    Why is Manning getting so much MVP love? He's done nothing special on the Broncos.

    It is not like he signed onto a bad team and resurrected them from the dead!  The Broncos WERE the AFC West champions last year and are simply the same again this year, but, Manning as MVP? They were a decent team last year who won the AFC West in spite of Tebow at the helm, so they had the makings of a decent team.  Manning was simply plugged into the QB slot.  All he did was make it simpler, and quicker, to get the AFC West crown.  It also doesn't hurt when SD falls flat on its face, AZ loses 8 in a row and Seattle is holding on.  I do not see his play elevate any more than he has performed in the past.  Like Brady, he is doing what is expected of him and he is keeping to his performance track record.  It is not like he is head and shoulders above everyone else!  Brady, as the QB for the Pats, now has his record 10th divisional title and that doesn't deserve more MVP love?

    Let the arguments begin!

    Well when he signed there, I thought..why is he signing there? I didn't think there was a whole lot of talent on that offense - he made them all better. I can't stand Manning and thought I had seen the last of his ugly mug, but the guy deserves some credit.

    Not saying he doesn't deserve some credit, but, MVP worthy?  That offense won some games with Tebow.  What did Manning resurrect?

    I don't know the criteria for winning the MVP but Brady is performing his greatness as expected, Manning is performing at a level that was not expected. Many of us thought Peyton was done or would be just a shadow of himself.

    Brady doesn't get enough love that's for sure and I think they both are deserving.

    Digger, the only question about Manning's play were about his neck.  If he is truly healthy, most thought he'd be back to square one!  Look at how Brady performed after his knee surgery...also above expectations.  Manning gets MVP love and Brady not?

    Manning should win Comeback Player of the Year

    Brady wins MVP after running the table the last 4 games (with a lot of help from the D) and going 13-3

    His stats are very good along with his team doing good.  Certainly a 3 way running for QB's between him, Brady and Rodgers.  Next few weeks could really decide it.
