Guess what? Michael Vick had about as bad a team as Romo has had and got his team to the NFC Championship Game.
And a rusty Vick, albeit healthy, got the Eagles into the playoffs three years ago despite not being helped by Andy Reid.
Yes, I think Vick is a better quarterback than Romo. But like Romo, he takes it upon himself to do more than he should. Andy Reid has a stellar back in LeSean McCoy yet refuses to use him to balance out Vick and his propensity to take a hit and turn the ball over.
But, again, Vick has done more with less than Romo has and has taken his team to the brink of a Super Bowl.
That's your logic that Vick made it to the NFC Championship one time really?
What has he done since? Not a damn thing. He's only made the playoffs a few times since then. You said Flacco isn't better than Romo which is true even though he made it to a conference championship game. Then what exactly is your reasoning for using that same reasoning to you clearly didn't apply to Flacco to Vick? If you're gonna say Vick is better than Romo because he went to a conference championship game than how can you not do the same for Flacco was has actually made two conference championship games?
Bottom line though is Mike Vick has had one good season in the NFL. That one season isn't really better or even close to as good as any of Romo's seasons he's played. You can take Romo's worst season as a pro which is probably 2008 compare it to Vick's and who wins? Romo by a long shot. In their respective careers Romo has 154 touchdown passes compared to Vick's 117. Romo thrown two more picks. He has 80 while Vick has 78. Keep in mind though Tony has thrown the ball more so of course he's gonna have more picks. Tony on his career has 20 more pass attempts. Tony has a phenomenal completion percentage of about 65 while Vick has mediocre and that's being nice completion percentage of 56. Nearly a 10 point difference. Tony also has a QB rating of 96 while Vick only has a QB rating of 80. Tony blows Vick out of the water in every single category essentially.
In short absolutely no argument can be made that Michael Vick is a better quarterback than Tony Romo. Better athlete? Of course. Better quarterback? Hells to the no.
