P-L-E-A-S-E report on our team WITHOUT referencing Michael Vick being indicted in dogfighting. Believe it or not, we know. Our season is history, our future is not. See you on Sunday, for the whole game.

Amen to that. Clean out the rest of the Prima Donna Mike Vick locker room cancer. That can take Joe Horn with them. Only when the Falcons are rid of the "Me First beacuse I'm Special" attitude can the new coach and GM (who ever they are) start to build a team and not a Thu.g group. They need more players with class and character like Warrick Dunn.

You can't build a team around one player And expect to win. Let's get some "TEAM PLAYERS" this time around.

Yet the Saga continues! Though we should NEVER wish bad on anything or anybody...I must say Karma has its way of making it's presents...Is it me? Or is it every since the sentencing of Michael Vick the Falcons has been faced with more and more DRAMA...They're facing the last game of the season and we can't even watch it... and how ironic... the team they are playing against is the team JIM MORA helps coach- the same coach that was FIRED Last YEAR for Babying Michael Vick!!!

If you sit still things will work out like its supposed to...like it will for Michael...he will be given a second chance and with the support of more POSITIVE influences around him he will be better than Ever!!!
Hopefully The Falcons...Arthur...Rodger...an d Rich...realize the importance of SUPPORT when needed... cause they need it now...More than VICK!!!
LOYALTY...the one thing they really need to work on...Even when Petrino left the team...the team spoke poorly of his action and stated they didn't like him anyway...Even Warrick Dunn spoke out...and when was the last time any of us heard anything from Warrick? True enough the way Petrino left could have been more tactful...But what the Falcons need to learn is: You Praise and Console in the PUBLIC's EYE (MEDIA) you CRITICIZE and CONDEMN In PRIVATE!!! They still should not have spoke negative against Petrino to the media...where has the class gone for this team... They didn't Console Vick when he needed it the most...so its obvious they need to be coached on team ETHICS!!!

Pretty judgemental considering the gist of your comment was that we shouldn't be so judgemental.

By the way, the Falcons problems started long before the sentencing of Vick, in fact, prior to the sentencing of Vick, most of the drama on the team was directly related to Vicks antics off the field.

As for consoling Vick, they did, for the first few chapters of his off-field antics... remember? They quit consoling them when he continued on with his antics, lied to his team owner and teammates, and played the 'poor me' card. You folks in this so-called "New Order" really need to take a reality check.

Wait a second. Don't get too excited just yet.
Let's look at this logically:

In order to be #1, there must be a #2.
Since there is no #2, there cannot be a #1.
Therefore, you must be the ONLY ONE.

We almost got Vick. We ended up with Tomlinson. We are pretty happy with the trade.:-)

You need a reality check as well. All athletes are coddled, not just Vick. Don't call him out when you can go to any college town and the Coach of the football team is the greatest hero around. Where were you with your self righteousness when Ray Lewis was on trial for murder, gave a plea and walked right back on to the football field. Give me a break...You feel me?

What part of the statement is obscure? You were taking about Vick's antics. The Chargers are happy that they didn't get Vick. Insread, we got Tomlinson, because of a draft order trade, or something.

Thats what I thought, just wasn't sure if there was some implied meaning....

Not being a Georgian, and far from a Falcon fan by any means, I am glad San Diego didn't get him either

1) You are incorrect in assuming I am a Falcons fan.
2) Your analogy regarding football coaches has what to do with my post, or the original post I responded to?
3) I was against Lewis copping a plea and being allowed back into football, so your comment about self-righteousness was pretty far off base.
4) I DO NOT need to give you a break, as you are the idiot that jumped into my post, knowing absolutely nothing about what was being discussed.
5) Get over it.
