Wayne Bennett, in an entry at his Field Negro blog, congratulates Herman Cain on his Florida straw poll win but, like most people, says it's unlikely that he will win the GOP nomination. Bennett then veers wildly over the football field to check in on Mike Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles, who injured his hand during Sunday's game.

Calm down Herman, let's not lose perspective here. It was a nice win, but you and I have about the same shot at winning the republican primary to run against his O ness in November of 2012.

Finally, I am glad to see that Michael Vick is speaking up for himself. The hits long after he releases the football is really getting old.  Mike is wondering why he doesn't get the same protection from the refs like other quarterbacks such as Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

"I was trying to protect myself," Vick said in his postgame news conference. "Still didn't get a flag and that's pretty much been the story for the last three weeks. I mean, obviously at some point something catastrophic is going to happen and I broke my hand."
