Vick-Would you want him as the BU QB on your team

Well, the NFL Commish has spoken.  Michael Vick is conditionally reinstated.  Two pre-season games, able to practice and work out with a team if signed.  6th game of the season we'll know more.  Yet the question is, would you want him this season, and perhaps more, as the back-up on your favorite NFL team?

In the Wildcat formation, he presents untold problems for the defense.  In the public relations arena, he could very well present untold problems for the team that signs him.  He has served his incarceration as dictated by the court system.  Robert Goodell wants to see the plan Michael lays out for his forseeable future.  Michael has Tony Dungy in his corner as a mentor and consultant.  And yet Michael lied to the owner of the Falcons.  And to the NFL Commish.  And I'll admit that Michael Vick is an incredible upgrade to almost all teams, for most loyal fans cringe if their back-up must take control of a game needed to win, or heaven forbid to finish out the season as a starter.

I, for one, don't care to see him with the Chiefs.  But the Panthers had to utilize Vinny, literally dragging him away from the early bird dinner specials.  Bill Parcells and the Dolphins are a possiblity.  Same with the free wallet of Daniel Snyder and the Redskins.  And let us not forget Al's Raiders.

And if you wouldn't want him on your team, would you wish him on your rivals ?
