Matt Cassel's Burden Is Heavier Than Anyone Imagined

What we watched: Another day, another item about Michael Vick for everyone to throw to the dogs. Get ready to hear plenty this weekend about what Vick had to say to Yahoo's Michael Silver.

"You can't design a defense to stop me" is just perfect for the coming holiday weekend, since it's certain to generate a shitstorm of references to all of those teams that have done just that against Vick in the playoffs through the years. The only wonder is whether Vick will feel the need to issue a statement later that tries to get everyone to calm down because he never really said what he said.
