The ball is officially rolling in the Michael Vick case: Tony Taylor, or "T" in the now-famous indictment, has plead guilty in exchange for testifying against Mr. Mexico.

Tony Taylor, 34, of Hampton, Virginia, appeared in Richmond's federal court to change his plea under the plea bargain. He will be sentenced December 14.

The indictment says Taylor discovered the site that became the Bad Newz Kennels — the staging area for housing and training the pit bulls and hosting dog fights. Prosecutors also accuse Taylor of helping to buy pit bulldogs and puppies, and of executing at least two dogs "who did not perform well in 'testing' sessions ... by shooting one dog and electrocuting the other."

In other words, they're not going to be letting up on this Vick business. But you knew that. Also, over the weekend, Upper Deck announced it wouldn't be making a Vick card for this season. We understand sponsors dropping Vick, but sheesh, doesn't everybody get a football card? If just so we can read the fascinating "personal facts" on the back.

(UPDATE; The Smoking Gun has the "statement of facts" from Taylor, and, all told ... it could be worse for Vick.)
