Will Michael Vick Ever Be Forgiven?

Vick On The Run

Michael Vick was signed to be a backup quarterback by the Pittsburgh Steelers. The anger and controversy began before the ink hit the paper. Vick has done his time for the misdeeds of his past. Will he ever be forgiven?

Vick gave the Steelers a sigh of relief, just a few days after signing with the team. Michael proved his skills as a quarterback haven’t diminished much. Taking over for Ben Roethlisberger, Vick completed 4 of 5 passes for 106 yards. On his first play under center, he completed a 63 yard bomb that put the Steelers into scoring range. Vick later took a sack and the offense sputtered.

Vick’s stellar play may have delighted the front office and some diehard Steelers fans, but what about the others? What has Michael Vick done to deserve the wrath of the entire spectrum of NFL fans, no matter where the journeyman winds up? Isn’t spending time behind bars enough?
