Few NFL stars have shown as much resolve and indomitable spirit as Pennington in his career. The quarterback is the only player in NFL history to win two Comeback Player of the Year awards. He overcame adversity when he suffered serious rotator cuff damage. But he came back in style and achieved recognition.
Then he earned the respect of his peers when he transformed Miami’s fortunes in 2008. After the worst losing season in their history, they bounced back and went 11-5. Pennington played a crucial role with his consistency. Some people believe he should have even won the MVP award (via Bleacher Report).
