Michael Vick:
Attempts: 361
Completions: 202
Comp. %: 55.95%
Yards: 3,504
Interceptions: 12
Touchdowns: 22

Vincent Young:
Attempts: 393
Completions: 232
Comp. %: 59.03%
Yards: 3,004
Interceptions: 18
Touchdowns: 18

Translation:
Vick - 32 fewer pass attempts, 500 more yards, 4 more TDs, 6 fewer INTs

Vick was way more effective throwing the ball downfield than Young. Young is not the passer that Vick was and does not have Vick's speed. Throwing shorter routes more often explains Young's higher completion percentage.
