Is Michael Vick Worth the Trouble? July 19, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in NFL, Sports.
After another incident with the law due to his involvment in a dog fighting, I started to wonder if it was actually worth it to keep Micheal Vick. Vick isn’t a proven winner and refuses to work on his passing game (If he really worked on it, it would show by now). In his seven years in the league, the only thing Michael Vick can say he has accomplished is having hundreds of highlights. Vick isn’t in a postion where he can continue to have legal trouble. Every since he became a starter in 2001, every year fans hope to see some type of improvement, but every year it’s just the same old Vick. Running around breaking rushing records instead of being a quarterback and leading his team to victory. In addition to the problems on the field, Vick stays in the trouble with the law, as you can see below. With Vick, you get an exciting quarterback who has no desire to improve and stays in trouble with the law. The Facons should trade him now while he still has value and get a player commited to winning.
Some of Vick’s other career highlights:
(2005) Woman sues Vick stating that he knowling gave her Herpes. The lawsuit was eventually settled out of court.
(2006) Vick flips the bird to fans in the crowd after a loss to the Saints. He was fined $10,000 by the NFL
(2007) Security at Miami International Airport retrieve a water bottle belonging to Vick that had a secret compartment. In the compartment was a substance beleived to be marijuana.
(2007) Vick misses flight for a scheduled appearance on Capitol Hill, in an effort to persuade lawmakers to increase funding for after school programs. Vick failed to make an appearance.
(2007) Vick has recently been indicted for conspiracy to aid and sponsor dog fighting. If convicted, Vick can face up to six years in prison. Due to court hearings, Vick will miss the first team practice under new coach Bobby Petrino.
