The formula for Michael Vick supporters is a simple one- put Vick in a run first offense, have him throw it 20-25 times tops, and ask him to make only a few plays per game. The formula makes sense on the surface. If Vick isn't asked to make 60 decisions a game with the ball, he will cut down on mistakes.
Do the numbers support that tho?
I took a look at Michael Vick's career and tallied up his stats in games where he threw under 25 times, and games where he threw over 25 times. I excluded his rookie year and where he left early because of injury. I used ProFootballReference.com and tallied these myself.
Is Michael Vick Better In Moderation?
