Ever since Madden 2003, I have dreamed of Michael Vick in a Rams' uniform.

Yes, I have always supported Kurt Warner, but it was picking Vick in a fantasy draft for franchise mode that my mind exploded in what the Rams offense could be with Michael Vick.

Of course this was in the days of the Greatest Show on Turf, but regardless, Michael Vick would bolster the Rams sorry excuse for an NFL offense. The last two seasons have been morbid to say the least and whatever Bulger supporters there were at the beginning of '08 are surely wearing another face or hiding in a cave in Montana.

The bottom line is this team finished 2-14, 2 and bloody 14.

That's harsh, and short of the Lions, I really can't see the Rams doing worse this season, there is literally no risk in signing Michael Vick, only benefit.

The greatest benefit is even with a young offensive line, Michael Vick has the ability to get away from pressure and avoid sacks much better than the brittle and slow Bulger. This is an instant plus, also, Michael Vick as poor a passer as he has been labeled, although not that immensely poor, better than Derek Andersen, is better than Bulger has been the last two seasons, because even with accuracy in hand, Bulger has always had a girl's arm.

Then there's the media factor, no publicity is bad publicity and much of the league has forgotten the Rams organization, they are never talked about, while getting Vick in town would not only booster jersey sales, I know I'd buy one, but also get some much needed news coverage, and as we know, there's more pressure on the players to succeed when the media spotlight is on them, sometimes it can be for the worse, but I again can't see the Rams getting any lower.

Lastly, the new coach of the Rams is rush happy, Vick would only fit better in his system than most others, and when a rush coach has a running QB, watch out.
