Armchair GM: It is Time to End this Michael Vick Nightmare
Okay, I’ve really f-ing had it with this crap. I’ve had it with his horrible play. I’ve had it with his being kept on the team even after he proved he was worthless.
I’ve had it with his main enabler and butt buddy, Mike Tomlin, first sneaking him onto the team and now harboring him. I’ve had it with having to feel this wave of disgust each time I see him on the Steelers’ sideline.
I’ve had it with trying to justify why the Pittsburgh Steelers are superior to any other team. I’ve had it with trying to rationalize that there still is a Steeler Way.
It is indefensible.
I really wanted to puke reading Ed Bouchette’s article about Vick and his year so far. It seemed Ed thought he didn’t get enough of a chance. He seems to think with another year to learn the system he might just do better.
Well, he won’t.
Michael Vick was never an NFL caliber quarterback, even in his prime. He has a spaghetti arm with real accuracy problems. He has no pocket presence. He lacks all the intangibles a quarterback is supposed to have. The only thing he has ever been able to do is improvise when a play breaks down and that was when he was younger. He can’t carry out any kind of game plan. You can’t game plan for every play breaking down.
So, NO he wouldn’t be getting any better.
But that’s not the biggest reason to get the ex-felon off our team.
Michael Vick is an albatross. He drags down every team he’s ever played with. It’s because his karma debt is colossal.
I and MANY OTHERS want him off OUR TEAM!!! This has gone on way too long. It’s been like some waking nightmare.
Why is his Karma so bad?
This is a person of the lowest moral character. He’s admitted to (and has spent NO time in prison for) killing 6 to 8 dogs with his own hands.
Now, let that sink in for a moment. He killed one. It must have been just swell as far as he was concerned because he decided to do it again.
So, much so that he had equipment around to do it over and again. Drowning pools. Batteries with jumper cables for electrocutions. Shovels for bludgeoning. A dog gallows.
Yes. they were killing dogs so often by hanging them, alone, they had to construct a place to do it.
Let’s just go through the process of killing one dog. First he had to chose a dog to kill. Dogs that underperformed in trials are routinely killed, so that part is easy. Now, he has to get some to help holding down the dog will he slips the garrote wire or whatever he used over the dogs neck. Then they have to carry the dog to where they plan to kill it. The dogs probably struggling by this time but that’s no big deal. Two full grown men are going to make sure they get their killing done. Then they attach the dog to the gallows hanging it by it’s neck. So, I guess this is when the real entertaining part of the action happened for them. They get to stand around, give high fives, partake of whatever intoxicants one does when one has successfully killed yet another innocent animal while watching it struggle in pain, unable to understand why it was dying at the hands of those it considered it’s master.
But killing one wasn’t enough for him.
He has admitted to doing this, the torturing to death of HIS dogs, 6 to 8 times.
Think about that. He thought so little about the torturing to death of animals with his own hands that he can’t remember whether it was 6 or 8.
It disgusts me every time I think of him and I am tired of being disgusted.
This is not the type of person I would EVER associate with. This is not the type of person I would EVER want representing my sports franchise or city.
I can’t believe the Rooney Family who I have long admired could put a LARGE PORTION of the Steelers faithful through another year of this.
It is time to end this nightmare.
It is TIME TO END THIS HORRIBLE AND SHAMEFUL chapter of Pittsburgh Steelers history.
