Vick is the perfect example of how fantasy leagues have horribly skewed the perception of what makes a good football player.

Steelers notebook: Eagles QB Vick has shined against Pittsburgh

By Alan Robinson
Published: Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Quarterback Michael Vick will face the Steelers for only the third time in 10 years and the first with Philadelphia.

Vick had two huge games against them with Atlanta — a 34-34 tie in 2002 at Heinz Field in which he led the Falcons back from a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter and a 41-38 win in 2006 when he threw for four touchdowns.

“He has a skill set that is unique,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “He’s extremely quick and fast. He can get out of tough spots. He’s got a quick release.”

Vick has thrown for 526 yards and five touchdowns and rushed for 78 yards and a score against the Steelers.

• Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger couldn’t contain his excitement during training camp as rookie Chris Rainey excelled as a receiver out of the backfield, a kick returner and a speed back capable of breaking off long runs. But Rainey has been almost invisible during the regular season, carrying six times for 15 yards and returning only one punt, although he has four kickoff returns. He had two carries for 7 yards against Oakland as the Steelers tried four backs — Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, Baron Batch and Rainey — in an unsuccessful effort to generate a running game.

• The Steelers will try to avoid losing consecutive games for the first time since dropping five in a row late in 2009. They were 12-4 each of the past two seasons. “I think that anybody that’s extremely competitive and has been good over an extended period of time, you understand you can’t have losing streaks,” Tomlin said. “We’re interested in stacking wins. We’re stacking zero right now because we lost the last time we played.”

• The Steelers have won following their bye week each of the past four seasons. “It’s an opportunity to self-evaluate, see where we are and work on some areas of needed improvement,” Tomlin said. Asked if this bye week came too early, he said, “I haven’t run across a bye week that didn’t seem to come in a timely manner.”

I would hate the Steelers if they brought in Vick. I hate that they even considered it. Filthedelphia is a good fit for him. Moral cesspool town, moral cesspool QB.

At least BR has reportedly grown up, at least a little. I doubt that he has magically become a bright beacon of humanity, but hopefully he is somewhat less self-absorbed now.

I agree he can't hold ben's jock in a million years, but I was comparing him to our backup QB's, and he's better than anything we have behind ben. I would consider backup QB a position of need since lefty is made of glass and batch is 200 years old

What? Ben is lucky he's still capable of holding his own jock strap; lets not forget all the drama this guy has caused the past few yrs. Two rape accusations; no, he was never convicted, but where there is smoke, there is fire. I don't care for Michael Vick as a QB, never has; personally, I think the main reason he went down is due to his arrogance. Playing in Pittsburgh? I couldn't see that; but what amazes me is this, #7 being accused twice of raping two women and he's still on the team. I don't trust that guy, something with him isn't right too.

Lee is a tackling machine. How did we pass on him?
His instincts and ability to read the play are amazing.
I've watched all their games......he's consistently been their best defensive player.

the frustrating thing for me is that the Steelers had a first round grade on Sean Lee and still passed on him in the second round over Jason Worilds who gets hurt when he sneezes too hard.

a classic case of not sticking to the BPA theory and drafting for need instead...

You are here in therapy, because you got caught. How do you keep from getting caught? Yes, Ben Roethlisberger...

Don't screw girls in public bathrooms...???

Yes. Mr. Letterman...

Uh... when they ask for your money, pay them...???
