Tim McManus of Phillysportsdaily reports former Falcons coach Dan Reeves, who drafted Michael Vick with the top overall pick in 2001, went back in time and talked about how disappointed he was upon hearing of his quarterback’s transgressions. He was one of many that had invested something valuable in Vick and got burned. Yet he still remained loyal to him, and believes the organization should have as well.
“When Mike really needed them they turned their back on him in my opinion,” said Reeves. “They could have been a big supporter and they let him go. I think it could have been handled differently.
“I wasn’t there so I don’t know the organization’s standpoint, but I thought they could have been more supportive and instead they severed ties with him.
