    Ed: Tomlin Wanted to Sign Vick With Steelers

    Maybe the Steelers OL didnt feel safe with a alleged rapist staring at their asses and asked Tomlin to find a replacement

    I don't think Vick would have stayed a backup to Big Ben and certainly does not have the talent to start over Ben. It would have been a 1 year thing at best. Vick went from doing time to earning a $100M contract over the past few years…I don't think Karma ever worked its magic if you believe in that sort of thing.

    I thought Tomlin was one of the top coaches. This makes me question my opinion.

    Sounds like Tomlin wanted to help Vick out and give him a back up job thinking he might have a hard time getting a starting job with such a tainted history but Ben's story killed the idea.

    If that's true it's a nice gesture.

    A rapist and a dog killer on the same team. Maybe, just maybe people would've hated the steelers more than us. Who am i kidding?

    Are you trying to say that raping somebody is worse than misplacing a cameraman? Pfffffffffffft [/idiot fan]
