Enough, Already! Let's Move Past Vick and His Time With The Falcons!

OK, unless I've missed something along the way, Michael Vick is no longer a member of the Atlanta Falcons.

So why do we keep seeing article after article appear on Atlanta Falcons related pages (including this one) on Vick and his future in the NFL?

Last time I looked, the Falcons have a new QB and a pretty good one at that. One that could very well on his way to becoming the league's next Peyton Manning.

Matt Ryan is the Falcons QB not Michael Vick.

Ryan and the Falcons are poised to make a run at the playoffs, and Vick isn't even a member of the team. So why the endless articles about Vick, in relation to his previous employer?

I hope someone signs Vick, and I'm confident this will happen sooner rather than later. Maybe then we can stop seeing Vick on Falcon-related Web pages, and finally associate him with his new employer.

Where can I comment?
