I didnt know this, ran across it on accident.

Vick has fumbled 41 times in 50 games. WOW.

Ball security is definitely not one of his strengths. That number is pretty high because usually his fumbles come in bunches. He has fumbled twice in a game a grand total of 12 times in his career. The Falcons are 8-4 in games that Vick fumbles 2 or more times in, and 13-6 in games that he does not fumble in but manages to throw a minimum of 10 passes. Those winning percentages (66.7 vs. 68.4) are practically identical, so ball security really hasn't put the Falcons in a lot of positions to lose.

You should note that some other QBs also have ball security issues as well, looking at their last 50 or so games:

David Carr - 45 fumbles in 52 games = 0.87/gm.
Drew Bledsoe - 44 fumbles in 56 games = 0.79/gm.
Daunte Culpepper - 50 in 53 games = 0.94/gm.
Aaron Brooks - 41 in 57 games = 0.72/gm.

Vick's average is 0.82 a game, so at least you could say he could get worse.

It's interesting that in games where Vick fumbles "only" once, we post a 7-8-1 record, a losing one.

So in games where Vick puts the ball on the ground, pray for another one. :P

Dead on. Told my wife about this on the way out of the stadium, she said "That's just weird."
