Totally irrelevant and overkill.

Speaking of which, the sports media carrying stories on Vicks dogs in 2010 is lame as hell and shows the lengths these media companies that are all ran and operated by people who dont look like him will go to villainize a black athlete for profit. Even after he's paid his debt to society and has set out to be a positive figure, the script still calls for the "black quarterback" to be the villain. And with how light we've seen the media go on superstar white athletes wrangled in legal issues, and how quickly they brush the news away, the sports media's cred is very low right now when it comes to "moral judgement".

KT, I agree with you that the medio should let the stories go. Vick paid his debt and is now moving on with his life. However, I do not agree that the reason that the media is still on him is due to his race. A white QB woudl be treated the same way if he had done the things that Vick did.

Ironic considering his record vs Carolina.....

i never said that vick never beat us, he did that quite often, sometimes single-handedly, but, he never beat the panthers by having a good day passing the football. he always killed us by running all over us, along with norwood.

when vick was in ATL, he threw the football too hard, and his receivers had a hard time holding onto it. i think he has learned to put a little more touch on the football now.

Meh.....hard to say Kolb sucks after only throwing 10 passes behind an o-line that is a turnstile and then he gets knock out with a concussion. No pocket passer would survive back there. Might be blind faith, but I still am a believer in Kolb but am glad to see Vick getting the start. At least he can run around long enough to survive. Putting Kolb back there would be an injustice to him right now.
