Although he will be 32 years old by the time the season starts and he struggled last year with injuries, inconsistency, and a high amount of turnovers, Michael Vick is the quarterback for one of the league’s most explosive offenses, and therefore he has to be considered a prime candidate to make the Pro Bowl.
There are some immensely talented passing quarterbacks in the NFC—Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Eli Manning, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, and Tony Romo, plus exciting young players who can run and pass in Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III. Factor in an expected bounce back season for Sam Bradford and Josh Freeman, and the talented team that Alex Smith plays on, and nearly every quarterback in the conference could be vying for a spot.
Vick set his career high in passing yards last year and he’s a dual-threat to run and pass the football, and he has been to four Pro Bowls in his career. He has two bonafide star wide receivers in DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, an underrated tight end, and arguably the game’s best all-around back in LeSean McCoy. If Vick can stay healthy, he has to be considered a prime candidate.
