People seem to forget how Manning was actually talked about in circles last year to receive the MVP.. for not playing a single game! Because it became obvious just how valuable he was, once he was out.
In Denver, he added value not only to the offense, but to the defense and special teams as well. AP added value to.. the offense. That's about it. QBs often are most valuable for a reason. They add the most value to the team. Manning adds amazing value to our team. So unless most VALUABLE player means something else (like.. most amazing offensive player), it should be Peyton, hands down.
