Here’s Mike Vick Pointing at the Scoreboard, Obviously Ignoring the Clock

Sep 19, 2011, 10:45 AM EDT

As Mike Vick walked off the field after sustaining a blood-spitting concussion, some of his former fans in Atlanta were apparently giving it to him pretty good. With the Birds up 31-21 at the time, Vick made the mistake of responding to them by pointing at the scoreboard. The first mistake, of course, was responding at all. The second was that the scoreboard showed a game that was still very much in reach for a team as talented as the Falcons with more than an entire quarter left on the clock.

We all know what happened after that. Vick’s night was over, and though his backup played well, the Atlanta fans were the ones who got to leave the stadium pointing at the scoreboard.

It’s obviously not the first time Vick has raised fingers in the direction of the Atlanta crowd. At least this time he was a visitor.
