And he'd be on his best behaviour ... we should at least take a look. No harm in that.

His only positive in "round one" was his scrambling ability. He's now 2 years older, 2 years out of football shape, and his opponents are younger and faster. His one advantage is now gone IMO, while his major weakness (passing) can now by definition only be worse after 2 years off.

Broncos just not established enough to take on Vick. It would be too dangerous for Mcdaniels to try IMO. It would take a more established coach with a little more experience then mcdaniels to pull it off.

In college Mike could out throw a track star. I wouldn't mind if he was given an opportunity to compete.`

There's no way I would want Vick to come to Denver. The PR nightmare would be epic on top of the fact he's out of football shape and his skills are diminished.

I don't mind the PR hit .... Vick could do some whack-damage as a wildcatter. a la Kordell's "Slash" for Cowher's Steelers. Mike along with Moreno and Hillis, we would soon have the most dangerous backfield in the league, even with just Orton or Simms.

I'm all for bringing him in ... speed is speed, and he's probably in decent shape anyway. It's only June now ... three months of working out should be enough.


The downside is, 1) somebody will pay him, and 2) Our offense might be good enough without the wildcard Vick could be.

I just dont see McD doing the Wildcat offense. McD's big issue right now is getting the Broncos assimilated into his Spread Offense which is a complicated system. Why would he want to make it even more complicated by trying the Wildcat?

I see the Wildcat going the way of Buddy Ryan's 4-6 defense. Once defenses know how to build an effective game plan to stop the Wildcat, it's production will be compromised.

That being said, I think Vick is perfect for the Wildcat.

He sure is ... I got the feeling he's gonna burn us a time or two in black and silver the next few years.

We should bring him in to visit that would steal any thunder away from the Marshall story.

He would still be the fastest player on the field more often than not IMO

Lots of rumors in New Orleans that they're interested, and allegedly head coach Sean Payton is already meeting with Vick today.

With the amount of drama we've had here over the last 6 months, Vick would be the last player I would want to see in a Broncos uniform.

Heck, even before everything that has transpired over this offseason Vick would have been the last person I would ever want to see in a bronco's uniform!

I'd like the Hornheads to get rid of Tavaris and Farve and run the 'cat with Vick, Peterson and Sage.

Did they actually sign Farve? Geeze, I must have been living under a rock if that happened and I missed it?

I would be VERY suprised if this happened. They like us do NOT need more controversy and they already have one of the better QB's in the league.
