Great catch on the first ball and then comes back on the 2nd ball for a 44 yard gain...nice!
Mendenhall look sgood as well...
Oh the wife, who is more of a dog lover than I am, and is from Philly, has just stated that no philly games will be televised in the Brinker house...
50 yard FG by Reed...
I don't understand what appears to be the majority feeling about Vick, based on the headlines and stuff in the Philly papers this morning.
I think 2 years in prison and losing however many millions by not playing and "community service" or whatever he is doing with the humane society constitutes serving his debt to society.
If he was participating in a cock fighting ring (not that kind of fighting or ring, Otis), nobody would care, but because everyone treats their own dogs like the messiah, he should spend life in prison? Isn't the purpose of prison to rehabilitate? How does society know if he has been rehabilitated if he isn't given a 2nd chance?
Release the hounds
The dog-fighting wasn't Mr. Mexico's first deplorable act. And like it or not, we segregate our perception of what's acceptable, with having hundreds of dogs rip each other to shreds and/or being electrocuted at one end of the continuum, and squashing a roach at the other, for instance. I for one don't have a problem with that, but I'm not a Buddhist. The thing I would ask is what kind of mindset it takes to engage in this kind of activity; the well-known serial correlation to animal cruelty notwithstanding, I see this less as an issue of Vick having made an "error" for which he needs feign "repentance," and more an issue of someone who is fundamentally fucked up and THEE leading candidate to go OJ ten, twenty years downstream. Dungy looked into his eyes with probably the same psychological acumen that Cowher looked into Zo's, and all the "give a brother a chance" stuff is fine, 'cept I'm not buying.
Vick just ain't good people.
