I turn to TMQ this week for a comical reprieve from the endless Vick stories. He spends most of the article reviewing the NFC for the upcoming season. But when he reviews Atlanta we get an 11 paragraph rant on Vick and dogfighting with no relevant information about the TEAM he is supposedly reviewing for the upcoming season aka the Atlanta Falcons. The only informational piece is a two sentence paragraph stating that BP is starting off with a recruiting class after an 11 man draft.

I'm disappointed TMQ.... Very disappointed.

Gregg Easterbrook is without question one of the best sports journalists out there. I was very disappointed when ESPN jettison him and it was almost impossible to find TMQ for an entire season. Eventually NFL.com picked him up and ESPN couldn't stand it and brought him back.

The NFL world celebrates.

I agree that Easterbrock is one of, if not the, best writers on sports. His articles are thoughtful and well researched (one might even say cerebral). I have to say that I agree with much of what he wrote about the Vick situation. I am also disapointed that he did not have much to say about the Falcons. I was prepared to post the article myself when I saw that it was already posted. Awfully hard to get ahead of this group!
