Prison Inmate to Prolific Passer

Micheal Vick sat in a prison cell about two years ago.  His career as a football player seemed over, if not in jeopardy.  His crime left him in disgrace in front of an unforgiving football audience and all of America.  Two years later, he is the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles.  His last game was a career night as he threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns.   He also ran for two touchdowns. 

His ability to scramble was always evident but now he is a different quarterback, able to stay in the pocket and make pinpoint throws to his wide receivers.  He is even being compared to Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young.  Mistakes don't have to stop you from doing great things in life or making a comeback.  What do you think you will be doing in two years (stats courtesy of, picture courtesy of )?

  1. I'm not football fan, and I am a dog lover. lol So I was pretty pissed when I heard this guy would be representing Philly. But, I gotta admit, he's winning me over. ;) He seems full of life, and determined to turn his life around. Gotta admire and respect that.
