Source: Vick camp unaware of Reeves' efforts to reach out

Last week, former Falcons coach Dan Reeves told FanHouse that efforts to reach out to quarterback Mike Vick had been rebuffed.

“I’ve even written, and I’ve tried to make appointments to see him in prison, but they never got back to me,” Reeves told Terrence Moore of FanHouse.

The “they” in that quote isn’t clear.  But one source in position to know about whether there were efforts by Reeves to reach out says that there were none.

Where the truth lies in this one isn’t clear.  But it could get very interesting.

Either way, the word is out.  Reeves would like to talk to Vick.  Whether Vick feels the same way remains to be seen.

    Why don’t you just post all of your Vick crap in one ‘article’ like you do with the “one liners”? Why subject people to 25 ‘stories’ a day about a piece of sh*t person that doesn’t deserve the oxygen he’s given?

    Intercourse Mike Vick , he’s a sh!t stain on the NFL and the world.

    There can’t be too many counselors left in that “camp”.

    Let me see, do we believe Dan Reeves, a man who has always been known for being straightforward and for having character and integrity or do we believe ANYBODY who is associated with Mike Vick? My money would be on Mr. Reeves.
    Vick’s done his time paying the highest price EVER for the crimes he committed but unless he’s totally changed, and the jury’s still out on that, he’s always surrounded himself with thugs and wannabes so . . . . . . again, with no more information than we currently have on this situation, I’ll lean towards Coach Reeves.

    it’s better than a Favre story and at least w/ this one we don’t know the ending yet.

    full of hatin comments….He’s still coming back but you are not forced to watch when he does….Go fishing……

    Reeves problem was he was trying to contact M Vick… maybe he would have had better luck trying to get a hold of “Ron Mexico” instead.

    Florio, Do you write for As The World Turns too?

    Really dude this sounds like a script for a soap opera and not a football news site.

    So many Mike Vick haters…He isnt the first person in the world to make a mistake. Im not condoning what he did but the man has paid his dues, now let him move on with his life. And why is anyone making a fuss about Mr. Irrelevant (Dan Reeves)?! It’s been well over a decade since he was rellevant to to the game of football.

  13. Samuel L. Bronkowitz says: Jul 22, 2009 12:01 PM

    Vick didn’t “make a mistake” – a mistake is when you go to get the milk out of the fridge and drop it.
    Vick systematically engaged in an illegal dog-fighting enterprise that involved gambling, he smoked weed, he spread herpes, he flipped off the home fans, and then lied directly to the team owner and the commissioner about his activities.
    That would be a pattern of unacceptable behavior, not a “mistake.”
    And for the record I’m not a hater, I think he should be reinstated… if some team wants to take on that mess then let them.

    Should I assume this to be a racist comment that only white people who are redneck fisherman dont think Vick should play again? How about hating the man for running and illegal gambling ring which destorys his credibility then throw in that animal curelty. He is a piece of crap person and an asbolute terrible QB. Get over the race card fool, this clearly has nothing to do with it.

    You could say the same about the Redskins, but we talk about them anyway.

    AGREED! The only new content in this is the heading: “Source: Vick camp unaware of Reeves’ efforts to reach out.” I read the article 3 times looking for a quote or something. It is not like this is breaking news…. Could have waited until there is a quote or something from the source (Ron Mexico?)

    HailtotheRedskins,
    Mistake? I hardly call the action Vick did was a mistake. It is the same as knowing that selling drug is illegal and doing it anyway. It’s the same as knowing killing a man is wrong and unlawful but do it anyway. That kind of action doesn’t deserve a slap on your hand then pay the price and let all be forgotten. What kind of example would NFL be setting?
    Can’t blame people for hating someone like Vick just as some would hate Obama Bin Laden for 9/11. These kind of action can never be forgot! Never!

    Hey Dan (Reeves), if you want to reach out to Vick-tell him you own a dog!

  19. ZombieRevolution says: Jul 22, 2009 12:52 PM

    This is why PFT is no better than ESPN or any of the major sports news sites. “But one source in position to know…” By this one line you are calling into question whether Reeves is telling the truth about trying to contact Vick.
    You use a source to question someone’s honesty, but do not allow anyone to know the source’s vailidity. Maybe ESPN should do a series of reports on how you have a source that says Reeves lied and hammer you until they get the necessary information to find out if this is garbage. Lame.

    Yeah, in the UFL.

    frankly blacks commit all the interrcial crime. so, blacks are the real haters.
    why they hate everyone else… ask them.
    hate is continually trying to force lyin dopin birdflippin gamblin dogfightin mike vick on the rest of us.
    i think the nfl would do just fine if 12% of the US population stopped watching football (or attending games) if he wasnt allowed back in the nfl. in fact i bet more of the other 88% would start going to games and buying merch in that event.
    (cue… buy a home security system first… you may have company visit when you are out at the game…)
    vick is out of jail. that alone is his “2nd chance”.
    the “2nd chance” does not automatically mean he gets back in the nfl, gets back in at qb, or gets back in as a starting qb. players lose jobs to injury, inactivity, shitty attitude, incompatibility with a new offense or defense, all the time.
    you get busted… you get fired and lose yer job. and you dont get it back.
    no more judge ito / OJ style justice.
