Vick was a free agent after spending the last five seasons with the Phialdelphia Eagles. He will be reunited with Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who helped the quarterback have the best season of his career in Philadelphia in 2010. Vick was plagued by injuries the last three years and lost the starting job last year to Nick Foles.

I’m sure Vick will have plenty of “bonding time” with the owner when they are both in the same rehab classes.

Another team that will fail with Vick. Am glad my Bills get to play them twice.

the jets are willing to play an ex-con but not a man of faith?

and the NFL is ok with this? aren’t they afraid it’ll be too controversial?

Well, I’m sure that’ll go just dandy.

At least my Pack has a great QB, Aaron Rodgers.

The Jets released Marc Sanchez, terrible move.

As bad as Sanchez was, at least he wasn’t Vick.

I think Sanchez was done. I think he had physical skills, but...he was mentally weak, in my opinion. I thought that was why they did that whole Kabuki dance about “He’s still our number one quarterback” when they had that whole thing going on with Geno Smith. It was clear that once they said that, Sanchez was going to be broken.

I will be surprised if he ever does any better than a veteran backup somewhere. But you never know. Sometimes a change of scenery can do wonders with a guy like that.

He never seemed like a bad guy from what I could tell, but I doubt New York was the right place for him.

Your guys got a good linebacker in Spikes...he just wasn’t fitting in here at New England. I was sorry to see him go, but kind of expected it.

He’s a short, brittle turnover machine. Having said that, if he really is a backup, he’s still capable of having good games and winning a game or three.

The only thing that matters is what you can do on the field. For a neighbor I would pick Tebow, for a NFL GB I would put Vick on the field over Tebow. In the big boy world of sports, winning is the first, second, third, the only thing that matters, everything else is just irrelevant.

Ever since he came into the NFL, I have said that any team that thinks Michael Vick is the answer does not have a clue as to what is the fricking question.

At least when he was younger he was as entertaining as a high speed police chase on the evening news.

As a Jets hater, Go Jets! into the 20th Century!

It is not often one gets to watch a multi-million dollar enterprise commit suicide, hari kari and self immolation in one fell swoop.

If they let Vick be Vick, they will be fine. But they better have a backup.

Vick will probably be the backup unless Geno Smith completely falls apart.

The one thing I found disturbing with the whole Vick controversy was I felt that a lot of people had more sympathy for the plight of animals than people. I would not be far off in stating that Vick would have gotten less animosity from people if he had killed a couple of people and served his time. From a pure philosophical perspective, what is the real difference between dog fighting and deer hunting. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against deer hunting what so ever. I just don’t get people who shed a tear for a dog, not even their own, more than they would when they hear of some massacre of people somewhere in the world.

Although I think Sanchez is getting a bum rap (since I’d rather start him over Geno Smith or the Dog Executioner), I’m at the point where I’d never, ever draft a USC QB if I were an NFL GM. I can’t think of a USC QB who’s made an impact in the last couple of years. Carson Palmer never lived up to his alleged potential (although he played on mostly garbage teams), Matt Cassel proved why he only deserved 33 passes in college, Matt Leinart never progressed past being a spoiled frat boy, and now Sanchez is scrambling to find a third string job somewhere. The jury is out on Matt Barkley, but it’s safe to assume he’s not taking Nick Foles’ job.

The media eats their young in NY sports. They’re a vicious lot. Wouldn’t it be swell if they questioned the Usurper in the White House that way?

It’s hard not be wowed by Vick’s athleticism (which is fading quickly).

But in the end, aside from killing dogs, what makes Vick a lousy NFL QB is the fact that he’s left handed, much like our socialist “president”. Left handed QB’s require your best pass-blocking o-lineman to play on the right side instead of left to protect the QB’s blindside. That usually plays havoc on a running game. Not only that, left handed QB’s tend to be less accurate.

Here’s another one for ya:

Go Jets! And Take The Knicks and Islanders With You!

(I actively root against NY teams with a vengeance.)

Other than Steve Young, I can’t really think of a left handed QB who’s won squat. (Way too early for Google.)

The only real reason having a Lefty at QB can screw up your offense is if his backup is a Righty — at that point your offensive line is a mirror image of what your backup requires.

As for Lefties being “less accurate” — I don’t know where you’re coming from with that.

A lefty QB could screw everyone up, couldn't he?

He'd be handing the ball off to running backs with the other hand, right? And when he threw a pass, the ball would spin in the opposite direction. Fumbles and dropped passes...

I was a WR back in the day. The “opposite spin” is something you figure out in passing drills in the first 5 minutes. I wouldn’t think the RB’s would have any trouble with it either. We had a lefty underclass QB replace a senior midway thru the season. He threw a sweet ball. Ended up with a full-ride to Florida.

Switching back n forth in a game? Maybe there is an adjustment. But no more than the usual throwing touch.
