Philadelphia Magazine gives Mike Vick the lengthy profile treatment in which they examine the guy’s life off the field and barely touch on anything that really takes place in the game of football.
It’s not bad per se, just not really football related at all. That’s the only point I’m trying to make.
The premise is basically that Mike Vick is a stoic guy who is tough to get a read on in all aspects of his life. You want him to show remorse for the dog fighting, you want him to show emotion on the football field, but you never really get it.
As I was reading the piece, I kept wanting there to be an “Aha!” moment, where Vick finally breaks down and shows something. You don’t really get it, but you do get an interesting glimpse into Vick in one-on-one settings.
My favorite fact learned, that Vick and his people are “considering a graphic novel, starring a superhero version of … Michael Vick.”
