Time to take a page from Sherman's playbook: That which is still standing should be burnt to the ground. Start from square 1.
My guess is that any of the players who were "supporting" Vick last night (hello Roddy White) are gone by the start of the 2008-2009 season. Even if it means eating contracts.
And in an interesting bit of symmetry, I say the Falcons take Darren McFadden from Arkansas with their #1 pick.
(Kinda like they took the DL from Arkansas w/ their #1 pick last year...)
I'm trying to remember a sports franchise that has gone down in flames as quickly as the Falcons have in the past 12 months. Sure, the Marlins have had some doozy fire sales. And other teams have been more inept on the court/rink/field.
(Hello Golden State Warriors & Pittsburgh Pirates...).
But seriously, the crash & burn at the Georgia Dome & in Flowery Branch has been absolutely epic in the past 12 months.
