The Atlanta Falcon’s lost (yet again) to the New Orleans Saints last night (34-14) and are now 3-10. During player introductions, DeAngelo Hall displayed a Michael Vick while running to the field. He then took the poster to the sideline and taped it to the back of the bench, facing the crowd. A member of the Falcon’s public relations staff removed the poster after the first quarter.
Hall also wrote “MV7” (for Michael Vick #7) in his eye black.
“We did that because we wanted to let him know that we’re still thinking about him,” Hall said. “That was my personal thing. I wanted to let him know he’s not forgotten. We kind of, I don’t want to say as a franchise, don’t want to acknowledge the situation, but it’s kind of the way you feel. All the pictures are gone. No more jerseys. No more nothing. We need to let him know we still care about him.” (Source)
