Vick Cap Analysis

The contract structure agreed to by Vick and the Eagles seems to be mutually beneficial.

My Head Is Spinning

Great for the offense, offensive for animal lovers... I'm torn.

Rare Risk

If he can be utilized as a potent weapon for this team, the talk will shift from morality to mobility.

Eagles Fit Vick

The Birds got what Vick needs, and they play in Philly, a town with a history of embracing the hardscrabble black athlete.

Tough Landing Spot

If Vick's looking for that hard edge and an environment that will neither bend nor break, Philly's just the place he's looking for.

Vick Got Lucky

When the worlds of sports and animal-rights activism collide at the team's headquarters in South Philadelphia on Friday, it's clear the Eagles will be prepared.

PETA Clips Birds

Eagles fans can do is cross their fingers and hope that they won't ever have to explain to their sons and daughters what a "rape rack" is.

It Better Work

I've been the first to say that Vick deserves a chance to play, I just never thought it'd be in my town.

He's a Player, Not a QB

Vick is an option-read quarterback - no more, no less.

From Jail Bird to Eagle

The distractions will far outweigh any production he provides the team.

Ban Him For Life

The NFL has to, at some point, step in and determine where the line is going to be drawn about allowing players to be a part of the league.

He's Not a Murderer

Donte Stallworth drove with a buzz on, which makes him a criminal, of which the NFL has plenty already.

By Sean McCann | August 13, 2009; 3:33 PM ET | Comments (2)

Not Fit for the NFL

How as a fan am I supposed to root for a guy like Donte Stallworth again?

By Jason Brewer | August 13, 2009; 3:21 PM ET | Comments (0)

I'm Sorry

I will use my suspension to reflect, fulfill my obligations, and make a positive impact on the lives of those who look up to NFL players.

By Donte' Stallworth | August 13, 2009; 2:36 PM ET | Comments (6)

Enough Punishment

He has been punished by the justice system, he has been punished by the NFL and more importantly his conscious will be punishing him for the rest of his life.

By Robert Littal | August 13, 2009; 12:44 PM ET | Comments (5)

Suspension is Enough

There is a chasm of difference between murder and a tragic accident.

By Jason Maloni | August 13, 2009; 12:35 PM ET | Comments (0)

Ban Donte' For Life

Maybe a life would be saved if the NFL started banning players after it has been proven that they ended the life of another human being.

Who Vouches for This Man?

Tony Dungy is a good friend to have but that's not the same thing as an owner, standing in front of a bank of snapping cameras, with his hand out saying "I trust you."

By Jason Maloni | August 11, 2009; 12:56 PM ET | Comments (9)

Dungy or Young Jeezy?

A couple of weeks past being conditionally reinstated isn't the time to "keep it hood."

By H. Gore | August 11, 2009; 11:54 AM ET | Comments (8)

Vick Owes Dungy and All of Us

it's safe to say that when (not if) an NFL team takes a chance on Vick, he'll owe it entirely to the Dungy name behind him.

By Doug Farrar | August 11, 2009; 11:25 AM ET | Comments (3)

PETA Says No

We hope that Dungy will focus on the future of the NFL by backing our efforts to have the League add "cruelty to animals" to its personal-conduct policy

By Dan Shannon | August 11, 2009; 11:20 AM ET | Comments (23)

Just Crazy Enough To Work

On paper, the pairing of Tony Dungy and Michael Vick seems less likely than Shaq and Ben Stein starring in a mock buddy comedy to pitch cell phones.

By Dan Levy | August 11, 2009; 7:40 AM ET | Comments (1)

The NFL's Odd Couple

Strangest pair since Martin Luther King, Jr. and Civil War General Robert E. Lee or Saul Bellow and Josef Mengele.

By Michael Kun | August 11, 2009; 7:38 AM ET | Comments (6)

Is Dungy Too Loyal?

That Dungy agreed to mentor Vick doesn't say much about how far Vick had progressed, only that Dungy saw him as in need of help.

By Joe Baker | August 11, 2009; 7:09 AM ET | Comments (0)

It's Up to Vick

Tony Dungy can help Michael Vick, if Vick will let him.

By Nathan Whitaker | August 11, 2009; 7:04 AM ET | Comments (3)

Openess Yes, Fan Votes No

Let's leave important votes to the professionals -- those involved in voting the for Pro Football Hall of Fame are some of the best writers in the country.

By Dan Levy | August 9, 2009; 9:28 PM ET | Comments (1)

Remember Ozzie Smith

Experts know best but let's not forget the fans.
