Default Michael Vick...BOO!!!!!!

A lot of analysts are predicting that Vick may end signing with the Steelers. I hope the Steelers DON'T sign him. If they do sign him I would be a very disappointed Steeler fan. It goes against everything the team stands for. The guy shouldn't even be in the league. F@#$ Michael Vick and the team that signs him. He is a P.O.S.

Thats a little over the top don't you think? Everybody deserves a second chance. Besides I don't see Vick coming to the Steelers anyways.

I can't imagine him coming to the Steelers. It just doesn't fit in with what the Steelers believe. I don't even consider it a real possibility at this point. It's not happening...

...at least I hope not...

I certainly hope not. I was watching NFL Live last night and they said the two best teams that fit Vick are the Steelers and the Patriots.

Steelers won't sign him.

Where the hell would he play?

He can't throw the ball for shit, so backup QB is out.

We have Parker, Mendenhall, Moore, and Frank the Tank at RB.

And nobody knows if he can even catch the ball well enough to be a #3 WR.

Over the top? The guy is a convicted felon that served two years in jail. IMO, the NFL is the best run league in pro sports that other leagues try to duplicate. Allowing convicted felons to return to the league isn't the reason for this.

Why would the Steelers want to sign him? I don't have any idea how we'd use him. Are we really going to go out on a limb and sign a guy JUST for trick plays, which we hardly even run anymore? I doubt it.

Plus, aren't we like $50 under the salary cap? Vick might not command $10 million a year anymore, but he's not going to play for free either.

I agree, and I hope you are right. However, historically the Steelers like to run gadget plays every now and then. The Dolphins made the wildcat offense a fad last season that several other teams tried to duplicate. Michael Vick would be a good guy for this offense. I am not a fan of the wildcat or Michael Vick, but I bet you see him in this offense a couple plays a game where ever he goes.

Like I said, I am not a Vick fan and definitely don't want him on our team, I just wanted to see what everyone else thinks about this. Hell, ESPN has him signing with the Steelers or Pats already.
