Michael Vick QB Philadelphia Eagles
Then came the lows. He had many controversies on and off the field, flipping off opposing fans and receiving a fine for it, as well as a few off the field incidents including a hidden compartment found on a water bottle that appeared to be for stashing marijuana, however, he said it was for hiding jewelry. The other famous incident was when a woman sued him for knowingly giving him herpes. He had apparently known of it because he went to clinics under the alias Ron Mexico to get treatment for it.
The Eagles mainly played Vick as a wildcat option his first year, while he sat behind Donovan McNabb and his successor, Kevin Kolb. In 2010 though, Kolb went down with a concussion, and Vick came in and played amazing and has since kept his starting job, outside of a injury that knocked him out for a few weeks. Despite missing the couple of weeks mid season, he is still listed high on everyone's MVP rankings, and leads all players in fan voting for the Pro Bowl this year. He's played so well, not just dogs are cheering for him, so is the judge that sentenced him to jail, saying:
"He's an example of how the system works. He’s having a terrific season, I’m very happy for him. I wish him the best of success.”
Now that he's back on the top of his career, here's hoping he stays there and continues to play lights out.
