revolutionize

break with the past, metamorphose, modernize, reform, revamp, transform

& there's no doubt Vick did some of that to the game.
Ok I'll give you that perhaps Vick did revolutionize the game to a certain degree in the sense of the word as you just defined it. When I think of revolutionizing something I also think 'improving'. Vick didn't do that. There are several players who preceded Vick that could be considered more of a revolutionary type than Vick. I'll add Steve McNair to that list. The guy ran and threw the ball in college like a monster and continued having success with that game in the NFL. Vick is probably the fastest guy to ever play QB in the NFL but to say he revolutionized the game is fantasy.

I agree that he revolutionized the game. Never again will an athlete of any significance decide to fight animals like dogs or chickens. It is now unthinkable where before it just wasn't thought about.

At the end of the day, it is the job of the QB to PASS the ball. It is his job to get the ball into the hands of his playmakers, and do so in a calculated, intelligent, and responsible manner. Running all over the field is usually counter to that job. It's good to be able to do it, but give me a guy that wants to pass the ball over a guy that wants to run the ball any day. Watch Russell Wilson play. He's a young guy with some holes still in his game, but you can tell he already has it together mentally. He'll run and convert first downs when he has to, but he'd rather get the ball to his guys out in the field and let them do more with it.

Vick had basically one good year as a quarterback and a few good years as a runner that lined up in the QB position.

Cha...Mike. You're a decent QB, but you're just doing a Randal Cunningham impression.Sorry
Dog-boy, but Randal has gone on RECORD saying that the only reason HE ran so much is that his O-line wasn't so great and his receivers frequently couldn't get open.

If he would've put more time and effort into studying the game earlier in his career he might've been one of the best. But, like others have mentioned, there was Young, Cunningham, etc. that had already been there and done what Vick was able to do.

People talking about Mike Vike as a passer seem to be forgetting he's got one of the biggest cannons the NFL has ever seen. Yeah, he sucks at accuracy but the guy could just flick the ball out 60 yards and it didn't even look hard to do.

He would've been ATL's QB for a lot longer if he had not gone to prison, but, that of course, happened.
