86.9 rating......... 1044 rushing yards.....10 TDs in just 5 years........just to show how the league has evolved

    Vick only threw for 20 TDs twice and topped 3000 yards only twice and all of those years he did it were barely over the mark

    and I don't ever remember the 2001- 2006 Falcons as a force.. a farce maybe........haha

    2006 7-9-0 ........3rd -- NFC South
    2005 8-8-0 ........3rd -- NFC South
    2004 11-5-0...... 1st -- NFC South
    2003 5-11-0...... 4th -- NFC South
    2002 9-6-1 .......2nd -- NFC South
    2001 7-9-0.........T3rd----NFC South

    He blew what could have been a HOF career for someone with his physical gifts
    He was the fastest QB we ever saw ........but it still wasn't fast enough to outrun the law or public opinion

    That is my football assessment of Mike Vick

    Myself as a person who spent a portion of my early life working with over 110 dogs prepping them for Police work, bomb, drug & alcohol detection, protection work and later fund raising for service dogs to be matched with people in need ............... I say Mike Vick you were a good athlete .....human being...not so much

    i am not taking anything away from what Vick was when he joined the league and i am tossing out the off field stuff. A comparison of the two in their early years is very tough. Cunningham's early years...what that guy did with a ball in his hands just blew me away. I loved watching him play; one of the most amazing athletes i ever watched on an NFL field. But, he also was smart enough to re-invent himself into more of a passer later in his career and he did pretty good. But when he was young...wow, the guy was just amazing. When Vick came out of VPI, i siad, this is the next RC....both were amazing athletes in different era's of the game and both were fun as hell to watch early in their careers. I won't pick one over the other...why do that...stupid...i enjoyed watching both.

    but....Vick was not around long enough to deserve HoF. Right or wrong...argue how you want...but his career did not merit HoF status.

    Vick was a RB playing QB
    Cunningham was a Punter playing QB
    Stewart was a WR playing QB

    Brady was just playing with himself

    Kordell as a QB = 90 yard TD pass
    Kordell as a RB = 80 yard TD run
    Kordell as a P. =. 73 yard punt


    NOT bad for a guy who gets a bad rap.............. And forgotten how good he was.
