DOGPILE! Vick While Robert Byrd has already given Michael Vick his assurances that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who fight dogs, Radar has learned from one NFL star that Vick has a more immediate concern—facing the wrath of the NFL's dog-loving players if he ever takes the field again, some of whom may be the very people assigned to protect Vick on the field.

Trying to kill the opposing quarterback is nothing new in the NFL, but the player believes the attacks on Vick will be especially brutal and dirty, and may even be aided by the Falcons offensive line, who, according to the source, have indicated that they will make sure the opposition has all the room and time that they need to land a hit that will send the quarterback into early retirement.
