Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick Named Most Disappointing NFL Player in 2012

By Bryn Swartz

According to a poll of 103 NFL players, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been named the most disappointing player in the National Football League.

Vick received 16 of the 103 votes.

Here are a pair of the comments players said on Vick.

“It has to be Michael Vick with all their expectations.” — Cowboys S Charlie Peprah

“Vick has been disappointing because you know what type of ability he has running and throwing the ball, especially with his weapons. For whatever reason, it hasn’t come together yet.” — NFC defensive player

I couldn’t agree more with Vick topping this list. To call him a disappointment this season is an understatement. He openly talked about the team’s potential to turn into a dynasty, yes a dynasty, during the offseason, but has completely failed to deliver on all levels this season.

He hasn’t missed a play despite playing behind an offensive line that has been missing two key starters in Jason Peters and Jason Kelce, but he also has committed the third-most turnovers in the league by quarterbacks. He is terrible at leading a red zone offense and he hasn’t led the Eagles to more than 24 points this season.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finished second in the voting with 15 votes, just one behind Vick.

Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha finished ninth, collecting two votes. Asomugha is allowing a 112.4 passer rating this season, and he simply can’t keep up with the game’s better receivers.

Other interesting players to receive votes included Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who finished fifth with seven votes. New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow collected five votes. Former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb collected two votes.
