When Michael Vick got reinstated back into the NFL, the only sound that you heard came from the doors slamming shut, and  followed by the sound of silence. It seemed like nobody would have anything to do with the former Falcon star.

The Eagles did open the door to the once Falcon, but he would have a limited role on the team.

At the end of the season, both Andy Reid and Donavan Mcnabb both said that Vick should be a starter, and yet, you still could can not hear any doors open to such an idea.

However, I did hear rumors and hopes from those who would like see Vick on their team, but no serious talk.

Then last week, I heard what one could assume to be cry of despairation.  He admitted that he did give his full effort to his former team the Atlanta Falcons. At first, I thought he just took a gun to his head and killled his NFL career.

Such a statement could be equal to telling a new employer that I got fire for not putting a my full effort into my job. In other words telling the truth.

But in Vick's case, did he tell the truth?

I have no answer to the above question, but I what I do know, he did not put himself on solid standing in with former teammates and new teammates.  Nobody wants to be sold short and especialy your teammates.

Where can I comment?
