Have you ever hear the phrase, "When one door closes, another one opens?"

Well, this may have happened when Brett Favre decided not to join the Minnesota Vikings as the starting quarterback.

The "Favre Watch," since the beginning of May is finally over.

Vikings fans now only have hopes of Michael Vick, who in my opinion, is not a good choice for Minnesota.


Well, first of all, I would not like someone like him on the team I cheer for. Vick was arrested for sponsoring dog fighting back in 2007. Whenever he throws a touchdown, I will be sad because I am cheering for a player who has done some terrible things.

Also, I think the Vikings should stick with Sage Rosenfels because that is why they traded for him.

I think Rosenfels will show how good he actually is, considering he played with a mediocre team back in Houston with the Texans and was a backup to Matt Schaub.

I think Minnesota fans had enough with Favre, and now their hearts are beating again when we hear Vick might join.

Maybe now with the Vick buzz going on, we should switch it around to the new "Vick Watch!"

When he was reinstated, a few articles went out regarding what teams he could join. If he does come back to the NFL, it had better not be the Vikings.

Michael Vick, stay away from my favorite football team!
