I'm with you, whatever happens for us to make the playoffs....I'm good with it. Injuries are part of the game....especially for 6' 210lb running QBs.

Re: Vick is a crybaby

If I'm correct the minute he pulls the ball down he has become the runner even if he is just scrambling to make a throw. The only head shot I saw him take yesterday was when he was trying to run to the right away from the preasure and at that point was considered a runner. On that play he even lowered his head. The play that broke his hand his hand was smashed against his chest or he broke in when he fell to the ground.

Explanation? Along w/ all the other late hits and helmet to helmet hits not called?

The "Vick is a different kind of QB" argument is dumb dumb dumb. Lotta QBs extend plays w/ their legs i.e. Big Ben. The difference is defensive players don't constantly get in the late hit and helmet to helmet shots because they know the refs will call it and the league will fine them.

Yes i think youre right. QBs also have the option to slide (this may be a option for everyone though?) when they run and not get hit. Although as Vick stated last year he doesnt know how to slide.

agreed.
imo it seems the roughing the passer calls have been called less frequently than last year. There have been plays where i watch and say to myself "thats 15 yards" then no flag is thrown where as last year it would have been. i guess they overcall it the first year the rule is implemented, then during the offseason the league goes over film with them and tries to curb the unnecessary flags.

also i think there is a discrepancy btw refs as to what each individual ref considers roughing the passer.

heard mangini say on ESPN radio this morning that a 15 yard PF flag is thrown for something like 2.3 or 2.6 percent of vicks drop backs which is right in line with the QB league avg.

interesting lil tidbit. when a qb goes into a protected slide (D player cant hit them) the ball is marked where the ball was at the time the QB starts the slide, not where the ball is when the QB completes the slide or has his knee touch the turf. which is why most QBs will try and lung forward if they are close to the FD line instead of the slide.

Trent dilfer ripped him on sports center with valid points and rightfully so...
I did see the intentional grounding but that wasn't bogus at all, he was within the tackle box and he threw it to an area where there was no receiver in the vincinity. My point was the racism angle is just completely stupid. Could there have been a flag on that play? Yes, but for one reason or another, he didn't get it. He should be busy teaching his offensive linemen how to block instead of getting pissed at the refs.

Re: Vick is a crybaby

They tell you to get your helmet on Vick and that's just what you have to do to stop the elusive sob. Don't dance so much in the pocket or run and maybe you'll see less hits.

Re: Vick is a crybaby

First look at the Canty hit and I thought it was a penalty. Subsequent looks led me to believe it might be legit -- a questionable penalty at best. Certainly not clear-cut.

And I'll add my own . I think the refs and even the league are treading on the fine line of discrimination/racism wrt Vick. He's listed as a quarterback period end of sentence and when he's behind the LOS extending a play w/ his feet there's no legitimate excuse for the helmet to helmet and/or late hits he takes. In short, every other marquee (err white) QB in the league gets the benefit of the doubt everytime in those instances. F*ck you barely lay a finger on Tom B's pretty head or dare to tap him after a play and there's a shower of yellow flags coming in for minutes. Same goes for several others.

I understand there's room for debate about what type of guy Vick is i.e. character issues but it's really, really disingenuous to pretend it's ok the guy is treated differently as a player.

Off soap-box...and ps I'm white.
The roughing calls that Vick gets or doesn't get are pretty in line with what a non-elite quarterback in this league gets the benefit of. He's not getting calls that Brady or Rivers may get, but you might think back to the Rodgers pick he threw in OT at FedEx last year to Landry, where Jarmon (incidentally) went helmet to helmet with him. Today, Rodgers absolutely gets that call. But because at the time he hadn't earned the benefit of the doubt, and it looked incidental enough, so no flag was thrown.

Campbell went the entire 2009 season without drawing a roughing flag, despite the fact we couldn't block anybody. But McNabb drew a roughing flag against the Cowboys on opening night 2010.

This is a penalty that gets flagged really inconsistently, and Vick seems to be on the wrong side of that more often than not. But it's a league-wide problem.

This does seem like a case of sour grapes, but I'll say this: Brady is far more whiny about it than Vick is. If there's any element of race here, it's not in how the penalties are administered, its in the public reaction to it: Brady is doing it because he's a competitor, Vick is doing it because he's soft.

The Eagles without Vick are a better team than the Cowboys or Rams at current strength.

Ben really doesn't get roughing calls in line with his abilities either. Now, part of that is because he's so tall that its nearly impossible to hit him in the head.

Though he did get the one last week where Brock fell into his legs. And that was questionable because he was blocked into his legs.

Best line of your post....Spot-on.
