More Vick bashing at ESPN

Postby AngryJohnny51 » Thu Oct 27, 2005 3:37 pm

4. Monday night I couldn't decide which was more embarrassing: Michael Vick's performance or Jim Mora's coaching.



Never has a team that produces four sacks, an interception, a 155-yard rusher and a 20-0 second-quarter lead been as unimpressive as the Falcons were against the Jets.



Don't get me wrong. I liked everything about the Falcons except Vick and Mora. Vick simply cannot pass, and I couldn't figure out late in the third quarter and throughout the fourth why Mora was allowing Vick to attempt to throw the football.



The Jets could've easily rallied and won that game, thanks to Vick's Frerotte-like passing. If Vick ever plays quarterback in a Super Bowl, I'll be shocked.



The solution to Atlanta's No. 1 receiver problem spells his name M-I-C-H-A-E-L V-I-C-K.

Wow, Vick has to be the criticized athlete in America. I don't see near this much press on Harrington or Carr, who aren't half the QB Vick already is.

its a reaction to all the hype and vick-o-philes who've practically deified him. as been said before, the only thing that will shut the uber-critics up is if he wins the superbowl or puts up good passing numbers. hell, they prolly still find reasons to critisize him.

Harrington never got any love by the press. I don't understand why they don't ride Carr at all. Of course there is the convenient excuse that his offensive line is the worst in football and you can't complete passes while horizontal. But I do think Carr gets the overrated stamp.

Maybe, maybe not. I don't follow the Texans too much, but one thing I do know is that they are a really poor team. Carr doesn't stand much of a chance with that line.

yeah I don't think Carr has even had a chance to show what he can or cannot do....why the Texans havn't done a thing to fix that line is beyond me...

i'm not getting into something like that other Vick thread now.

Vick wins games, i'm his biggest fan for that. anybody who thinks we should be starting Schaub needs to have his head examined.

He still can't pass though, LOL. it's no big deal, just move on.
