Brad: I am thrilled to see Michael Vick have the season he is having. The NFL really is a better league with him playing quarterback in it, and his electrifying play has only gotten better.
Chris: He just said “electrifying,” a word which could be potentially offensive to Scooby-Doo.
Brad: I have forgiven him for the dog fighting incident, which is a big deal for me because I love dogs. People, believe it or not, do change and I think Vick changed for the best in his time away from football.
Joe: Michael Vick’s success is due his growing up. Jail does not usually make a better person of the one incarcerated. Although, it does give one time for thought.
Brad: Joe still thinks Vick should be in jail, for being too good for opponents to deal with.
Joe: Vick was a great athlete who stepped outside the bounds of decency. He’s still a great athlete and now he’s rejoined society. Good for him!
Ralphie: I guess I am glad he is doing well, that means his team is doing well. But I still kinda have a problem with him being allowed to play again and make that much money.
Chris: The Giants, Redskins and Cowboys would be wise to feign indignation and inquire about becoming members of PETA, depending on whether they have any deals for new subscribers. A football phone would convince me.
Joe: Vick should be the poster boy for “before and after.” He epitomized totally what’s wrong with professional athletes to then become what’s right about professional athletes who can use their life to be examples to our youth. If he can influence only one other athlete, or any person for that matter, it will have been time well served.
Brad: I think he sets a great example for fans, teammates, coaches, anyone. He is showing us all that with hard work, and the right heart, you can do anything and even excel at it.
Ralphie: No not really.
Brad: Ralphie doesn’t understand why it’s illegal for dogs to fight.
Chris: Unfortunately, none of the canines involved in Vick’s association had a fighting license. This could be because dogs are not taught how to sign their names legibly.
Brad: Chris is doggin’ on him since Vick is on the Eagles, not the Cowboys. Lord knows they could use all the help they can get.
Chris: He just said “doggin’,” a word which could be potentially offensive to Old Yeller.
Joe: Someone wiser than I once said “forgive others as you would be forgiven.” Enough said.
Ralphie: If he is truelly sorry and wants to turn his life around then he is a good example.
