What Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick did Sunday couldn't be switched off as if it were a video game. He couldn't do a retake as if it were one of those high-tech television commercials he has starred in over the years.

Although Vick has been in the spotlight since his sophomore season at Virginia Tech, when he led the Hokies to the national championship game, the scrutiny has never been more intense than it is this week after his obscene gesture in the aftermath of Atlanta's 31-13 home loss to the New Orleans Saints.
