Phantom Son Syndrome


I predict Michael Vick’s comeback attempt will founder due to attitude problems (or more off-field issues).  Tony Dungy, the man who’s say-so got Vick back into the league, looks at him and sees his deceased troubled son, and wants to believe he can fix this one.  Sadly, I don’t think he can.

    Why don’t you think he can fix Vick? Just curious. I haven’t followed any of this enough to say anything either way. Is it something Vick has said in the past month?

    Just a feeling, really. There’s some circumstantial stuff, like: Philly ain’t the best town to stay out of trouble in, the Eagles ain’t a low-stress, low-drama team, Eagles fans aren’t going to be forgiving if he doesn’t perform well, this comeback seems to have been allowed on just one man’s say-so and I doubt that man’s ability to be objective in this situation, and the whole thing seems to be VERY dependent on the Vick-Dungy relationship.

    Vick has already been spotted drinking vodka at a local bar. Nothing wrong with that, per se, but it doesn’t suggest Vick’s quite got the right mindset. Apparently, Dungy called him up and told him he couldn’t do that anymore.

    I don’t think Vick’s going to tolerate Dungy telling him “you can’t do x” more than a few times, however well intentioned, and if/when that relationship goes south, Vick’s out there on his own again. In Philly.
