Comparing the two is pointless. But if you must, look at it this way: Stallworth made ONE bad decision - to drive. Vick repeatedly and intentionally engaged in the torture of countless dogs, and contributed to the ability of others to do it as well. You're comparing a single mistake to repeated acts of willful sadism.
I think he's paid his price in terms of imprisonment - but I think he's still got a lot of work to do in terms of raising awareness about how cowardly and s**tfully ignorant dog fighting is. And if he wants to be around dogs - there's plenty in the shelters that need attention.
That said - I'm impressed with him as a football player. I think we do have a shot at the big dance.
