Dungy Still Feels Vick is on the Right Path

Former Bucs and Colts coach Tony Dungy is still a believer in Mike Vick, and despite the latest incident involving the QB, he feels that he is still on the right path:

Tony Dungy believes in mentoring and says it puts people on the right path-including his most famous pupil, Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick. On a national tour to promote his new book on mentoring, Dungy told The Associated Press on Monday that Vick still has a lot to learn about his image. Dungy says even if Vick isn’t doing something illegal, he still can better decisions to stay out of harm’s way.

Vick hosted a birthday party that ended with a shooting June 25 in Virginia Beach, Va. “The first thing people have to realize is that probation officers detail everything, and if he is off track even a little, they’re going to come down,” Dungy said. “They reviewed the situation that went on and moved forward.

The NFL did and moved forward. Michael would like to have all the negative publicity back, but it really wasn’t the type of thing that people have blown it into. But that’s the lesson for him.” Vick is on probation after serving an 18-month federal prison sentence that ended in May 2009 for dogfighting.

“Tony Dungy can go somewhere and if something happens, I’m not going to get singled out,” Dungy said. “Michael Vick goes some place and the same thing happens, and you’re the center of attention. You’re the focus. Now is it fair? Who knows? But that’s the bed you’ve made and you’ve got to sleep in it and be prepared for that. That’s the lesson he’s learned.”

    I guess you just couldn’t find a thing to write about. I would like an update on Jeremy Greene, seems as though no one wants to report on him, but then I guess that is understandable, due to the fact he was another espn. reporter who spent his time bashing Vick, and then would spend the remainder of his time watching kiddy porn.
