Peyton Manning has had a more than a stellar year with the Denver Broncos and I believe he should get MVP for the year. (Sorry Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady).
Not only has he had a record breaking season as a new Denver Bronco but it is just amazing how he has been able to come back after 4 neck surgeries which no one thought he would fully recover from. Peyton has given the Broncos hope for another NFL Championship. Just like we got John Elway from the Colts, hopefully Peyton too will be one holiday miracle in the making! He has turned this franchise around!
Giving the Broncos 9 straight wins in a row making it a total of 11 wins to 3 losses is an amazing record for the previously struggling Denver Broncos. People were anxious to see what was going to happen at the beginning of the season but it is no surprise that Peyton Manning has more than delivered his side of the deal. With 4016 yards he is well on his way to posting his third-highest passer rating for his career. Not to mention that some of his other stats are very close to being the best of his NFL career. And considering that it usually takes players time to adjust to new teams it is just amazing how fast Peyton has come to embrace the Broncos as HIS team. His signature act of directing plays to teammates can still be seen on the field and is a key part of what makes Peyton such a great leader as well as a team player.
Tom Brady’s stats may be better in more areas than Peyton Manning but even ESPN gives Peyton a higher QBR than Brady. And I guess it’s a different game when someone like Brady is consistently active in the NFL and is compared to Manning who was out an entire season. And it really comes down to what people look at when deciding who the MVP should be. But I agree that Peyton will get the sentimental vote from the people since he has such an amazing story behind him and his recovery and resurgence in the NFL has really been something quite unique.
What do you guys think?
