Con-Vick is a lousy QB

"The Baltimore Ravens have now given up 351 passing yards to Oakland's Derek Carr, 383 to Cincinnati's Andy Dalton and a whopping 457 passing yards to Cleveland's Josh McCown. The secondary's best performance came in Pittsburgh, but that was against Michael Vick." -- The Baltimore Sun, Monday, Oct. 12, 2015

Vick managed a measly 125 yards against the same Ravens defense that allowed  the journeyman McCown to shred it for 457 (!) yards the following week. Says it all about Vick as a QB.

Expect the Chargers to stack eight in the box and dare Vick to try to throw on them. On the other side of the ball, the Chargers' coaches should be looking at the fact that the Steelers surrendered 191 yards rushing to Baltimore.

And, on special teams, the Bolts have Jacoby Jones.  'Nuff said.

Even if the Steelers win tonight, Joey Porter's Pit Bulls expect an ugly game and some bad football.

Vick has always tantalized with spasmodic flashes of flick-of-the-wrist laser throws downfield and speed of foot. But there's something wrong with Vick, and always has been.  Vick has never been an accurate passer, and he's never exhibited consistent ball protection. He fumbles too often and throws too many incompletions and interceptions. He's not a very good quarterback, and he's made a lot money conning people into believing he can be a good NFL QB.  Vick's a fraud.
