The NFL’s season kickoff isn’t going as planned, but plans don’t matter in the NFL

The gulf between the end of the previous season’s Super Bowl and the start of the new NFL season seems like an interminable one.

The Pittsburgh Steelers bring in Michael Vick

Due to an injury to backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski the Pittsburgh Steelers sign Michael Vick to a one year deal. This late in preseason this a great move, why do I say that?

He’s a backup near the end of his career. But because Vick...
