To people who want Vick to start

Michael Vick is NOT the answer. Period. There seems to be a small rise in people wanting Vick to start over Kevin Kolb. It is completely insane to think Vick can start and be a good quarterback for us.

Vick career stats is: 936/1,733, 53.7 completion percentage, 11,591 yards, 6.7 yards per attempt, 72 touchdown, 52 interception, 75.9 QB rating. Number of interception is good, but everything else is crap.

He has started 67 games in his career. How many 300 yards games Vick had? Two. Same exact number as Kolb, with 65 more chances to do so.

He never had a single 3,000 yard season. His best single reason yards total is 2,936 yards. Oh, and just to note, to get 3,000 yards in a full 16 game season, you have to throw 187.5 yards a game. Vick cannot even get that.

He threw 20 passing touchdowns just once, with his highest total being that number twenty. His second highest touchdown total is 16, in 15 games no less. 2004, he started 15 games and threw 14 passing touchdowns - less than one a game. 

Discounting last season with the Eagles, his best QB rating for a season is 81.6. All other season, it was 78.1 or lower. 

His YPA never reach that high. He hit 7.0 or above just twice in his career a season, including a crappy 6.2 YPA and 6.4 YPA in 2005 and 2006, respectively.

Vick is insanely inaccurate. He never finish higher than a 56.4 completion percentage. Ever. One of the biggest knock on McNabb was that he was not an accurate quarterback. What was his worst completion percentage in a season? 57.5% - a full point ahead of Vick's best season.

Vick also makes receivers look bad. We all know Roddy White is a good receiver, right? Good. Roddy played with Vick for two seasons. In those two seasons, White gather a total of 59 catches, 952 yards, and three touchdowns. In the following season, when Vick was in jail for dogfighting, White had 83 catches for 1,202 yards and 6 touchdowns. All that while getting thrown to by Bryon Leftwich, Joey Harrington, and Chris Redman.

Vick is proven to suck at passing. Period. End of story. He will make our offense looks completely horrendous and inept. I never, ever want to see him in the starting lineup for a game. Ever.
