Somewhere, in an elegant trophy shop with a surplus of sterling silver footballs, a trophy maker is sitting, concentrating, meticulously engraving Peyton Manningís name into the 2012 NFL Comeback Player of the Year trophy.

Too soon?

Over the past 40 years, 42 players have been given the honor that seems to have been created for the season Peyton Manning is about to have. Itís not that Manning is a lock for an MVP-caliber season. Itís not that heís certain to hold a different trophy ó one with Vince Lombardiís name engraved into it ó at the end of the season. The Comeback Player of the Year Award is destined for his trophy case because, of the players who suffered through injuries or adversity during the 2011 season, Manning is the best.

I wouldn't be surprised if he won Comeback player, MVP, and SB this year...he's that good of a QB.

Gotta love a QB that gets MVP consideration in a year he didn't play a down.....but then again, he's ****ing Peyton Manning
