Long time readers know that my big problem with Donovan McNubbins was that he was a “no heart chump.” What do I mean by that? It is complicated, but to be concise, I’d say that “no heart chump” means someone who is ambivalent about winning. In a league like the NFL where everyone is very good, heart is the X-factor. You have to really, really, really, want to win. When calls don’t go your way, you have to use that injustice and bounce off it. When you are a no heart chump losing does not haunt your dreams it is a part of life. Sure you’d rather win, but after all it is a team sport… yaga yada yada.
And guess what? There is nobody in the NFL who wants to win more than Michael Vick. So the Falcons are going to have a long prime time evening.

Aside: Beautiful TD pass by Drew Breas just then.
