    Steelers cut Porter, Bly to the Broncos, Saints cut Horn, Neal & Alstott resigned by the Chargers and Bucs and Bill Parcells will join ESPN as an analyst.

    Nah, bring Horn to the ATL. Vick needs someone besides Crumpler who can actually CATCH the ball...

    Hey. If you saw any of the highlights last year Vick was putting the ball on the receivers' hands and the receivers proceeded to put the ball on the ground.

    Is Vick polished? No. But, as opposed to many other seasons, it was the receivers and not necessarily Vick that were costing the Falcons' games

    How come they catch the balls when Schaub throws them? Vick is amazing at running the ball, but he's been digressing as a passer.

    Best trade the Chargers ever made to unload the pick for him for the NFL's greatest back in a few years and a better qb in drew brees.

    and then they hired Norv turner

    Such good drafts in recent years, I hope they don't waste LTs window with a coaching carousel

    i think this is an excellent trade for them. they needed to fill the position opposite of champ after the slaying of darrent williams. also unload whatever they were paying bell to cough up the football 1 or 2 times a game. they will still get well over a 1000 yards rushing this year even if it is by committee. crazy fast lbs and an unbelievable secondary will go far to help out the young cutler grow. add veteran wrs and a great blocking scheme and we just may be contenders again. is it football season yet?

    Because Vick has a cannon of an arm and Shaub doesn't

    vick is over-rated. He's an amazing runner, he's a below average passer. He's had 1 year with a passer rating over 80 (it was 82).

    How many different OCs and head coaches has he gone through though? Maybe if he could be in the same system for more than a year or two, he'd put up better numbers. Also, under Mora, he wasn't allowed to audible, that's gotta hurt.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
