Will Michael Vick Make Hall Of Fame?
Yes this is an interesting question.... Its still early but assuming he continues to mirror numbers similar to last season for next 3-4 years... think he is worthy of the Hall Of Fame??? Does he need a championship to get himself in?
Has he done enough as a running QB to overlook his passing stats early on?
Has he changed enough now to make him an all-around guy?
Is he that Dynamic of a player that he redefined the position to get him in?
Is he not good enough in your eyes?
Vick will Definitely be a Hall Of Famer, once he Plays
Once he Stays Healthy, plays near or at least 7 seasons including this one, YES HE WILL DEFENITELY.
Vick is the ALL TIME RUSHING LEADERS FOR QB, and he is Just 31, Imagine the Record he will set, for one of the MOST DYNAMIC QBs Ever, There was Cunningham and Steve Young and others, but NONE like Vick. (He may get into the Hall of Fame just because of that..or maybe not, but anyway his QB Play has gained High Respect for Past and Present, and will be looked back on for GENERATIONS to come)
Compare these Stats with Hall of Fame QB, Steve Young who is 24th All Time Passing with 33,124 yds;
At age 31, in his second season as SF Starter, Young had 11,877 passing yards to date at season's end, and as we all know he had his best years in his 30's, all the way through mid and late 30's.
Vick , at age 31, currently has 16, 802 yards in 115th place, and with 7 games to go there is no reason he shouldnt get at least 200 a game so he should finish the season with at least 3000 yards again, and career 18,202 at least. If he averages at least 2487 the next 6 seasons he will surpass Youngs total. He is on pace to average at least 3000 a year since his return, so he can surpass that in 5 years. (Imagine Vick did not miss basically 3 full seasons as a Starter, he averaged more than 2400 yards a year the previous 2 seasons before serving time, Vick couldve already have at least 24,000 yds for his Career today)
Steve finished with 232 TD Passes, 23rd all time, and 43 Rushing TD.
Vick currently has 104 Passing TD's and 32 Rushing TD's., He should get at least 100 more Passing TDs and will more than likely surpass Youngs Rushing TD's by a good margin.
Steve Young finished with 4239 rushing yds, at 5.9 yds per att, 25.1 yds a game.
Vick currently has 5165 Rushing Yards, 7.2 yds per rush and 48.3 yds a game. He should get at least 3000 more for his career, finishing with well over 8000 yds, possibly doubling Young's total, and 3000 yards more than Randall Cunningham, second on the all time rushing QBs with 4928.
On the Negative side Vick currently has 69 career Interceptions, Steve finished with 107, so their stats may be similar in that field comes the end of Vick's career.
Steve Youngs Career QB rating is much Higher at 96.8 to Vick's 80.1, but Vick still gets Significant stats very comparable and sometimes exceeding Young's, and 80.1 is pretty good.
Yes, he does not have the championships like Steve, but with the Team he has, that potential is there for sometime within the next 5 yrs, and even if he doesnt, once he stays Healthy and plays, his stats will get him in.
Michael Vick is a FUTURE NFL HALL OF FAMER
