    Yah, the Miami Herald cretin got tooled. Hope Darlington reams out his "very reliable (sic) NFL source" who told him he saw Vick on the practise field in Foxboro. Here's the hilarious claims and egg on face retraction by Jeff Darlington...

    Rollout



    And El Presidente at Barstool Sports got pwned by an emailer who sent him a phone camera capture of Vick at Gillette. Only it turned out that it was a months old pic of Vick copied from the internet. Got the Patsfans guppies panties all atwist though.

    I just don't get how this can dominate the NFL news cycle if there's absolutely nothing to it.

    Look at the daily Favre watch in 2008, or how there was new rumor or allegation related to spygate nearly every day during the 2007 season. Who knows, maybe Ben Roethlisberger's agent started the rumor and Mike Tomlin was the very reliable NFL source.

    It's a brilliant diversion if Rthlsbrgr's folks are behind the Vick news blasts. :)

    That WOULD be a great move. Where were these handlers when Kobe & Mike Tyson needed them ?

    Belichick is the zen master of the evasive answer, It takes him a paragraph to say maybe. Example:

    “You know I think we would consider...” said Belichick. “We’re coaching the players that we have on the field right now, so that’s who is here. So, anybody who isn’t here is there potential that they could be here? Yeah, there probably is. But right now they’re not.

    “We’re coaching the 80 players that are here, so until we get somebody else we’re coaching them. When we get somebody else in here, which I’m sure at some point we will, then we’ll coach them.

    Classic.

    I bolded the answer for you. 90% of news is made up of so called "facts" that have nothing to them.

    why would the Patriots want Vick? He was not a good qb two years ago why would he be now? For the wildcat? Take the ball out of the hands of the best player in the Nfl? Makes no since.

    Thanks folks--I appreciate the constructive feedback. Truth be told, I went back and forth on what to write about today. But it just seemed like Vick was the most intriguing story of the day, and how the roller coaster ride of rumor and wild speculation around him and the Pats that went from the morning until the evening. I'm no fan of the Favre-type speculation around a player, so that made me a little uncomfortable. But my hope was to give people a sense of how things ebbed and flowed throughout the day.

    Anyway, if you don't dig it, we also have some other stuff from today, like a look at Brady's Q&A and some notes about what went on in the morning session. Check it out on the site when you get a chance.

    I for one thought it was a timely topic Chris. We're just having fun with all the vick stuff here.

    Aye. Unfortunately there's not enough room in Gillette for that gorgeous rack. :(

    Thanks ... just hoping to give people some insight into the decision writers make as to what they want to write about.

    As for Burgess, my source tells me that it's still out there, but the Raiders asking price is too steep, at least right now.
