BetUS.com understands that a Michael Vick acquisition dramatically changes a team's odds of winning a championship, even if it is simply division performance. 

Where will Vick end up playing this coming season?  This is a question that still lingers.

Michael Vick to Carolina?  Not so fast even if Coach John Fox has left things wide open.

"We're pretty set at quarterback. We like the guys we have. I wouldn't want to rule anything in or out, but we feel comfortable with where we are."

One scenario that would seem to have some basis in logic has Vick talking to the Seattle Seahawks (+210 to win the NFC West at BetUS.com), where one of his head coaches in Atlanta, Jim Mora Jr., has taken over for Mike Holmgren, according to BetUS.com betting analyst Charles Jay.

Another possibility is that Vick ends up playing for a desperate Vikings team.

"Minnesota's coach and owner had said they were not going to shop for Vick, but of course now the Vikings (+750 to win the NFC title at BetUS) may face real quarterback problems with Brett Favre not signing a contract and Tarvaris Jackson spraining his knee (although that's not going to keep him out for long)."

But the options are seemingly endless, and one of those options is that he ends up sitting out this season.

"Let me say right off that I would not be keen on the idea of signing Michael Vick," says Jay.  "From what I understand about his actions, he has shown some of the elements of a sociopathic personality, and I just doubt that would be the kind of person who would be selfless enough to lead a team to an NFL title. I know some people who have worked in the NFL recently, and I can tell you that all of them had said they wouldn't touch Vick, which is thought was kind of unusual, actually."
