Michael Vick began playing college football at Virginia Tech in 1998. He led the Hokies to the National Championship Game against Florida State in 1999 and finished his college career with an amazing 20-1 record as a starter. His outstanding speed, arm strength, and ability to elude tackles led the Atlanta Falcons to pick him first overall in the 2001 NFL draft. Vick's reward for turning pro was a six-year, $62 million contract that included a $15 million signing bonus. Vick made his NFL debut at San Francisco on September 9, 2001 and saw limited action.
After trailing the entire game, the ball was finally in their court, but with minimal time on the clock. On the very next play it was as if god had given the running back for Tecumseh a set of wings. He flew down the sidelines deep into Cougar territory. The stage was now set. With five ticks on the clock remaining, the once hopeless Arrows lined up for the game winning thirty three yard field goal.

By next season already he was just throwing guys across the mat like rag dolls. Minnesota fans loved him, they held signs up that said “Brockfast of Champions,” it showed his neck and bicep measurements. (Rippel 35) Lesnar’s record was 22-0 when they came to face Iowa, there rival. At this match he lost to Wes Hand, later at the Big Ten Championships he beat Wes Hand. All he said after this match was “A W is a W.” After this he was headed to St.Louis for the NCAA Championships.
As a result of so many failed attempts, the blame has been heavily put onto the quarterback, Mark Sanchez. In only two seasons, Sanchez has more postseason wins than any other quarterback in the franchise (Freier, 20). Statistics show that Mark Sanchez has played very well during each AFC championship game, ultimately showing that he is not the only liable source to blame (Reiter, 76). Through the past few seasons, under head coach Rex Ryan, the coaching staff has been at blame as well. In a game, mismanagement and misunderstanding makes Sanchez look disorganized and unprofessional, placing the blame solely on him.
When testing his accuracy they made him use an anchor’s bull eyes which is known to be very difficult to hit even in Olympics levels. When testing his accuracy they also used sensors that allows you to find out his release velocity, launch angle, and spin rate. The results for Drew was a perfect 10 out of 10 which is incredible this why he is consider one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now. His results showed that four of his darts he throw hit the center of the bull eyes. It is accurate to say that when Drew throws a pass it is always thrown with consistency with a velocity of 52 miles per hour with a identical six degree launch angle that allows his release to spin at approximately 600 rpm which creates a gyroscopic torque in which gravity tries to pull the spin of the nose downward but the aerodynamic forces of the wind that floats over the ball counter balances each other to keep the ball on target where wobble occurs as the ball spins slightly of the axis the small circle of the nose traces in the air which is what makes his throws accurate.
This man was named Bill Parcells. Bill Parcells started with a team whom before him has back to back to back 5 – 11 records. He then in his very first season went 10 – 6 and went to the playoffs. Followed by a 6 – 10 and a 9 – 7 without a playoff appearance then in his last season a 9 -7 record but went to the playoffs They were expected to win the Super Bowl the year before this year but, Tony Romo fumbled the ball while trying to set it down for the kicker to kick for the lead with merely a few minutes left on the clock. He tried to pick up the ball and run it in the end zone for pretty much the win but was inches short from the first down and a yard away from the end zone when he was stopped by the linebacker from the Seattle Seahawks, who ended up with the Lombardi Trophy as the National Football League (NFL) champions.
These years were full of accomplishments, but also some not so positive actions. A day that will be remembered forever took place on February 23, 1985 in game at Bloomington between Purdue and Indiana, with just five minutes into the game, a scramble for a loose ball resulted in a foul call on Indiana's Daryl Thomas. Knight, irate, insisted the call should have been for a jump ball and ultimately received a technical foul. Purdue's Steve Reid stepped to the free throw line to shoot the resulting free throws, but before he could Knight grabbed a red plastic chair from Indiana's bench and threw it across the floor toward the basket in front of Reid. Knight was then ejected from the game.
Young also won the 2005 Cingular Player of the Year Award, All-American Offensive Player, and The Maxwell Award (college player of the year). He is what some would call the best college football player ever, and he fills this role pretty well. A perfect display of his dominance was exhibited at the 2006 Rose Bowl where he compiled 467 yards of total offense and 3 rushing touchdowns. Young’s third touchdown came in the final seconds of the game where he ran around the outside and went untouched into the end zone to put Texas up 41-38 over unbeaten USC. But like Redick, Vince keeps it together off the field.
