Lot of things people should look for in a quarterback. Accuracy, leadership, pocket presence, arm strength, ability to read defenses and way down the list is who is the fastest.
Hopefully, someone tells Michael Vick that because he seems to be a little caught up on this speed thing. Here is his quote courtesy of Larry Brown Sports.
“These guys are young and they’re fast and they’re quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up,” Vick told The Dan Patrick Show on Friday, via Pro Football Talk. “I really don’t feel like there’s a quarterback in the league who can beat me in a 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I’ll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But as of right now I’m going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast and RG3 is fast as well.”
The two things that Vick needs to worry about is accuracy and ball security. Doesn’t matter how fast you are if you murdering gophers with your throws and fumbling when you run.
I still think Vick can be a quality QB in the NFL, just has to focus on the right things.
