FOXBOROUGH — There is a reasonable chance that Michael Vick will be the best quarterback the Patriots face until old pal Peyton Manning, the new savior signal-caller in Denver (Tim who?), ventures to Foxborough the day before Columbus Day, Oct. 7. They didn’t see him for very long.
Vick left Monday night’s exhibition game at Gillette Stadium with a rib injury after taking six snaps. This game was such a fraud — 27 Patriots sat out, including Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Jerod Mayo, and Vince Wilfork — that it should have been played at Fenway Park and declared a sellout.
