“Atlanta Falcons players;
Out of my respect for you, I am letting you know, with a heavy heart, I resigned today as the Head Coach of the Atlanta Falcons. This decision was not easy but was made in the best interest of me and my family. While my desire would have been to finish out what has been a difficult season for us all, circumstances did not allow me to do so. I appreciate your hard work and wish the best.
Atlanta Falcon’s coach Bobby Petrino abruptly quit yesterday after Monday night’s loss to the Saints. Most people say “Good Riddance!” but are we really suprised? Petrino during his first year as head coach of an NFL organization has 10 losses! Not impressive at all…and his history suggests that he has done this over and over again. All I have to say is….return to college Petrino…I’m sure we can do better without you. Hell…we can’t do any WORSE!!!
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)
Falcons player, Roddy White showed his support by displaying a home-made “Free Mike Vick” t-shirt worn under his jersey. There were also several player’s in attendance sporting their Michael Vick Jerseys. We still love you Mike! Keep your head up!!!
Breaking News – Former Atlanta Falcon Michael Vick has been offically sentenced to 23 months in jail for his role in a dog fighting operation.
The sentence, handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson, ended an eight-month legal odyssey for Vick that saw him go from NFL star and the face of the Atlanta Falcons franchise to a prison inmate. The sentence on federal felony charges means Vick, suspended indefinitely by the NFL, won’t play again until at least 2010. He still faces the league suspension. He has also been indicted in Virginia on state dogfighting charges and faces lawsuits from several banks. The Falcons are awaiting an arbitration ruling in an attempt to recoup $20 million in bonus money paid to Vick. (Source-AJC)
I’m kind of relieved because I thought it would be a lot more. Let’s keep Mike in our prayers….he’s gonna need it.
