    Apply my about coaches to the words immediately preceding it. If they can't build a team around his unique talent after so many years, it is their failure.

    Looks like the Falcons have placed some blame on the QB coach and sent him packing.

    The defense fell apart on the Falcons, literally. They lost several key starting vets and replaced them with rookies. There were reports that Keith Brooking and Patrick Kerney were at wits end because of all the mistakes the young guys made. Maybe it will help them in the long run, but this year, the defense was the problem.

    Vick has somehow managed to become both overrated and underrated. He's never going to be a great pocket passer, but it's retarded to think he might not be able to cut it as an NFL QB. In my opinion, they mailed in the Carolina game from the beginning, (and I don't mean by resting starters.) They weren't the only ones to do it in week 17.

    The problem I see with Vick is he might be too talented. If the coaches designed the whole offense to take advantage of his talents, what happens when he gets hurt? No one else can play like he does. So now you are changing your whole game plan. I think the coaches compromise a bit and try to run a more standard NFL offense.

    On top of that, a coach that runs a non standard offense runs the risk of being ridiculed if he fails. But if he runs what every other coach in the league runs, he can blame the player for not being good enough.

    Vick will never be Tom Brady, but nobody expects him to be. Problem is, will anybody have the guts to use him to his ability?

    Vick should be used more like he was in his first season as a starter (not sure if that was his rookie season, or if he sat for a year)...more running, less throwing to/at stiff WRs...he's got a strong arm...
    That being said...maybe he's just Randall Cunningham Part 2...lots of media hype, not so much NFL greatness...
    We'll see how much he stands out when Marcus Vick and Vince Young make it to the NFL...

    Mr. Vick, meet Mr. Kordell Stewart. You're destined for being overhyped and ending up an average NFL QB.

    Schaub has a 98 QB rating, FWIW.

    Here is an example of Vick somehow being "underrated" even with all his hype.

    Schaub is a great backup QB, and could probably start somewhere. He and Volek are the most sought after backups right now. Schaub isn't in Vick's league when it comes to putting a team on his back and bringing in a W.
