Michael Vick makes Tom Coughlin sick

NFL_vick1

Giants coach Tom Coughlin watched the show Eagles quarterback Michael Vick put on Monday night against the Redskins, and then he couldn’t take it anymore.

I got indigestion and a stomach ache,” Couhglin said.

Coughlin’s Giants will play at Philadelphia on Sunday night, and the New York Post collected a series of quotes from the Giants, making it sound like the entire defense is in awe of Vick.

“I’ve never seen a quarterback do the things Vick can do, besides seeing Michael Vick,” Antrel Rolle said. “His pocket passing is more efficient, he has a bazooka for an arm and he runs faster than three quarters of the receivers in this league.”

“He’s unlike anything we’ve seen at the position,” Barry Cofield said.

“His speed, there’s nothing like it at the quarterback position,” Michael Boley said. “You can’t practice for that kind of speed. It’s almost impossible.”

Hearing his players talk about an opponent like they’re his biggest fans might make Coughlin sick, too.

    Well, I guess that’s good for him – it’s usually his own team that makes him sick.

  2. mean13 says: Nov 18, 2010 7:49 AM

    AND he has killed more dogs than any QB in NFL history.

  3. east96st says: Nov 18, 2010 7:53 AM

    Maybe, just maybe, since the Eagles went on all week about how Landry and McNabb fired them up with their words, NY is smart enough not to give them bulletin board material to use to pump themselves up during a short week. Sometimes I wonder whether or not PFT’s biggest troll and the one person who really should be censored is MDS. Enjoy the hits that this nothing post will generate as Eagles fans crawl out from under their rocks and declare, for the forty fifth year in a row, how “this is their year”, showing how after decades of failure they still don’t understand the one game that is truly meaningful is played in February.

    They’re laying it on pretty thick, hoping Vick reads it. I could easily see the Giants not only containing Vick, but putting A LOT of pressure on him. By the 4th qtr. we may be seeing Kolb, just to preserve MV’s health.

  5. galatians62 says: Nov 18, 2010 7:59 AM

    Michael Vick could have been bitter, or made excuses. He accepted responsibility, and has been humble and contrite. This is an incredible story of redemption. What’s the over/under on when he’ll throw an INT?

  6. Panda Claus says: Nov 18, 2010 7:59 AM

    So how do you think Shanahan must have felt after the game? Would the results have been the same as eating sushi left out at room temperature for two weeks?

    The Redskin coaches are going to go through about two cases of Pepto this week just from watching the game file of that Vick game.

  7. nopuntintended says: Nov 18, 2010 8:01 AM

    Lets be careful dubbing Mike the 2nd coming….here are the four defenses he’s actually beaten this year:

    Lions, Jags, Colts and Skins

    Not a single one of those teams has s.f.a. for defense, especially not run defense. No doubt he brings an extra quality to the game that lots don’t, but I think we need to temper our expectations until he’s beaten a “much better” team.

  8. bleedinggreensince82 says: Nov 18, 2010 8:05 AM

    Vick’s physical gifts were never in question–after all he went #1 overall in the draft and the Falcons even traded up to get him. The difference now is that he has his head on straight. Classic example of someone who needed to hit bottom to get his act together, but kudos to him for doing it–many never do. And even though I am a Giants fan, I have to credit the hated Eagles for taking a chance on him and for apparently doing a great job coaching him. That offense with Vick, Jackson, Maclin, McCoy, Celek, Avant is young and scary.

  13. steviethewiz says: Nov 18, 2010 8:49 AM

    Reading about what Vick did to all those dogs made me sick.

  14. hoobsher says: Nov 18, 2010 8:52 AM

    this just gets sweeter and sweeter. giants never got sick from mcnabb and theres a reason for it: vick is straight up, absolutely, 100% more talented in every facet of the quarterback position.

  15. benjaminbreeg11 says: Nov 18, 2010 9:03 AM

    Question is, if he stops performing at this high level, should he get the same treatment his underperforming dogs got?

    I think so.

    The calling card of a really sick mind (ie most serial killers) is tormenting and killing defenseless animals.

    Vick is a walking, talking piece of crap, no matter how well be plays. Serving time in jail does not change the person he is.

    Eat Sh#t and die, Vick.

  16. hardjudge says: Nov 18, 2010 9:04 AM

    mean13 You assume he has killed more dogs than any QB in the NFL. You do not know that for a fact. He has just been convicted of killing more dogs than any QB in the NFL. BTW since you appear to claim to be without sin remember “Pride goeth before a fall”!

    After watching the Cowboys put a hurt on the Giants, in New York, it looks like they will have to wait until next year for a “much better” team. Their schedule doesn’t look all that tough from here out.

  21. pigskin28 says: Nov 18, 2010 9:20 AM

    The giants could not stop Kitna/Bryant combination with their vaunted D and a porous Cowboy offensive line and allowed the non-existing Dallas run game to flourish…….You all think Kitna is a better passer than Vick? Or Bryant is faster or even a better route runner than Jackson?

    The Giants aren’t a D that pushes up the middle…they bring heat from the sides. bad recipe for dealing with Vick. If he continues to do it with his arm they’ll win easy. Besides with that performance on MNF the Eagles are more fired up than even the Cowboys were. The Eagle crowd will be unbelievable.

  22. stevemcguigan says: Nov 18, 2010 9:34 AM

    east96st:

    Your Giants got beaten, nay, thrashed by Jon Kitna and the 1-7 Dallas Cowboys. I think you’d better pump the breaks and wait until Monday morning to say anything.

  23. stanklepoot says: Nov 18, 2010 9:34 AM

    nopunintended,
    Besides Brady, how many QBs have faced a whole lot of top defenses and have a winning record? Oh, and you left one out…GB. He lit up their defense when he took over in the second half, but the team was simply down to far. Still, Vick made it close. I’d never act like any QB is the second coming (in fact, that’s why I can’t stand hearing about Manning anymore), but Vick is doing exceptionally well. Besides, the difference between a “good” defense and a “lesser” defense can be as little as 30 yards per game. You can only play the teams on your schedule. As of now, Vick’s passing accuracy is in the mid 60′s, his yards per reception is 2nd only to Rivers (meaning the accuracy isn’t due to a bunch of short dump off passes), he has 11 passing TDs, 4 or 5 rushing TDs, and he hasn’t turned the ball over. Over 4 and a half games, that’s impressive no matter who you’ve played. Besides, if you want to compare him to Peyton (they both played the Redskins, so same defense), Vick’s stats were higher in every passing category, Manning had a fumble, and Vick added an extra 80 rushing yards and 2 rushing TDs. So, second coming? No. Performing at an elite level? Yes.

  24. DonRSD says: Nov 18, 2010 9:35 AM

    if memory serves me correct, when vick was with the falcons we shut him down everytime.

    unlike most teams…..our DE’s are pretty fast.

    i can see JPP making a big impact this game with his speed as a de.

    GO BIG BLUE!!!

    7-3 sounds so much better than 6-4

    Vick will come back down to earth this weekend. The Giants will keep him in the pocket and let him beat himself.

  28. galatians62 says: Nov 18, 2010 9:39 AM

    @everybodygotaids – He now admits the he was wrong and his arrogance made him think that he could do anything and get away with it. He talks with candor about he past lifestyle, lack of work ethic, etc. He has been punished, he has repented, and God has forgiven him. The Apostile Paul as a Jewish leader used to muder Christians in the 1st century. God changed his heart and he ended up writing 2/3s of the new testament.

    Having overwhelming evidence against you doesn’t guarantee contrition. Ask Roger Clemons, Pete Rose, or Brett Farve. Those of you who can’t or won’t forgive Vick, please tell me what sins are unforgivable and which should be forgiven? Is cheating on your wife and publicly humiliating your family forgivable or unforgivable?

    You realize that if this is how you really feel, then you’re morally inferior to Vick, right? Vick killed dogs as a part of a gambling ring that he ran. You want to see a human being die or be killed. I love dogs, but human lives matter more. Legally wanting someone dead and killing them is completely different. Morally, however, they are quite similar…assuming it’s truly what you desire. So, while Vick tortured and killed dogs as part of a business venture, you want to see a human being killed for personal pleasure. You are far from morally superior here.

    I HIGHLY doubt that any of the Giants D-linemen will be napping in the middle of a play, giving Vick 7.74 seconds to scan the field. Don’t think MV will fair too well on his back, but you’re entitled to your dreams…

  34. polegojim says: Nov 18, 2010 10:01 AM

    Vick is a very good QB – let’s hope his return can make him consistent and maybe even great.

    Stop dogging the old news…and I am an animal lover, but has nothing to do with today.

  35. galatians62 says: Nov 18, 2010 10:03 AM

    And while we are on the subject, the hypocrisy of Vick Haters is laughable. Last summer my three year old niece was attacked by a pitbull terrier and spent three months in the hospital. I only know one person that has genuine affection for this animal. Most rational people think this breed should be outlawed. Google “pitbull attacks” and you will agree. This violent dog kills and injures children and domestic pets with alarming regularity. With Vick did was a crime, but we aren’t talking about poodles.

    Are all of these people really pitbull terrier advocates, or does something else motivate this hatred and unforgivness of Michael Vick?

    Now if someone truly loves pitbulls, doesn’t hunt or eat butchered meat, and hates Mike Vick…I can respect that. Everyone else is a hypocrit.

  36. favrecansuckit says: Nov 18, 2010 10:11 AM

    The key to containing Vick this year seems to be less about getting a traditional, man-in-the-backfield pass rush on and more about the front seven just holding their own and not letting the O-line create much for holes. That Vick’s gonna burn you for a few first-down runs to the sideline is a given, but those can be survived. Where he’s really killing teams is when he’s staring at the option of either a throw or taking a lane right in front of him on the ground.

It’s pretty sad that you don’t get it, but not the least bit surprising. You Philly boys are always running your mouths in November and nowhere to be found in February. Honestly, I don’t think either team, Philly or NY, will beat either Green Bay or New Orleans in the playoffs. So, as is the Eagle way, enjoy your brief moment. It will all come crashing down in the New Year – like it always does. And next year, you’ll be back, talking more crap and saying how “this is the year” yet again. It would be amusing if it wasn’t so damn predictable.

    Michael Vick makes Tom Coughlin sick
    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 18, 2010, 7:40 AM EST
    Giants coach Tom Coughlin watched the show Eagles quarterback Michael Vick put on Monday night against the Redskins, and then he couldn’t take it anymore.

    “I got indigestion and a stomach ache,” Couhglin said.

    Coughlin’s Giants will play at Philadelphia on Sunday night, and the New York Post collected a series of quotes from the Giants, making it sound like the entire defense is in awe of Vick.

    “I’ve never seen a quarterback do the things Vick can do, besides seeing Michael Vick,” Antrel Rolle said. “His pocket passing is more efficient, he has a bazooka for an arm and he runs faster than three quarters of the receivers in this league.”

    “He’s unlike anything we’ve seen at the position,” Barry Cofield said.

    “His speed, there’s nothing like it at the quarterback position,” Michael Boley said. “You can’t practice for that kind of speed. It’s almost impossible.”

    Hearing his players talk about an opponent like they’re his biggest fans might make Coughlin sick, too.

    Lets be careful dubbing Mike the 2nd coming….here are the four defenses he’s actually beaten this year:

    Lions, Jags, Colts and Skins

    Not a single one of those teams has s.f.a. for defense, especially not run defense. No doubt he brings an extra quality to the game that lots don’t, but I think we need to temper our expectations until he’s beaten a “much better” team.

    well you saw how he played when the Eagles were fired up after the Redskin comments, the Giants are just buttering him up.

    They’re laying it on pretty thick, hoping Vick reads it. I could easily see the Giants not only containing Vick, but putting A LOT of pressure on him. By the 4th qtr. we may be seeing Kolb, just to preserve MV’s health.

    Vick’s physical gifts were never in question–after all he went #1 overall in the draft and the Falcons even traded up to get him. The difference now is that he has his head on straight. Classic example of someone who needed to hit bottom to get his act together, but kudos to him for doing it–many never do. And even though I am a Giants fan, I have to credit the hated Eagles for taking a chance on him and for apparently doing a great job coaching him. That offense with Vick, Jackson, Maclin, McCoy, Celek, Avant is young and scary.

    this just gets sweeter and sweeter. giants never got sick from mcnabb and theres a reason for it: vick is straight up, absolutely, 100% more talented in every facet of the quarterback position.

    Question is, if he stops performing at this high level, should he get the same treatment his underperforming dogs got?

    I think so.

    The calling card of a really sick mind (ie most serial killers) is tormenting and killing defenseless animals.

    Vick is a walking, talking piece of crap, no matter how well be plays. Serving time in jail does not change the person he is.

    Eat Sh#t and die, Vick.

    mean13 You assume he has killed more dogs than any QB in the NFL. You do not know that for a fact. He has just been convicted of killing more dogs than any QB in the NFL. BTW since you appear to claim to be without sin remember “Pride goeth before a fall”!

    Michael Vick could have been bitter, or made excuses. He accepted responsibility, and has been humble and contrite. This is an incredible story of redemption.
    _________________

    Didn’t he go on about how it wasn’t his fault, he wasn’t involved, he had no knowledge, blah blah blah when the allegations first came up? Didn’t he lie to Goodell’s face when asked about the accusations? It doesn’t count as accepting responsibility when there’s already an overwhelming amount of evidence and you have no choice but to admit what everyone already knows is true.

    After watching the Cowboys put a hurt on the Giants, in New York, it looks like they will have to wait until next year for a “much better” team. Their schedule doesn’t look all that tough from here out.

    The giants could not stop Kitna/Bryant combination with their vaunted D and a porous Cowboy offensive line and allowed the non-existing Dallas run game to flourish…….You all think Kitna is a better passer than Vick? Or Bryant is faster or even a better route runner than Jackson?

    The Giants aren’t a D that pushes up the middle…they bring heat from the sides. bad recipe for dealing with Vick. If he continues to do it with his arm they’ll win easy. Besides with that performance on MNF the Eagles are more fired up than even the Cowboys were. The Eagle crowd will be unbelievable.

    nopunintended,
    Besides Brady, how many QBs have faced a whole lot of top defenses and have a winning record? Oh, and you left one out…GB. He lit up their defense when he took over in the second half, but the team was simply down to far. Still, Vick made it close. I’d never act like any QB is the second coming (in fact, that’s why I can’t stand hearing about Manning anymore), but Vick is doing exceptionally well. Besides, the difference between a “good” defense and a “lesser” defense can be as little as 30 yards per game. You can only play the teams on your schedule. As of now, Vick’s passing accuracy is in the mid 60′s, his yards per reception is 2nd only to Rivers (meaning the accuracy isn’t due to a bunch of short dump off passes), he has 11 passing TDs, 4 or 5 rushing TDs, and he hasn’t turned the ball over. Over 4 and a half games, that’s impressive no matter who you’ve played. Besides, if you want to compare him to Peyton (they both played the Redskins, so same defense), Vick’s stats were higher in every passing category, Manning had a fumble, and Vick added an extra 80 rushing yards and 2 rushing TDs. So, second coming? No. Performing at an elite level? Yes.

    if memory serves me correct, when vick was with the falcons we shut him down everytime.

    unlike most teams…..our DE’s are pretty fast.

    i can see JPP making a big impact this game with his speed as a de.

    GO BIG BLUE!!!

    7-3 sounds so much better than 6-4

    @everybodygotaids – He now admits the he was wrong and his arrogance made him think that he could do anything and get away with it. He talks with candor about he past lifestyle, lack of work ethic, etc. He has been punished, he has repented, and God has forgiven him. The Apostile Paul as a Jewish leader used to muder Christians in the 1st century. God changed his heart and he ended up writing 2/3s of the new testament.

    Having overwhelming evidence against you doesn’t guarantee contrition. Ask Roger Clemons, Pete Rose, or Brett Farve. Those of you who can’t or won’t forgive Vick, please tell me what sins are unforgivable and which should be forgiven? Is cheating on your wife and publicly humiliating your family forgivable or unforgivable?

    You realize that if this is how you really feel, then you’re morally inferior to Vick, right? Vick killed dogs as a part of a gambling ring that he ran. You want to see a human being die or be killed. I love dogs, but human lives matter more. Legally wanting someone dead and killing them is completely different. Morally, however, they are quite similar…assuming it’s truly what you desire. So, while Vick tortured and killed dogs as part of a business venture, you want to see a human being killed for personal pleasure. You are far from morally superior here.

    “You are obviously in denial. Good luck with that.”

    I HIGHLY doubt that any of the Giants D-linemen will be napping in the middle of a play, giving Vick 7.74 seconds to scan the field. Don’t think MV will fair too well on his back, but you’re entitled to your dreams…

    And while we are on the subject, the hypocrisy of Vick Haters is laughable. Last summer my three year old niece was attacked by a pitbull terrier and spent three months in the hospital. I only know one person that has genuine affection for this animal. Most rational people think this breed should be outlawed. Google “pitbull attacks” and you will agree. This violent dog kills and injures children and domestic pets with alarming regularity. With Vick did was a crime, but we aren’t talking about poodles.

    Are all of these people really pitbull terrier advocates, or does something else motivate this hatred and unforgivness of Michael Vick?

    Now if someone truly loves pitbulls, doesn’t hunt or eat butchered meat, and hates Mike Vick…I can respect that. Everyone else is a hypocrit.

    That’s a garbage argument. How about “Don’t torture and inflict suffering on things for your own amusement”? Is that too “out there” for you? Now I’m not a fan of hunting. There’s no “sport” involved in shooting a deer from a hundred yards away with a high powered rifle. That’s absolute garbage. That being said, with hunting, you aren’t trying to inflict pain for the sake of inflicting pain. The dogfighting is awful, yes, but it’s the torture of the losers. It’s the stealing of people’s pets to feed to the dogs to give them bloodlust. If you have a pet, can you imagine Michael Vick and his “homies” out cruising around, they see your dog out in your yard, hop out, grab it, take it with them back to their ring, and throw it in a pen with a dog they’re training to kill? Imagine your pet sitting there terrified, shaking, while they laugh and cheer it on as the other dog comes out to rip your dog to shreds. All because Michael Vick wanted a better show on the weekend. All because the dogs weren’t violent ENOUGH that he had to make the “sport” more greusome. There’s absolutely no way you can defend what he did. If he had taken one of my pets, he wouldn’t have had to worry about prison because he’d already be dead.
