Michael Vick Named NFL Comeback Player of the Year

By Bryn Swartz

As expected, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick ran away with the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award.

Vick received 29.5 of a possible 50 votes. In the process, he beat out such players as Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, Minnesota Vikings linebacker EJ Henderson, Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams.

Vick wasn’t even supposed to start this season. He replaced an injured Kevin Kolb in game one and never looked back.

For the season, he threw 21 touchdowns against only six interceptions, and rushed 100 times for 676 yards and nine touchdowns. He led the Eagles to their first division title in four seasons and earned the franchise tag, which will keep him an Eagle for at least one more season.
