Michael Vick Leads NFL Pro Bowl Voting

I guess NFL fans can easily forgive and forget.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, just a year and a half out of prison for his conviction surrounding dog fighting, is currently the leading vote-getter in fan balloting for the Pro Bowl.

From CNN:

Vick started the season as a backup to Kevin Kolb but has set the league on fire since becoming the starter. He’s averaging 249 yards passing and 52 rushing per game, and he has scored 21 touchdowns.

Vick, who served 18 months in federal prison and was vilified after being convicted on charges related to dogfighting, had 729,838 Pro Bowl votes as of Thursday morning. He leads the Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning, who’s having a rough season, by more than 38,000 votes and the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady by more than 100,000.

“I’ve made three Pro Bowls before, but this one would definitely mean more than the others,” Vick told The Press of Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Wednesday. “I’m just working as hard as I can to change things around.
