Let's be realistic. Vick cannot pass anything but herpes. Mike Vick is not a black QB as some people think. He's really a plaid QB. Very busy and exciting to look at, but pretty useless in practical terms and often embarrassing in public. I'm wearing my plaid blogger pajamas now, so I know. They look great here in the home office. I change to go out and get the paper and the mail.
He not only has no one to throw to, but the thing that makes him exciting is also unpredictable to his blockers. To the opponent, Vick is entirely predictable. Let him run himself out and wait for the ball to come back. The Falcons could save money and do community service by hiring DAVs with no hands.
The Falcons will never get to a Super Bowl with Mike Vick. It's a shame. Great, exciting athlete. Not an NFL QB. He's a guy who runs around with a football in his hand. RB? I don't know. I don't think he can take the pounding.
The long nightmare I predicted this year and last has begun anew after a 27-14 pounding at the hands of the NY Football Giants who have a QB whoselearning curve wasn't as steep and doesn't dress like a gangster and hides his STDs better.
Next is Pittsburgh whose QB has rebounded from a battered skull and appendicitis after a handful of games to lead. I shudder.
May I remind disgruntled Falcons fans that the Mora No More website, established last year after the cell phone and string cheese incidents on the sideline, is still up and running. Feel free to visit and post comments.
I still have a man crush on Patrick Kerney and hope he stays with the new regime next year.
