For someone who was playing a year ago in a league that the NFL was ignoring/laughing at, I'd say this was a well deserved honor. Especially considering that many weren't sure he'd play again this year after what happened mid-season.
Brings to mind the fact that there were a number of players who seemed to come out of nowhere to surprise people this season (Maddox, Todd Heap, AJ Feeley, William Green, etc.). If there were a "Priest Holmes Award" (named for the guy who did what I described just last year), who'd get it?
Power flows to the one who knows how -- desire alone is not enough.

Well, where exactly was he that he had to come back? Most improved player's probably the closest thing I can think of for his story.
Sorry I was answering shockdown's Priest Holmes Award Question not saying he should be comeback player of the year. (Even though when I saw him play last year i thought he was nothing, boy i was wrong with that)

I shut off the game at the half, turned it on and saw 33 21 with 5:30 left, turned it off again, and turned it on with 3:00 to go and the crowd in a lather. BRING ON ANYONE AT THIS POINT, CUZ THE STEELERS CANNOT BE STOPPED!
Broncos Fans like me can only hope so since Peyton Manning graces this week's cover - the Jinx has already struck Jake Plummer (injured that weekend) & the KC Chiefs (unbeaten streak goes out the window) this year.......
