Why don't the sportswriters just rename the award in his honor. The first two he got I can understand, he even deserved, but this I cannot stomach. Manning means a lot to his team, no question. Would they be a playoff team with say Matt Cassel at teh helm? Probably, but clearly not as good. Woudl the Dolphins be in the playoffs without Chad Pennington, would even be close? The answer to that is no. Would the Vikings without a ceratin Adrain Peterson? The answer to that question is a resounding "no!" In fact, without Peterson, the Vikings wouldn't be .500, they wouldn't be 5-11, hell they might have finished just ahead of the Lions at 1-15 or 2-14. Thats the impact an MVP has on his team. Peterson for MVP. Enough of the Manning ass-kissing already!
