Me thinks he disappoints this year, especially where most drafters will take him.

Both my leagues are 12-team, start 2-QB leagues, so there is a distinct possibility he goes #1 overall in one or both of them. So, yes, I agree that he will disappoint compared to where he is drafted, but it will be disappointment the way CJ was disappointing last year for me at #1 overall, which is to say, he'll still be pretty good.

yes and I venture to say he will be better than pretty good. He might not match last year but he will still be very good, at least.

Is there any way I take Vick in the first round? No.
Is there any way I take Vick above Rodgers? No.
Is there any way he matches last year? No.

That said if he is on the field, he will still be excellent. I think the biggest concerns all revolve around the o-line. It's a mess right now. If they can't pull it together it's gonna cost Vick effectiveness and the bigger concern is that it could lead to Vick getting hurt. He's very very risky and that needs to be considered when drafting him.

When you're a QB rushing for 900+ yards in addition to your passing stats, it will only take an injury for him to majorly disappoint.

sure and the same could be said about every other player in the NFL. He is at more risk because he runs more than the average QB but thats also why his numbers are spectacular.

The counter-argument to this is that this year, it's Vick's team. Remember that last year Kevin Kolb was the starter in the off-season, all of pre-season, and in the first game. Now, Vick gets all of those reps. And he'll have the offense structured more around his strengths instead of an offense designed for Kolb.

We'll see if practice, preparation counts for anything in the real games.

The O-line is a mess, defenses will scheme for him more this year and Vick has only played a full season only once in his career.

you mean defenses didnt scheme for him last year? All those DCs should be canned.

He didnt play a full season last year. Seemed to do okay.
