Epic Drop: Top 12 Reasons Michael Vick Surrendered Early

Your list is here, and it must be good, since it's more than ten and all.

It still astounds me, really, that a guy could fall this far this fast; I think it may be unprecedented in American sports history. Who else, really, was as big as he was, and self-destructed so unnecessarily? Sure, there were Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden, but that took years, and they were still capable athletes, even in the throes of addiction. There have been any number of shocking and career-ending injuries, but that really doesn't have the same feel as what Vick did to himself. OJ is the most obvious corollary from the terms of Media Circus, but Murderenthal was 20 years past athletic relevance when he went to town (allegedly).

In this, as in many other things, the only QB ever to run for 1,000 yards in a season... is unprecedented.
