It’s time we question Mike Vick’s heart

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

So let me get this straight: Last week, Tony Romo led his team on a marvelous come-from-behind victory while playing with a cracked rib and a punctured lung. This past Sunday, Michael Vick sat on the sidelines, watching his team lose because he had a bruised non-throwing hand? You have to be kidding me.

These guys are supposed to be some of the toughest guys in the world and Michael Vick proved otherwise against the Giants. Even if he was told that his hand was fractured – which was the initial diagnosis – it’s just his right hand. He throws with his left, remember.

A few seasons back, Kurt Warner played with his non-throwing arm basically in a sling due to an injury. Last week, Dallas’ Felix Jones played with his arm in a sling after separating his shoulder, and running backs need both arms more than QBs do.

So, what’s Vick’s excuse for sitting on the sidelines and watching Mike Kafka struggle?

Just like everybody questioned Jay Cutler’s heart when he couldn’t come back in to the NFC Championship last January, why aren’t we ripping apart Vick right now for doing basically the exact same thing?

And don’t even get me started on him complaining about not getting calls. That just sounded like sour grapes from a guy that was upset about getting “hurt.”

This week: 6-9 (With Washington +5 tonight)
This season: 20-26-1
