Vick to Redskins Rumors Won’t Go Away

It looks like the Michael Vick rumors just won’t die.  Earlier in the week it was speculated that Vick had strong interest from the 49ers and the Redskins.  Well as we all know those rumors where quickly shot down as Vinny Cerrato insists there is no interest from the team.

We are now hearing that Vick to the Skins is building momentum per ESPN insider.  Of course right now these are just rumors but will this madness ever stop?  Listen, I know Vick has a ton of talent and is going to be a big asset to any team he ends up with but he just doesn’t belong in the burgundy and gold.  I am all for giving guys a second chance to prove they have changed and I think over time Vick will show us that he has learned from his mistakes.  The distraction alone could kill a team’s chemistry and moral.  Not to mention we still don’t know how long he will be suspended for.  It could be up to week 8, do we really want to take that big of risk for a guy who may miss half the season?

In the midst of all this sits Jason Campbell, a true professional.  I admit I have had my doubts about Campbell and wanted him benched more than a couple times just like the rest of you.  This guy has shown what type of character and class NFL players are supposed to have.  From the Cutler situation to the Vick speculation Campbell has stayed strong.  Not once have I heard hime speak out against the organization or the team.  This is the type of quarterback I want to root for and who I want running my team.  He may not have all the physical tools yet but he has proven to me that he is a lot tougher than I ever thought.

    Vick can still play!!!!

    The ultimate goal in professional football is to win and win the Super Bowl. The question is “can the Redskins win the brass ring with Jason Campbell?” Unfortunately the answer is “NO”. Can the Skins win with Vick? Maybe. They stand a greater chance with Vick that Campbell.

    Look back five years and you don’t like the results and you don’t change something. Guess what your next five years is going to look like.

    Jim I agree with you I too think he has a lot of game left in him. I just don’t think he is the best fit for our team. It is tempting to think of what he can do but lets wait a couple years to see if hes still around.

    To the Eagles, not Skins

    I cannot think of a better football team for Vick. Eagle fans get big thrills from cruelty so he will just fit right in.

    Hating the Eagles will be so easy this year haha
