Let Us Begin the Michael Vick To Minnesota Rumors

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Now that we can be done with the Brett Favre rumors to Minnesota*, it's time to start floating around the Michael Vick to Minnesota rumors. I mean why not, the Vikings obviously want a quarterback with a better pedigree than Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson and Vick delivers this.

To me Minnesota now becomes the most logical fit. A team in contention that was willing to take on a new quarterback with risk all of season. They are in a smallish market so the backlash might be less. And most importantly he would make a difference on the team.

Just picture this for a second. In his prime Vick led the most dominating rushing attack in football. This came with miniature Warrick Dunn and Jerious Norwood. Now imagine Vick in the same backfield as Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor. This is what the Vikings were looking to get from Tarvaris when they drafted him as a poor man's Vick, but he hasn't even come close to living up to the hype.

Its time to start the Minnesota Vickings rumor mill.

*We probably can't be done with the rumors because it's Brett Favre, he doesn't want to retire, the rumors will go on and on my friend, cause it's the story that doesn't end...

Vick would not work in Minnesota. The fans and the powers that be hate any black players with issues on his resume and are quick to call for their heads. The fans dogged all of the following guys linked to football: Warren Moon, Randall Cunningham, Randy Moss, Dante Culpepper, Tavaris Jackson and Denny Green. They did love Cris Carter but not in public. And T. Jackson hasn't been given a fair shot to play QB on this team. How can you give a guy a job then take him out after only 2 games that were not his fault? Give the guy a shot and maybe he'll surprise everyone...how many QB's have had 4 TD games...not many.

I see New Orleans in Vick's future. That's a city where anything goes, so a little thing like dog fighting is not likely to raise eyebrows like it would in many other parts of the country. On top of that, Reggie Bush is gimpy, so Vick would work well as a doppelganger there.
