Some people think Michael Vick will play again in the NFL. That it’s “silly” to think he won’t.
Ha. Who’s being silly? He’ll never play in the NFL again. I mean, the Falcons were getting fed up with him. His on field accomplishments were limited. His off field behavior sucked. He shot the bird to the fans on television. He lied to the commissioner and the Falcons.
He’ s not much of a quarterback. Basically, the only thing he does well is run from the quarterback position. You’ll never win with that. The Falcons are basically a .500 team with Vick, and it’s on a downhill course. WTF?
He doesn’t have another position, and don’t tell me he could be a running back or a punt returner or a wide receiver. He’s never played those positions, and they do have necessary skill sets and physical demands.
He is going to prison, where he will hang out with a bunch of bad dudes with bad habits.
He isn’t very nice.
He’s already been in the NFL longer than the average career.
He’ll be rusty.
He won’t be very popular.
Gambling, drugs, dogfighting, cruelty, arrogance, stupidity, no position, felon, ex inmate, 29 years old…
and he’ll be on probation in some sense, from a legal standpoint. He may face state charges for killing dogs.
If you sign Vick, you have to pay the veteran minimum, which is substantial money. You have to cut somebody to keep Vick. There are 50 other players on the roster, and probably not many of them are pals of Michael Vick; Vick doesn’t have any friends.
Even Al Davis wouldn’t touch this guy. Seriously. Name a franchise that would?
I would even be surprised if he doesn’t get AT LEAST a three year suspension, because of the gambling, that would mean he’s thirty before he could even be available.
