    Gone. Perhaps Vick really is a coach-killer?

    Ty Willingham better not open any suspicious packages in the mail in the coming weeks.

    What, Vick has something against Willingham?

    This is what Mora wanted all along. The last month of the season, he was acting like a guy who wanted to get canned...

    Yeah, I'd say that's true.

    I'd be running my mouth too, if the owners of my team didn't realize that the franchise player may not be all that great. The Falcons are a sinking ship as long as Vick is at the helm.

    I'm not saying he's not an above average player, but his style is really starting to suffer as he gets older.

    If the new coach wants to keep his job for any length of time, he may want to name Schaub as his starter. That is if he's still on the Falcons, since I believe he's a restricted free agent.

    So who do you trade TO junior, a.k.a. Vick, too?

    Vick is hardly TO. There's no player in the NFL that is criticized or judged for his on-field performance as much as Michael Vick. Most of TOs baggage he brought upon himself.

    I have to believe that there is some cocky offensive coordinator out there that can design an offense around Vick's strengths. It would also help if Atlanta had receivers that didn't drop the ball.

    That criticism he gets now probably seems unfair to him after having his ass kissed for years. Many of the same people who hyped Vick beyond belief (mostly national TV types) have now realized they hitched their wagon to the wrong horse. Both Vick and those members of the media are frauds.

    I agree. The comment was made because of the way Vick is being treated in most of the "Major media."

    Vick is one of the best QBs in the league. who wouldn't get an attitude under the ver conditions you mentioned.

    Vick is a product of circumstance, TO is simply a problem. Thanks for helping me point that out.

    one of the best qbs in the league? like, what, top 20?

    I'd say top 10, around 7 or so. On ht e basis of raw talent, that is. Sure, some QBs look better, but they have a MUCH better supporting cast around them
