Vick is noted for his never before seen style of quarterbacking. He is considered by many to be the most exciting player in the game of football and he has earned the nickname "Superman". Gifted with extraordinary speed and athletic ability, Vick can engineer big plays with both his arms and his legs. In the 2004 football season (including post season), Michael Vick rushed for over 1,000 yards, which is a higher rushing total than many running backs in the NFL. Vick's mobility has often caused major problems for opposing defenses, which have to defend against him differently than they would against a conventional-style quarterback. Whereas most quarterbacks are not a major threat to run the ball for a lot of yards, Vick is capable of breaking huge runs from anywhere on the field. Additionally, Vick has often been able to buy more time to throw by evading pass rushers with his spectacular agility and speed. Thus, opposing defenses must find ways to constrict Vick's running lanes in order to contain him. 2004 is a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
