Unfotunately for Dallas, Michael Vick is responsible for most of those negative stats. Below is a statistical comparison of the 2 QB’s for the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles.



Since Michael Vick has 2.16 times more pass attempts this season than Nick Foles, the above chart compares Vick’s actuals, Foles’ actuals, and also Foles’ pace if he would have thrown 132 passes like Mike.

Right off you can see Foles 67.2% completions is far more daunting than Vick’s inaccurate 53.8%.

Both are equal in yards per attempt (9.0 to 8.9), thus Foles is much more consistent at hitting his mark.

The total yardage would likely be very close between the two if they had the same attempts.  With 2.16 times more attempts, Vick still trails Foles in TD’s (5 to 6).

Even more worrisome is Foles has yet to turn the ball over a single time while Vick surrendered possession 4 times.  On top of that Vick was sacked 14 times and Foles is only on Pace for 4.

Strictly in regards to effective passing, it’s abundantly clear Nick Foles will be far more dangerous to contain than Vick.  The rushing element is discussed further down.
