PSSSHHHRRR87 Posted September 13, 2011 Share Posted September 13, 2011 Any fan of The Falcons that wear Vick #7 jerseys are NOT Falcon fans! Matt Ryan has done more for The Falcons than Vick in the 4 years he has been in ATL! Remember when Vick gave the finger to all the fans after that game? Remember when he murdered numerous amount of dogs? Remember when he got caught at an airport with a pipe? Remember the GQ interview?! Matt Ryan was/is so much smarter as a QB than Vick will ever be! Vick is a great athlete but a worthless person and The Eagles will find that out and regret giving him such a high paycheck! Come on! Anyone who supports this guy is not a Falcons fan and not a true dog lover like I am. I hope The Falcons D rips him a new one and make him regret coming back to ATL!Sincerely,A TRUE Falcons fan!First off, and I say this with no disrespect and I am not trying to be rude, buy if you want to talk about being a dog-lover then go join a PETA forum. We talk Falcons-football here... If Vick likes fighting dogs and smoking pot on his own time, then so be it. He made plays while he was in Atlanta and that's all I care about. Second, I do agree that anyone still wearing a Vick jersey should become an Eagles fan already (time to move on folks) and, yes, Ryan has done more for this football team in the past four years than Vick did in his entire career (outside of winning a playoff game), but Ryan never did for the city of Atlanta what Vick did. Vick brought a superstar talent and made Falcons football exciting. People didn't come to the games to root for the Falcons, they came to see Vick run around and make plays. Vick was almost treated like a child of the city. He lost games, we forgave him. He flipped us off, we forgave him. He got arrested and moved the Falcons to the lowest point in 20 years (although Petrino ditching after 13 games didn't help either), we gave him tough love by cutting him. Its just how this city is as a whole; the only TEAM Atlanta supports is the Braves. Also, in that GQ interview, Vick stated that he did not blame Atlanta for cutting him and holds no grudge. I seriously believe that the man has turned the corner and has changed his life for the better. I believe people are allowed second chances. I hate that he had to receive his second chance at the Falcons expense, but we have recovered nicely. The Falcons are actually a TEAM now and not just ONE PLAYER. Now if the Falcons were still a 4-12 team, then I would bash him a little, but it doesn't matter now... It's not like we are the Cavs trying to get back at LeBron or anything...
