Michael Vick is a former NFL quarterback and was known for his ability to use his legs and throw the ball extremely far. He was one of the best quarterbacks in the game and could send a football 60 yards downfield. He was also left-handed, which made him more dangerous.
His arm is one of the strongest in the game and is considered to be one of the best in the history of the NFL. He can throw a spiral at least fifty yards down the field and still hit the end zone. This ability is impressive for a quarterback who is not physically large up front.
In 2002, Vick had a great year. He started all 16 games, missing only one (a sprained shoulder) against the New York Giants. In total, he completed 231 of 421 passes for 2,936 yards and 16 touchdowns. He had numerous career highs during the season, including single-game highs of both passing and rushing yards. He also tied the NFL record for touchdown-to-interception ratio.
If Vick could throw a football that far, it would break the record for the longest pass by a quarterback. Jim Plunkett threw a 99-yard touchdown pass in 1983. Afterward, Vick was retired from the NFL and threw the ball in the stands at the stadium as a tribute to the Powerade commercial.
The former NFL quarterback showed off his deep ball this week, showing the world just how far he can throw a football. He showed off his deep ball on Saturday. This demonstrates that Vick is still capable of throwing a ball. He is still 41 years old, but his deep ball ability is unrivaled.
In his rookie year, Vick won the opener against the Redskins and threw four touchdown passes. But his performance dipped during the following season when he was replaced by Foles. Vick spent the rest of the season as a backup quarterback and made just one appearance against the Chicago Bears.
Vick spent five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles after being released from prison. He earned four Pro Bowl selections and won Comeback Player of the Year in 2010. He spent two seasons with the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers before he officially retired. During his final two seasons, he remained a free agent.
