He might be in the discussion with some clutch wins against good teams and the like, but those stats wouldn't assure him an MVP. Far from it.
Rodgers isn't doing that this year though. And Manning has got MVP awards with similar statlines after all.
Surprisingly, if i had to give MVP out now i'd give it to Matt Ryan, hands down, with Flacco in 2nd.
