Falcons rally around Vick after elder Mora calls QB a 'coach killer'

The Atlanta Falcons closed ranks around embattled quarterback Michael Vick, who was clearly stunned by reports that Jim Mora’s father referred to No. 7 as a “coach killer.”

Vick said Wednesday that he shut off his cell phone because he was getting so many calls about comments made by Mora’s father, a former NFL coach who shares the same name with his son.

“Honestly, I don’t even know what to say,” Vick said. “I think it was inappropriate. But, hey, when you’re commentating, I guess you’ve got a right to say what you want to say. I just keep playing football. At the same time, it’s crazy.”

Earlier this week, during his show on Fox Sports Radio, the elder Mora agreed with the co-host’s description of Vick as a “coach killer.”

“It worries me a little bit because my son is the head coach down there,” Mora added. “But he’s a great athlete, my son likes him a lot, he’s a good kid. But he’s not a passer. And you need a passer at quarterback to be successful consistently in the National Football League. And he ain’t getting it done in that category.”

The younger Mora said he’s spoken with his father about the statement — “he regrets it” — and went to great lengths to show that he’s still got faith in his quarterback, despite a three-game losing streak that has severely hurt the Falcons’ playoff hopes.

I think hes right but undermining what your son is doing with his team is really thoughtless. Vick whether hes worth it or not is the face of that franchise and if it comes down to him or Mora, Id say Mora is a goner.

I think Vick will be gone soon from Atlanta. The fans there are fed up with his inconsistent play. If not next year the year after that

Sr. is correct. It's not the first time Vick has heard. I don't know why he's surprised. Maybe if ENOUGH people say it, HE will start realizing it IS true.

Uhhh....no. They LOVE Vick down there. I was just down there a week and a half ago. I was actually surprised by the support. He probably has the biggest fanbase of any one player in his hometown in the league. If he's gone it won't be because of the fans.

the only place where Vick isn't overrated is on Madden, where his speed is so ridiculous you can run every play

funny thing--Vicks on pace for 1,000 rushing yards this season, as a QB.
