This Michael Vick business has got me so upset that I can’t even watch “Dogfights” on the History Channel anymore.

Three things Vick’s attorney should avoid saying at all costs:

1. “My client has been hounded by these accusations.”

2. “The prosecution is barking up the wrong tree.”

3. “The D.A. threw the witness a bone by letting him plea to a lesser charge.”

So I’m looking at Mike Strahan’s smiling visage — and the Lombardi-like space between his front teeth — and I’m thinking: Maybe he’s retiring from the Giants because they’re switching to a two-gap defense.

The Redskins’ Todd Wade, who’s moving to left guard this season after spending his entire career at tackle, figures it’ll be easy to evaluate his performance. “If I do well,” he says, “Chris [Samuels] will go back to the Pro Bowl.”

Has anyone ever pointed out that Wade, at 6-8, might very well be the tallest Redskin in history? Heck, even John “Tree” Adams, a tackle in the late ‘40s, was only 6-7.

A guy as altitudinous as Wade needs a nickname (if not a weather vane). How about “Towering Todd” or “The Skins’ Skyscraper”?
