The Germans have a lovely tendency to reduce complicated concepts to single words, which often run on for 20 to 30 letters. It's the best language to help me conceive a title for yet another post on Michael Vick's excellent off-season. Don Banks, who was last seen claiming that the Falcons were going to trade up to take Calvin Johnson, has now piled onto Vick through a series of unnamed sources. Those sources claim, among other things, that Vick has been coddled by Arthur and Stephanie Blank, that he has a prima donna attitude, that his behavior has gotten worse since his mother moved from Atlanta to Virginia, and that Vick is most definitely interested in dog fighting. None of this is at all surprising, but the article is a nice summary for the time capsule of where Mike Vick's career stands right now.
