    i think vick should play RB. that way atlanta could run all kinds of plays where vick gets the ball on a HB toss and throws down
    the field like Tomlinson does in San Diego.

    In Vick's defense, he should of had a lot more passing yards yesterday but the receivers dropped numerous balls. But still, he is not that good of a QB

    Or wide receiver he is so fast and he would have a great yards after catch average.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Ron Mexico 'speechless'

    I was thinking the other day..

    some1 should put a new QB in his spot.. and use Vick as a RB.. he's got the legs, and the moves.. and if he see's a possiblity he can always throw it better then most rb's.


    he'd be dangerous that way..

    vick is a great QB for the falcons, and he wins games for them. plain and simple, their ratio of games theyve won with him and without him is staggernig. as much as i dislike vick, he wins the falcons games and THAT is consistent.

    if he's really that lucky i sure hope its contagious
    ;D
    Do you have any supporting information for your ratio claim above?


    Vick should be converted to WR as soon as possible.
    His arm is scatter-shot at best - lots of velocity with little accuracy.
    And they haven't won anything meaningful with him at the helm.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    EXCEPT that LT is MORE accurate than Vick is!

    VICK TRADE COULD BE PULLED OFF, AFTER JUNE 1

    Although we saw images of an apparently contrite Michael Vick apologizing for the images of an obscene gesture he aimed in the direction of paying customers and their kids on Sunday at the Georgia Dome, the broader question remains, as we see it, whether Vick's time in Atlanta is drawing to a close.

    We predicted, even before Vick's meltdown, that he'll ask to be traded after the 2006 season.
    But the prevailing sentiment in league circles is that the Falcons would be unable to trade or release Vick, due to the salary cap ramifications arising from the big-money signing bonus he received a couple of years ago.

    We've gotten our eyes on his numbers, and the prevailing sentiment is accurate.
    To a point.

    Trading Vick before June 1, 2007 would trigger a mind-numbing cap charge of $22.25 million.
    The dead money, factoring in the $6 million salary Vick wouldn't be paid in 2007, would be $15.75 million.

    However, if the Falcons were to make the move after June 1, the cap charge for 2007 would drop to $7.57 million, with a net hit of $1.57 million.
    The transaction would actually create $6 million in 2007 cap space.

    The problem would arise in 2008, when the Falcons would be hit with $14.68 million in cap charges.
    The dead money, based on a Vick's salary of $7.5 million, would be $7.18 million.

    Still, if the salary cap gets to $115 million by 2008, the dead money would be roughly six percent of the team's available player payroll for the season.
    And by 2009, he'd be completely off of the books.

    So if Vick wants out, and if the team is willing to let him out, a trade would be feasible after June 1.


    (Greg Aiello, NFL spokesman, tells us that, although the new CBA allows the cap hit for a trade made after June 1 to be spread over two years, the rule that allows teams to release up to two players before June 1 and process the move as a post-June 1 transaction does not apply to trades.)

    Of course, the bigger question would be whether anyone else would willing to take on Vick's contract, which has salaries of $6 million in 2007, $7.5 million in 2008, $9 million in 2009, $10.5 million in 2010, $12 million in 2011, $12.5 million in 2012, and $13.5 million in 2013.

    Our guess?
    There's a certain team that wears silver and black with an owner who has always loved renegade players (especially really fast ones).
    How about Randy Moss and a third-round pick for Vick?
    Moss has said wanted to come to Atlanta in 2005, and we believe that the team wasn't interest in Moss primarily because they weren't interested in creating a scenario in which, with a high-end receiver, Vick would have been further exposed as an underperforming passer.

    With Matt Schaub elevating into the position of starter, Moss is the kind of guy that the Falcons would want on the field, especially in a West Coast attack that thrives off of a field-stretcher who can open up the underneath routes.

    And from a P.R. standpoint, the Falcons would be swapping out one NFL icon for another.
    So the seats in the Georgia Dome would still be filled, at least for 2007.

    Like many other things, this one makes far too much sense to ever happen.

    Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please. Mark Twain
