I consider it Brady in a runaway according to advanced statistics, but I'm not losing any sleep over it. The media votes for storylines and is beyond ignorant, it's a meaningless award.


I would love for Brady to MVP, but i would be very upset if Manning wins it over AP.


Who cares about the MVP? Let Manning have it, and lets go get the Vince Lombardi. For old times' sake.

Those two things are separate... winning MVP doesn't cancel out possibly winning the SB although history does work against the MVP winner of the regular season winning it.

Since it's pretty much an unofficial rule that the MVP is on a play-off team, why is it awarded without reference to the play-offs?

If some MVP player goes out and plays awful, costing his team their first play-off game, is he still MVP? Especially if the second place MVP goes on a tear all the way to the Superbowl MVP.

Now if a non-play-off bound player could win it, fair enough. But they don't. Just seems odd.

Happened a couple of times to Manning, lost his first playoff game.

Yep, to Tom Brady aswell one time.

But i guess I'm fine with MVP been based on the regular season as long as the team makes the playoffs, it's just how it is now, no reason to change it.

Looked to me like Ogletree ran an Och-cinco type route....ie a bad one. He was the hot read on the blitz.

How anyone can continue to have any faith in Romo whatsoever is baffling to me.

It will be very interesting to see if they stick with him if they lose tonight.
