Inappropriate? Philly Newspaper Calls Michael Vick "Top Dog"

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

It seems like Michael Vick is now all the way back. The Philadelphia Eagles named him the team's starting quarterback. A city tabloid reported the story with the headline: "Top Dog."

The Philadelphia Daily News' flippant reference to Vicks felony conviction for running a dog fighting ring is sure to outrage those who don't think Vick should be allowed back in the NFL. Animal lovers also might find it inappropriate and offensive.

Vick served 20 months in prison and is now working with the Humane Society to help educate children of the dangers of dog fighting.

He was a backup quarterback last season and began this year on the bench until starter Kevin Kolb went down with a concussion in the middle of the first game. Vick finished the game well, and was sensational in week two, leading the Eagles to victory.

Kolb was cleared to play for game 3, but Eagles coach Andy Reid said Tuesday he is sticking with Vick as his starter.
