Michael Vick is back ... and that would be fine if it is the 2010 version that replaced an injured Kevin Kolb in the opener and had a good-enough season to sign a contract seemingly worth — at the time — nine figures.

Or ... will it be the 2011/2012 Vick, who generated 33 turnovers in 23 starts.

Here are how his regular season numbers for the Eagles in 2010 compare to the last two seasons. (We are graciously throwing out the 2009 "Wildcat" season as an aberration):

   2010  2011-12
 QB Starts  11  23
    W-L  8-3  10-13
 Comp.-Att.  233-372     457-774   
    Pct.  62.6%  59.0%
 Yards  3018  5565
    Yds./Att.  8.11  7.19
 Touchdowns  21  30
    TD Pct.  5.6%  3.9%
 Interceptions  6  24
    Int. Pct.  1.6%  3.1%
 TD/Int.  3.5/1  1.25/1
 Fumbles-Lost  11-3  20-9
 Total TDs (Run+Pass)      30  32
 Total Turnovers      9  33
    TOs in Red Zone  1  10

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
