When discussing the greatest NFL quarterback of all time, the conversation typically revolves around iconic figures like Tom Brady with his remarkable seven Super Bowl victories. Yet, amidst the usual contenders such as Joe Montana and the emerging talents like Patrick Mahomes, there’s a name that often doesn’t get the recognition it deserves: Michael Vick, as pointed out by former Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel on a recent episode of Run It Back on FanDuel TV.

“The goat in my eyes, I have a different opinion, I love Michael Vick.”

Manziel’s nod towards Vick as the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) might have been made in a lighthearted manner, but it sheds light on Vick’s enduring legacy.

Despite falling short of the immense hype surrounding him, Vick left an indelible mark on the NFL with his exceptional skills, captivating audiences every time he stepped onto the field.

Vick’s prowess as a dual-threat quarterback revolutionized the game. While mobile quarterbacks were not a novelty, Vick’s electrifying speed and agility elevated the position to new heights. He shattered stereotypes associated with quarterbacks who relied on their legs, demonstrating that mobility could be a potent weapon rather than a mere compensation for passing deficiencies.

In many ways, Vick paved the way for the current generation of mobile quarterbacks. Today, the ability to move fluidly within the pocket and extend plays is highly coveted, with quarterbacks like Lamar Jackson, Russell Wilson, and Cam Newton flourishing in the league. Vick’s influence transcends statistics; he fundamentally altered the perception of what a quarterback could achieve on the field.

Although Vick may not hold the title of the GOAT, his impact on the game cannot be overstated. He not only changed the way quarterbacks play but also inspired a new generation of players to redefine the position. In the grand narrative of football history, Vick’s legacy remains a testament to the enduring evolution of the sport.

Speaking of Johnny Manziel, it’s a shame his NFL career did not live up to the hype. He truly was one of the most entertaining quarterbacks to play the game in recent history.
