Personally, I'm not a big Vick fan but I can't deny what he has done with that franchise since he's been there. If he actually had some WR to throw to then they would be the team to beat in the NFC. Roddy White is too inexperienced, but he will blossom here in the next 1-2 years.
Vick has never been and never will be a permier QB. As for Atlanta's sniff of the superbowl, you should probably look back further than 2002.
1998 - Led by QB Chris Chandler and RB Jamal Anderson, the "Dirty Bird" Falcons have their greatest season to date. On November 8, they won 41-10 over the Patriots at New England, snapping a streak of 22 consecutive losses at cold-weather sites in November and December that had dated back to 1982. The team finishes with a 14-2 regular season record and win the NFC West. On January 18, 1999 the Falcons upset the top-seeded 15-1 Vikings at Minnesota in the NFC Championship Game, 30-27 in overtime. They would lose, 34-19, to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXIII.
They've had what, 2 playoff appearances since? Thanks mostly in part to Jim Mora, not Vick. Their defense has always been top notch, which I find it laughable that people give credit to Vick for what little success that team has had since his arrival. Maybe if he could throw for more than 150 yards a game without all the pick's, they'd do a little better.
And as far as Vy being the Michael Jordan of football, I find that to be the funniest fucking thing i've ever read. I can't wait for the excuses to fly when he doesn't dominate the leauge like you think he will.
