Uh…No! Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is definitely not having the best week ever. Within 10 days he has been ridiculed by a writer, dropped from an endorser, and is included in a tell-all book. As it stands now, Vick will be leaving the Eagles this year. Vick still believes as well as I do that he is still fully capable of being a starting quarterback. It’s not his lack of skills but his past that begs the question, where will he go? much harder. As many of you know Vick was convicted in 2007 for dog-fighting. He served 23 months in prison, was suspended from the NFL, paid fines, and lost all his endorsements. While some think he served his time many think otherwise.
For instance, there was an article written by New York Times journalist, Juliet Macur, stating her distaste for Vick’s past concerning the dog fighting incident. Macur urged other NFL teams to stay away from picking Vick up. She along with many other people are still harboring on his past and feel he should not be allowed to play. Mancor stated “Teams evaluating Vick should think about those horrors before offering him a chance to wear their jersey.” She even went on to say how the Eagles shouldn’t have gave Vick and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper a second chance.
