I sent out an e-mail with low expectations on any strong interest in Vick. I asked the other bloggers to categorize each team's possible interest in three categories:

Might have an interest.
It's a long shot, but don't totally rule it out.
Not even a chance.
I even turned to a higher power for the NFC East. With Matt Mosley unavailable, John Clayton filled in. When I sorted through the responses, I was slightly surprised because the interest was even weaker than my expectations. I'll break it down by the categories.
On to our final category.

Not even a chance: Packers, Vikings, Steelers, Ravens, Browns, Chiefs, Chargers, Titans, Colts, Texans, Dolphins, Jets, Seahawks, Rams, 49ers, Cardinals, Redskins, Eagles, Giants, Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers and Falcons.

That's 23 teams and some, such as the Seahawks, Rams, 49ers, Giants and Jets, already have come out and publicly said they're not interested in Vick. So has Arthur Blank, the Falcons' owner, who had to suffer through the whole debacle.

MV has NOT finished his sentence yet so he should not be reinstated for that reason alone. However, if he ever is reinstated I will immediately stop watching or reading anything regarding this NFL. Itís time we forced people to take responsibility for their actions. Convicted felons canít vote, canít get jobs as teachers, councilors, doctors, or in many Government agencies, but they can make millions per year in Pro Football? What he did was deplorable and inexcusable. Throw him to the curb. Better yet, chain him in a pen and let HIM be the bait to train a fighting dog.

Michael Vick is a winner, and he made a mistake, the people at ESPN needs to stop judging for the world someone else mistake. America was built on forgiveness and not on putting down the hope of others, so leave Michael Vick along and help him and pray for him and realize that we all sin and if you believe its not true you are a liar and the truth is not in you.

Michael Vick might have done wrong, but if we knew the things that others have done, especially whites like Ryan Leaf, and other White athletes would we be so fast to say a bad word about them. What about the people selling drugs in the league and causing our children to die, what about them. There are all types of wrong doing, lets forgive and not hold on to evil when I am for sure he did not know it was truly wrong. But which is worse dog fighting or wife beating, complain about that to the world of all the sports figures who beat their mates, and let me hear from the women in the world about that.

Just let him rant. We already know he's talking about his own racism
