    The love affari with Manning

    IT does appear that the latest MVP award has cemented the league's love affair with Peyton Manning.

    For the record, Manning had a great year on a 14-2 team, but there have been 14-2 teams before and there's been many better QB years. On the other hand Chris Johnson SET AN NFL RECORD FOR YARDS FROM SCRIMMAGE this yearand averaged 5.6 yards per carry on 358 carries with 50 receptions and STILL couldn't get an MVP award.

    What's even better is that Johnson didn't even get a single frickin vote for MVP. Regardless of his team's finish he had the greatest season by a RB or WR in the history of the league and STILL didn't get a single vote. Meanwhile Manning beat out Brees in voting 39.5 to 7.5 even though Brees actually had a better year and a far better QB rating.

    So to sum it up, the best year of any player this year was by Johnson a RB but he didn't get votes at all. Even fi we say that's cause he's a RB or cause his team didn't win, then how does Brees lose in a landslide to Manning when the Saints had a great record and Brees had a better year.

    Re: The love affari with Manning

    Even as a Colt fan, I have to admit that it seemed strange to me how the consensus was built for Manning this year.  It was a landslide victory, yet at no point did he have the best QB rating in the league.  Brees, Favre, and Rivers were better choices for most of the season.  But, as Patriot fans were wont to point out all those seasons they were pumping the absurd notion that Brady was better than Peyton: stats aren't everything.  All the fourth quarter come-backs were led by Manning, and he put up a great number of yards using Garcon and Collie, recent 6th and 4th round draft picks, respectively.  Finally, he got little help from the Indy ground game.  It was a year where no one distinguished himself as an unstopable force, and Manning's was the accomplishment that stood out most.  As for Johnson: unfortunately for him, his yards largely came in meaningless games without a reasonable chance for his team to make the playoffs.  There's always the question, "If he's so valuable, how come his team finished below .500?"

    If Johnson was MVP, why were they 0-6 until VY came in to QB? Johnsons numbers didn't get better after Vice came in. He wasn't even the MVP on his own team. MVP isn't about numbers, it's the Most Valuable Player to his team. No player in the NFL had a game all season like the one Manning had on MNF against Miami. He then then traveled to AZ 6 days later on another late prime time game and won there. He threw 6 TD's and got 2 wins in 4 days against the Broncos and Jax. I know the Manning haters don't like that he got another MVP but he deserved it.
