The Pros and Cons of Michael Vick

Michael Vick was released today. Is he a fit in Oakland? I outline the pro and cons.

Pros:
-He is still a physical freak
-He can run the wildcat
-He is versatile
-He has nice arm strength
-He can be had for cheap
-Raiders don’t mind the PR circus

Cons:
-The collection of PETA members in the bay area will swarm the training facility.
-He may have lost a step or two
-He isn’t an accurate QB
-We don’t need another person to run the wildcat because we have McFadden and Bush
-He is a PR nightmare
-You might alienate a small part of your ticket buying fan base by signing him.

Conclusion:
I don’t think he is a good fit, not because of the off-the-field issues, but more because of the on-the-field ones. He just doesn’t have a place. Not even at backup QB. I do think he could make an impact on a team with a statue QB looking for someone to run the wildcat. The west coast would certainly be more favorable because the media circus would only last for a short time before the media were sent back home to the east coast. the down-side of that would be more of the fan-base would likely be pro animal rights. The Cowboys makes a lot of sense for a whole lot of reasons.

  • I'm a big fan of Jim Harbaugh. Don't care what he costs. It's not my $. However, I wouldn't give up anything higher than a 4th.

  • Is It Jim Harbaugh or Bust for the Oakland #Raiders in 2015? In short, yes. Yes, it is. http://t.co/k4Wzzb3g4z via @bleacherreport
