A Vick study
By Dan Shanoff
Page 2 columnist

After offseason sessions with Steve Young on how to be a better left-handed QB, Atlanta Falcons sensation Michael Vick spent last week with Atlanta Braves hitting coach Terry Pendleton getting lessons on sliding techniques, which Vick showed off Sunday in the Falcons' 30-0 trouncing of the Panthers.

Page 2 applauds Vick's open mind about self-improvement, and suggests he get in contact with any of the following tutors to help him continue to fulfill his potential:
