Another honor for Vick's comeback


Eagles quarterback Michael Vick picked up another Comeback Player of the Year award, this one from the Pro Football Weekly and the Professional Football Writers of America.

Vick previously was honored by The Sporting News in a vote of players, coaches and executives.

Asked to choose his best game of the season, Vick selected the playoff game against the Packers, despite three sacks, an interception on the final throw and a season-ending loss.

"Honestly, it might sound crazy, but (the Packers game) I just felt so much confidence," Vick told PFW. "I was just so in tune with everything: the protection, the blitz, where it was coming from, all my progressions, where everybody was supposed to be lined up.
