    So Mike Vick gets out of prison in July. Anybody willing to take him on here? Dogfighting conviction notwithstanding, he's otherwise an out-of-trouble guy. And a helluva player. Might be worth taking a shot as Schaub's backup. Or trade bait when he looks good in relief and/or preseason.

    Nah. No thanks.

    Too much baggage at this point that outweighs his production.

    Besides, he'd never pass the Bob McNair white glove test.

    Ron Mexico will head to the Raiders. Bank on it.

    No thanks.

    He'll hook on somewhere, though - no doubt.

    No............I'm sure he'll get his shot with the Raiders though.

    McNairs a Gamecock, which are trained to fight to the death just like pittbulls.

    He's not a good QB. Match that up with everything else and I'll pass.

    Didn't you see? The dog fighting ring here just got busted up. NO way Vick would want to come to H=town.

    Seriously though, I highly doubt mcnair would be cool with him. No way he gets a shot

    First and foremost the bold.

    Now, just like I thought they should do when they were together in Atlanta, stick Vick in at RB with Schaub at QB and imagine the havoc you could create. Not saying really use Vick as a RB anymore than Bush gets used as a RB, but the matchups and decision making for the other team are a nightmare. League minimum for a Reggie Bush who can also throw the ball--yeah, that is worth the chance.

    Won't happen though.

    If could play some rb then maybe, but his passing sucks.

    Seconded...

    Has he even been re-instated yet?




    On the other hand, our rushing game would be more productive... :whip:

    Seriously, has anyone ever seen Owen Daniels play QB, in college or anywhere? Maybe our answer is right here under our noses.

    Can't agree with you. I don't want him.

    There are better, easier ways to fix what ails the Texans than bringing Vick here.

    1. If we could get him for cheap. (Doubt it)
    2. If we convert him to RB. (Doubt it)
