Presco slams Vick, touts Brees (Merged)

But Brees can do something Vick can't, which is to put his foot in the ground, scan a field and find the open receiver...It's called passing the football...Oh, but they have all those Vick run-around highlights to hang their hat on.

Forget Vick's flash, streaking Saints loving hot Brees

ATLANTA -- The coaches will talk about schemes and blitzes and coverage and formations and all that stuff Monday when they evaluate the New Orleans Saints' 31-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

But I can save them all the analysis and sum up why the game went the way it did. Here goes: One team can pass the football; the other can't.

It's that simple.

I don't think we can delete our own threads.

But you posted it first anyways. Mine should be deleted/merged.

But, but, but...I thought Prisco hated the Saints. Isn't that what everyone on this board said? :shrug:

No, we can't delete our own threads on this board. I forgot. :)

I loved this left-handed compliment by Prisco:

"Michael Vick continued to show he's the best single-wing quarterback in the league..."

:hahahaha:

Great article. Was anyone else worried when it looked like Vick might be injured late in the game? The last thing I wanted was a Falcon QB who could pass in the game at that point. lol

"That's asking a lot, especially since the Pee Wee game on the Georgia Dome field following Sunday's game probably had better designed offenses than what the Falcons use."

Damn!!

The guy that left the message after the article is right. Vick is a very exciting player. Truly a human highlight reel. The media is so quick to jump on a good story and quick to get off of it. A month ago the media was gaagaa over Vick's newfound throwing ability. Now the media has reverted to the same old habits, as has Vick. But it isn't Vick's fault that his receivers can't catch the ball. Had the receiver caught that underthrown ball, the outcome could have been different.

I am ecstatic that Brees plays for the Saints. But Vick is not the problem in Atlanta, it's the coaches who don't know how to properly use him and the receivers who cannot catch a cold. Vick will be in Atlanta next year, Mora Jr. won't be.

Get used to it with the media. The past two weeks the Saints have been left for dead by the media. Now all of a sudden we're in vogue again now that we've won a game. The media is such a fickle bunch.
