Michal Vick: From jail to hailed

There was no way Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was going to win Most Valuable Player this season.

But Vick won't leave the postseason award banquets empty handed as he was voted Comeback Player of the Year by the Associated Press.

Vick got 29.5 of a possible 50 votes to prevail in a landslide over runnerup Mike Williams, the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver. Williams got 8 votes.

Vick is the first person to win the award after being imprisoned. Vick spent 22 months in jail for operating a dogfighting ring.
