I could see him backing up McNabb in Philly. And with these "wild cat" offensive schemes making the rounds in the league these days, the timing is good for Vick.

I could also see him going to a team like the Steelers, because the team is fundamentally solid with great team leaders.

Hopefully the prison sentence has forced Vick to think about what he needs to do to make himself a better man. He went from very rich to flat broke.

Maybe he won't take it for granted anymore.

Ban Vick
Give it a rest. Ban him from football but allow him to put up sheet rock for a living right? Do we ban him from construction work, landscaping, and accounting also?

I could see if he was guilty of throwing a game or gambling on football or something. But what would be the purpose of the ban from football, but allowing him to earn an income with other means?

I really believe we need more time to see what he will do. I think f his toys are handed back to him too quickly he will just be the same or worse. People don't get better because we want them to.

Just as with any criminal you hope he gets out and do whta is right. Vick should be able to play if that is what he wants and if the NFL will have him back. No bans, let's see what he will do. If he blows it then that's on him and the NFL will more than likely not give him another chance. In prison you can become a better criminal or decide to live life right.

They can't answer that because what bothers them is that he will still make millions a year and they cant.
No one cares how much money he makes except you. He doesn't deserve to return to professional sports and the celebrity status he once knew because he has proven himself to be nothing more than a common street thug, not someone who should be admired or held above the rest. When are you going to hold him responsible for his actions? No one forced him to do this to himself, it was his choice. With the limited availability for athletes to become professional and the numerous athletes that would love and deserve the chance to do so why are you so concerned with "one" that can't and won't live up to the image most people have of what a professional should be?

So for you he should not be able to return to celebrity status? Just because he is a professional athlete does not mean he will be admired of held above the rest. THat is a choice people make for themselves and people do that to others regardless if they are professional athletes or not.

What image should a professional be and who determines that? What I see from your post is you don't like Vick and never did and probably wish you could be a professional athlete making money and held in high regards. Seems to me like you are jealous because you can stand to see a person you don't like have that, lose it, and potentially, have that again when you never had a chance at all.

Are you serious? First of all I didn't even know who vick was prior to this incident and secondly, professional sports is of no interest to me. I also don't walk around worrying about other peoples money and what they do with it. With that said, the term "professional" has always been considered a step above the norm. If the person using the title isn't a step above the norm they have no business being called such. That's my opinion and sorry if you don't agree but that's really no concern of mine.

Professional means you get paid for what you do. I'm a regular athlete because I don't get paid to play. We are amateur writer he because we do not get paid to write. So professional means you get paid to do your job.
