Are the St. Louis Rams the Destination for Michael Vick?

vick

I think it is.

The St. Louis Rams need a play-maker. They can’t always count on Steven Jackson. And Marc Bulger can’t be the guys. He has been a failure towards the team.

Yeah, he has been a starter since 2002, but guess what?

Marc Bulger has only started all 16 games in one season only once! Just one time Bulger has started all 16 games in a season. You really want that in your starter? For the past seven seasons, Bulger has been sacked well over 230 times!

Rumors were swirling around the block that the St. Louis Rams are interested in Michael Vick. See what I mean?

Michael Vick has to go to the Rams. They need a bigger play-maker, other than Steven Jackson. Jackson can not carry the load ALL THE TIME.

Torry Holt is gone. Isaac Bruce is gone. Az-Zahir Hakim is gone. Ricky Proehl is gone. Marshall Faulk is gone. Kurt Warner is gone.

The Rams aren’t what they used to be.

Their team needs to re-unite like the “Greatest Show on Turf” team they were.

And that kid, Michael Vick, can do that. Sure, the Rams won’t be an all-passing team because their play-makers on the receiving side aren’t there.

Vick can’t fall to San Francisco. Alex Smith or Shaun Hill will obviously end up there. He can’t fall to the Seahawks, Matt Hasselbeck or Seneca Wallace will be the main guy there. Raiders? Maybe, but why would they when they got Jeff Garcia and JaMarcus Russell?

Vick’s only choice is the St. Louis Rams. This is coming from a Colts/Rams fan (more of a Colts fan) and Vick is needed.

Michael Vick can lay off the load for Steven Jackson.

Marc Bulger won’t be needed, he has had poor play lately. Bulger has had a combined total of 22 touchdowns and 28 interceptions in his last two years.

Not what anybody would expect.

He is needed with St. Louis, as I have said many times in this article. Everyone in the sports world doubts his possibilities with any team. Are you kidding me? He has the best potential with a team in need of a QB.

You can say anything you want about Vick, but he deserves a shot with a team. Have you seen his abilities? Let’s take a look:

An arm nobody can deny.

The speed no one can be able to stop.

Michael Vick was also the first quarterback ever to have more than 2,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards. This is what you call, my friends, talent.

Talent.

Nobody had the talent Vick had. He has had four seasons in which he ran for more than 500 rushing yards. He also had one of the longest QB runs in the NFL history, especially the memorable one against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Now you can yap all you want about what he did with dog-fighting, but hey, everyone has done mistakes. People have done much much worse than what Vick did, and nothing happened to them.

Donte Stallworth killed a man. Leonard Little having a blood alcohol level, twice the limit and was driving 78 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour speed limit. Jared Allen was arrested three times for DUI. Jeramy Stevens was arrested for rape. And Chris Henry has been arrested FIVE TIMES!

You think Vick’s was worse?

I don’t think so.

Please give Vick a chance. How did Vick NOT learn his lesson? He has been in jail for more than 20 months for crying out loud!

Vick may not be a team player, but he can be a play-maker.

And that is all what the Rams need. For the team to go back towards their winning ways, Michael Vick is the answer. He can be the future.

People say he can’t perform well because he hasn’t played for two years. Well he has been playing football in jail and heck, he is only 28 years old! A lot left in the tank, could play for ten or eleven more years!

Then you say he isn’t good in passing. Well sure, he does a 75.7 rating, but he can WIN GAMES FOR YOU! Look at Peyton Manning or Dan Marino, they had all the stats but aren’t the type of playoff-type guys that can win games for you.

Vick can destroy on pass and running, don’t get me wrong. You have to believe that. And with Vick scrambling and passing around, that could leave some room for Steven Jackson to run over defenses when the defense is already tired with chasing after Mike Vick.

And at least he isn’t one of those quarterbacks who have more interceptions than touchdowns in their career. How can you say Vick is a bad quarterback?

Take a look at this: Compare Vick towards Vince Young. Let’s take a look at the touchdowns, interceptions, and passer rating:

Michael Vick: 71 touchdowns and 52 interceptions, 75.7 rating

Vince Young: 22 touchdowns and 32 interceptions, 68.8 rating

So many of you say that Young is a GOOD quarterback and say Vick is bad. Explain to me why? That’s just unacceptable there. Nobody talks about Young being a bad quarterback. It’s just stupid. Just plain stupid.

Vick can turn around this Rams team, and he will. He will. Believe me. Once Roger Goodell reinstates Vick, there will be a team looking for Vick. It may not be the Rams, which looks like the best destination, but there will be a team looking for Vick.

It won’t matter what team he’ll be playing on or what league he’ll be playing in. He will make a difference towards the squad.

And like Barack Obama, there will be change.
