Michael Vick Is Now A Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback

Giants fans groan when they think about post-prison Michael Vick‘s peak. It’s when he led the Eagles to a 21-point comeback during a regular season that ended with a punt returned for a touchdown, Tom Coughlin‘s face flushed red and Giants fans crushed.

What’s comforting to New York is how it was a short peak. Afterward, Vick went into a career purgatory that unjustly made him Geno Smith‘s backup. However, Vick’s jaw isn’t broken and he still has a job in the NFL. Vick, formerly Madden‘s cheat code, has signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to NFL.com.

“There’s not a throw on the field he can’t make from an arm-strength-standpoint, he’s a very experienced guy at what he does at this point in his career,” head coach Mike Tomlin, said to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “And obviously the mobility is still unique even at 35.”

Vick has been brought in to replace the backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, who dislocated a finger during a preseason game against the Packers (the same game Jordy Nelson tore his ACL).

The Steelers’ new addition shouldn’t change things all that much. Ben Roethlisberger is still the man in Pittsburgh, and he’s coming off what’s statistically the best season of his career. Vick only adds extra cushion.

According to NFL insider and ESPN’s reporter Adam Schefter Chip Kelly says after evaluation, Michael Vick will be the teams starting quarterback for the Monday Night Football opening game against the Washington Redskins.

The decision comes after a very competitive QB competition during the preseason, in which Vick showed a little more promise than back up Nick Foles.

The Eagles look to rebound this season, after a horrible 4-12 record and the firing of former head coach Andy Reid. Chip Kelly looks to take the birds in a new direction and Mike Vick seems to be the captain of his ship…for now.

Mike Vick “I Always Had Remorse For My Actions”


Michael Vick has been having a rough few months. His on the field play has struggled, his book has caused him death threats, he’s even been catching flack about the recent purchase of his new dog. In 2007 Michael Vick served 21 months in prison for an illegal interstate dog fighting ring that had operated for five years, but why does this incident he served his time for still haunt him to this day?

He recently posted a message on his Facebook page showing remorse for his actions:

I always had remorse for my actions – even in the moment when I was doing it… I always felt like man why…why am I even doing this.
My incarceration was bigger than dog fighting. It was done to bring awareness…to that – it was done to show that regardless of who you are, you are not above the law – and for me spiritually don’t lose sight of how you got here and stay humble.

Michael Vick Cancels Book Tour Due To Death Threats

Michael Vick

from: UrbanDaily

Michael Vick had a three-date book tour with Barnes & Noble in Georgia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania in the making, but that has all been canceled due to the complaints and threats he has been receiving.

He was supposed to be out promoting his new book, “Michael Vick: Finally Free,” but it really seems as though his life is anything but. His publishing company released a statement about why his appearances were canceled.

While we stand by Michael Vick’s right to free speech and the retailers’ right to free commerce, we cannot knowingly put anyone in harm’s way, and therefore we must announce the cancellation of Mr. Vick’s book-signing appearances,” said Byron Williamson, president of Worthy Publishing. “We’ve been assured these threats of violence, which have been reported to the police, are being taken very seriously by local authorities.

When you want to complain about a company nowadays, where is the best place to do it but Facebook? According to Philly Mag, Vick’s fan page has been bombarded with threats.

“I would go there to slit your throat knowing how you treat animals.”

“hope your kids don’t fall in a pool with a battery.”

“I would snap your neck if I met you, your [sic] a piece of trash.”

Animal Groups Barking Mad At Vick’s New Dog!

Michael Vick Still "Person Of Interest" In Club Shooting (thumbnail)


According to Bossip Michael Vick is once again on the hot seat for getting a dog. Dog Organizations across the country are up in arms about the type of breed that Vick purchased. Belgian Malinois are very trainable dogs that are often used in the military and law enforcement, so this must mean that Vick intends to fight it with other dogs right? Wrong!

How do any of these people know that this dog was not picked out by Vick’s own children? Do they know whether or not he wants the dog for protection? Do they even know if Vick knew what type of dog it was when he purchased it? Often times people fall in love with a puppy not even thinking about what it will be later on as it grows.

But even bigger still, hasn’t the man demonstrated by now that he gets it? Or that he knows that all of the eyes of the public are on him simply for having another dog? C’mon people, you don’t expect someone who went to jail for burning down houses to never live in another house. There have been people convicted of a lot worse who have seen a lot less of the backlash. So how about we let Mike Vick take his puppy to Pet’s Smart and get it trained without a collective spazz attack! He did the time, he paid a huge price and is trying his best to be a good citizen. Maybe it’s time for everyone to let him!

Has Chip Kelly Made The Right Decision Keeping Vick?


Just as Philadelphia Eagles fans started to settle into missing the NFL Football season, the Eagles announced the restructuring of Quarterback Michael Vick’s contract. With that move the national and local media went into a frenzy and started to get on their sandbox and talked about how this was the worst move the Eagles could have made.

The honeymoon period that many Eagles fans had with newly hired Head Coach Chip Kelly didn’t even make it over the threshold to the house. Fans have already decided to drop Chip at the door and get a divorce. Not so fast. Like marriage we are Eagles fans, for better and worse. I’m sure the latest move may have a lot of fans questing Coach Kelly but let me help calm your heart rate and settle you down a little.

Much of what is being said is the Eagles don’t have a future with Mike Vick and Nick Foles is a better Quarterback. LOL. If you’re saying that you truly have no football sense or you have a personal issue with Mike Vick. There is no way that anyone with common sense can truly say Foles is better than Vick, but then again many of those same people said Kolb was better than Vick. Further proves their lack of knowledge.

Before anyone jumps to conclusions, keep in mind, Andy Reid left detailed player reviews on both Mike Vick and Nick Foles. I’m sure Andy’s analysis along with the game tape gives Coach Kelly all he needs to make the right decision.  What fans are also missing is the obvious fact that a cap friendly Mike Vick contract makes him appealing to other NFL teams in case the Eagles decide to part ways with him.

Instead of running with emotional lead thoughts think about how the restructuring of Vick’s contract put the Eagles in the best possible scenario and give them leverage on other teams because they can now move either Quarterback and get max value.

Personally, I believe Mike Vick gives the Eagles the best chance to win now. I also believe the future Quarterback of the Eagles is not currently on the roster, nor do I believe he is in this years draft class. So don’t panic just yet, it’s still very early and in a months time we could easily be talking about just how great this one decision help jumpstart our road back to having a respected football team.
