SI Players NFL Poll
[Based on a survey of 278 NFL players]
Would you let your child wear a Michael Vick jersey?
Yes....54%
No.....46%
FAST FACTS: The poll was done after Aug. 24, when Vick pleaded guilty to operating an interstate dogfighting ring, but before last week's news that he had tested positive for marijuana.... Nearly 63% of respondents age 24 and younger said, "Yes."... Two thirds of quarterbacks said, "No."... Vick, the only NFL QB to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season, has been suspended indefinitely by the league; he will be sentenced on the criminal charges on Dec. 10.... The NFL and Reebok have quit selling Vick jerseys.
