Donovan McNabb: I'm a Mike Vick Supporter Posted Aug 2nd 2007 2:56PM by Michael David Smith Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has come forward to say he's still supporting Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, who's indefinitely suspended from the NFL and facing a federal indictment. "I'm a supporter of Vick," McNabb said Tuesday at Lehigh University. "That's because I'm a good friend of his and also we're guys that obviously compete to win the Super Bowl. We push each other. Now, I don't know exactly what happened in that situation, and I think for all of us that have read over the stuff that was over the Internet, the report, you look at it as kind of like, 'Wow, you've got your so-called friends and family members turning their back on you now to make their situation better.' They're throwing you under the bus so that they can clean their name. That's unfortunate. That goes to show, I always have a saying that I've always lived by: If you can't trust family, who can you trust? It's an unfortunate situation, and I just hope everything works out well for him where he can get back out on the field." Presumably McNabb is referring to Vick's former friend Tony Taylor and cousin Davon Boddie when he suggests that Vick's friends and family members are turning their back on him to clean their names. But his opinion doesn't make much sense. Taylor isn't clearing his own name; he's confessing to a crime and agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors. So far, despite the strong case prosecutors seem to have against Vick, the closest any NFL player has come to saying that Vick himself is responsible for the situation he's in is Deion Sanders, who said Vick has a passion for dog fighting. Sanders was subsequently muzzled. i really wanted to title this thread "i'm black and stupid; so i'ma gonna support someone else who's black and stupid", but fewer ppl might check it out then[funny] and bwahahahahaha@the deion/muzzle line[funny] priceless.
