I am one pissed off little girl right about now! As I was getting ready to shut the computer down I saw this headline “Vick to the Steelers?” on http://www.MSNBC.com. Seriously? Really, Michael Vick, hater of animals, king of the professional dog fighting realm, to play for the Steelers? HELL NO!
I love the Steelers and one of the biggest reasons I have stayed a Steelers fan since what’s his name turned me onto them is the Rooney family and the tradition of bringing a class act to the field, each and everytime. I miss the days of Coach Cowher jutting out his jaw (brings a tear to my eyes just remembering all of those memories) and have handled the adjustment of Tomlin coming in as coach ( he’s a talented coach but I had my reservations at first). It was touch and go for a bit but Tomlin is my coach and I love what he has done with the team (hello number 6 Super Bowl win).
But this article (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/07/28/vick-to-the-steelers/) just bothers me. Makes me want to fly up to NYC and give the author a what for tongue lashing. The Steelers have had hiccups with their players but I have yet to see the DUI, skirt chasing, bad boy behavior cause I be an NFL Playa and don’t want that to start.
Vick doesn’t fit with the organization, he runs to much instead of passing (what NFL QBs are supposed to do and yes, that is why my boy Vince Young, Hook Em Horns, will probably not ever be starting QB for the Titans again. The NFL’s MO for QBs is to pass, stay in the pocket and make the plays that way, run only when it is the only viable option. Vick is a runner and that doesn’t mesh with the Steelers’ style. Thanks to the boy for pointing out the difference in NFL QBs and college QBs.
As for my future husband, Rothlisberger (wow, I forgot I could call him that again since the boy and I are no longer. . .) I have high doubts in the woman who has sued him (in civil court) stating that he raped her, last year, oh and there was no police report made. Maybe it is just me, but if I was ever raped (God, please don’t let me ever have to go through that) I would go running to the police, no matter who said that I shouldn’t or questioned me. So, I tend to question her motives. . .
Okay, I have to go and calm down now. I am all fired up! Is it football season yet???????
