At this point it looks like Christian Ponder is more valuable to the Vikings than Peterson.
Manning should win this in a landslide, and rightfully so. A QB should always win MVP, as QB is the most valuable position on a football team, and the best QB in any given year is the most valuable player there is.
I don't see how anyone could honestly make an argument for Peterson winning the award. They got too wrapped up in him coming close to ED's record.
Put Manning on the Vikings and Peterson on the Broncos and we're worse and the Vikings are better.
