Who do you think is going to win the MVP? I think the contenders (in order)are:

Peyton Manning
Adrian Peterson
Tom Brady
Aaron Rodgers
Von Miller

I am thinking it is going to Manning. I think his stats plus coming off multiple neck surgeries is just too big to ignore. AP is coming back from injury as well and is no doubt the most valuable player to his team in the NFL, but I just can't see giving the award to a player of a team who may not make the playoffs.

Nobody will pick Von Miller because he plays Defence and Manning is on the same team, but man is this guy going to be special for years to come. Hope somebody gives him their vote.

It's hard to pick between AP and Peyton. You can't ignore that he made the Bronco's an 11-3 team as of this post. Yes, AP is the best pure runner in the NFL and is the best RB this year.. but the MVP generally goes to the QB position because that's such an important position.

I would predict that the MVP goes to Peyton, and the Comeback Player of the Year goes to AP.

But really, it's a toss up.

Adrian Peterson is the best running back in the NFL.

Peyton should get the comeback player of the year because he you know actually came back! Peterson should get MVP. He only missed 3 games. That shouldn't count as a comeback.


MVP = Peterson
Comeback = Peyton

I can see that scenario if Minny manages to make the playoffs. I'd like to know how many MVPs came from teams who didn't make the playoffs? I don't think it happens very often.

I believe AP deserves the MVP also seeing he has the team with a high school qb in playoff contention. People seem to forget the Broncos made the playoffs last year with Tim Tebow as a qb, granted he has them as a better team but he is not the sole reason they are winning.

But as was stated a RB very seldom gets the MVP, its all about the glamor of the QB. I don't give much thought to the MVP because how many times is it actually the Most Valuable Player to their team actually wins it.

I also disagree with Kevin when he says AP shouldn't be in the talk of comeback player of the year, because the injury he had would sideline a normal player a full year not 5 months.

AP gets the nod. It is a lock if MN backs into the playoffs. But he will most likley get it anyway.

I think JJ Watt needs to be in the conversation as well..


But my vote would be AP.. he is more important to his team than Manning to the Bronco's. Most valuable player.

See, that is a great point. Valuable is the key word.. but in what context? Valuable to the player's respective team? AP is by far more valuable to the Vikings than Peyton is to the Broncos. Or is it most valuable player to the league for that year? I've viewed the MVP award as the later. Which was why I was ok with Peyton winning it back in the mid-2000s when Culpepper was having a monster year (to be fair, so did Peyton).

Tom Brady. Though they didn't win the game, just look at what he did against San Francisco. In better conditions, it's easily their game.
