Can't support the Eagles anymore after they took Michael Vick onboard. Go Carolina Panthers!!!! This yankee transplant (15 years down here now) is finally totally converted!

In other news, I recently re-arranged the furniture in my living room. It was long overdue really.

I don't understand people who let this type of stuff divide them from teams. It's a game, and if the dude produces wins, that's all that matters.

There's only slightly better than 50% chance that he can lead his team to wins if he is the starter. At least according to his career thus far.

I'm interested to see how he'll be used.

He cant be thrown into the QB position just yet. I mean...first off he's a great athlete but he was never that good of a pocket passer/read the defense type guy. On top of that, being out of the game for two years, i can imagine how hard it will be to get back to being used to the speed of the game. He's gonna have to be able to check off, read Ds, etc.

I can see him being used in a wildcat type formation, slot receiver, etc. For now at least. He'd be great for some WR screens, smoke passes, wildcat run options, etc.

Happy to have another fellow Panthers fan on board.

Even though I think it would be out of character for the Panthers, I wouldnt get mad at them if they signed Vick. I'm personally pulling for him.

Heck, I hate the money they paid to Delhomme in the offseason but that dont mean i want to see him fail.

You'll be looking longingly back towards Philadelphia when Vick throws his first TD pass to win a game for them.
