See. Vick is a coach killer.

RE: Mora jr. FIRED
 
Yes he is, Mora Sr. was right, If it would have been up to me I would have traded Vick away instead of firing Mora, the Falcons will continue to struggle as along as Vick is the QB.
Vick is there to sell tickets, period.

"Vick is there to sell tickets, period."

When I read this, ltf, I could't help but imagine vikie before next year's season opener at his new gig at the Atlanta Falcon's ticket booth, eying the concession stand seeing if he could rush there and back in time for his supervisor not to notice.. :lol: :fanclub: :fanclub: :fanclub: :fanclub: :fanclub: :fanclub:

LOL Kuke...

That's funny!! :lol:

Vick selling tickets?, he wouldn't have much room in the booth to run around in.

I don't think this was Vick. I think Mora fired himself with those comments about the Washington job.

If you've noticed how hands on Blank is, you had to know Mora's radio interview was going to be unforgiveable.

i wonder how many coaches will be fired because vick just isn't a good nfl qb.

JOESAM2002 01-01-2007 08:08 PM

I hate to see him go. He was our best secret weapon! As far as Vick is concerned, I don't think he'll ever be a consistant QB. Far be it a great one. Remember who his cousin is!

This is a true statement and also when you have an athlete at QB you really need to play to his strength and incorporate the traditional QB qualities as the season goes on. There are a few coaches who do this well and off top that comes to mind is Fisher for the Titians, see McNair and now V.Young

.. . Mr. Blank is not "hands on", he's meddlesome. You do not grab your coach's shoulder and decide to have a chat with him during a game. Period.

... and, Mora Jr did play to Vick's strength, running the ball in space, as evidenced by Vick breaking the 1000 yard rushing mark. Don't you remember the early season hype about the unstoppable Falcons running attack? The problem for the Falcons is, that's the ONLY strength Vick has. Vick does not have QB skills.

..and do not put Steve Mcnair in the same sentence.
With Vick and Young.
McNair has QB skills. He's a well rounded QB who happened to be mobile.
Vick doesn't have QB skills. And Vince Young, so far he's shown he can run, but let's see how well he does the next couple of years.
