Michael Dwayne Vick (born June 26, 1980) is a professional American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. He previously played for the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before serving 18 months in prison for his involvement in an illegal dog fighting ring.
Gruesome details involving abuse, torture and execution of under-performing dogs galvanized animal rights activists and expressions of public outrage. Vick and several others were subsequently indicted on both federal and Virginia felony charges related to the operation.
When he hopes for a peaceful death at a factory that makes protein shakes from dogs in "The Woof of Wall Street", Brian sees Michael Vick enter the processing room, followed by Eli Manning, who notes that he is a real idiot psychopath, as a subtitle appears and notes that it really isn't true, but the episode was written by New England Patriots fans.
