Dogs everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief. Now that he is out of jail Michael Vick has something to occupy his dog-torturing time -- football.

Many are outraged that the Philadelphia Eagles signed him. What do you expect? Teams want talent. I think at one point the Bengals were looking at Charles Manson as a backup QB because he's good at coordinating people under stressful situations.

Vick better be careful though, if the team loses one game while he is starting, he will be put down or at least chained to a fence for 3 days in the scorching sun.

Bottom line, Vick's paid his debt to society. Yes, he practiced killing and torture and violated the code of conduct he was sworn to uphold. That doesn't make him a monster. That makes him Dick Cheney.

Paul Mecurio is the host of Got No Game with Paul Mecurio, a new web series on HBOSports.com which tackles the world of sports with a comical look at the compelling stories and outrageous events away from the field through original sketches and one-on-one interviews.
