Greg Knapp was the qb coach for Steve Young and OC for Jeff Garcia, and they both did fine with him.
Except that both Steve Young and Jeff Garca are both West Coast Offense quarterbacks to a T. Mike Vick isn't. He never was. Neither was anybody on their offense.
The offensive system they ran in Atlanta was ********. They tried to implement a zone blocking scheme and a West Coast, short passing game at first. Then, they realized that Mike Vick wasn't a good fit in a disciplined, complicated passing game, and would be a better fit in a strong running game, coupled with deep play-action passing where he would be free to improvise. The result is that they were left with a mess - an offensive line built for zone blocking and three step drops that was way too small to hold up in 5 and 7 step drop pass protection.
