2011 D.A. Football — Week 6.

Mike Vick: The D.A. Years.

I feel it’s time to pile on.  Why not?  In the midst of a very troubling stretch for Philly sports teams, perhaps it is time to focus on the quarterback.  Michael Vick’s career, even without his prison sentence, is something of a marvel.  I don’t know if there is any precedent for an erratic, scrambling quarterback having the type of year Vick had in 2010. (Randall with the Vikings?)  Of course, now in 2011, you have to wonder if Vick is reverting back to his old form.  His team seems to dictate his decision-making.  The worse things are around him, the worse his traditional QB stats become.  So, has Vick become Falcons Vick?  Hardly.

We forget exactly how inconsistent Vick was in Atlanta.  His hideous completion percentage and suspect TD/INT numbers were hidden behind incredible highlight plays and catchy commercials.  The last few weeks Vick has contributed some back-breaking turnovers to the Eagles’ plight, but he hasn’t quite hit true D.A. status.  If the award had been around for his whole career, though, Vick would have his share of hardware.

Vick’s signature D.A. Game came in 2005.  In an October match-up against the Jets, the Falcons actually won the game 27-14, but Vick was terrible.  Whether this was all luck, a reflection of how terrible the Jets were, I have no idea.  Vick ran for two 1-yard TDs, but through the air he was 11 of 26 for 116 yards and had 3 INTs.  It all added up to the only negative adjusted yards per attempt game of Vick’s entire career, but the Jets’ QB combo of Vinny Testaverde and Brooks Bollinger could not capitalize on the mistakes.  At the end of the day, Vick got the win, but piled up about 40 D.A. Fantasy points.
