Is Vick better than Mcnabb was in his prime here ?


  Looking at Mcnabb the last 3 or 4 years leaves a bad taste in a lot of people mouth.  The last 2 Cowboy games especially.  But the bottom line is hes won a lot of games here and is probably the best Eagles QB ever.  His Eagle teams had a lot of great wins and put up a ton of points with some really shitty receivers. Unfortunately he and the Eagles came up short in big games, A LOT. 

One can argue that despite Vick being over 30, he is in his prime. Hes still fast and is passing as good as ever. 
No question Vick is a better player than Mcnabb is now, but what about 2004 Mcnabb ? That version of Mcnabb never turned the ball over and put up crazy numbers throwing the ball to a also in his prime Terrell Owens. Mcnabb was a lot tougher and more durable than Vick and made his own share of spectacular plays with his legs and arm.

Vick is a great playmaker right now.  Hes more accurate than Mcnabb ever was, but also more careless. When healthy he really is a human highlight film. Vick also is dead serious about the game. He never laughs on the sideline or in the huddle and seems to always take the blame on himself when the eagles lose. Something Mcnabb never did. He *seems* to thrive in the big moments, but realistically he did choke a little bit himself when he threw that totally unnecessary ball to riley cooper in the green bay playoff loss.

So its a tough call-----I think at this point I would have to go with Mcnabb. He did a lot more with a lot less. He did have TO one year but before that it was Westbrook, Chad Lewis---and who ?    Obviously if Vick wins a super bowl here that will change but as of right now I will choose Mcnabb. Warts and all.
