Michael Vick's Redemption

Since returning to the league, Michael Vick has been heralded as a changed man. We take a look at how Vick has won people over during his second act.

  • Taking the field to "My Heart Will Go On" every game definitely helped
  • Rather than treat them inhumanely, he now works to improve the lives of Eagles fans
  • Refuses to hang out with friends from his old neighborhood if he knows they're going to shoot or kill something that night
  • Doesn't pull the ball down and try to run with it as much as he used to back when he killed dogs
  • Single-handedly responsible for eradicating the Baja Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out" from at least two NFL stadiums
  • Displayed genuine humility and heartfelt remorse after losing to the Bears
  • Donated a bunch of money to some needy cause or charity or whatever
  • Now only watches dogfights instead of actively hosting them and betting on them
