There’s nothing that sports fans like more than a good comeback story, and nothing that the public enjoys more than a juicy scandal – and Michael Vick’s career trajectory includes a little bit of both. While the public may be preoccupied with some of the less than savory aspects of his history, he’s come storming back into the limelight lately for a reason more related to his athletic prowess than his off the field pursuits. Why, exactly? Well, in case you haven’t been keeping an eye on the goings on in the NFL, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is out for a while recovering from a knee injury. When Big Ben was carted off with a sprained MCL, Vick stepped into the game – and back into the public eye.

All eyes are on Michael Vick during the upcoming Steelers games to see how he’ll do, but let’s just take a minute to remember who exactly Michael Vick is. If you take a look at some of the tape from his past NFL games, and even his college games, it quickly becomes evident that Vick is positively superhuman. He motors down the field effortlessly, he dodges and darts around opponents like he has springs in his feet, and he manages to pull through in high stakes situations. Here are 10 of his most legendary plays – get ready to pick your jaw up off the floor.

Okay, fair warning – if you watch this clip of Michael Vick from college, you’ll get stuck watching it over and over again endlessly, trying to figure out how on earth someone can make a play like that. All the way back in 1999, Vick was playing for Virginia Tech in a game against James Madison University. Virginia was nearly at the endzone, so close that Vick could taste it. He ran the ball, and when a James Madison player started looking like he might sack the budding star, Vick assessed the situation and reacted. Did he dodge to the left? To the right? No – he literally front flipped over the guy and into the endzone.
