Ah, we've finally arrived on Mike Vick. By now everyone, even those not familiar with sports know about the Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting ring that Vick was involved in. In 2007, Vick was arrested and through numerous charges regarding interstate commerce and dogfighting, Vick was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison, more than any of his co-conspirators who testified against him in court.
Vick was picked up by the eagles in 2009, and had an okay season as the backup to Donovan McNabb. In 2010, when starter Kevin Kolb went down, Vick played lights out, he was utterly amazing. Especially if you picked him up off the waiver wire in fantasy football like I did. Anyway, Vick had a strong year this year, even though he was injured, which has become a common theme with his career.
Michael Vick is one of the better pure athletic talents that I can recall in the history of the NFL. He can start for me on my prison team as my quarterback any day.
