    Is there any player in the history of the NFL that had a bigger impact than Mike Vick

    Back in the early/mid 2000's, this dude was the man. People all over the country were wearing his jersey, even in Alaska! He was like a real life superman doing things that seemed physically impossible. His reign at the top wasn't very long, but when he was on, he was fccking on!

    I can't think of a single player in the games history that had a similar impact nationwide.

    Anyone know of any other players?

    I think you mean popularity, not impact.

    Yes he inspired a different style of quarterback but what has any of those small scrambling types ever won?

    He inspired a bunch of young black kids to try to be running QBs and they did good in college but now working at Home Depot

    So...yes big impact on Home Depot stock value

    What he did to those dogs is unforgivable. To electrocute, beat and shoot a pet that just wants love from their owner is barbaric and not the actions of a good man.

    As to the original question, in my lifetime you could make a case for Vick being most influential but I'm going with LT, Deion and Reggie White.

    LT changed how LB's were used. Deion was the epitome of a shut down corner who cut the field in 1/2 for opposition. Add in his ability to go for 6 anytime he touched ball too. Reggie was first big name to sign with a small market team over big market.

    Dog fighting is illegal and cruel. Just because hillbillies and criminals consider it a cultural thing, it doesn't make it ok. Vick isn't a good guy and is only loved by uncivilized losers like yourself.

    After Cunningham, before Vick.

    He played QB/RB/WR, hence the name SLASH.

    Vick sold more jerseys than Manning and Brady combined for a short time. Most people these days didn't have a clue that happened.
