    I reported this on the show a few weeks ago, I thought it was dead but it looks like its being revived with a vengenance.


    The Oakland Raiders are preparing to make a run at Falcons QB Michael Vick, according to NFL sources. The Raiders package would include receivers Randy Moss and Jerry Porter plus the No.1 overall pick in the 2007 draft for Vick and the Falcons first round pick (10th overall).

    Bring him on. Like I said when they got all wet about Randy, unless he can throw, catch, run, block, not to mention COACH, it's not going to make a difference.

    With Schaub they are in the playoffs easy. He's solid. The Anti-Vick.

    Good trade for both teams. Oakland gets an erratic playmaker who can at least give them a chance to win any given game with the way their defense plays and they also save enough money for Al Davis to be mummified and buried in a 2 tonne 24 karrat gold tomb.

    I guess it has gone full circle now. The Falcons drafted him #1, and we got LT out of the deal, now they want to get rid of him for a #1 and some players?

    Moss and Porter.


    Now who would Vick have as an out when he cant run, and when Merriman is breathing down his neck?

    what I had heard prior to this news was that Bobby petrinno wanted to give Vick one more shot at a system and if that didn't work then he's gone. But if its 22.5mil then there's no way the Falcons will take on that burden

    Is he going to have any receivers to throw to? I mean, that was most of the problems he had in Atlanta.

    Let's see, w/out Jerry or Randy he'd be left with Whitted and, hmm, i dunno who else they've got. The'd have to sign someone, and yes, Vick's excuse in ATL is the lack of decent recievers (I say it's more a lack of having a smart Qb).

    I heard that on ESPN last night. ALT does not have the Cap$$ to do the trade or cut him.

    So unless there is some Cap Magic, this is a dead story.

    Heh. This would be a sweetheart of a deal - for the rest of the AFC West.

    Without the Atlanta running game, Vick would be forced to throw. Subtract Oakland's only real recieving threats in Moss and Porter, and you have Vick trying to throw to Gabriel and Whitted.

    We all know how that'd go.

    But, as others have stated, the cap implications would probably make this a no-deal. Wouldn't mind if it happened, though.

    No no no, thats not the half of it. Their probably gonna end up giving their draft pick for him. Which leaves...... NO OFFENSIVE LINE!!!! And to add on that, the salary cap will take a huge hit depending on who else is part of the deal.

    Note to Al Davis: YOU NEED BLOCKERS FIRST

    If I were a Falcons fan, I would be totaly psycked about this!!

    Though if I were the Falcons, I would ask for their #1, #2 and Porter.

    Oh, the irony. This from PFT:


    I actually wouldn't be suprised to see this happen; the Raiders once again blow it on a big name guy who is not worth it.

    Despite our playoff collapse we did win the AFC West and that's something to be proud of. Do you want me to change it? Is it like your calling card? It's the very first one on the list.

    You kidding me? If the this is some pub story than it will sell tickets, but will not win championships. If Vick was this good, he would of led his team atleast to division titles.

    That's great. Now our defense can send Vick into early retirement, and put the Raiders playoff chances back another 1000 years.

    I believe the falcons would take something like a 22.8 mil cap hit if they trade him this year. probly won't happen.
