This was Vick's first time back in the Dome since 2011 when he played quarterback for Philadelphia, the team he signed with after his prison sentence for funding and operating -- and mostly lying about -- a dog-fighting operation in his home state of Virginia. But a lot of time has passed since then. Vick served his time and has handled himself with class and humility since.
When asked what he would say to the fans who haven't forgiven him, Vick said, "I think it's so important in your life -- you have to forgive. I'm just thankful for the people, a lot if people, here in this organization and in this city. I come and go all the time through the Atlanta airport. A lot of people have forgiven me and given me an opportunity to show a different side of myself. I'm just thankful I have a lot of support and that’s all I can ask for, and I appreciate those people with the utmost humility."
