Vick makes a deal

Looks like at least a year and a half for Michael Vick:

RICHMOND, Va. - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has accepted a plea deal — and a likely prison sentence — to avoid additional federal charges related to a professional dogfighting operation, one of Vick's attorneys said, the Virginian-Pilot, ESPN and Fox News reported Monday.

Vick will enter a guilty plea to the felony conspiracy charge next Monday at 10:30 a.m. ET, said Lawrence Woodward, one of Vick's defense attorneys, the Virginian-Pilot reported.

Vick's sentence will be determined by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson, but a 18- to 36-month sentence was recommended.

Six years ago, my San Diego Chargers held the first pick in the draft. Everyone expected them to take Vick, but they traded away that first pick to draft this guy:

And Atlanta got stuck with this criminal:

And everyone in San Diego says...THANK YOU, GOD!

Thank you Lord, for giving us LaDainian Tomlinson
