Everyone knows the deal. No Vick No Wins. Let write off this season. Harrington in three years with his 3rd team. Get Over It.!!

By getting rid of Vick..the Falcons are winners. Check out Vick's record...he really wasn't that good..look at his sack stats for one thing. The Falcons will re-group & be a much better team without the sadist!!

Trish my dear you have to learn football, the Falcons are dead without Vick. I will be surprised if we win 5 games. Harrington is a loser, we need Vick. So hating, let the man do his time and come back and help our team.

Mel my dear I do know about football. My opinion is different than yours. You may be right about about this year only time will tell but the Falcons will get better, they just need to regroup. Teams have winning years & losing years..it's the nature of the game. The Falcons will overcome the disgrace & discord brought to them by Vick...they will be a winning team again & they can & will do it without Vick. BTW--I don't hate Vick.. He's a thug loser...always has been, always will be. ""Hubris"" "

Vick entered the NFL in 2001, didnt play much that year. 2002 he took the Falcons to the playoffs and handed the Green Bay Packers their first ever home playoff loss. I saw that game and it was pretty much Michael Vick that beat the Packers. 2003 missed 11 games due to fractured right fibula. 2004 Michael Vick took the Falcons to the NFC championship game. 2005-2006 werent very good years for the Falcons but Vick did make the pro bowl in 2005.

If you look at ANY hall of fame QB's stats, Dan Marino, John Elway, Brett Favre, Joe Montana. They ALL have a couple years that their numbers and team records werent very good.

To say the Falcons looked like crap WITH Vick is pretty ignorant. He is the best quarterback the Falcons have had since Steve Bartkowski 1975-1984...

best thing the Falcons could do for this year is sign Byron Leftwich to replace Harrington..

Who the hell cares whether or not that freak bastard was a good quarterback or not? What has this got to do with his brutal treatment of helpless animals? Are you for real or are you just changing the subject so we may forget what that barbaric sick bastard did to animals? That doesn't change the fact that he brutally tortured and killed poor helpless animals by hanging,electrocuting, drowning and enjoyed the screaming pains of those poor animals while they were being torured and dying. What does that tell you in your mind? Whether or not he is a good or bad quarterback does not enter this picture or forum as he is sick barbaric evil, and uncivilized monster who should be tortured in the same manner he tortured and killed those poor helpless animals and then rot in jail.

I hate to tell you this but by the time that sick sadistic bastard gets out of jail, if he gets out at all, he will be in no shape to play football ever again after his new friend "bubbas" get through with him. If that's all the punishment he gets for the torture and killing of poor helpless animals, he should be thankful as what he did to these animals for his own personal pleasure is not only digusting, but sadistic,evil,barbaric,uncivil ized and cannibalistic. Do you still want him on your team?

Sure Vick has wiggle and speed. And a strong arm. But no touch, little accuracy, and a complete inability to read defenses. In short, he is not a good NFL QB. Make him a WR or RB and use him as a gimmick player. Or better yet, TRADE HIM and beef up your O-line. The Falcons screwed up by not trading Vick and keeping Schaub. Meanwhile, Trish is correct. Atlanta was no better with Vick, and now the team is certainly better off without him. Word.

Trish, you obviously know nothing about football if you think the Falcons will get back to their winning ways. We just want two back to back winning seasons. I'll be happy for that as a start.

Oh by the way, how many football players do you know that aren't a bit sadistic.

Trish go back to the NFL.com and study more. Your knowledge of the game is really hurting me. I came here to discuss football with more falcon's fans and here I've found more villify vick fans.

Pay no attention to Trish and Rose. They have been trolling through the forums looking for anything about Mike Vick. Then the spew their animal loving venom out hoping to win some converts and to like the Mob persuade the Judge and Goodell to punish Vick severely. She and Rose are why Vick is no longer playing and is looking at a possible 18 month sentence.

I figure he wasn't able to read the defense because he didn't have Bill Belicheat as a coach.

Actually you probably came here to argue. If my knowledge of the game hurts you---don't read my posts. Vick was not a great QB..he did not contribute that much to the team..as I said before..the team was no better or worse with or without him.
Vick is no longer playing football & may be facing jail time because of his own actions & it has nothing to do with people's opinions.
