Comeback player of the year
 
This year seems to have two big stars in the running for the award. AP and Manning. J Charles could be in the running as well. Thoughts about how this may play out? Both APs and Mannings comebacks are nothing short of epic and could go either way IMO.

Tie always goes to the QB.

maher_tyler 10-22-2012 01:35 PM

Easily Manning.

Br0nc0Buster 10-22-2012 01:37 PM

Manning

Not just from coming back from being out a whole year, but he also revived the career of Stokely

Manning looks like he never left

It will be Manning for sure. First player to win comeback of the yr and MVP in same yr.

Crushaholic 10-22-2012 01:43 PM

I count out Charles ONLY because he's on a horrible team. The numbers he's putting up are outstanding. It's not his fault that the coaches don't run him more. It's actually funny to watch...ROFL!:kcbard:

Can you win MVP and comeback in the same year? We may just find out...

Doesn't comeback mean time was missed? AP tore the knee up in the playoffs and didn't miss any more time. Peyton missed a year. No contest, award is Peyton's

Minnesota didn't make the playoffs. He hurt it the second to last game. AP should be in this discussion do to the nature of his injury.

True for a RB that could have been a career killer injury. But I just think the lack of a lot of missed time is a hindrance. I'd say Iron Man award for AP comeback and MVP for Peyton

Brady Quinn has this in the bag.

Kaylore 10-22-2012 04:53 PM

Charles playing on an essentially irrelevant team will make him a non-factor. AD COULD but Manning is the most glittery one.

Agreed. Even if AD puts up a 2k season, Manning's story has been a media sensation, and will win comeback player of the year.

Don't you have to actually be coming back from something?

Broncos_OTM 10-22-2012 05:44 PM

manning is getting a lot of consideration already for the MVP. so i'd say its manning if the season ended today. lot of foot all left to be played though.

go_broncos 10-22-2012 05:55 PM

only 6 games played..10 more games left.
If manning continues to play at this level.he will definitely be comeback player of the year.
But, in general manning struggles to play during winter.
I am interested to see how he plays this season.

cutthemdown 10-22-2012 06:07 PM

I think Manning. No one ever thought ACL ends a career anymore. We all expected Charles and AD to comeback. True I thought they would need a half a yr to get back into the groove. The fact they both played well early was a bit of a surprise.

But Manning people thought he was done, lots of NFL people felt that his neck was too damaged to play. So I think because neck injuries so serious and hard to come back from, that manning has the edge right now.

AP tore his ACL and MCL fyi.

Manning has it in the bag. The only thing he is in running for is MVP.

Charles has had only 2 good games this year.

Doesn't years of suckage count for anything?

You got a point there. ;D

If you go back to ND than maybe.

BowlenBall 10-22-2012 09:55 PM

Objectively speaking, it's probably Manning, since his old team cut him loose for a younger, sexier quarterback. He'll get the sympathy vote.

ChampJesusBailey 10-22-2012 09:56 PM

AP bounced back great from a devastating injury but he missed what... 1 game last year? Peypey missed the entire season. Award should be his if he keeps up this level of play. Hell, MVP could be his if Rodgers stops putting up Madden stats.

Since M V P stands for most valuable player if Manning carries a weak team into the playoffs and wins a game or two he should win because he is clearly the MVP to his team.
