Like most in the civilized world, the Atlanta Falcons would most likely want to put the Mike Vick dog fighting incident behind them. I expect a uniform redesign coming in 2008, much in the same way that the Pacers redesigned their jerseys after the Palace brawl.

I bet no one in the organization wears the number 7 ever again (Vick included)

I might be wrong here but I don't think the Pacers decided to make changes based on the brawl. These changes are worked on for quite some time and must be submitted to the League far in advance.

If the Falcons do change it wouldn't be until the '09 season IF like you say, they decide to make a change based on the Vick situation.

Amazing... I can see 3 Prince Senator posts right before my eyes (all the same) and yet his post total is 2.

Anyway, there might be something to this idea. Wasn't part of the change to usher in the "Vick" era? (His first year was in the last version of the Glanvilles.) And wasn't it Vick who influenced the switch back to red?

They would be wise to change a branding most associated with Vick, and they have a perfectly good one they could revert to.

I'm sure Arthur Blank would like to think his new logo and unis are associated with his reign as owner, but the reality is they're with Vick. Of course, unlike the Pacers example, Vick's acts didn't occur in uniform on national TV.

What is/was the deadline for 2008?

And that has to be the first ever case of a double post, with someone elses posts in the middle of the DP, TWICE, by two different members.

And the Falcons would be stupid to change their unis because some Yahoo QB got caught with his hand in the Cookie jar. And I wouldn't be suprised if they assign #7 to some third string kicker or something right after Vick gets cut.

I doubt they'd switch up the uni considering they just revamped them in 2003. One thing I'd be interested in seeing is if they switch back to the black uni as their home - I believe it was Vick who helped push the red uni as the official home uni after the '04 season.

I agree with Bucfan. In the immortal words of Goodie Mob, "One monkey don't stop no show." Just because Vick was wearing this design while he got involved with seedy dogfighting, that shouldn't be grounds to change uniforms. That would be like saying that the Mets should've changed their unis back when Dwight Gooden was doing his dirt.

If anything, I'd like to see them use the black jersey-white pants combo. That always looked the best to me.

I really like the red jersey with the black pants. I don't know if they actually use it, but I think it's an option in Madden.... Anyway, I don't see them doing a re-design so soon, even if they might want to, since this is definitely the look everyone associates with Mr. Vick. I guess I could see them doing something small like switching back to black jerseys, though there's really no need for three-quarters of Atlanta's division to wear the same color home jersey.

How many years was Vick in the old uniforms? Just two, right? I remember seeing the new Falcons jersey at Champs Sports and thinking that they redesigned just for him. There might be a bit more coincidence than that, but given the two-year notification requirement, it seemed like that thought made sense.

And no, I don't think they should change the uniforms. That sets a pretty silly precedent. It's far better to learn from past tragedies then to try to act like they never existed.

The pistons didn't change their uniforms after the palace brawl. :D

Maybe they won't change because of Vick... maybe they'll change because it looks like crap.

Word.

Time to change back to this:

Except replace the gray facemask with white.

There.

Fixed it.

Easy, easy now ... if Arizona State University had to change uniforms everytime one of their players got arrested, you know what you'd have? ANARCHY! You want anarchy? You're crazy, man!
