Ozzie wanted Vick

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Ravens G.M. Ozzie Newsome wanted to pursue quarterback Mike Vick.

Per Mort, Newsome, coach John Harbaugh, and owner Steve Bisciotti couldn’t get on the same page.

As we reported earlier tonight, one other team had made Vick an offer, and another team was poised to do so.

    Wow the Ravens huh? That would have sucked for Troy Smith. I always thought that the Ravens wouldnt be interested because they have someone like Smith and although granted he isnt as explosive as Vick, he could have done enough to get something like the WildCat going.

    whoops, I meant Ravens, Cowboys, Eagles – NOT Browns, Cowboys, Eagles.

    So we know Ozzie wanted him. If “they couldn’t get on the same page”, I assume that means either Harbaugh or Bisciotti (or both of them) didn’t want him. It would be nice to know where each of them stood. Given Ozzie’s track record, I’d assume his opinion has a good deal of weight.

    Baldy just said that McNabb is gonna be real pissed about this.
    He basically said that McNabb’s vaginal was bruised when the Eagles drafted a QB in round 2 and now this.
    I think he’ll need a full hysterectomy now.

    The “experts” claim this is a good fit for Vick the Beagle killer, that Andy Reid is just the type of coach that Vick needs to get his act back together……..hmmmm last time i checked, Andy’s two sons were doin’ hard time themselves, so much for being a role model, father figure, leader. What a SPIN!! Can’t wait for “bring your kid to work day”, andy’s felon sons and vick, wouldn’t that be a probation violation, associating with other felons!!!!

    Maybe the Eagles will try to trade Vick for Ray Lewis… or not.

    Going to keep piping it in:
    If you think you’re on moral high ground because you’re walking away because Mike Vick is playing football, you’re delusional. The fact is that a rapist, Jerramy Stevens, is still in the league, but it takes a dog killer for you to walk away says a lot about you. You’re telling me that someone who killed dogs is worse than someone who raped women? Are you serious. Please don’t hit anyone with that highfalutin nonsense about an organization having no moral fibre when Jerramy Stevens is in the league and you were still fans while he played. Good riddens. We’ll see how long that not watching the NFL thing lasts. So does that also mean you’re going to quit your job if your company remains a sponsor of the Eagles as well or are affiliated with sponsors of the Eagles in any way? Or are your morals only so strong? Child please.

    So you’re saying that Ozzie is a scumbag too? I mean, I sort of a had a feeling that he had no backbone when the Browns up and left for Baltimore and he stuck with Art Modell. If the shoe fits…

    kidick you are hollow.
    you arent a stevens critic. yer just another vick fan trying to act morally superior.

    Keep on it, Kidekk. The hypocricy on this board reeks.

    Thank God the Ravens did not get him!!

    Man I bet they can’t wait until Donte Stallworth is reinstated.

    She asked for it. Seriously, get details.
    Let the games begin. Check out this Michael Vick site.

    So Vick, the convicted gambling ring operator, signs with the team closest to Delaware just as Delaware begins to offer betting on games!
    What were the odds of that?

    Because nobody in your family has EVER done anything illegal…It’s really funny to see that you dislike Mike Vick so much, that you attack Andy Reid’s family…your a REAL class act…

    BOY, DOES IT!

    @ Kidekk
    Hey man dont sweat em. Your the only one on this board that makes sense. Its not that the others are bad people, if they really thought about it they would realize that hitting women or (of course) rapeing someone is worse than killing dogs. They are just sheep, following whatever the popular sentiment is. Fact is, in this society, dogs are more respected than women. Sad but seemingly true. You cant count how many women beaters are in the NFL. There is more outrage about DUI’s than hitting women. I’m just gonna keep lovin’ and respectin’ women, while i swim in booty, while these losers sit home with their dogs.

    ——-
    Ozz leaving cLeaveland with Art showed “lack of backbone?” More like an overabundance of properly functioning brain cells – something you’ll never have to deal with.

    Vick is the perfect fit for the city of Baltimore LOL!

    This is a CYA report by Mort. I like how he was AT Eagles camp and the scoop he picked up was that Vick was to Ravens.
    Mort is terrible.

    empty13 said-kidick you are hollow.

    Have you SEEN Jerramy Stevens’ rap sheet? It’s 3 freakin pages long and includes 2nd and 4th degree assault(pleaded out to misdemeanor assault), reckless driving, marijuana, sexual assault(which resulted in a civil settlement), DUI, DWI, and Hit and Run. The guy is, IMO, a MUCH SCUZZIER human being than Vick because his crimes were against humans, not dogs.
    Don’t get me wrong, I think what Vick did was horrifying but, lets keep some perspective. If Jerramy Stevens deserves continued second chances than Mike Vick deserves at least one.

    “The guy is, IMO, a MUCH SCUZZIER human being than Vick because his crimes were against humans, not dogs.”
    What’s your opinion on Vick knowingly inflicting a woman with herpes? Rape is bad. Very bad. Herpes is for life.

    Not a surprise from a franchise that throws boatloads of $$$ at FELONS like the Lewis’

  24. famucancer says: Aug 14, 2009 1:34 PM

    VoxVeritas you sound crazy. I’m sure a lot of rape victims would tell you that’s for life too.

  25. tleg81 says: Aug 15, 2009 12:49 AM

    So, for the sake of the arguement My take on the Dog murderer is this.
    He did his time yes, he deserves a second chance yes, he should do what he is good at yes, he should have a chance to redeem himself in the community yes….
    However, the dog killer should not be finacially rewarded for doing his time..
    I think he should be reinstated, however he should be forced to play for free for a minimum 1 year. There is no way if anyone else that was convicted of the same crime would be able to just continue work and make over 1 million dollars within months after being let out of jail!!
    The ass bag should have to play for free, and be placed in a room with a steak around his neck so a pack of Pits, and American Bulldogs, and Rotties can have at him.
    And all of you people that think his crime is less important because he didnt harm humans are retarded……
    Have of the humans murdered are criminals anyway, and suck at life…….EVERY DOG is completely innocent, and half of them are smarter than alot of humans….so your argument sucks..the majority of people that get murdered on the streets of Baltimore could never be as effective as a dog…..at least a dog can find a home
