    It has always amused me the down right vitriol directed at Vick. I know none of you came up in Dog fighting culture and that's cool. But it exists. Vick was wrong for what he did and he paid for it.

    To see people who want him basically killed for dogs........... There is a screwed up sense of justice. I have a pit puppy who I love, but I'm not gonna kill or even hurt a HUMAN over him.

    Tap the brakes a little

    Yea its beyond silly how these holier than thou people think. Appalled by what Vick did but then turn around and want to do the same thing to him.

    The man paid the price for what he did and learned from it.

    Twitter means nothing. Vick was a tremendous athlete - one of the (if not "the") most athletically gifted QBs the NFL has ever seen. But he was not the QB Dak is. And I don't say that because I believe Dak is so dramatically good that others can't compare, I say that because Vick's ability as a QB didn't not match his pure athleticism.

    Clearly you're talking Super Bowls only.. because there was a time when the QB was regularly the opne of the leading rushers for every team.. Those QBs were not just run first.. They were run second, third and fourth. But yeah.. very different game back then.

    Can you name a run first QB prior to the Super Bowl era that won a championship? Back in the earlier days of football there was a lot of running but I can’t think of a team in any era that ever won a championship with a QB that did it mostly with their legs. Michael Vick and Lamar Jackson are the two greatest running QBs we’ve ever seen at the NFL level and Randall Cunningham wasn’t far behind. Bobby Douglas was a great running QB for the Bears back in the day and none of them won a championship. The best running QB to win a Super Bowl was Steve Young but he was a great passer and he threw a SB record 6 TD passes in the Super Bowl.

    all I know is vick was hella fun to watch. i can’t remember the last QB i would solely watch the game for. his speed was demonic. Lamar jackson doesn’t capture my attention like vick did.

    Remember Romo making Laurent Robinson a legit receiver

    Right, Robinson was nothing prior to coming to the Cowboys and nothing after he left the Cowboys. He had less than half as many catches in Jacksonville and only 252 yards the following season.

    Absolutely not. Vick was easily contained by O's such as SFs. His success had ended by the time he went to prison, and only lasted a few games when he came back. He then went back to the same ol' tired routine of running the ball every play. His 2nd year in Philly he was terrible.

    Nobody is comparing Marino and Elway to Vick, they are comparing him to Dak. Further, I’m glad arguably the best pure passers the game has seen in this context, as Dak fans like to talk about checkdown Charlie’s completion percentage when comparing him to Vick, meaning across “generations” while Elway and Marino, were career 50 percentile throwers on completion percentage, meaning where Vick was.

    Nobody said they were. Regardless it’s still a stupid comparison. Michael Vick compares to Lamar Jackson.

    If a team plans to stop receivers how is that not also planning to stop Dak? I'm also wondering what the blitzing is all about.

    Vick? why Vick? He is one of the most overrated qb's of all time. People were just enamored of his running. I think he won one playoff game.
