Totally agree....Vick pretty much lost everything cuz of this thing ...give the guy another chance...

The guy is a sociopath that MURDERED dogs for 6 years. Add to the fact that he only showed remorse when he was caught. I'm sorry, but Vick has to be the biggest idiot in the world to jeopardize $15 million dollars he was due to make so he could fight some dogs. I love the balance of thug-life BS and wealth that some of these NFL athletes try to maintain once they enter the NFL. Really worked for Plaxico, Vick and Pacman Jones. Goodell should have booted him from the league permanently. NFL athletes still get too much of a pass after breaking the law.

Also, Vick was past his prime before he went away and there were question marks as to if he should even be a starting QB in the league anymore. This experiment is going to be a disaster for Philadelphia.

For a team that was already a contender, I'm not sure a distraction like this is worth a back up QB. Every time there's a press conference Vick will come up. After 6 weeks the players and coaches will be very tired of it, then he's eligible. This will last all year and I think mentally take away from them contending. And they over paid big time. Why not offer the league minimum? It's not like he had leverage. Bad move IMO.

This is no more of a bad move as when they drafted QB Kolb in the 2nd round a few years back. I for the life of me do not understand why the Eagles treat McNabb so poorly. I think this signing has more to do with the Eagles getting prepared to move in a diferent direction from McNabb

No, premeditation is the key here. You don't see Ray Carruth walking the streets do you? Our court system/ general population has sympathy for those who didn't intend to commit their crimes. Like it or not people can understand how you can have too much too drink and then recklessly drive. People can't understand how you can get off to animals ripping each other apart.

That being said I do think he deserves another chance and I give African props for actually breaking down the signing. I too wondered if the Vick signing could be a way to push McNabb out the door. Everyone knows that Philly doesn't like to pay big contracts. Could this be a message to McNabb that he is replaceable?

I don't recall the last wild fire that started naturally.
The Eagles are a good match for Vick. McNabb is getting up there and he has had a hard time staying healthy, so Vick could get some serious playing time on a very good team. Then all you people who hate him can watch him get hit, and he used to get hit really hard and often due to his running too much.
i know vick was never a great qb.. but i'm curious to see if he still has some wheels left in the tank.. that dude gave defenses fits with his speed

Lightning causes wild fires all of the time. Fires are a natural occurance.

Exactly what I have been trying to say all along.

He may deserve another chance, but hes certainly not my choice for a QB.
