How about AP? Is he going to beat the Ravens today?
He might, he's probably playing Madden in his living room against them.

OK, then how about this...TD is the 2,000 yard rusher who led his team to a SB title....where as Peterson is the 2,000 yard rusher who led his team to a wildcard playoff loss.

The fact that everyone is trying to come up with these lame ass excuses to justify it just confirms that the Mane is full of crybabies and most aren't actually interested in anything more than a tear-filled circle jerk.

The MVP is for the regular season so, again, if they give TD the benefit of that then they're giving the benefit to him that you all accuse them of NOT giving Broncos in every other instance. Oh, and we'll ignore the fact that your justification can't exist since MVP is announced before the SB...

Well I can play that dumb game too.

I can tell you that Shaun Alexander and Randy Moss both lead the NFL in scoring and made it to the SB. Have any 2000 yard rushers made it to the SB since TD?

Judging by the fact that 3 2000 yard rushers failed to make it to the SB and at least two league leaders in TDs have played in the SB I think it safe to say that scoring points for the team helps more then individual rushing yards.

You can keep trying to obscure it how you want but the point exists that if Peterson isn't deserving of his, TD wasn't deserving of his.

I'm sure you can find a quote of mine then that says AP doesn't deserve MVP.

Also you are a fool to think scoring points is a individual stat. NFL football games are won and lost by scoring points. The difference in points TD scored then AP would have put the Vikings from 20th PPG to 6th. Yet you seem to think that AP's 1 yard per carry average is the more important team stat.

Points aren't scored (or not scored) in a vacuum. If player X doesn't score, player Y might. If player X does, player Y never gets a chance. Bettis, late in his career, was a TD machine but nobody'd consider him an MVP of any of those teams. He just took the ball at the one and punched it in. If he hadn't existed, the ball wouldn't have just been turned over or something.

In Moss' big TD year, there were often times when they'd go 3 times to him at the goal line. That doesn't mean that if he hadn't been there, the team would've just scored 120+ points less. They'd have gotten most of those points just the same.

On a team that was projected for about 5 wins. Manning would of got the MVP if they didn't choke against Baltimore.

At the time TD was becoming the 4th player to rush 2000 yards he was just became 6th player in NFL history to rush for more then 20 TDS in a season. Chew on that for a bit.

I'm not convincing you, you're not convincing me. Have an extra beer and I will as well.

Where on earth did you come to that conclusion? There are no rules in opinions. Context and circumstance have everything to do with determining value. MVP is far more than production based. If it were simply a game of numbers there would be no way any players outside of QB's would win it. TD won the MVP partially because of numbers, but mostly due to the circumstances of those numbers. Defending champ, SB MVP, and being the catalyst for an incredible team season (one where Elway was in and out of the line up). Again, if he had those numbers and it was the 2000 season, he wouldn't have won it. Just like when guys like Jamal Lewis and Chris Johnson didn't win MVP in their 2000 yard seasons. Yet when Barry Sanders did it, his body of work was taken into account, and he still had to share it with Brett Favre.

I'll take your word for it. Arguing that is just going to feel like work at the end and nothing will get accomplished.

If anyone needs any more evidence of a bias against fly over country, this season is it. See also the 2007 MLB honors when Matt Holliday and Troy Tulowitsky got cornholled.

Btw months ago I stated in another thread that I thought JJ Watts was better than Miller and folks piled on about how wrong I was.

"He who laughs last, laughs best."


Do not get me wrong I love Miller but JJ is an animal of another kind.

Maybe John can find an almost clone of this guy in the draft and make me a happy camper.

Yes. Clearly snubbed for the media metropolises of Minneapolis and Houston...

But clearly all of those sports writers that have writing about manning choking in the playoffs knew what was going to happen.
