Yeah, Vick is to football what JFK was to politics. Will be remembered more for great promise and potential instead of actual accomplishments.
And lazy McNabb let Vick beat him out of his job.
I don't think it's a secret that it was only until a couple seasons ago where the light seemingly came on for Vick as a passer. What he'll always be remembered for are the plays he made with his feet, not his arm.

Yes Vick does have rushing yards and rushing TDs. But he also has a boatload of missed games which kills a team but doesn't show up as a stat.
- After the 2010 NFL season ended, Vick set the record for the most rushing yards by a Quarterback with 4,948 rushing yards.
- On November 15, 2010, Vick became the first player in NFL history with 300 passing yards, 50 rushing yards, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game. Vick also became the first player in NFL history to have three passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in the first half of a game.
- In 2006, Vick became the only quarterback in NFL history to rush for over 1,000 yards during the regular season.
- In 2006, Vick set the NFL record for most yards per carry in a season with 8.4.
- Vick (1,039 yards) and Dunn (1,140) became the first QB/RB tandem in NFL history to each go over the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the same season. They became the fourth set of teammates in league history to each have 1,000 or more yards.
- Made his third Pro Bowl in 2005 as he passed for 2,412 yards and 16 touchdowns in addition to leading all NFL quarterbacks with 597 rushing yards and six scores.
- Named to the second Pro Bowl of his career after leading the Falcons to their third division title in team history and breaking numerous NFL and team records in 2004.
- Set an NFL postseason record for a quarterback with 119 rushing yards in the 2004 NFC Divisional playoff win against the Rams.
- Became the first quarterback to throw for more than 250 yards and rush for over 100 yards in the same game in Denver (October 31, 2004).

"Weak right 40 gut. Yum! Yum! How bout that one baby!"
But his career record is 53-37-1. (Not that good, but whatever)
When he isn't injured, Vick is good/great QB.

Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
Ha, so this shows you what a joke the Pro Bowl is:
So essentially he had 3000 total yards and 22 total TD's?Made his third Pro Bowl in 2005 as he passed for 2,412 yards and 16 touchdowns in addition to leading all NFL quarterbacks with 597 rushing yards and six scores.

A bad plan well executed may work. A good plan badly executed will always fail.
There's a quarterback in the Hall of Fame who only had a top 10 QB rating one year of his entire career. He also threw more interceptions than touchdowns in all but two seasons.

Anyway, I wonder how Vick would have done if someone like Reid was his coach from day one.
I do think that in a way, the increased emphasis on getting to the QB via the blitz has allowed QB's with great vison and football brains (Brady, Manning) to amass passing yards because they know how to take advantage of the one on one match ups one finds when teams blitz. They blitzed less before guys like Buddy Ryan went nuts with new defensive schemes specifally designed to knock out the QB.

I think people that underrate the importance of converting 1st downs by rushing will always underrate the ability of a 'running' QB.
