Vick only played 3 plays in the Falcons Preseason opener, he was removed from the play after he was buried on a sack from a linebacker.

If DT barries him like he did McCown (to close to clown to be taken seriously :clown: ) on the 1st play will fragile Vick be on the sidelines watching :?:

I'm more interested in seeing DeAngelo Hall. He looked good vs. the Ravens

I heard Vick and the entire first string plays entire first half. ALso, Vikings will counter with their first string. I heard it on PA & Dubois. I thought they did not do this until the last preseason game?

From a fantasy football newsletter I get:

Falcons' head coach Jim Mora said Monday that quarterback Michael Vick will play more in the preseason game against the Vikings on Friday than he did in the first game against the Ravens. "It's a fine line," Mora told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution of Vick's playing time. "I think you need to get some (exhibition) games, but I also want a healthy Mike Vick in December, into January. If that means he doesn't jump off to a great start (in the regular season), as long as he's building through the season, and we can win, it'll be okay." Vick took only three snaps against the Ravens.

It sounds like they're still very paranoid about injuries, so I doubt we'll see Vick for a full half. Maybe He'll play the full first quarter, but not a half.

I don't think it's probably predetermined how long Vick will play. I think it's based on how many hits/sacks he takes. I think if we're getting to him on a consistent basis then he will be pulled rather quickly. If he's staying in the pocket and getting passes off while being untouched, then I think he may play longer. For the sake of our young defense getting to practice against one of the most difficult QB's to contain, I would like to see him play at least a full quarter if not longer.
