Michael Vick to the Dolphins! Again!

The saga continues as Michael Vick has been conditionally reinstated to the NFL by Commissioner Goodell. He will be allowed to partake in 2 pre-season games as well as practice with a team but at this point will not allowed to play in regular season games. This will be reviewed by Goodell after week 6.

The experts are once again screaming that Vick will end up in Miami. Besides the fact that this makes absolutely no sense at all (what are we going to do, cut Pat White?), there are three much more blatantly obvious places that Vick could end up - New England, Buffalo, and New York.

Let's not forget that Miami has 3 solid QBs already, and that we already have a hard enough task of getting down to 53 players and could not possibly carry a 4th QB. Then factor in that the other 3 AFC East teams would love a 'Wildcat-esque' player to practice against in prep for their 2 games vs Miami. They also don't exactly have three lovely options like Miami at QB as it is, so once his full reinstatement is allowed, Vick would help out as a likely 2nd string QB on one of these teams. I would think the Jets would love to have a run-first QB since those swirling winds up there tend to make any QB look bad throwing the ball. The Patriots are all about the preparation for their division rivals. And Buffalo, well Buffalo just sucks, and they love to take crooks up there.

    I just came across a website with an article about Vick being re-instated that had a picture of Goodell at the podium of the NFL Draft with a Dolphins logo behind him but I forgot which site and now anything I've gone back to I can't find it.

    Vick will not become a Dolphin and like Tin said if he does, what do we do with Pat White? It's not going to happen though because the trifecta does not like a media circus around their team.

    Dont see Vick outside Landshark stadium hanging out with his new favorite PETA pals

    Although the "Fan Experience" would be greatly enhanced if Vick was in front of stadium stroking a 12 foot giraffe and changing a cudly panda bears diaper
    U know with a little talcum powder and some cute baby talk

  7. Is it me or does Goodells conversations with the NFL's bandits seem to be taking on a Popey, "dominus ominus" flavor .... "Mr. Vick I believe that you are sorry ... 15 Hail Marys and 12 push-ups and a kiss of my ring should get it...go now and sin no more."

  8. LOL, I've been getting that same vibe for about a year now.

    I know that Vick has "paid his time" for the crime and that RG has added to Vicks sentence which upsets so many people. But lets not forget that Vick lied to RG's face when he said that he did not do it.

    I am actually a Vick fan (we went to High School together) but he did lie to his face and I am sure that he is not very happy about that.

    Smith is not even signed to the team yet   lol

    Hope Vonte signs  by Friday 
    His brother might be in his ear telling him yo hold firm he can get more money from "the man"

    Any guess on how much Pat White might get?

  15. Home, do you even read the news or just your own comments? Sean Smith DID
    sign with the team...

  16. Home SuperBowl 2010July 28, 2009 at 9:17 AM

    Yeah I know Tin

    posted smith meant Davis

    Retracted statement added new comment but went to above sight
    Long day already up at 3;30am
    Sleepy today
    excuse please

  17. I thought maybe you were on a different planet and hadn't heard the news...

    Self admitted news hound
    Seems I often get NFL news 1-3 hrs before SS

    Wanted Sean Smith prior to the draft
    So glad Trifecta got him
    Did not think they would esp. that early in draft

    Leaping ability with reach is frightening good
    Smith may even be a lot better than I thought as he has received very favorable reviews to date

    U are doing terrific job with your sight
    Hope future brings U much success

  19. Going back to Vick here.  Roger is the Daddy of the NFL, and in being the Daddy he's taking things into his own hands.  As your own parent may have done after causing trouble in school and being disaplined by them, the worst my be yet to come when you get home.  It is Rogers Job to protect his Family ( the NFL ) and there image.  Vick violated that image and just like when you were young, Roger simply layed down the law.  If Vick would have learned that when he was young, there would be no need for Roger to teach him that when he is in his 30s.  Don't blame Roger blame the dumb a$$ that raised Vick.  Vick is a fine example of what happens when a Parent has "NPS" No Parenting Skills.

  20. Well, I can't remember who it was but one of our regular readers watched
    Vick grow up and he was apparently a model kid back then...

  21. What ever he was then, I can't tell you.  I can say this though, from what we have seen of Mike and his brother Marcus I'll stand by my statement.  I know that's not a popular stand, but that's the view I get of the situation.
    Differences aside Tin.  Roger is protecting the image of the NFL no matter what we all think.
