Michael Vick

64 posts in this topic

Can't stand him, never have. I am an old school QB fan- the QB gets paid throw the ball, not tuck and run 4 out of every 5 downs. Now all this dog stuff comes out- could this be a situation where the NFL could step in and ban him for a year, or worse for him, a situation where the judges get involved (I think the FBI already is) and he sits in the clink for awhile? Whats everyone else think of this genius-

He really hasn't had a lot of guys to throw to down there. Crumpler and that is about it. Some games he looks like god and some games he looks like dog crap. Way to incosistent and inaccurate. For the dog thing, if he is guilty and it looks like he is, lock him up. He has money so probably going to get off like every other celeb/athlete.

he has had some guys that other qb's could do ok with. peerless price was good in buffalo, plus back to back 1st rd. picks in roddy white and michael jenkins, and crumpler, finneran is ok. now they signed joe horn, so maybe that will help. i agree that i have never been a fan of vick, and after the video that SC showed on dog-fighting i would like to do to him what those dogs do to each other. that stuff is crazy.

I seen last night on the news that a search warrant was denied for a house that he owns or used to own in Virginia. I guess there could be up to 30 dog carcases there. I wonder why it was denied?

I was watching ESPN last night and they were showing clips of dog fights. It almost made me sick to my stomach. Vick is innocent until proven guilty. Regardless, whoever is responsible for this should have the full extent of the law thrown at them.

In his first start 2 seasons ago Matt Schaub threw for over 300 yards and 3 TD's against the patriots with the same recievers Vick had. Too the point Vick had NEVER had a 3 TD game. Schaub does it in his first start. Vick=joke.

The dog fighting thing is absolutely sickening. If he's convicted, he should definitely do hard time and be suspended from the league for at least a year.

As for Vick's talent, I think he's an athlete rather than a quarterback. When you're top target is the tight end (Crumpler), then it shows that he can't put the ball downfield on a consistient basis.

Obviously he's not going to be convicted of this and do any hard "LOL" jail time.

Him and his brother Marcus are worthless, sorry, but true. I am obviously not an NFL qb, but neither is he. Dilfer had a better arm than this POS, and I can't stand the guy.

The guy is a tremendous athlete with a cannon for an arm but his accuracy and decision making is lacking for a starting NFL quarterback. Yes his freinds are probably taking advantage of him but his off the field decisions shed a light to his real character. First his "water bottle" incident at that airport and now the alledged dog fighting business. He had to have knowledge of that. I'm sure as the investigation continues one of his "friends" will roll over on him. If he is indeed guilty then I hope the commisioner treats him the same type punishment as the gave to the Bears Tank Williams and a few others. I like thier new personal conduct policies.....

Pier,

I would say half wrong. He will be convicted, but serving time as an athlete is whole different ballgame. He may get "Paris Hilton" time!!

this is federal crime so he would be in a federal prison which i don't think it would be like county for Paris......and by the way fed ind. have a 96% conviction rate so good luck Mike Vick!!!!!

Both Vic brothers are just football playing thugs. Can you believe the younger Vic actually wound up on a NFL team with his past record? Just shows you all the Psychological testing they do on these guys dont mean Shnit. If they can play ball teams will sign them no matter what.

Northlander, im not sure they can play ball. They are just overhyped like many affletes these days.... I like his halfasssed apology-" Im sorry for the distraction this caused" That statement shows zero responsibilty. He's basicaly saying sorry everyone blew it out of proportion. I quit watching the NFL because of players like him.

This is a federal indictment. Usually they don't bring someone in unless they've got some darn good evidence for getting a conviction. This won't be a "Paris Hilton" ordeal, but he will get less than what the maximum is...much less (if convicted).

By the way....Vick is no qb....he's an "x-back". He can run like he!!, but his passes and decision making aren't worth a darn. I bet Tiki Barber had a better passer rating that Vick does! shocked.gifgrin.gif

WOW! I think that the Vick dog fighting fiasco and then these two nimrods sticking up for him is the final straw for me having any respect for the NFL. I thought Clinton Portis might have had some class, I was way wrong on that one. What an (Contact Us Please).

Thanks for posting that B.I.D.

A friend that has pleaded guilty to charges linked with Vick has now said that Vick was financing the action at his house. I take it as Vick is a lying scumbag saying that he had no idea what was going on at his house- sounds like he very well knew what was going on and had a big part in it.

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!
