    Everybody gets a second chance. Michael Vick should get one too.

    there have been a few people come out and say, 'Vick deserves a 2nd chance'. I'm having a hard time coming up with an argument as to why Vick DOESN'T deserve a 2nd chance.

    I mean, seriously, if Goodell is considering NOT letting Vick back in the league, what's his basis? The court of law gave him his debt to pay and he has paid it. He should now be able to get on with his life. If he screws up AGAIN somehow, then I could see banning him for life or an extended period but this incident is over as far as I'm concerned.

    I could understand how the league might want to see him play it straight for a year or so.

    I'd really like to see him go out on his own, through his own heart and donate his time and money to do good things for his community. I don't like the idea of him having to be approached to do something...I'd like to see him do it on his own...

    While i do want him to come back all Goodell has to do is look in his little rule book, find gambling and BAM he doesnt come back.

    2nd chances is what it's all about... we all deserve a 2nd chance. Let's hope he does things right, he needs to kick his drug addiction that's for sure.

    Looking at Brohm and Flynn, I wouldn't mind to give him a try.

    Vick definitely deserves a second chance and I would LOVE for him to come back to Atlanta, if nothing more than a capable backup.

    That said, I know he's not coming back here, and I hope he goes somewhere where he has a chance to start. For some reason I see Minnesota going after him if this whole Favre thing doesn't work out.
