Taken from NFL.com---------------------------------

"Asked after practice Friday whom he would select if he had a vote, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback said, "You put me on the spot."

Then he added with a smile: "I would take ... myself."

Vick and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady are widely considered the top two candidates for the award, which has been won or shared by a quarterback 17 of the past 23 years.

Brady leads the NFL with a 109.9 passer rating. In his past nine games, he has thrown 21 touchdown passes and no interceptions. The Patriots (12-2) have won 11 of their past 12 games.

Vick's 103.6 passer rating is third-highest in the NFL and leads the NFC. He also has 613 rushing yards and has run for eight TDs -- more than all but nine NFL running backs.

Vick spent Christmas in 2007 and 2008 incarcerated at Leavenworth Penitentiary in Kansas while serving an 18-month sentence on federal charges of running an illegal dogfighting ring.

"I'm just blessed to be here," Vick said. "I spent two Christmases in Kansas, and that was by far the toughest thing I've had to do. Each and every year, I reflect on that, and I think it will always make the holiday season more gratifying.
Baldinger: No contest here
NFL Network analyst
Brian Baldinger believes there shouldn't even be a debate about the NFL MVP award. Michael Vick is the best player in the league. More ...

"(I'm) just thankful for a lot, thankful for the opportunity that I've been given, thankful for the blessings, and hopefully they'll continue to come."

The Eagles (10-4) would clinch the NFC East title Sunday with either a home win over the Minnesota Vikings (5-8) or a Packers victory over the New York Giants in Green Bay.

"We all know what's on the line," Vick said. "We know what's at stake. Like I say each and every week, every game is going to be a tough game. You have to go and play as hard as you can. You can't let up and you can't go into a game sure you're going to win. You have to earn it. That's our mentality and that's our mindset, and this week is no different."

you do realize, he did do it, right? unless he invents a time machine and prevents himself from being a total shithead for years until he was caught - and probably would have continued if he hadn't been caught - then yeah, it will be mentioned every time he is mentioned.

yeah, you can't talk about charles manson without that whole sharon tate nonsense coming up either. how annoying.

getting the opportunity to make millions playing a game is a privilege, not a right, and scumbags should be refused that privilege no matter how many crocodile tears they cry after getting caught. this shithead should have been banned for life and been forced to get a job flipping burgers for all i care, if only just as a warning to other shitheads out there that such behavior would not be tolerated. instead, bringing him back has only sent the message that you can get away with anything if you're rich and famous. fuck that and fuck him.

and they should all get bounced. do you know how many great players come up from college every year that don't get the chances these assholes get? .

bounce the assholes, draft new people. it's not that complicated.

rooting for someone you know is a shithead just because he's on your town's team just makes you a whore.

im sure there are mega talented college players that dont get a shot to make it in one of the professional football leagues. it would make sense that a multi billion dollar industry doesnt do its due dilligence on incoming players.

and there are plenty more every year, but the league makes more money from famous players, it's that simple. this isn't fucking rocket science. getting the most talented asshole to run up and down a field with a leather ball isn't anywhere near as important as audience draw and making the most money. that's what they do their due diligence on.
