Michael Vick Now Gone From Madden 08
Posted Sep 8th 2007 6:57AM by Michael David Smith
Filed under: Falcons, Atlanta, The Word

As the Atlanta Falcons' quarterback, Michael Vick was perhaps the best player in the EA Sports Madden video game. He had great speed and great arm strength, and although the real Vick often made poor decisions when reading defenses, in a video game his decisions are as good as the player's.

But Vick isn't in the Madden video game anymore. EA Sports removed him from the Madden 08 roster update, which makes sense, as EA Sports prides itself on having the exclusive rights to real NFL rosters, and Vick is not on an NFL roster.

On the other hand, if you're a Madden player, the game just lost some of its fun. Three of the past four Madden Challenge National Champions have used the Falcons because, even though the Falcons aren't the best team overall, a skilled Madden player can use Vick's talents in a way that exceeds those of any other player.

Because of his skills as a run/pass threat, Titans quarterback Vince Young may now become the game's most popular player, in addition to its cover boy.

it'd be fucking awesome if he was running the ball down the field and a pack of dogs attack him and tear him to pieces near the endzone.

Just do a create a player...or maybe create a team called "Dogslayers" and have him play every position. Use Ray Lewis for Defense, he's a felon too.

It would have been funnier if he was the marquee player in their ad campaign, with his stupid face on the box or something.

I've been wondering if they were going to do this. Glad to see it happened. Probably a lot less Falcon bitches online now.

Most people thought Vick was unbalanced in Madden anyway. Probably for the best.

I dunno, but I still have Madden '05... I'll hope for the best in a couple years. Maybe in 15 years he'll end up killing someone, then the game will be worth some money.
