One week after suffering a concussion in a rough-and-tumble loss to the Falcons, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick broke his right hand on what he considered a late hit in Philadelphia's 29-16 loss to the rival New York Giants.

Karma is a wonderful thing.

Eagles fans embrace the dog killer because 97.65% of them would kill a dog if given half-a-chance.

Yep. I didn’t want either team to win but Vick is probably the only player I ever wanted to see visited by divine justice on the field.

My dog was slightly pleased. He thought after the concussion last week, maybe he’d get his skull crushed this game.

I realize this is not a popular position, but Michael Vick was tried and convicted and sentenced for his crimes in a Court of Law, and served real time in an actual prison as a result.

Like it or not, at some point this man deserves credit for paying the penalty and from what I have seen of him, actually repented of his crimes. It would be refreshing to see that sentiment expressed on a site that professes to be filled with the Spirit of Christianity...

Imho, his presence in the NFL is a shame and an embarrassment. The NFL should not allow anyone with a criminal record to play.

If he’s unable to perform due to his injury, maybe the coach should electrocute him.

People who never do the crime should deserve more credit than those who “pay the penalty” for their crime. We Christians will let God judge him, we’re just asking that it happen rather sooner than planned.

Once upon a time even Ocho’s skanky TV show last year would have gotten a player booted.

Many fine upstanding citizens weep into their hankies over the mistreatment of a canine; which I agree, is undoubtedly a crime and a shame.

But I feel confident that MOST of these people, if approached with a request to not only work against cruelty to animals, but to also campaign against the abortion industry and save innocent babies from being murdered in their mother’s womb, they would spit in your face! That’s why I take all the animal rights malarkey with about ten pounds of salt!

The animal rights wacko’s are that kind of nuts, but cruelty to animals like this is simply stupid. No doubt that abortion is ten million times worse.

I forgive him. But I can't speak for all other dog lovers.

Michael should be most worried about those in the NFL.

And there seems to be quite a number of em.

I said I forgive Vick.

But if some other dog lover who happens to work for the NFL as a defensive end doesn't I won't lose any sleep, either.

Dear Bean Counter,

Re our “Spirit of Christianity”: We let him live, which is more than he did for the animals helpless in his presence.

Re his “repentance”: He didn’t have any. Go back and look at that tape again.

There are some real heroes who could use your encouragement these days; please don’t waste your sympathy on Michael Vick.

Little people just cannot forgive even though Vick has paid his debt to society and is continuing to do dog related community service.

One reason some criminals reoffend is because no one will give them a second chance and hire them.

If you believe no one should be given a second chance, then don’t bother complaining when crime rates go up.

There, but for the Grace of God....

I happen to agree. Vick is a pathetic piece of garbage and so are each of his fans who support him.

Maybe God is “working up to it”. Let’s wait and see what body part is injured next. Karma is great.

This is the core of the problem. People get forgiven for things that are unforgivable. It always come back to bite us in the butt...and NO WE SHOULD NEVER LET IT GO, FORGIVE OR FORGET. history has a habit of repeating itself if one tends to “forget”. Vicks has no soul and is an evil being on this earth, of no value to anyone or anything, except his Eagle fans apparently.

I agree that as a Christian we should not rejoice that Vick was injured today.

If the guy has paid his dues and if he’s really turned his life around then good for him.
