According to

Mike Vick’s Philadelphia Eagles teammates showed him some love last week  voting to award him the Ed Block Courage Award.

The award is usually given to a player who has overcome a major injury or some other insurmountable difficulty to contribute to the team. Seems fitting considering all Vick has overcome in recent years, right? Well, PETA isn’t willing to roll over and play dead. They’ve been b*tching and barking about the award like it will bring dead dogs back to life:

“The Philadelphia Eagles fumbled when they gave Michael Vick the Ed Block Courage Award, which was named after a man who advocated in behalf of abused children,” PETA said in a statement. “Michael Vick should not be the person anyone points to as a model of sportsmanship, even though he has now exchanged dogs for touchdowns after serving time for extreme cruelty to animals. We wish him well in educating others, but this is not appropriate and does not mark a joyous moment in NFL history.”
