Michael Vick named starter

The threat of Vick has been drastically mitigated once defenses figured out that the way to beat him is (not surprisingly) to keep him in the pocket and make him pass.

Detroit aside, I don't think he has done anything to make defenses respect his arm.

Well that's the only full game he played. And vs the Packers he made plays with his arm aswell as running. Time will tell

I think it'll be prudent to watch how Vick performs for the next 5/6 games. His tougher games stretch will start against the 49ers (unless the 49ers lose against the Chiefs, and totally fall apart after that).

Michael Vick looks legit out there. Some of these throws he is making today, he never made them before.

3 TD passes. Having legitimate speedsters on the outside is really elevating his game. I'm still not buying him until he does it against division foes though.

dude

He;s better than smith, the way he throws and delivers the ball with touch/accuracy.

I wonder if Willis would still be sticking up for smith with vick on the roster. We'll see in two weeks.

Why are we talking about Alex Smith? Honestly this is pretty killing our chances of getting Vick. Philly's going to lock that man up if he continues to play the way he is.

It's a done deal..Vick will never be a 9er. They had their chance and blew it.
Vick is killing it. making the proper reads and perfect throws. Using his feet when necessary. and this is playing behind a shaky o line. He's not looking like he' s back he's looking better than what he was.

Pretty much now we know why ever national analyst mentioned out loud about the Niners going after various different qb's. Instead they thought by standing by Alex and constantly saying he's our qb and that the team isn't interested in any other qb. I mean they even passed on Clausen 2 or 3 times. Not saying he's gonna be great but why would you pass on him in the later rounds to develop when Smith is your qb. I believe it was all done to boost Smith's confidence and it still didn't work.

yay! we passed on some talented player because we were afraid of what the sf hipsters might think, even though they could give two s**ts about football.

Several teams had a chance to take Vick - only Eagles did. It's not because of what SF "hipsters" might think - everyone had reservations about him - whether it's SF or Tennessee.

I remember many people saying they didn't want a "dog killer" on the team, and a lot was said about oh it's san francisco, it has a bunch of liberals, if they bring him on the team, it'll be bad for the image and all this s**t. after all that, we quickly went on the media and said we had no interest in him.

what other possible reservations might we have had about him? he was never known as a cancer in the football field or in the locker room. i'm pretty sure the "image" was the deciding, if not the only factor for our refusal to even show interest.

i think even sing praised him before we closed the book on him.
