What is all the fuss over the Steelers signing Michael Vick? It was a great move. Now the Steelers have a quality backup to Ben Roethlisberger for their Super Bowl run.
Vick was convicted of financing a dog-fighting ring in 2007 when he was a superstar quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. He served 21 months in prison and 2 months after that under house arrest or home confinement.
After he served his time the NFL forgave him and the Philadelphia Eagles signed him in 2009. He became their starting quarterback in 2010. After having one of his best seasons he was named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year. After several injuries he was shipped off to the New York Jets last season as a backup. So the NFL could forgive, Philadelphia and New York can forgive, but Pittsburgh can’t?
