Default Peyton Manning AFC's December offensive player of the Month and player of week 17

I didn't see this posted but thought it deserved its own thread.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-of-the-month/


Quote:
Peyton Manning ended his comeback season with a flourish, leading the Broncos to five wins in five tries, and the quarterback has been named the AFC offensive player of the month as a result.

Manning also took home the honor in October and this win leaves him with six of the monthly awards for his career. Thatís tied with six other players for the most in the NFL since they started handing them out in 1986.
The Broncos have won AFC player of the week 8 of the 16 weeks it has been awarded, repeating a player only once (Manning).

I'm amazed at how "yeah, yeah, Manning's great" Bronco fans are. We had Orton and Tebow throwing the ball just last season and it's like Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

Because there is nothing to argue about. Manning is awesome. Not too many other ways to say it. You could have 26 replies of "ditto." Our previous not-named QBs all had major flaws going back to when the Duke retired. With those flaws there is room to argue, without them, it's just a lot of agreement.

No, you're wrong, Peyton Manning isn't just awesome, he's awesome and handsome (large craniums are sexy!)

I think Manning would agree the accolades like this are meaningless if the Broncos don't win in the playoffs. Yes, it's nice but no, it's not suprising nor is this taken for granted by the fans, especially considering the last 5-6 years or so.

Man that is just crazy right there. Has Denver ever had that many AFC player of the week awards in a single season? Figure I'd let someone google that for me.

Agreed. Aside from wanting the Broncos to win another Superbowl, to have Manning be the QB who wins a Superbowl with 2 different teams would be brilliant and without question in my mind put him ahead of Brady by far. Brady is good but that's as much beelzechick as it is him. PFM has always impressed me as the smarter, better QB. It's fascinating to watch him thrive here instead of kicking our asses.

Maybe I'm a homer (I am), but i can't fathom how Manning doesn't deserve the MVP. I think AD will win it because humans vote and a-holes like Peter King got swept up in the emotion of the Vikes/GB game, but I think Manning's team switch was incredibly unique circumstance that shows just how much one player can affect a team's value and production.

The Broncos were 8-8 last year, and pretty much defied every trend to get there (and won a playoff game thanks to a 60 minute long essential cover-zero). Enter Manning, and with him an entirely new culture that he brought, and the Broncos are the most efficient team in football. Our offense went from stone age to super in an off season, and suddenly all these offensive players that were questionable a year ago are either pro-bowlers or deserving of the honor. Hell, Manning's presense has even let our defense mostly do what it does best. Last season, the Broncos had -81 point differential, this season it was +192. Thats ****ing incredible. And what was the one major change in denver?

AD is awesome, no doubt. But he reminds me of that big kid from the playground no one could tackle. He's not making others better, he's just damn good and can carry a bad team to a 10-6 record. While Manning's presence makes everyone better, and he's carried a statistically bad team (based on last year) to the number one seed in the conference.

Well, it's not like Peyton is a home grown player. And it's not like he hadn't already cemented himself as a HOFer before he got here. Those two things take away the excitement of him getting awards in my opinion. For a guy like Von, he's our guy. He is the Broncos. And we want him to get that DPOY because it validates him as an elite player.

I dont think thats why people arent discussing him. its what the guy said above. No one disagrees PM is amazing. There's nothing to argue anymore.
