Yes, the worm has definitely turned on Mike Vick. Now that the media has abandoned him, expect Arthur Blank and the Falcons to follow suit, after an 'open competition' in training camp. Matt Schaub is a restricted free agent; there are going to be a number of teams willing to offer top dollar for his services, so the Falcons are going to find themselves in quite the quandry: match those offers dollar for dollar only to keep Schaub on the bench, or trade or bench the finger-throwing pot-smuggling can't run an offense Vick and name Matt Schaub the starter? Unfortunately for Vick, he has done just enough to be able to justify his demotion with his off the field behavior, giving Blank and the Falcons plausible deniability that it is linked to his on the field performance, thereyby ensuring a decent return on any trade offers. At least that's what I think will happen.
