Rams are hot for Vick

NFL_vick_250.jpgIt has been assumed for weeks if not months that the St. Louis Rams will be one of the top suitors for Eagles quarterback Mike Vick.

The connection is obvious — G.M. Billy Devaney served as assistant G.M. in Atlanta when Vick played quarterback there.  (And, amazingly, Devaney hasn’t ruled out further association with Vick based on that experience.)

Then there’s the reality that the Rams have no clear-cut option at quarterback.  Signing Vick would allow them to take one of the top-tier defensive tackles with the first overall pick and pass on the risks inherent to taking a quarterback.

One potential unknown in this regard is ownership.  Though Shahid Khan has no control over the team yet, it would be prudent for Devaney to ensure that Khan would be OK with the notion of Vick coming to St. Louis.  If Khan has concerns, Vick might not be a good fit.

But there’s no real downside, in our view.  The Eagles already have absorbed the not-as-bad-as-expected P.R. hit for giving a reformed dogfighter a second chance.  And it’s hard to imagine many folks in St. Louis getting worked up about Vick’s arrival, especially since one of the local delicacies consists of a two slices of bread stuffed with the fried contents of a calf’s cranium.

  1. On top of that the Rams run the Eagles offense. This makes alot of sense, so it probably wont happen

  2. It’s amazing how everyone gets fired up about the Rams potentially being owned by Limbaugh but don’t care that this scumbag could be their QB. The priorities in our society is mind boggeling to say the least.

  3. correction: they arent drafting vick, theyre trading for him. long day, florio?
    i actually hope they keep vick. he wasnt used enough at all, reid should have had a big book of tricky and funky plays with vick at wr and whatnot. if they used him the way he could have been used (assuming he was actually working hard and not bullshitting) philly would be all for keeping him on that second year option. they do that this year, then see what exactly hes worth.

  4. “Rams are Hot for Vick”
    Thats because Vick’s rub on a team is almost like a Cool, soothing sensation that works vapor fast while jelling with his dawgs err cellmates err teammates. Talk about a way to clear up a congestive Offence err offense.

  5. Hey they might as well sign him. They already have a murderer on defense. If they get it done this week maybe we can set up a cage match: Little/Vick vs. Lewis/Stallworth.

  6. Mark Bulger:
    Career QB Rating: 84.4
    Career Passing Yards: 22,814
    Career TD Passes: 122
    Career Dogs Killed: 0
    Michael Vick:
    Career QB Rating: 75.9
    Career Passing Yards: 11,591
    Career TD Passes: 72
    Career Dogs Killed: Career Leader in NFL
    Looks like a definite upgrade there………

  7. I’m sure St. Louis-based Purina would be pleased. I hope they draft a QB so my miserable Lions are in a better position on their only somewhat positive day(s) of the year, draft day.

  8. “since one of the local delicacies consists of a two slices of bread stuffed with the fried contents of a calf’s cranium”
    what the hell

  9. Calves are bred for food. Somehow I don’t thinki the dogfighting thing will fly in the midwest as easily as it did in the desperate urban shithole known as Philadelphia.

  10. I think if the Rams took Vick and drafted Suh, i think the fans would be 50/50, there are many fans who believe in 2nd chances and some who don’t, i could see them doing this move seeing that defensive tackle could give them a front line that would be VERY scary.

  11. Steven Jackson & Vick in the same backfield?!
    SJAX will be fantasy gold this year with Vick drawing attention and hesitancy from defenders (if they can both stay health!
    See Warrick Dunn!
    RB’s have career years with Vick at QB.

  12. Vick isn’t going to St. Louis. The guy is washed up. The Rams GM is already on thin ice. He’s not going to gamble his job with Vick.

  13. …ummm I’m from STL and I don’t get the brain samich reference…but I’m justa hick I spose…as for Vick, a faction of our less than tolerant fanbase is already up in arms regarding a possible Vick acquisition…in the end, I hope it happens and Devaney and crew realize this four pillars nonsense for what it is–nosnsense–guys can make mistakes and still be good players and good citizens…save the sermons for Sundays before the games start

  14. “Drafting Vick would allow them to take one of the top-tier defensive tackles with the first overall pick and pass on the risks inherent to taking a quarterback.”
    What round do you think they will draft Vick, Florio?

  15. Holy (head cheese) Cow. The guy write upwards of 50 spots a day, he can make a typo without getting blasted. I would love to have the Rams’ 3rd rounder for Vick. BTW St Louis is the most overrated baseball town ever.

  16. Well, they were cool with Leonard Little killing a human being…so I assume they’d be fine with Vick killing a dog or 20.

  17. is this possibly the most innuendo laden headline to ever appear on PFT?
    seriuosly mike, you gotta get your head outta the gutter.

  18. Here we go again. Vick did not do something bad after having one drink to many, or snorting some coke.
    Mike Vick systematically tortured and killed dogs over a long period of time because of a character flaw. HE ENJOYED IT.

  19. “Signing Vick would allow them to take one of the top-tier defensive tackles with the first overall pick and pass on the risks inherent to taking a quarterback.

    Inherent risks with taking a QB? So there was no inherent risks in taking guys like Gerard Warren, Vernon Gholston, Robert Gallery, Mike Williams, Tony Mandarich, Brian Bosworth, Ki-Jana Carter, etc?
    Florio, as shown by your draft analysis throughout PFT history, you know nothing about player evaluation. Stick to the rumor mongering business and leave the analysis to the experts (Which, btw, does NOT incluce McShay).

  20. Man, I love this time of year. It’s almost better than “Days of Our Lives”. And that’s sayin something.

  21. Current Rams owner Chip Rosenbloom has written and directed 3 “Shiloh” movies. Shiloh is the story about a boy who rescues an abused puppy. Add that spin to your next Vick story.

  22. @ SF Saints Fan –
    Maybe you should compare playoff records. Vick has made it to an NFC Championship game…pretty sure Bulger hasn’t. That loss by the way is to a guy that “can’t win big games” (big games clearly are defined only by Super Bowls according to all you idiots out there….der!)
    The guy deserves a chance to start. I don’t care if they keep him or trade him, but he deserves the chance to prove all you a-holes wrong.
    Go get ’em Mike, let’s enjoy finding out what excuses all of the perfect people in the world come up with when you succeed.

  23. This is great for Vick. He gets to be a starting QB again. With Steven Jackson in the backfield and by also adding some good weapons for Vick to throw to, the Rams will something to think about. Maybe even be 6-10 next year with Vick. Just glad to see Vick back in the news for him as a player and not just a dogfighter. He looks really sincere in his reality show. The people behind Vick are doing a wonderful job. Hopefully Vick doesn’t go mess it all up.

  24. I forgot that all u ppl judging Micheal Vick had such perfect little lives… The man made a mistake went to jail and served his time.. leave him alone, and before he went to jail he was a damn good maybe not great but damn good q.b. with no wideouts, u guys really suck. Ya’ll might be using one computer and letting all the billy bobs and a dude name slim who might be 350 pounds…. oh yea almost forgot, cut holes in dem white sheets and tell me how good of an nfl qb you are. wonder if vick was white would this still be an issue.. Wonder who u good ole boys gone blame obama for this..

  25. As a Rams fan and a St. Louisan for all my life, I have ever never eaten “the local delicacies consists of a two slices of bread stuffed with the fried contents of a calf’s cranium”, that sounds terrible. We prefer to identify ourselves with toasted ravioli, sweet bbq sauce, and thin-crust pizza when it comes to food, thanks.
    Also, Vick should not be allowed on our team. I get that he’s “reforming” and all that jazz, but he has no place here. We know Bulger isn’t the greatest, but at least he’s a stand-up guy. My opinion is that we draft a 2nd or 3rd round QB, draft Suh and do better (not that hard) this year. I’ll take a slow rebuild over having deplorable character players on our team.

  26. At SFSaintsFan:
    Can you please post a link to the stats site that shows that Vick is the career active leader in dogs killed? I’m pretty sure that stat isn’t kept because if it were, there would probably be plenty of players out there guilty of dogfighting

  27. Good point on the Devaney connection. Everyone knows about the bonds young quarterbacks form with their…ummm…assistant GM?

  28. Really tired of my comments not getting posted, nothing I am saying is bad or worse than some clown calling someone on here a virgin who likes magic.

  29. Been in StL for 20 years (thanks for the condolences) and never even heard reference to that bread-grain-dead-brain thing.
    If Rams do take Vick, we’ll need some billboards around the city reminding the ladies that the athletic-looking guy named Ron Mexico has herpes and is known to spread it about intentionally. We’ll also need to alert the airport security folks to ignore the secret pot stash pockets on his waterbottles. MO is the leading state in the nation for illegal and inhumane puppy mills out in rural “God’s Country.” So the dog thing should be OK. I’m seeing a new bronze 3-sport statue downtown next to the old courthouse where the infamous Dred Scott decision was issued: Vick, McGwire, and Danton.
    And SFSaints Fan, thanks for the reality check. If the Rams are so bad as to drag Bulger down this far, just think what they’ll be capable of doing to Vick. Depths previously unexplored.

  30. @voxveritas
    you made it one game into the playoffs after 14 years and are suddenly acting like youre in the superbowl when in reality its a wildcard game. since 1996 youre 1-4 in that round, were 4-1. not to mention your 0-2 divisional round record. were 5-2.
    now, its been a while since youve told us how many superbowl rings you have. go ahead, we all know you want to.

  31. @ Vick Veritas
    44-6, a true beatdown, one from which you’ll never get over…as proved by your dumb posts!
    @Chapstick2
    You posts don’t make it because…it’s you!!
    @Hooby
    Vick/Stick: they just don’t get it because you made what’s commonly referred to as a VALID POINT!

  32. “you made it one game into the playoffs after 14 years and are suddenly acting like youre in the superbowl”
    You don’t win any SuperBowls since the inception of the Super Bowl and have an overall losing record but you think that you got some kinda dominant team there.
    “were 5-2.”
    What do you want? An honorary Super Bowl trophy?
    “now, its been a while since youve told us how many superbowl rings you have. go ahead, we all know you want to.”
    Five. Not to mention 20 NFCE titles, 8 NFC titles, and the second best winning percentage in NFL history. You turdsuckers have -0- Super Bowl wins and a losing record because you suck turds. Remember that.
    20-16
    24-0
    34-14

  33. You know you guys really suprise me. You guys think you are any better of a human being when you just trash people like you are doing? Yeah what the man did was horrible, absolutly horrible. But you know what he spent a year in jail away from his family, missing the birth of his daughter, losing millions of dollars and the once great name he had. Then he gets out of jail and while yea he gets a football career back, he still has to apologize about 50 times a day for it which I am sure annoys him and he has every right to feel anoyed by answering the same questions but he does it because he owes us answers. Of course we are making him give us an answer all one at a time rather then in all at once which would save everybody alot of time and energy. Point is you guys are showing how classless you are. If you dont believe in forgiveness then either go read a bible or shut your damn trap and dont watch or pay attention to him or stories revolving around him. You people make me sick. What does the man have to do? You want him to get killed by a dog? Ohhh yeah that really makes you better then him. Have fun with petty judgements. America just needs a target to hate. I guess since M. Jackson is dead it has turned to Vick…. God strike me down now and get me out of this pathetic world!!!

  34. Let the haters hate…as anyone can see, it makes no difference. They can save these comments for when Vick is signed, and then just copy and paste these same ‘Vick bashing’ posts all during the season because it really makes no difference. Hopefully it provides some kind of therapy for them. LOL, I wonder does it hurt to be all mad about something that you can’t change? LOL

  35. Actually Florio there is a downside if Vick does nothing (my prediction) and him being signed this offseason causes the Rams to pass on Clausen or even Bradford in the draft. (I personally think Clausen will be a very solid starter).
    Having a good D-line doesn’t get you anywhere if your QB is a bum and you have a JV O-line.

  36. @ rickahh
    I am begining to think that they dont post them just because of that! I swear they arent bad either! that being said, your 44-6 beatdown was void after being spanked 3 times in a row last season sir.

  37. Ok Florio, I was born and raised in St. Louis, but have been a faithful Dallas Cowboy fan for over 40 years. I hate the Rams, Vick is a bum and has never ranked in the top 10 of any QB stat categories. So, they deserve each other.
    But I take exception to the calf brain sandwich thing. I am 53 and heve never had one, or know anyone who has had one. Our specialty here is BBQ’d pork steaks. And ask Tommy Lasorda about our Italian restaurants on The Hill. So, just kiss my ass.

  38. o0OMorrisO0o
    all those things happened to Vick because of his own actions. Please don’t get on our case because this scumbag made choices that were horrible and despicable. I hope he does go to St Louis and becomes the started. I also hope he is a horrible QB and whatever team picks him up loses every game. I don’t think he should be banned from playing but the fact is he is a scumbag and deserves all the abuse he gets. It is called karma

  39. I see the “Angry” BlueEyeDevils have rounded up another “lynch mob”.
    Give it a rest, if Vick at a 3rd string is getting more attention than most 1st strings – what does that tell you?
    If a team is willing to pay a 1.5 million roster bonus to a 3rd string qb – what does that tell you?
    Just give it up “Devils” he is and will always be the GREATEST draw in NFL HISTORY……….
    HA HA HA

  40. @ moris
    Laughing at your entire post. We are all better than him, and he never did time for dog fighting so in theory he stills owes a debt to society. Also, a lot of anger people feel towards him is that he had the life that everyone on here wanted. What pisses us off is that he was so immature, sadistic and irresponsible that he pissed away an opportunity that any of us would kill for, ironically by killing. We also get mad because had any one of us, besides the pizza delivery guys on here done the same thing or even something 100 times less serious, we never would have gotten our jobs back, let alone 3rd chances. You miss the point, some of it is jealousy, that is obvious. But it is more how we cannot understand how someone can be so dumb as to blow it for something so cruel. Don’t let Jesus strike you down, I am sure you are an upstanding individual.

    The great white CHOKE Matt Ryan is really racking up the pro bowls and playoff wins with…

    So maybe he is so GOOD he doesn’t need receivers to win playoff games and make the pro bowl………….
    You may have a point………..

  44. “On one hand, you post that no one will want Vick that he’s terrible. That no one will want Kolb, he’s not that good. That no one will want DNabb, he’s way past his prime……”
    Yeah, so? Maybe you’ll forgive me for not being impressed by any of them?
    “Take your time machine back to the 90’s, McFly, and enjoy. 1-5’boys are way past their prime.”
    At least they had a prime. And don’t forget that they’re still better than the 0-3gles.

  45. “Give it a rest, if Vick at a 3rd string is getting more attention than most 1st strings – what does that tell you?”
    I dunno, maybe that the 3rd stringer is very controversial?
    “If a team is willing to pay a 1.5 million roster bonus to a 3rd string qb – what does that tell you?”
    That there are some really stupid, really badly run teams in the NFL.

    So what? You wouldn’t give half a shit about any of that if he wasn’t a football player.
    “he still has to apologize about 50 times a day for it which I am sure annoys him and he has every right to feel anoyed by answering the same questions but he does it because he owes us answers”
    I’m annoyed that tax dollars had to be spent to convict his felon ass.
    “If you dont believe in forgiveness then either go read a bible or shut your damn trap”
    How about you shut my damn trap for me or STFU with your big talk, big boy?

  47. Just as the rest of the other St. Louisians have said, I have no idea what the hell Florio was talking about in regards to that “sandwich”. If not Vick, maybe the RAMS should go after Chad Pennington and draft a QB in the 2nd round. Draft Suh first. Just a thought……

  48. Rams fan here, and I hope they don’t trade for Vick. Aside from the off-the-field stuff (which includes his admission that he never worked as hard as he should have while in ATL), he’s not a QB that can put the whole franchise on his back and carry it. The Rams need to draft a QB and groom him – they’re in rebuilding mode, and have way too many holes to be giving up draft picks. Vick should be picked up by a team that is a serviceable QB away from taking the next step. That is definitely not the Rams.
    As for the brain sandwich reference, I know of one bar in St. Louis that serves it – never tried it, and never heard of it until a few years ago. If Florio really knew St. Louis, he’d know the local delicacies here are toasted ravioli and thin-crust pizza covered in provel cheese.

  49. It would be a mistake to take Vick accept he probably won’t cost all that much and if they sign him to a short contract with incentives it might be worth it. But if the Rams don’t sign another QB, like some mediocre older veteran QB, (and by mediocre i mean better than Bulger last few years and probably better than Vick will ever be) they are garunteeing themselves another early draft pick.
    I am from south of St Louis and I have eaten cow brain, cow stomach, cow tongue, mountain oysters, and its just like everything it is good if it is cooked right. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Possum!

    ” … What does the man have to do? You want him to get killed by a dog? … God strike me down now and get me out of this pathetic world!!!

    Yes, he should be killed by a pack of dogs, and if drowning and electrocution could be worked in there somewhere, that would be great. As far as getting out this “pathetic world” … since you think Vick is an OK guy, I’m more than happy to be the one to send you on to your final resting place.

  51. All right all you tree huggers and righteous animal rights whinners…THE BUFFALO BILLS would love to have VICK!!!! He did his time. He made a bad choice. Get over it!!!! God…go find something else to whine about!

  52. It didn’t take me much time scrolling through these comments to encounter the first idiot to pull out the race card. As always, the vapid diatribe was accompanied by the ever present “people in glass houses…” malarkey. Isn’t it ironic that serial forgiveness has become a unfortunate necessity for most fans since morons like Michael Vick began to dominate sports. Yeah, I’ve made mistakes in my life. I got a few speeding tickets, I paid my taxes late a time or two, and I think once in the second grade I stole a candy bar from the A and P. Guess what? I never murdered dogs for profit and fun, and the idea that I am required to forgive this savage for the mistakes he made because of the ones I’m guilty of is ridiculous. Still, the Rams may acquire his services despite his past. I wish them the best, although for my money, besides his renown as a dog-killer, there’s one other thing Michael Vick is famous for– being the most overrated player in the history of the NFL.

  53. @ kiswim
    Again with him doing his time? Are you blind? What the hell is wrong with you and others who keep implying that he did his time. He didn’t do any time for dog fighting. Why is this so hard for you to understand! If he does his time I for one will stop “whining” about it.

  54. There are two sides to the whole Michael Vick Story:
    Group Number 1:
    These people believe, first and foremost, that Vick was a good or very good QB and still has something left in the tank. They believe Vick was “special” and brought certain intangibles to the game that go beyond his average at best passing stats. They also believe that he “did his time”, “paid his dues”, “deserves a second chance”, “made a bad decision”, “has had to live with what he has done”, “has lost sooooo much”, and the best one is that “he deserves a chance to start”. This group may have issues with the whole dog fighting thing (or maybe not), but they think that Vick has gotten past that issue.
    Group Number 2:
    Most of these people believe Vick was an average to below average QB at best, has a history of off the field issues, “Ron Mexico”, Valtrex issues, Dog Fighting, running an interstate gambling ring and now his admission that he really didn’t work very hard when he was with Atlanta. (Didn’t somebody call him a coach killer?) All of these issues combine to make Vick a less than stellar figure for this group and many of them could not care less what happens to Vick and his NFL career.
    In the end a team will have to decide. Is Vick a better QB than any of their other options and if he is, do you want to deal with the fallout? Being in Philadelphia for one year was the best possible scenario for Vick. The vast majority of the Eagles fan base did not care at all that he was on the roster and most of them were holding out hope that the Eagles would be able to trade Vick for a draft choice to help the Eagles win.
    I personally think Vick has been vastly overrated as a QB, but that he had some special skills that made defenses look like junior high schools squads at times. I also think that people do “deserve” forgiveness once they have truly acknowledged their misdeeds. I am not sure Vick has really come clean on all that he has done, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt. Given all of that, I think he would be a QB upgrade for a few teams, but that the baggage he brings with him would not be worth the positives he brings to the table for most of those teams.

  55. Vick served his time AND lost $200 million dollars! Now he’s being punished because he can’t make people “believe” he’s remorseful…It’s time to give it a rest!

  57. The characteristics that made him cruel, heartless ,dispicable and low off the field will make him a winner on the field. He is lucky he had Tony Dungy on his side.Out of respect for Dungy the whole matter of his animal torture and killing was toned down.He paid his debt,so maybe he can cause meaningfull success for some franchise out there ,if he doesent catch amnesia and start killing animals again.joe caprio

  58. @ Zell
    I hate to be redundant, actually no I dont care if I am or not, he didn’t serve his time as he served no time for animal cruelty. And I am pretty sure he didn’t “lose” 200 million dollars. He lost the opportunity to earn the rest of his 200 million dollars which he is getting a chance to get back.

  59. From what I’ve heard,You are just trying to sell a story that is totally false.What is it a slow day in the newsroom?

  60. Its a game people, and Vicks past is not something that should be forgotten. He killed animals for his amusement. How can any team want a person with those morals. So he can play a game, that does not give him the right to do what he did. The money he had put him in the position to kill. Is this what our country is coming to. Yes they were “dogs” and those “dogs” cry when hurt, bleed when beaten and die but didnt deserve to be treated like hunks of meat! In any humans eyes he will never be forgiven. What he did is something that shouldnt be forgiven. For him to be in the public eye again makes it seem like all is forgiven. Well to us who care about “life” it will never be. There are honorable men playing the “game” so why is Vick out there with them. His name shouldnt be mentioned in the same breath as them. He is a low life. May he rot in hell for what he did and all those who use animals for their own amusement! I hope he dies a million deaths like he killed those animals. He isnt sorry for what he did only sorry he was stupid enough to get caught. Just listen to him he has no remorse and people with that kind of attitude dont deserve to be given another chance at showing they are human.

  61. I agree with BigBlueFan, Vick should go to the NFL Penal Team with Stallworth and Lewis and the gang.

  62. Come on these dogs were bread for fighting, and they served their purpose. It is not like he went in to your house stole your family pet and killed it. It is like cows that a born and bread for food or other products. Really what is the big deal?

  63. I love the Rams but if they sign Vick my favorite team every Sunday will be the team playing the Rams. He does have a right to play but PLEASE not with the Rams. Let’s hope the new owner is a dog lover.

  64. If Vick does go to the Rams and the Rams start to win, no one is going to think about the dogs. Of course 8-8 for the rams would be a great season.

  65. I hate abuse of anything and anybody. That being said this urge to punish after the justice system has done it’s job speaks poorly about the character of the average sort fan. If he can pass a drug test he has one leg up on that fat talk radio pea brain!

  66. so let me get this straight pshyciatrists say kids torture and kill animals it means they will grow up to be sociopaths, but when we find out about a athlete who’s been doing it for years it means he’s normal and deserves to be a “role model” for our kids? how bout i have some guy forcibly rape your mother just to have babies that i can train to be mma fighters( hopefully they are good at that) then kill your mother by beating her with brickshots to the chest(unless she dies after having so many pregnancies) and continue this process for years and years would you approve?

  67. for all you supporters who say who cares how bout this you man up, stop fighting animals and get your ass into an mma or boxing ring dont have the animals do shit just because your too scared

  68. @ dogedog
    They were bread like this by being starved, beaten and abused. They didn’t come out as fighters. Also dog fighters often go and steal family dogs, golden retrievers, poodles, labs etc and then throw those dogs, who are calm in nature, in a ring with pitts that these scumbags have abused since they were puppies to use them as bait.

  69. Best two comments were back to back….(See, SF Saints Fan and zell). All I’ll say is, I predicted a move with Vick to St. Louis as soon as he was released. I’ve always said any team could get him for little to nothing for multiple years to start, because he has to prove himself worthy for 2-3 years before garnering another big contract. In a perfect world: Sign Vick, Draft Shu (Suh?), draft another QB in the latter rounds and make Vick the newly drafted QB and our 3rd stringer compete for the starting spot. *NEWFLASH* Behind the scenes, CEO’s don’t care what fans think, they care about the best possible ways to win. And if having a dog killer on the team helps turn the franchise around, SO BE IT!!!! I find sickening to value an animals life so vigorously, when soldiers are being mamed in IRAQ along with civilians and no one says a word pubicly. At any rate, being from St. Louis, this city believe it or not is rich in Italian and German ancestry. And yes there is a “hoosier” element mixed in as well (LOL). Toasted Ravioli’s and thin sliced pizza are definately the highest rated dishes (Ciceros, TJ’s-frozen and IMO’S). Don’t know about all the brains and stuff (?) Oh RATS!!!! St. Louis just ranked as the 7th worst city to live in today. Oh well, I’m lovin it. Welcome to the LOU Mr. Vick (hopefully)!!!!!!! pEaCe.

    Whoooo good one comparing slodiers to dogs… Soldiers volunteer for their service and every last one of them are braver than any one of us. And I for one am damn proud of them and what they do. Way to use a “shock” comparison to try to scare us away from hating Vick. Fact is, he didn’t serve time for dog fighting and he is a complete sociopathic scumbag and the fact that you compared him to our soldiers makes you a sad sad soul.

  71. Vick the DICK Dog Killing LOSER SACK OF SHIT small minded brainless little man he is@@@ And all of you who think he has paid his price…Maybe you need to go get your asses electrocuted, burned, drowned etc etc and then come back and say just because this loser can throw a fuc king football he should simply be forgiven… All of you need to leave this planet as you like Vick are worthless travelers on this planet… FU K you all and FU K football to for that matter I’m done with this shit forever… Football has lost its morals completely and so have the rest of you idiots@@@

  72. Vick is a sick individual. The only team he belongs on is a prison team. The Rams and the Eagles should be ashamed of themselves.

    Come on these dogs were bread for fighting, and they served their purpose. It is not like he went in to your house stole your family pet and killed it. It is like cows that a born and bread for food or other products. Really what is the big deal?
    ————————————————————-
    WOW – what is the BIG DEAL?
    So it’s OK to take animals that wouldn’t fight & attach electrodes to their genitals & watch them scream in pain as you shock & burn their balls over & over during a 6 year period. It’s OK to take animals that wouldn’t fight & hold them underwater & drown them as they fight for air & to repeat this type of behavior for 6 years. It’s OK to take animals that that were sick or wouldn’t fight & slam them down over & over on concrete essentially beating them to death as they screamed in pain on a regular basis for SIX MISERABLE YEARS, and all for ENTERTAINMENT purposes??? This is OK & not a big deal??
    MV had the financial means to have a vet put these animals down properly, he didn’t. He & his “family” were having too much fun thinking of ways to increasingly inflict pain on those types of animals as they killed them.
    Anyone that thinks that way of life is ok, to heinously torture animals with your bare hands for personal amusement, to watch & listen to them scream in pain for laughs isn’t human.
    This isn’t about dog fighting, it isn’t about PETA & it certainly isn’t about race, it’s about sick, horrible, evil & unimaginable cruelty to non-fighting/unhealthy animals FOR SH*TS & GIGGLES.

  74. Lets face it, NFL players are rolemodels… it is deplorable that people like Vick should be in the spotlight. It is a privaledge to play a professional sport, a privaledge that should be taken away in light of such horrendous actions. You do not rehabilitate people like Vick, and the punishment was slight in accordance with his crime. As the (13 year) owner of a pure pit that was rescued from a fighting ring, that someone should get away with the slap on the wrist that Vick did makes me sick! He does not deserve his place in the NFL… besides he’s simply not good enough!

    I’ve got a job I wake up early for. You should introduce yourself to one, Julio – getting outside might help clear up that acne, shed some of those fat rolls and maybe when you see that the mullet went out of style about the same time the Cowboys stopped being relevant, you’ll shave it off.

  76. For all you pet lovers who fill as though Michael Vick committed the ultimate crime and doesn’t deserve a 2nd chance. Let me see you standing on the sidelines at the abortion clinics where children are being murdered daily around the world. What he did was wrong and he paid a price and his dues so yall need to be for real! Media has made NFL players role models as well as all other sports figures. We all should be role models for the next generation whether you are in the spot light or not. Just like the media is commenting on what Tiger Woods should say when he addresses the media. He didn’t marry the media but his greatest apology should be to his family. So I guess you are squirming that he is about to play in the Masters?

  77. My husband and I used to watch football often but when that Vick person killed those dogs and then they still allowed him to play football, we were disgusted. The same goes for golf which my husband used to enjoy but now that Woods guy who raped those women by bribing them ruined the sport. We can see a trend here with Obama type people getting away with commiting crimes. At least we can watch the Olympics without being forced to see those typepeople there.

  78. @ leta
    I have said this numerous times above, he never served time for dog fighting and as a result didn’t serve his time. Read all comments befor embarassing yourself.

  79. Did you know Texas is the inbred capital of the world, and Dallas is the “vox of the incestus?” By the way, Vick isn’t that good, we’ve already seen the best of him, why does everyone want him?

  80. @ Vox says: “That there are some really stupid, really badly run teams in the NFL.”
    You have Roy Williams, so nice job there. And a declining Marion Barber….

  81. Vick was a money-maker for the league, that’s why he’s getting a 3rd or 4th or 5th chance.. he was never a great QUARTERBACK. Not at V-Tech, not for ATL.
    Personally, I think he’s a spoiled bully who’s lazy and feels entitled. I bet it pisses him off he wasn’t given a Super Bowl ring, that somebody told him, Yeah Mike ya gotta go out and win that game first.
    Whatever team signs that peice of trash is my new most hated team.
    HE NEVER SERVED TIME FOR KILLING ANIMALS. Get it?

    Tiger can do what Tiger wants – to compare this to Tiger is ludicrous. As for comparing this to abortion clinics, that’s a whole other issue that again has nothing to do with the matter at hand.
    This has nothing to do with the EVIL, SADISTIC, BRUTAL & CRUEL punishment that was served at the hands of MV to those animals. As usual, as most MV defenders also do, we are bringing up issues that have NOTHING to do with the issues at hand as to divert attention away from MV’s sub-human way of life. With no way to actually defend his actions, you all try & cloud the issue speaking of topics that have nothing to do with what MV did. MV served time for bankrolling a dog fighting operation, he never served time for the drowning, electrocution, hanging, setting on fire of or beating to death of non fighting/sick animals.
    Can one MV defender tell us why (when MV got the biggest contract as BlueEyedDevils loves to shove down every ones throat) & money was no object, didn’t have a vet on site to humanely put the animals down? Why would MV (besides the fact that he is a sick, non-human creature) inflict all that cruel & violent behavior with his hands?? Defend that, you know you can’t, so keep on screaming race, PETA; Tiger (love that one lol). Man whoever said ignorance is bliss, was tellin the truth…
