Mike Vick, Or, The St. Louis Rams Seek To Ruin Your Fantasy Team, Vick Guy

With Peyton Manning out for most of the season and never a particularly exciting pick to begin with—he was too metronomically brilliant to surprise—Michael Vick is the official fantasy football pick of iconoclasts and dogfighters everywhere. Most of those teams, because of their early selection of Vick, are built around him throwing for 300 yards and running for 150 more, and every game, if possible, and he should never be hurt, too, please. This is also the Philadelphia Eagles' offense, now that Kevin Kolb is gone. That means the St. Louis Rams' job Sunday is—and I'm not really exaggerating—to ruin your fantasy football team, Mike Vick Guy.

Don't worry, it's nothing personal. Well, it's probably personal with Mike Vick, seeing as he killed a bunch of dogs, but not with you—I bet Sam Bradford probably picks a quarterback in the first round, too, and I'm not sure how well-developed Chris Long's sense of irony is but he ought to consider it, so that the other people in his draft kind of chuckle when he does it.

But if the Rams are going to win on Sunday, you have to lose. I'm sorry.
