Blank Speaks Out Again Against QB Vick

It appears that you can add Falcons owner Arthur Blank on the list of those that are clearly no longer a fan of Falcons QB Michael Vick. While everyone sits and waits to see if Vick will accpet a plea bargin deal in his dogfighting case, Blank spoke out against his franchise player before the Falcons took the field Friday night vs the Buffalo Bills. The first thing Blank pointed out to the AP flat out was that Vick lied to him. “What’s suggested in those statements of fact don’t match up with what the league was told, even our organization and certainly not what was said to the commissioner,” Blank said.

Friday was a stressful day enough for Vick, who has been in contact recently with his teammates from Atlanta. Two of his co-defendants early in the day took a plea deal and basically came out against Vick and said that he was a huge part of the ring that police uncovered a few months back. Then his owner comes out and throws him under the bus as well? You can for sure say that Vick has seen better days.

“It’s sad that those allegations exist and now they are confirmed by others,” Blank said. “It’s sad that Michael has put himself into that kind of situation. It’s his responsibility for putting himself into that situation.”

    We need a new QB. Bottom line. Lets 4 one second forget about Vick, and think about the future of the Atlanta Falcons. The need for a QB is obvious. We ourselves as fans have allowed the dogs to interfere with what Michael’s job was in the first place. It was to be an effective quarterback. Period. Michaels future now has nothing to do with football. Arthur Blank, the Atlanta Falcons, and the NFL have to make the decision about the life of the team, and the life of Vick as a NFL player, just as Michael Vick has done with his life. Vick had to do what was necessary, and so do the Falcons.
