Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michale Vick is the most electrifying player in the NFL. Last year, Vick won the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year award. So far the 2011 season has been a rough one for Vick, getting knocked out of two games.

Vick has been taken shots by defenders and has been hit more than any QB in the league. Experts from ESPN analyst Merrill Hodge to New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees blame Vick's running for getting hit so much. But Vick has been hurt sitting in the pocket when he's been injured.

Is Vick being unfairly targeted by opposing teams, and why are people like Hodge and Brees hating on him? Where are the flags when he gets hit late? Does any of this have to do with his dogfighting days? Is racism playing a part in all of this? We'll debate this issue.
