Completely disagree. Vick is a great athlete who can throw the ball. RGIII is a great athlete that is also a good QB. He has more than just a strong arm, he is smart, accurate and composed. I wouldn't describe Vick as any of those.

I don't think Vick could run the Zone Read Option as often as RGIII does and make the right decision as often as he does. He would want to keep it and make the big play every time instead of taking the 4-5 yard gain the defence is giving the RB.


I think he would have done that earlier on in his career more but now he runs less because he already has a long injury history and doesn't want to expose himself to big hits.

The problem with Vick has always been that he is not a very intelligent qb capable of reading defenses and making the correct adjustments pre-snap to adjust the offence.

But then again Cam Newton isn't the brightest guy either and he runs the option pretty well. So I think Vick could also do well in a similar system having matured and realized he only has a certain amount of years left as a starting qb and realizing finally perhaps that he has to play smart.

No one respects Vick's throwing ability. Can't run the option with 8 in the box every play.

The Colts are playing fantastic ball on both side of the ball right now.

Funny to think that there could be 3 teams in the playoffs with rookie QB's. They could all do some damage once there, too.

It says Flacco is 4/8 for 34 yards, so it's not like he hasn't played.

Down go the cattle! Thank you Indianapolis! As long as the Pats can win today we get the bye. Sure the #1 seed would be nice but can't complain about a first round bye to get Gronk, Edelman, Welker and the o-line all fixed up

No they don't.

They sure do. They beat Seattle and San Francisco already this year, as well as a tie with the latter.

The fact that they beat Arizona twice doesn't mean much.

No they don't. They beat Seattle in St. Louis, before Seattle started becoming a force. St Louis does not stand a chance in this game.

You're right. It's physically impossible for any team not in navy blue and lime green to win an NFL football game in the state of Washington.

Love the cockiness by you guys.

Not saying the Rams are gonna win. But they are going to put up a tougher fight than you think.

Wilson sacked for the 3rd time today.

The Rams could hold the Seahawks scoreless in a quarter for the first time since the 3rd quarter against the Bears. That was 13 quarters and 1 OT period ago.
