The Eagles believe that Vick is sorry for what he did and are trusting him to stay a long his path of retribution, making appearances for the Humane Society, not getting into anymore trouble, & plain & simple just going out every sunday & playing football. That's what he signed him to do and that's what he will do or he'll be gone. Lurie will keep him on a short leash & if he does anything else he's gone. It's a risk the Eagles believe will pay off or they wouldn't have done it. He gives us a multitude of options on offense & will be a nightmare for Defensive Coordinators to deal with.
We all know what Vick has done & no one condones it or feels it can, in any way, be justified. It is terrible, but the truth is Vick has served his time and had a hard dose of the law. But the length of his jail sentence was more due too the fact he lied, a long with a few other things. He eventually admitted to what he has done & is now working to put an end to the barbarian acts that he was once a part of.
Vick Served 23 months - read some other cases about animal cruelty (this one & hit "browse cases" on the left for more) - a lot just get probation (from adopting a pet..for a few years). Vick is doing head & shoulders above what other offenders are doing.. Give him a break & let him play football.
Lurie's press conference - you can not tell me that after this you feel Vick hasn't turned his life around for the better
