For 10 million, Vick better up his game and take the Eagles to at least the Divisional round of the Playoffs!

So nice for a dog murderer/torturer/electrocutor/drowner to take a pay cut. What a stand-up guy!

He's more of a standup guy than a drunk driver that mows down innocent people. Yet nobody cares. He was involved in dog fighting? Oh no! I'm sorry, but your dog isn't worth more than humans.

Not only is my dog worth more than humans, she's more intelligent than many "celebrities" today.
