I mean, he played well, no doubt, but they're calling all the TDs great throws. One was a pass to a flat where a guy missed the tackle completely and another was a lazy pass where the cornerback fell to the ground on his kisser...both were thrown max 15 yards...neither of those two should have been TDs.

I just don't see how those are amazing passes. Peyton Manning threw some amazing passes yesterday....

One week Vick's washed up; the next week, everybody's lined up again to service him. If Vick doesn't get the Falcons to the SB THIS year, could it be that everyone has to admit they're embarrassed from being in love with him all these years? Face it, Vick was expected to have singlehandedly gotten the Falcons to the SB several times with several rings by now. It doesn't really seem like it, but he's slowly on his way out.

Vick's biggest problem is inconsistancy. He'll have a couple of good games and then he'll go back to his old ways. I wonder though, is it that he has become a great passer all of a sudden or is it that his receivers are actually learning how to catch the football?

It's a big deal because he's one of the most athletic players in the NFL. He has always had trouble with his accuracy/consistency. If he is able to mature as a passer, well, you already now what he can do with his legs. A balanced attack will make him unstoppable- that is why the media is making a big deal out of it.

i dunno about deserving, more attention, but if vick has "found himself", he will no doubt be mvp if he stays consistant from his play the last two weeks, but reggie bush, is like a media darling which if his play continues of last game will change in a heartbeat, but every player has there horrible games, reggie has played 7 games and people are already saying he wont live up to his hype, which is crazy, bush has had to deal with alot of stuff, and is a remarkable young man, when he led the league in catches before the phily game, everybody was on his bandwagon, since then and the ravens game alot, ALOT of people have jumped off which has been vaildated by his play vs the ravens, but he had a real real bad game that happens to the best of em, but c'mon reggie will be reggie and his doubters will eat crow

Umm, Vick basically did what he said he was going to do, and thats pass and do damn good at it and thats why he's getting praised, Grats to VICK, Granted the teams he played didn't have an Defense or a entire team that could match up with them, they got the job done and got the W.

I want to see him do it in 2 weeks from now when they play an actual Defense (RAVENS) These 3 weeks are handed to them on a Feathered platter. But if they somehow Lose against Detriot or Cleveland they better not come on this dag on board i don't care what week it is!

If we lose against the Lions or Browns, everyone should go over to the AFMB and watch the board have a complete melt down (I'll bring the marshmellows and hershey bars for the smoores!). We have soooo many bandwagon fans it's sad, and they all come out of the woodworks when we lose.

Some of you are off tangent. I'm not talking about praising Vick. I'm talking specifically calling those TD throws amazing, great, flawless, etc...Missed tackle and a cornerback falling down who, if he didn't, couldn't have likely intercepted the ball. Nothing was great about those passes.

they got the "W" and Vick contributed big time with even his worst throws, they deserve all the nonsense from the media, he's backing up his ish talking he did after the Giants loss right after they're bye week, when he said basically he can throw too, They're not pretty throws but he's getting "W'''s with em.

I dunno if i read anywhere that they were perfect, or flawless, Amazing yes they are, it's Amazing the Recievers are able to even get those balls to make vick look better than he really is.

If a mentally challenged kid learns to read and do long divison its a huge deal. If a normal person does its just another day in school.

Noone thought vick would learn to pass, now that he is doing it people are amazed. It doesn't have much to do with the actual way hes doing it. If he throws for 2 TD's its a big deal to the media. If Brees does it its just another day in the office.
