Falcons Wondering What Future Holds From Fan Base

Vick

The Falcons are ready for anything tomorrow night as they take on the Bengals at the Georgia Dome.  It will be the first game at the Dome without Michael Vick.  The QB that for the last few years was the franchise will enter his guilty plea in a federal courtroom on Monday morning.  From there, it will be interesting to see what kind of reaction the rest of the Falcons get on Monday night.  “We just want people to come out and support us and give us an opportunity to show them what we have,” Falcons running back Warrick Dunn said. “To me, if they are true Falcons fans, they are going to support us, no matter what happened off the field. Now everyone is concentrating on the guys who are here and getting better. Hopefully the fans are excited and will support the guys who will be playing.”

The team is taking an “us against the world attitude”, and it may be the only one that might work with having to answer question after question about their former QB.  “We’re keeping the focus,” receiver Joe Horn insisted. “We’re professionals. We have a job to do for our families, first of all, and for the organization. We owe it to our families, ourselves and to this owner to win football games — and that’s what we’ll do.”  Atlanta is seeking some $22 million back from Vick for his issues as part of his $130 million dollar deal.  That was the deal that he signed in 2004 that was supposed to lead him and the Falcons into the future.

“There will be some reports and people will talk about it, but I think everyone here is focused on football,” Dunn said. “We can’t control anything that happens that’s not here.”
