Reeves was gone and Jim Maura was the HC in 2004. What was so obvious that Vick was better than Schab? Vick had won a couple of playoff games by that time and the Falcons won the NFC South and went to the NFC Championship game that year (2004) and went to his second Pro-Bowl.
I think Vick is a tool but I don't think anything was "obvious".
My eyes told me, I forgot when Shaub played but I remember seeing him play and thinking, wow this guy can actually throw. The time they won all those games, they had a running tandem with Vick included, that one sided type of offense can easily be stopped in the NFL.
You could make the case that because Tebow won all those games with the Broncos and won a playoff game that he should be a starter too, but only a fool would say stupid things like that.
