I wouldn't have traded away the picks for Vick. Personally I think he's the most overrated player in the NFL in terms of game performance. He is fun to watch and sells tickets, and from that standpoint, he's a good economic decision for the team, and sometimes he can win games by himself, but so can other quarterbacks, just look at Frank Reich, or Vinny Testaverde in 2000 against the Dolphins (came back from 30-7 deficit) As much as I don't think BR is for real at least right now, I would much rather have him as a QB than Vick. While he may not have Vick's arm strength (although he has a cannon of his own) or his athleticism, he does seem to make smarter decisions. I'd much rather have Brady, Manning, BR, David Carr, and maybe even Carson Palmer than Vick... I think Boller will develop as a QB, he has a very strong arm and is quite athletic, he just needs to work on his mechanics a bit. When he came out of Cal he ran a 4.6 40 and could throw a ball from the 50 yard line through the uprights while kneeling.
