Vince had his own issues between his ears

physical ability was never the issue

VY had Jeff Fisher who has been proven to bring out the worst of any QB.   Jeff Goff, Case Keenum, Nick Foles, etc...

Once VY got fed up and threw his shoulder pads, I honestly believe he was blackballed.

The Kaepernick issue is too deep to get into here.

I think the millionaires who own NFL teams are a lot like kids with marbles.  In a lot of respects they're childish, petty, immature and misguided but it's their marbles so whatever.

Vick, a convicted felon who abused animals, made a comeback but VY threw his pads and was blackballed. Cool story bro. 

I thought Vince was a great player. He had his chances with other teams like the Eagles and Green Bay. Hell, he even tried a comeback last year or maybe the year before. 

It’s like me saying Johnny was blackballed because he missed a few meetings and roughed up some chick. 

They met they enemy, and the enemy was themselves.

Apples and oranges.

I don’t believe I’ve ever criticized Johnny Manziel and you won’t see me start here.  I was a partier at his age too (& much older) but, of course, I didn’t possess his amazing talent or the curse of scrutiny that went with it.

His misfortune was the Cleveland freaking Browns- possibly the only thing in the NFL more toxic than Jeff Fisher.

Both VY and Manziel were screwed by circumstances and as fans we were much worse off because of it.

Meanwhile crap QBs still have jobs.

I've never criticized VY or Colt McCoy either (even though most Aggies hate them both).  Whatever issues VY had finally did him in, or at least outweighed his benefits he brought on the field.

So you think VY and Manziel both suffered the consequences of their own mistakes, while I believe they both suffered the consequences of being tied to two of the most toxic entities in the NFL.  Yeah, Andy Reid, an NFL renegade gave VY one more chance, much like he had Michael Vick but VY threw more picks withe Eagles than ever before.  So yeah, maybe in the narrow narrative of that particular opportunity he did suffer the consequences of his own mistake.  Every signing after that was a joke that lasted a minute.

I still say we as fans lost a lot when the NFL wrote them off.

Speaking of the NFL, my son and I are going to drown our semifinal sorrows by taking in the Browns-Ravens game tomorrow.  His first NFL game, and only my second.  

Since Baltimore is the only local team I, as a Dallas fan, can half stand (the other nearby options are the Redskins and Eagles - double shudder!) I’m kind of cheering for them to win and go to the playoffs.  Then again I’m also looking forward to seeing Baker play and hope he has a big day.

I kind of like the Ravens concept/Edgar Allen Poe tie in.
