we have to put ourselves at the Mercy of the system. mike vick is a talented player his story is not unlike many. a person that made a huge mistake and has payed with his freedom,self respect,the ability to support his family. nothing he has done will ever be forgotten and shouldn't be. but it is our responsibility as people to help others in there worst of times good, bad, or indifferent. i spend my life every day trying to make my life and the peoples lives that i come in contact with a better place. If the green bay packers take a chance on vick it may turn out to be a bad thing but it may also turn out to be the best desicion for the team. ted thompson said that there is no difference on how he evaluates players well from were im sitting he will be a steel. To see a person not reach his true potential is always a tradgedy, we should give him a chance to prove himselve as man, father, and last a player! i can see no downside to this. humility is a great tool we should apply it in this instance i think everyone will gain long term positive results from it.
