PENNINGTON WINS SECOND COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD
Though Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington might not win the MVP award, he’ll have a consolation prize. His second Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year award. Pennington, who started all 16 games in his first year with the Dolphins after starting only eight in 2007 with the Jets, received 19 of 50 votes. Pennington also won the award in 2006, a year after playing in only three games. Titans quarterback Kerry Collins and Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme received six votes. Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner, Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin, and Buccaneers receiver Antonio Bryant earned four votes each. Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter received three votes, and one vote each went to Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, Steelers safety Ryan Clark, and Ravens tackle Willie Anderson.
