On Riley Cooper

Can ESPN’s Mike & Mike Show‘s gushing praise this morning for Michael Vick’s “remarkable maturity” for his “can we all get along & get past this” statements regarding Riley Cooper’s use of the N-word be taken as anything other than patronizing? Were they expecting every black player on the Eagles to start a race riot over this, or join the New Black Panthers and start packing heat to the Novacare Complex in case he says it again so they can lock and load? “Remarkable maturity” is the new “articulate.”

Also, is it cynical to note that Vick’s re-emergence as unifying clubhouse leader coincides with the fact that the Eagles’ starting QB job is officially up for grabs?
