OK, you may agree or disagree with Michael Vick's new, best-in-the-NFL contract. The contract is a free choice between Rich McKay, Atlanta's GM, and Vick. Whether you like it or not is your choice. But please, please, PLEEEASE! don't use QB rating to support your opinion.

All morning long I've been listening to people who pretend to know better (i.e. sports journalists), complain that Vick's QB rating is #156 among the 32 NFL QB's. That's like saying Tim Duncan is over-rated because he doesn't steal the ball enough.

The value in Vick is not passing yards, TD's and Interceptions, the pure passing QB skills which are the key to QB rating. Michael Vick changes the game and the opposing defense's approach to the QB. Plus, as far as Atlanta is concerned, he puts people in the seats.
