Who has the edge at quarterback?

Who has the edge at quarterback?

 

Here is a quick look at the two quarterbacks in Sunday's Eagles-Packers playoff game, and who we think has the advantage:

Eagles
Michael Vick has fumbled nine times (lost three) and thrown six interceptions in his last six starts. Defenses are attacking him with blitz pressure and he’s been slow to react. He has completed just 55 percent of his pass attempts vs. the blitz and has been sacked 19 times, the second most in the league.

Packers
In his last seven starts, Aaron Rodgers has thrown 16 TDs, 2 INTs and averaged 9.3 yards per attempt. He is the league’s top-rated QB vs. the blitz (107.4 rating, 66.5 completion percentage, eight sacks in 166 dropbacks). Rodgers is very mobile. He is third in rushing among quarterbacks (356 yards, 5.6 per carry), behind Vick and the Bucs’ Josh Freeman.

Edge: Packers
