The V-word

Somebody finally wrote what many of us have been thinking.  Jamie Dukes from the NFL network proposed that the Lions would benefit hugely from signing Mike Vick as soon as they're legally able to.  His point centers around the fact that Vick is instant offense (if he's in shape, which is no guarantee), he controls the ball which helps the defense, and he'd be a major draw.

Look, I'm a dog owner, and I think that what Vick did was absolutely reprehensible.  He deserves to rot and suffer for an extended period of time.  That said, I think everyone deserves a chance to recover from rock bottom.  Honestly, where else to do that than on the Lions?  It would justify our not drafting Stafford (although I'm personally torn on the Stafford decision), plus our o-line would look better by comparison if the d-line has prepare for a Vick-led offense.  He has a cannon for an arm, so CJ would love him.  Plus, CJ is the perfect WR for a slightly inaccurate QB anyways.  If nothing else, it should be worth a tryout, right?  The Lions are officially beggars in the NFL, and I'm pretty sure they can't afford to be choosers.  Right?
