Michael Vick named AP Comeback Player of the Year

DALLAS -- In perhaps the least surprising news of Super Bowl week, Michael Vick won the AP Comeback Player of the Year award.

That's following a season in which he became just the second player in NFL history to throw for 3,000 yards, rush for 500 yards and still records a passer rating of 100-or-more in a single season.

On the season, Vick passed for 3,018 yards, 21 touchdowns (to six interceptions), a 100.2 passer rating while completing 62.6 percent of his passes. He also rushed for 676 yards and nine touchdowns.

The interesting thing about Vick is that he wasn't necessarily taken out of football the year prior to winning the award. On the contrary -- he simply wasn't a starter for the Eagles in 2009. But considering that two years prior he'd be in jail, it's nothing short of a miracle that he's come this far and returned to dominance on the football field.

There will be ample people who believe that Vick's past makes him unworthy of winning anything, but because of where he bottomed out and the level of play he was able to return to, it's impossible not to consider his story a truly remarkable comeback.

In a year where the only other possible candidates for the award were Wes Welker, E.J. Henderson and Mike Williams, it's impossible not to hand Vick the hardware. While both of them have remarkable stories, Vick's re-ascent to NFL greatness is something that's rarely been witnessed in the history of the game.

Hey Jesus,  Mike was wrong for what he did.  I have seen people like you before you know the ones that show they are perfect but do wrong all the time.  This is america love it or leave it.  Mike has done alot wrong and he must live with it but he paid and continues to pay for what he has done.  Mike is still bankrupt and owes so much money that he will spend his entire NFL career trying to pay back what he owes but one thing is for sure he doesnt owe you anything.

That's right, Reputation:33. the message to our children should be: there's no such thing as rehabilitation. Commit a crime and you're done. No more second chances. You deserve nothing, ever. Sorry, but I do not believe that's a good message for 'our children'.
