I remember the little kids over at AFMB saying things to that extent, but not here. He isn't the passer, nor the runner, Mike was coming out of college. Sure, Marcus threw the ball decent against the scrubbier teams in the ACC, but it is apparent to me that people have forgotten what kind of player Michael was in high school. We've already had this ridiculous discussion at AFMB and could do without this nonsense here.
Obviously you haven't seen the VT games or you'd feel differently. You prob only saw the Miami game like everyone else whose a Marcus "expert". I've seen every VT game for the last 9+ years, so I certainly feel more qualified to give an opinion, than yours with no backbone to it.
Did you know VT allowed Marcus to check into his own plays for most of this year. Did you know for most of the season he was the NCAA 2nd rated passer for efficiency for the whole country. Did you know that when Mike was there, they would only let him read half of the field on passing downs. Ie. He rolls to the left, so he would only have to read half the defense. So don't pretend you know the difference when its obvious you don't. Nobodies slighting Mike for what he does, or did in college, just that Marcus' is gonna make his mark one way or another. If you don't like the thread, don't comment.
I think Pudge already summed it up...
Comp, although Mike definitely has Marcus on the physical aspects of hte game, Marcus is just much better than MIke as a passer.
Yeah you got me there, I haven't seen Marcus against anyone but Miami
. Yeah he looked good against the scrub teams as I said before, but we're talking about who is the better prospect coming out of college. You seem to really believe what you're saying about Vick only reading half of the field, as if he always rolled out in college and that is so far from the truth you'd have to be Stretch Armstrong to reach for that. Michael threw out of the pocket a majority of the time, and he did so better than Marcus did. If you've seen every game for 9+ years then how can you post this drivel about Michael reading half the field?
Either way, if Michael wasn't ALLOWED to read any of the defense, he still put up the best passing efficiency numbers in the NCAA as a Freshman and carried the lowly VaTech Hokies to their first National Championship game. Marcus is a poor man's Donovan McNabb at best, which means he probably would have gone in the 2nd or 3rd round without his problems. Don't pretend to know everything, because you don't. Don't begin to even try to pretend to know what I have seen and what I know, because you obviously have no clue. Coming out of college, Michael Vick was comparable to John Elway & Marcus Vick is comparable to Quincy Carter.
And thanks, but I don't need Pudge to tell me what to think about Vick, I've already had it out with most of the guys here about Michael during the season. Let's just say I don't see eye to eye with any of you on the subject at all.
