Not from the perspective of the Bengals or the Bills, they're not at all.

What I found interesting is that the Bengals wanted him while they still had Carson Palmer starting.

Yeah, I thought that was interesting too. Because to hear Vick tell it they told him he'd start in Cincy

Cincy would have been a disaster for MV as Cincy has the worst head coach at any level of football. That wasnt what MV or the league needed or wanted.
Just curious - - because I don't know:

Is Jerry Faust still coaching?

LOL, I dont think he is. IMO Marvin Lewis makes him look like Knute Rockne. Lewis was a good D coordinator but a disaster as HC.

It appears Faust is now a motivational speaker (according to Wiki). I didnt know people needed to be motivated on how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Then don't reinstate him. It comes down to money and they know MV sells tickets and Godell over stepped here for money.

I'm not sure he's a disaster, he's just in Cinn. He would've fared much better had he gotten a better job. Lewis is in for a real long year.

If you put Lewis as HC in Pitt or NE those teams will be cellar dwellers within 2 years. He has some nice talent in Cincy but has screwed it up.

Where's the free market? You either reinstate Vick fully, allowing him to make his own decision like any other free agent, or you don't. I'd cry major foul if I were the Bills or the Bengals.
Michael Vick says Philadelphia Eagles were not his first choice - ESPN

NFL, Vick Deny He Was Steered To Eagles

So now we have a he said she said. Maybe GQ is twisting words to sell magazines, who knows.

Whatever. All I know is I hate the Eagles.

I suspect this is a backtrack by both sides even though I dont think any back track is needed. Vick just isnt bright enough to know that some things might be best left unsaid.

If you read the interview it makes you realize what a POS Vick still is in some regards -- he basically hand waves the whole killing dogs thing as a part of black culture and growing up poor or whatnot. I am not black but I have a tough time believing that drowning, fighting, and electrocuting dogs is part of any culture, black or otherwise

Still trying to figure out why he felt it necessary to go there.
