Injuries and McNabb and Vick

    Much is made of Vick's inability to stay healthy because he runs so much ... and also because he hasn't won a title yet.

    McNabb also hasn't won a title, he likes to run, but by season's end, he'll have missed more games than Vick.

    Statistically, McNabb was having a great year. But if you're a GM, would you rather have McNabb or Vick?

    Neither has won a title, though McNabb has been to a Super Bowl. McNabb is 2-0 (i think) against Vick in the playoffs (though both wins WERE in Philly).

    It's tough to compare teams - PHilly has always had a beastly defense while Atlanta ... yeah, you can look up how bad they have been.

    The games were in Philly because Vick can't get homefield advantage for his team because he's mediocre.

    Ahh yes. Vick has lost three straight games so A_F is now passive aggressively stoking the fires by saying vick is good because, well, he's healthy.

    Well goddamn I guess you must think Brett Favre is the greatest player ever.

    Ladies and gentlemen, give a big Atlanta welcome to your 2007 starting quarterback MATT SCHAUB!!!!

    He just better be healthy on Dec. 10. I didn't spend $$$ for nosebleeds at Candlestick to see Jeff Tedford's Next Flameout.

    For that matter, A_F, would you rather have Vick, McNabb, or Aaron Brooks?

    I mean, when healthy, Brooks gives his team a chance to win, just as much as Vick. The Falcons lost by two touchdowns today, but the Raiders only lost by four.

    If I'm a GM starting a team, I'd much rather have Brooks, if I'm choosing between mediocre black quarterbacks on irrelevant teams.

    I'm no Vick fan. But on the other hand, I often wonder where and how Donovan McNabb was annointed as one of the greats, too.

    If his career were over tomorrow, my lasting image of him would be a pass at his receiver's feet.
