Vick Gets Courage Award (?)

Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick, who joined the Eagles this season after serving 18 months in federal prison for his role in a dogfighting ring, has been named recipient of the team's Ed Block Courage Award.

Given annually, the award honors NFL players who exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. Recipients are selected in a vote by their teammates for team effort as well as individual performance. (ESPN)

It must be tough for Vick to bring in 1.6 million dollars, have a couple of TD's gift wrapped for him and for the most part do absolutely nothing positive on the field. But hey, he has courage.

Think this has anything to do with the Eagles trying to make him look good so other (desperate) teams may give something for him next year?

I hope so.

  1. Wow. Bizzarro World. Sham of an "award" if I've ever seen one. McNabb has been given the Johnny Unitas Accuracy Award and Asante Samuel has been tabbed to run a tackling clinic in Chester County this summmer. Reid's kids have been give the Hey-Look-At-Me-I-Haven't-Been-Busted-For-Meth-In-Ten-Months-And-Daddy-Still-Hasn't-Noticed Award.
    In other news, a hamburger tried to eat me today. And then it took a big dump.
