The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said during a press conference that he was "very disappointed" in QB Michael Vick. Blank also said he was initially in favor of a four-game suspension, but said the leave of absence was the best option. When asked if he ever directly asked Vick if he was involved in illegal dog fighting, Blank said he had not. General manager Rich McKay said releasing Vick was an option discussed, but they agreed with the league's ruling. Head coach Bobby Petrino said there is a possibility that the team will have to prepare for a season without Michael Vick.

Chris Pika, of AtlantaFalcons.com, reports the NFL's Competition Committee will propose penalizing players who spike or throw the ball after plays on the field. Touchdowns will not be subject to the proposed five-yard penalty. " This is an issue that has really shown itself in the last two years where it seems like every play -- whether a three-yard gain or a 15-yarder -- results in a player stepping up and spiking the ball," Atlanta Falcons general manager and committee co-chairman Rich McKay said. If a player spiked the ball after gaining a first down, the ball would be moved back five yards but it will still be first-and-10.

Under the new system, teams will list the amount of practice in which injured players participate on Wednesday and Thursday of a game week.

Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Falcons new head coach Bobby Petrino addressed the recent incident involving QB Michael Vick, who was cleared of any wrongdoing after attempting to pass through Miami International Airport security with an unknown particulate in a hidden compartment of a water bottle. "I told him I didn't think our first meeting would be under these circumstances, but it was good to get to know him a little bit," Petrino said regarding the face-to-face meeting he and team president/general manager Rich McKay had with Vick last week. "He told me what happened and how it happened, and from that point we decided we're going to get past that. It's unfortunate but we're going to put that behind us and it's hopefully football from here on. I'm really looking forward to moving on."

Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports former Atlanta Falcons OT Bob Whitfield, now with the New York Giants, is still upset in the manner in which he was released from the team in 2003. In an expletive-laced interview with the New York Daily News, Whitfield said he would like to be in a room with Falcons president and general manager Rich McKay so he could "really tell him how I think of his [stuff]. That is what you need to write." Whitfield added, "I don't talk to punks. I'm not disgruntled. He has to do his job. I've got to do mine. Just from a man-to-man perspective, he could have told me, dog." Whitfield claims McKay led him to believe he'd be part of the team in 2004, but Whitfield heard through the media that his job security was uncertain. He was then but before the regular season started, which helped lead to his grudge.
