In Steve Young's career, he completed 64 percent of his passes for 33,124 yards, 232 TDs, and only 107 INTs (21 of those came when he was on the *shudder* expansion Bucs).
In Mike Vick's career, he completed a very pedestrian 55 percent of his passes for 14,609 yards, 93 TDs, and 58 INTs.
Steve Young is one of the best passers ever to play football, with a career passer rating of 96.8. Michael Vick is not even one of the best passers today, with a career passer rating of 80.2.
While Michael Vick can obviously produce in the running game, he leaves something to be desired as a passer.
Although he improved his numbers in Philadelphia, completing over 60 percent of his passes for the first time in his career with 3,018 yards, 21 TDs, and 6 INTs, as of now Steve Young has a dominant edge in this category, and ultimately QBs are judged by how well they throw.
If Vick wants to be reasonably compared to Steve Young, he needs to have many more seasons that duplicate his 2010.
