Found October 26, 2012 on CJ Sports NFL Talk:
Like a lot of NFL fans, I am a big fan of the Madden NFL video game franchise. I recently let go of my copy of Madden 2004 that I had stubbornly held onto for eight years. Falcons fans everywhere remember the significance of that edition of Madden: Michael Vick was on the cover and he was wearing a Falcons jersey. Remember how good that felt? Everyone had to give the Falcons respect. Finally, the Falcons had an explosive athlete who was a threat to score anytime that he touched the ball, much like Deion was in his day. Even better, you didn’t look like a homer when you chose the Falcons to play with on the game because with Michael Vick the Falcons had a sexy, legitimate ”Madden” offense. The kind of offense that gave you security because you never felt like you didn’t have the ammunition to keep up in a shootout when you played a skilled gamer.

Week 8 NFL Picks: TSHQ Style

The first half of the season is coming to an end, and a few key points have become abundantly clear: NFC East Mike Vick is done. Tom Caughlin hates fumblers.
