Can Michael Vick get through a press conference without being...well, himself?

    Looks like the comeback kid part of the transition is over in Philly...now, the Eagles are losing and Michael Vick is back to his ways of trying to intimidate reporters after every loss. "Are you really asking me that? Are you seriously asking me that?"

    Uh, yes, I just did, do you need me to repeat the question?

    Ugh. Way to take things out of context and not present the whole story but just an empty quote.

    Hate on hater.

    Petulant asshole. He may not kill dogs anymore, but he hasn't changed.

    oh good lord

    Mike is the least intimidating guy in that locker room. other than maybe Chad Hall

    Mike has a terrific relationship with all the beat guys, is available at his locker before and after every practice, is around for 1-on-1 stuff when you need him, jokes around with us all the time at his locker ... I can't think of a more accessible, down-to-earth. good-natured superstar that I've covered, and I've covered this team for a while.

    Hey Rueben, talk about T.O.

    In his defense, the "how do you feel" inquiry right after a heartbreaking loss is about as lazy and trite as questions get. What the hell do you think he's gonna say? At least he handled it honestly instead of blowing BS.

    Any time an interviewer starts with "Talk about..." he/she should get a three game suspension without pay.

    Lazy ass reporting.

    Yeah, it's R-E-U-B-E-N ... what do you mean, "Talk about T.O.?"

    here's are links to Mike's post-game presser. Typically insightful and detailed. He really listens to every question he's asked and does his best to give a genuine, honest, thoughtful answer.

    the guy's clearly trying to intimidate people, right?

    R-E-U-B-E-N is obviously a cat guy. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    what? where did I say I don't understand that some people won't think he's a good guy? what are you talking about?

    I responded only to the original poster's ridiculous assertion that Mike is "back to his ways of trying to intimidate reporters."

    terribly allergic to cats

    this has nothing to do with dogs or cats. it has to do with somebody who calls himself "flexmaster33" making a ridiculous assertion and me explaining why it's ridiculous
