Even after missing time due to injury, Michael Vick has to be the favorite to win the NFL's MVP Award, the Comeback Player of the Year Award and any other awards he may or may not qualify for.
Vick is putting together an absolutely masterful season and finally living up to all of the hype that followed him before his dogfighting indiscretions.
This season, Vick has been better than Tom Brady, better than Peyton Manning and remarkably better than Drew Brees and Brett Favre. Vick has finally developed accuracy and maturity in the pocket to accompany the strong arm and incomparable athletic ability that has always been his trademark.
Vick was a successful quarterback as a member of the Atlanta Falcons, and that was back when many scouts and analysts had serious doubts about his abilities as a pocket passer. Those doubts are gone, along with any doubt as to who the NFL's best player is.
Vick is the only player in the game who is a legitimate threat on every single play to find the end zone either on the ground or through the air. In fact, not only is Vick the best player in the NFL this season, but the 2010 version of Michael Vick is the most dangerous player to ever strap on a football helmet.
