The legend of MICHAEL VICK began Dec. 30, 2001, in a game against the Miami Dolphins. The stat line wasn't that impressive -- 214 yards passing, 63 rushing, and three turnovers -- and his team lost. But after the game, the Dolphins could talk only about him. He escaped blitz after blitz and made the kind of flat-footed 60-yard passes to which Falcons have grown accustomed. The promise Vick showed that day matured into playoff payoff in January when he and the Falcons handed the Packers their first-ever post-season loss at Lambeau Field. To get an idea of how good this guy is, the New Orleans Saints upgraded their defensive speed this season just to combat Vick. With those feet, that arm and those moves, he's just sick. But after breaking a bone in his right leg during a pre-season game, the question is, how soon before he regains that magical form?
