In this morning’s Tribune, Fred Mitchell states that some fans may have been “anxious” when it was reported that Michael Vick, a.k.a. Ron Mexico, was spotted in O’Hare airport. I hope Mitchell means that only the fans that own and love dogs were anxious, because I can’t see of any fan actually wanting Vick as the Bears’ backup quarterback.
With more time, I’d go into the reasons, but basically it’s because after all the early-career Vick hype is cast aside, he’s not a good quarterback. Feel free to read Dan Pompei’s take as well.
By the way, as we all know by now, Vick wasn’t in Chicago yesterday to talk to the Bears. But it was a scare, since great Lovie Smith friend Tony Dungy is on a mission to get some team to sign poor Ron Mexico, the man that needs a second chance to make millions more than anyone else, apparently.
