In Prison, Vick Dreamed of Playing for Chiefs

saw this on arrowhead pride...interesting

This story isn't quite what you think it is.

While in Leavenworth Federal Prison, Michael Vick watched NFL games whenever he could. Because Leavenworth, KS is less than an our from Kansas City, the games on TV were always the Kansas City Chiefs.

Vick recently said that when he thought of playing football again, it was in red.

"When I imagined myself playing again, it was always for the Chiefs," Vick told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

I don't think the Chiefs would be interested in signing Vick. Hey, they've proven me wrong before but it doesn't exactly seem like a match made in heaven.

Next week, the Eagles will visit the Chiefs in their third preseason games 15 months since Vick left Leavenworth Federal Prison.

"There will definitely be a moment of reflection," Vick said. "I think I'll be thinking about how I always hoped I would get that second chance and prayed every time that I was watching those games that I would be allowed to play again."

Vick is needless drama.

There are other (better) options available to fill the role of a veteran back-up QB.

nope, 2 years later i still haven't let it go. vick can burn in hell, and i hope someone drowns him when he's done playing. as has been pointed out, he would still be fighting dogs had he not got caught. i don't go around hoping players get injured, but i make an exception for this piece of crap. the sooner someone ends his career, the happier i'll be.

Geno Smith, backed up by Alex Smith, backed up by 4th round rookie QB prospect to later be traded to a future team for their 2nd.

The story line would be that the Chiefs have two 1st overall picks as QBs. Alex Smith could end up somewhere that is starved for QBs like Jags or AZ tho.

On a side note, it would be interesting to see how many would turn cold on the Reid hire if he does bring Vick here. Rather it be Vick than Kolb....
I'm on the same page as you with Vick. Heck didn't he put up historic number vs. Washington a couple years ago?

I also like and agree with your idea of signing Vick and drafting Geno.

Actually Alex Smith would probably be a decent fit for Reids West Coast offense. Id be ok with him as a backup. Hes probably going to want to try and find a starting gig somewhere though.

I'd feel the same way too if he hadn't got caught, served time, and been a 'model citizen' since. Look, there are many people out there perpetuating these crimes and will face NO punishment or won't serve jail time. Vick did and brought a high profile face to a terrible and tragic problem. I'm grateful that he was caught and awareness of the crimes of animal abuse was raised by him if nothing else.

Where do you think that will happen? I can't imagine the JETS trying to sell him as the answer to their QB woes, but he is far less prone to stupid mistakes than Sanchize is. Maybe the Bucs go after him? Arizona?

I'm not going to say he can burn in hell but I'm not letting him off the hook either. Besides being a dog killer he's a criminal. There are so many laws that are broke when someone runs an illegal gambling/dog fighting ring that crosses state lines. And how does someone get back in the league after they are caught in an illegal interstate gambling ring? I can't support Mike Vick.

The only value Vick would have on our team would be a one-year starter if we sat our rookie. If he starts, he's not going to teach a rookie quarterback anything, and if he's the backup he's going to be a good teacher or mentor. Bring in as a backup someone who knows the game and can groom the rookie. In other words, Hasselbeck.
