A Look At Week 7 In The NFL

Last Week: 9-4

Overall: 59-31

Washington @ Carolina

It’s amazing how quickly fortunes can change in the NFL. A week ago, the Redskins were sitting on top of the NFC East with a 3-1 record, and though they weren’t winning pretty, they were still finding ways to pull off tough victories. A week later, while still at the top of the division, the team looks like they’re in trouble. Washington has made a change at quarterback after Rex Grossman buried the team against the Eagles in Week 6 with four interceptions. The team will now turn things over to John Beck, who will make his first start since 2007. If this team has no stability at quarterback, they’ll quickly plummet to where everyone thought they would be, the cellar of the NFC East.

Cam Newton has been great so far for the Panthers, but last week was a game that he’d like to forget. The rookie was short on electricity and big plays last week, and went through some growing pains, throwing three interceptions in a loss to the Falcons. Carolina still managed to lead Atlanta at the start of the fourth quarter, but allowed the Falcons to score 17 unanswered points.

I’m surprised that the Redskins pulled the plug on Grossman so soon. While he wasn’t playing great, he still played well enough to get them to an impressive 3-1 start. He isn’t the long-term solution, but he gives them the best chance to win right now. It’s a strange move to go to Beck so soon, especially with the team still sitting on top of the standings. I think Cam Newton rebounds this week, while Beck struggles.

Pick: Carolina

Seattle @ Cleveland

The Seahawks went into their bye on a high note with a 36-25 road win over the New York Giants, fueled by a strong effort from the defense, which forced five turnovers. They also turned in a respectable effort the week before in a losing effort to the Falcons in which they put up 28 points. Seattle’s offense has been noticeably stronger since Sidney Rice has returned from his injury.

The Browns fell to 2-3 last week with a 24-17 road loss to the Raiders. Colt McCoy threw for over 200 yards and two touchdowns, but the Browns left several special teams breakdowns doom them. They allowed Jacoby Ford to return a kickoff for a touchdown, and allowed the Raiders to score a touchdown on a fake field goal late in the game.

I don’t think Seattle is capable of sustaining the efforts that they put up in their last two games. If not for a slew of Giant turnovers, the Seahawks would have had no business competing with New York last week. I think the Browns put together a solid effort at home to get back to the .500 mark.

Pick: Cleveland

Atlanta @ Detroit

The Falcons were in desperate need of a win last week, and they put on a 17-point fourth quarter rally to get past the Carolina Panthers. Michael Turner pounded the Panther defense for 139 yards and two touchdowns, and the Falcon defense did their part by forcing Cam Newton into three interceptions. The bad news for the Falcons is that once again they weren’t able to get much out of Matt Ryan. He threw for only 163 yards, and continues to have a disappointing season.

The powerful Lion offense sputtered for the first time all season, and only managed to score 19 points in a surprising home loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Running back Jahvid Best was knocked out of the game with a concussion, and is expected to miss some significant playing time, which is bad news for the playoff hopeful Lions. Calvin Johnson was also held without a touchdown for the first time all season.

It’s going to be challenging for the Lions to succeed without Best. Teams will now be able to take their attention away from the Detroit running game, and put all of their efforts into shutting down Johnson. The Falcons get the first crack at the wounded Lions, and the opportunity to beat one of the stronger teams in the NFC would go a long way towards building the confidence of an Atlanta team that has struggled against quality opponents. Even though the Lions will be without Best, I don’t think Matt Ryan is playing well enough to win this game, and I don’t think the Falcons secondary can limit the damage that will be done by the Detroit air attack.

Pick: Detroit

Denver @ Miami

Denver fans are finally getting their wish. Tim Tebow is getting his crack at the starting job, and he’ll make his first start in the state where he enjoyed an extremely successful college career with the Florida Gators. In a strange sort of irony, the Dolphins will be even be putting on a ceremony at halftime to honor the Gator Championship team that Tebow led several years back. The Broncos haven’t made things any easier on Tebow by trading away one of his starting receivers, Brandon Lloyd.

The Dolphins are just a train wreck of a team right now. They’ve lost their starting quarterback, there’s been speculation that coach Tony Sparano could be fired as soon as Monday, and there just isn’t much that has gone right for this team in 2011. New starter Matt Moore threw for just 204 yards and threw two interceptions in his first start of the season against the Jets last week.

I think that if the Dolphins are going to get a win this season, this has got to be the game. Denver enters with a new starter at quarterback, and they’ve just dealt away one of his best weapons. The Bronco defense is still very poor, so Moore should be able to move the ball and put up points as long he keeps his mistakes to a minimum.

Pick: Miami

San Diego @ New York Jets

Record wise, the Chargers have avoided another slow start. They’re 4-1, and for the first time in several years aren’t trying to dig themselves out of an early season hole. However, they haven’t exactly been winning in dominating fashion. They’ve struggled in the last few weeks to put away teams like the Broncos and Chiefs, and even had some trouble in their season opener against the Vikings. Winning ugly is better than not winning at all though, and this is a team that typically gets stronger as the year goes on.

The Jets are a team that would love to have a couple of ugly wins after some of the struggles they’ve been through over the last month. They went through a rough stretch, losing to the Raiders, Ravens, and Patriots, and have been getting noticeably poor play from quarterback Mark Sanchez. Even in last week’s win against Miami, Sanchez was only able to put up pedestrian numbers, 201 yards and one touchdown. With a lack of support from the running game, the Jet offense is having trouble putting up points.

I expect the Jets to really bounce back this week and deliver a strong performance. They need to beat a quality opponent to get themselves right, and the Chargers are a team that they’ve matched up well against in recent years. With San Diego not playing particularly well themselves, I think they’re due for a bit of a let down performance, and I think the Jets win at home.

Pick: New York

Chicago @ Tampa Bay

The Bears were in a must-win situation last week against Minnesota, and they came through with a strong performance, taking down the Vikings 39-10. Jay Cutler threw for over 250 yards and two touchdowns, his best performance since Week 1, and the Chicago defense shut down Adrian Peterson, limiting the star running back to just 39 yards on 12 carries.

A week after getting humiliated by the San Francisco 49ers in a 48-3 loss, Tampa Bay rebounded with a huge upset victory over the New Orleans Saints 26-20. Josh Freeman came back from a terrible effort in San Francisco to play one of the stronger games in his career, putting up 302 passing yards and two touchdowns. Running back Earnest Graham stepped up and filled the void left by the injured LeGarrette Blount, and rushed for over 100 yards. It was an impressive, and badly needed for victory for the Bucs against a contender.

I think that last week’s win over the Saints was a bit of an anomaly. While Tampa Bay is certainly good enough to jump up and surprise a team like that on any given week, they aren’t talented enough to do so on a regular basis. They’ll face a much stronger defense this week, and if Jay Cutler can turn in another strong performance like he did a week ago, I like the Bears in this game.

Pick: Chicago

Houston @ Tennessee

The Texans have hit a rough spot in their schedule. They’ve now lost two in a row, and are still without their elite wide receiver Andre Johnson. Matt Schaub has struggled a bit in the last three weeks, throwing for under 250 yards in two of the last three games. Last week Houston’s offense was completely overmatched against the defense of the Baltimore Ravens. Not only did they have trouble with the air attack, but they also struggled to get anything going on the ground. They’ll now battle a division opponent, the Tennessee Titans, who are fresh off of their bye week.

When the Titans were last seen, they were taking a pounding at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Chris Johnson was once again held to under 100 yards rushing, and has only 250 rushing yards for the season. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s play has been what has made the Titans relevant so far. He’s thrown for over 1,400 yards and nine touchdowns in five games, and has brought a sense of stability to the offense.

The stakes are pretty high for both teams. This game will have a major say in the outcome of the AFC South. Both teams haven’t been playing well entering the game, but the Titans have just had their bye week to sit back and prepare for this game. I think the Texans are really missing Andre Johnson, and their defense is going to miss Mario Williams as well. Both teams will play well in this one, but I give the edge to the rested Titans at home.

Pick: Tennessee

Pittsburgh @ Arizona

The Steelers were able to sneak past the Jacksonville Jaguars last week with a 17-13 win at home. Pittsburgh jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the first half, and then went on cruise control, just barely hanging on as the Jaguars did their best to make things interesting. The good news for the Steelers last week was that running back Rashard Mendenhall finally broke out of his season-long slump, and put up 146 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Things haven’t been going well for the Arizona Cardinals. Through six weeks, they are 1-4, already three games behind the San Francisco 49ers. Quarterback Kevin Kolb seems to be getting worse each week. He began the season with a 300-yard, two touchdown effort, but since then he’s thrown just three touchdown passes and six interceptions. Now he’ll have to face one of the toughest defenses in the league.

Things aren’t going to get any better for the Cardinals this week. Facing the strong defense of the Steelers will be too much for Kolb to handle. He’ll make more mistakes, and the Cardinals will plummet to 1-5.

Pick: Pittsburgh

Kansas City @ Oakland

The Chiefs have quietly played much better football after being blown away in the first two weeks of the season. In their last game, Kansas City rallied from a 17-0 hole in the first half to take down the Colts 28-24 on the road. Matt Cassel played what was easily his best game of the season, throwing for 257 yards and four touchdowns.

It’s the beginning of a new era in Oakland. The team pulled off a shocking trade this week, landing former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer. The former top draft pick has been out of football all season, refusing to continue his career with the Bengals organization. He’s expected to step in immediately and take over as the team’s starting quarterback. Last week the Raiders pulled off of gutsy victory, finding a way to defeat the Browns at home. Special teams played a crucial role in the win, the Raiders scored touchdowns on a kick return and a fake field goal.

Palmer is going to start, but he’s going to be rusty after spending the whole season away from the game. However, a rusty Palmer is still a far better option than Kyle Boller. Even though the Chiefs have been playing better as of late, I think the Raiders have a lot of momentum and energy on their side right now, and I think they find a way to pull off another tight victory.

Pick: Oakland

St. Louis @ Dallas

The Rams have to me one of the most demoralized teams in the league right now. They’ve been placed in to such a deep hole because of their injuries and the insane difficulty of their schedule. This week they’ll go on the road to face another team that just vastly outclasses them.

Dallas put up a great effort against the Patriots last week. Their defense played one of their stronger games of the year, limiting the Patriots to just 20 points, but they did fall victim to a Tom Brady game-winning drive in the fourth quarter.

Dallas should be able to roll to a victory without much trouble this week. The Rams have been battered and beaten by their schedule, and aren’t in any position to win this game.

Pick: Dallas

Green Bay @ Minnesota

Another week, another dominating effort from Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The only remaining undefeated team in the league handled the hapless Rams with minimal effort last week, 24-3. Rodgers threw three quick touchdown passes in the first half, and that was enough to take St. Louis out of the game.

After another embarrassing loss, the Vikings have decided to pull the plug on veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb, and turn things over to rookie Christian Ponder. Things got ugly fast for the Vikings in last week’s 39-10 loss to the Bears. Adrian Peterson was only able to rush for 39 yards, and McNabb continued to perform at a mediocre level, leading to a benching in the second half.

Ponder is being thrown to the wolves here. It’s a lot to ask of a rookie to come in and perform well against an undefeated team at the level of the Packers. Green Bay shouldn’t have trouble getting to 7-0.

Pick: Green Bay

Indianapolis @ New Orleans

The Colts took another loss last week, falling in Cincinnati 27-17. Curtis Painter and the offense struggled against the tough Bengals defense. Painter threw for only 188 yards, and also threw an interception.

The Saints went into let down mode last week, allowing Tampa Bay to outplay them in a 26-20 loss. It was the second loss of the season for the Saints, and they allowed things to tighten up in what is now a three-team race for the division title between themselves, Tampa Bay, and Atlanta.

The Saints completely overmatch the Colts on paper, and coming off of a bad loss, they’ll come out in this game with a purpose. Indianapolis has given respectable efforts since Painter took over for Kerry Collins, but they just aren’t anywhere near explosive enough to contend with the Saints.

Pick: New Orleans

Baltimore @ Jacksonville

The old Ravens defense is back. This unit is playing at such a high level right now, its reminiscent of the 2000 Super Bowl team. They’re capable of shutting down high powered offenses, and winning games on their own, making the Ravens a very dangerous team. Last week they shutdown Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans in 29-14 win.

The Jaguars hung tough against the Steelers last week, and even though it was a lazy effort from the Steelers offensively, you have to give credit to Jacksonville for making it a four-point game. Blaine Gabbert threw for just 109 yards in the loss.

Gabbert is going to have his hands full against what might be the best defense in the league. The Jaguars won’t be able to put up many points against this defense, and this should be a game that Joe Flacco and the offense breaks out.

Pick: Baltimore

Happy Times In Happy Valley, Don’t Be Fooled


  • Does Mcnabb sucking last 3 years mean? 1)he always sucked, or 2) he only flourished in a coach genuis presence, 3) sucking! no. 5 is great, 4) Vikings don’t know how to use him

  • I agree with u Schiller… too many haters on here….People do not understand that 4 losses and 2 wins sitting at the bottom of a weak division is alot to be proud of. I seroiusly don’t understand why we even play these games…i think in Andy’s mind(Navy’s too) he has won 4 straight Super Bowls.

  • D-Mcnabb was never the same after that last Knee injury in 2007.. He lost that mobility and explosion he had beforehand and has been average to poor ever since.. He’s been a Good NFL QB and that’s about it , not Great, not HOF by any stretch, Just a good NFL QB who played small when the bright lights were on and never took advantage of his many opportunities to become great and to excell in the big moments and games, he just never did .. I rank him at a “B” Grade Career Wise…. and I do rank him as the Best QB in Eagles Franchise History but that doesn’t mean he’s HOF.. THe HOF is for the best of the Best and he was 1-5 in his 6 Biggest Career Games.. Enough said..

  • Good analysis Paulman.

    I supposed you would put the Hall of Famer Jim Kelly in that same league…being that he came up short on multiple occasions on the big stage?

    How about hall of famer Fran Tarketon?

    You think his accomplishments outweighs Mcnabbs?

  • Tarkenton changed the way the Position was played and had a good career over a long period of time though he never won the big one and was a fiesty leader of his teams..
    J Kelly had the fire and passion of a Champion but never did win the Big One Either, but did lead his team to 4 consecutive Super Bowl Games which means he won the AFC Championship games during that run jus tto get to the Super Bowl and really the Bills should have won one of those games…
    Both Tarkenton/Kelly belong in the HOF, with QB’s like Fouts,Moon,Marino who also never won a SUper Bowl… but QB’s like McNabb, Bledsoe, Hasselbeck,Culpepper,K Collins, all have had nice careers, but not HOF Worthy.. they just are not..

  • Good Picks Denny,
    After having a rough week last week where I went 7-6 , my Overall Season Record now Stands at 61-29

    Paulman’s Picks for Week #7

    #1) Seahawks 26- Browns 20 (Coach Pete Carrol is slowly working his magic again with this team, the Browns have secondary issues with CB Haden out, RB Hillis has been a distraction all season and QB McCoy has less Weapons at WR/TE to take advantage of a questionalbe Seahawk Secondary)
    #2) Lions 28 – Falcons 24 (Lions will rebound after tough loss at home last week vs the 49ers, I expect QB M Stafford to have a big game vs an average Falcon Defense and poor Secondary, Falcon QB M Ryan has another bad game versus this front 4 of the Lions)
    #3) Titans 26 – Texans 24 (Texans have the more talent, but injuries are catchign up and QB Shaub has lost his security blanket in WR A Johnson and has looked shaky since he’s been injured.. they also lost thei rleader on Defense in Mario WIlliams so I expect Titans RB Chris Johnson to have his best game of the Season so far and Hasselback to continue to play smart and protect the ball)
    #4) Dolphins 20 – Broncos 16 (Tebow’s starting gives some energy to the Broncos, but this team is definitely in transition and the Dolphins have to win a game sooner or later.. Probably a Special Team Play or a big Turnover wins this game and I will go with the home team)
    #5) Chargers 24 – NY Jets 19 (Chargers jump out to a nice lead only to have the Jets come back and make it close, and similar to the Eagles, the Jets just keep beating themselves and have too many distractions to win)
    #6) TB Bucs 23 – Bears 20 (Playing in London probably doesn’t favor either team, but I think the Bucs rise up with their younger and improving squad as QB J Freeman continues to make a name for himself for the right reasons as opposed to his counter part in Jay Cutler..)
    #7) Panthers 24 – Redskins 17 (Newton needs to rebound after a poor performance as does the entire Redskin team from last weeks performance versus the Eagles. Is QB John Beck the answer.. Redksins lost both LT Williams & LG Leitchsberger so expect Beck to be under heavy pressure)
    #8) Raiders 23 – KC Chiefs (Raiders will run the ball 40-50 times between RB’s McFadden and Bush, thought the Chiefs are playing better ball, they do not have the strength up front defensively to hold up for 4 quarters) and the Raiders go on to win their 9th AFC Western Divisional game in a row)
    #9) Steelers 30 – Cardinals 16 (Steelers dominate up front and force Kolb to run for his life and make some turnovers)
    #10) Cowboys 34- SL Rams 10 (No QB Bradford as the Rams continue to struggle and the Cowboys score early and often as their Offense finds a good groove looking to their match-up with the Eagles the next week)
    #11) Packers 31 – Vikings 13 (Vikings QB Ponder makes his first NFL Start and goes against a very good Packer team.. Game is over by halftime)
    #12) NO Saints 34 – COlts 16 (QB Brees coming off his worst game of the Season in last week’s losss to the BUcs, and will come out like a surgeon veruss the overmatched Colt Defense, expect big games by TE Graham and RB Sproles and the usual all around play from the Saints WR’s)
    #13) Ravens 24- Jaguars 10 (Ravens shut don the Jags anemic offense and harass their young QB Gabbert all game long.. Flacco does what he needs to do in a very workmanlike performace as the Ravens continue to rise up in the Rankings

    Byes this week are Eagles,Giants, Bills,PAtriots,Bengals and 49ers

    Enjoy the Games

  • Paul, thanks for reminding me eagles are bye, and van brocklin best qb in eagles history

  • You are right Jake, about about Van Brocklin being the best QB in Eagles History, Unfortunately, many of today younger fans have little Idea of him and those great teams of the late 50’s & early 60’s with Van Brocklin, LB’s Bednarik, Max Baughn,DL Marion Campbell, WR’s Tommy McDonald, P Retzlaff, and many others..

  • Tanto – wasn’t paying much attention till I saw the little pop shot across the bow – no Schiller is right – there is too much hating – are you blind, stupid deaf or dumb – how in the world would anyone – myself or Reid included – think we won a super bowl – in what way shape or form has anyone on this site ever implied the eagles have won a super bowl – so from where – did you pull that absolutley ridiculous statement (probably the same place your head spends most of its time – grab your ears – pull down hard, when you hear a loud popping sound and see light – its OK) – see the funny part is I get called delusional – really – you honestly and really believe that I or Andy Reid thinks the Eagles have won four super bowls –
    And where – other then voices you hear in your head – has anyone ever implied the Eagles or the fans of the eagles should be proud of a 2-4 record – really – I want to know how a mind like yours works – the fans on here are amazing – its not a glass half full/half empty argument – its the glass need to smashed into the ground or else you think it is over flowing argument..

    Congrats – you win the award for idiot of the week – I can’t believe I have to change Songs (aka Romos beeotch) name – hey Silky – you about to get to see your boy……..

  • paulman ,u said 3 words : fiesty, firey, and passion .mcnabb had none . if he woulda had them the skys the limit . ur right the injury and maybe the big contract started the down spiral

  • Paulman …how in the hell can you put Culpepper, Collins, and Bledsoe in the same sentence with Mcnabb in his prime?

    Mcnabb was top 3 only behind Manning and Brady for the first half of his pro career…..Come on guy.

    this tells me all I need to know concerning your credibility….pathetic

  • Because I can and it’s the truth Songs…
    Putting McNabb anywhere close to Manning/Brady is just foolish and proved what “Eagles McNabb Lenses” you have watch McNabb’s Career in ..
    Like I stated a 1,000 times, McNabb was a good NFL QB, but not an Elite QB, Their is simply no way and no how he’s even metnitoned in the same breath as the great ones.. the Differnece makers andReal Leaders.. No Way and No how.. If you want to reminisce about him as an Elite QB, then go ahead for you just lost whatever credibility you had on here…

  • Paulman…let’s make this clear.

    when you put records and stats on the table….Mcnabbs are better than Fran Tarketon who is in the HOF and can be compared to Jim Kelly Stats who is in the HOF…but Mcnabb is not a Hall Famer.

    On the other hand you’re comparing Mcnabb’s career to Collins? Culpepper?

    Now, if you would have said Steve Mcnair….ok…close…but Mcnabb have had more success and better numbers next to Mcnair’s even though Mcnair was throwing to much better talent and had a running game to compliment his skills.

    Brady and Manning would have been straight garbage if they were forced to throw to Pinkston and Thrash in their prime.

    Come on guy.

    I know you may hate Mcnabb but you must be crazy putting him in the same sentence with Collins and those you’ve mentioned.

    Pull up the stats and Mcnabb’s success in consecutive years and it’s not even close.

    By the way Culpepper was throwing to Moss and Chris Carter and after they were gone he turned into a pumpkin.

    Injuries slowed Mcnabb career…but his body of work leading up to the injuries can not be denied.

    He do have hall of fame numbers…and if Fran Tarketon’s corny ass is an Hall of Famer with numbers that are not even close to Mcnabb’s..Mcnabb is first ballot HoF’er..period

  • Steve McNair is a good comparison Songs.. I didn’t go thru the entire QB list who playied in the 2000’s and had success, but never winning the Super Bowl e but I am sure there are others.. Rich Gannon, Jake Delhomme, Mike Vick, Matt Hasselbeck, Jake Plummer ..
    WHen checking, what All-Pro WR’s did Tom Brady and Steve McNair have to throw to during their careers… Deion Branch, Justice CAge, Ed Bennett…
    C’Mon SOngs, you can do better than this,.. MCNabb was not and is not looked at as an Elite QB around the NFL CIrcles outside the Philly Area.. Let it go already Songs, will you…. Yes he helped tremendously of bringing a doormat franchise to not only respectability, but to Championship level play during his time in a very QB/Pass Happy System that many would succeed in (Jeff Garcie, AJ Feely and even Kevin Kolb and now Mike VIck)
    Leearn your Football Songs, there are lots of other Players,Teams & Coaches in the NFL and it doesn’t revolve around the Philadelphina Eagles my friend (who by the way still have no Super Bowl Rings yet in the modern era of the NFL)

  • His body of work leaves his 1-5 in his 6 biggest games of his career
    Plus the CIncinnati Bengal Debacle where he even didn’t know the Overtime Rules and the back-to-back annilihation by the Cowboys to end the 2009 Season.. He was a Good NFL QB, not a Great or ELite one by any stretch by any true fan of the NFL.. Forget the EAgles for a moment if you could, this McNabb was no leader, and a soft puss when it came right down to it ,as he reflected his puss HC but never demonstrated to this Fan to grab the bull by the horns and make it happen.. it wasn’t in his DNA. Sorry Songs, the truth hurts but it is what is was.. A good run nothing more, nothing less..
    ENough with McNAb balready, he’s way in the Rear-View Mirror and means absolutely nothing to the hear and now..

  • The Sad thing is, we will be saying the same thing about QB Mike Vick in a few years too.. A dynamic QB who does display much more leadership and touughness than McNabb ever did. but still has not overcome the hurdle of playing big when it counts (At least thru this his current stage of his career..) maybe he can turn it around, and win some playoff games but he will have to wait another year to 2012 to do so for this 2011 Team is not going to the Playoffs..

  • but paulman d-mac did play air guitar!

  • Yes ,Nev856 and a good call on your part,,.
    Do that garbage, adolecent crap after you win something first… ..
    Just like that time versus the Giants on the sidelines when he was run out of bounds and picks-up the phone on the bench.. What an ass..McNabb is Ass …
    (as Songs would say)

  • Songs is STILL in love with McNabb? LMAO. Get over it kid. The only reason he lasted as long as he did in Philly was because he was Reid’s boy. I’m willing to bet money that if Vick can continue to play at a high level for the next five years (which I doubt), he’ll overtake McNabb as the best QB in Eagles history.

    Reid has his flaws, but developing QB’s to play in HIS system is not one of them. If Reid would have had the opportunity to draft and mold Vick instead of McNabb, we would have AT LEAST two rings by now. Definitely.

  • Paulman — I wouldn’t say Vick hasn’t played big. He’s the first QB to ever beat the Packers at Lambeau field in the playoffs — that says something considering the history of that franchise.

  • Vickss had a nice career but needs to get his turnovers uver control

    Vick has a Career QB Rating of 80.5% and a 56% Completion rate and
    102 TD’s but a whopping 107 Turnovers (Int’s & Fumbles)
    Now he has over 5,000 Career Rushing Yards which is amazing but I am still not sold that is such a good Statistic for your QB to have. I would much rather have more passing yards, higher completion % and having the ball out of your QB hands and into your playmakers (WR/TE/RB) down the field then the QB running/scrambling and taking so many shots himself..
    But if he continues with the Eagles for the next 4-5 Season in a very QB freindly/Pass Happy System, there is no reasong that Vick will accumulate some impressive # and increase his Passing %.. It’s those damn Turnovers that he has to reduce big time

  • Sorry for my poor spelling..
