Peyton Manning Should Win NFL MVP
Peyton Manning may go down as one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history before it’s all said and done. The 15-year veteran had one of his best seasons as a pro in 2012 as he proved nearly everyone wrong.
I say he proved nearly everyone wrong because no one thought he would be as successful after returning from injury as he was when he was with the Indianapolis Colts. However, Manning was spectacular for the Denver Broncos, passing for more than 4,600 yards and 37 touchdowns with a an astounding 105.8 QB rating.
Although it looked odd to see Manning in a jersey other than a Colts one in 2012, his play looked familiar to fans around the league. For a player to come back from an injury that many thought would end his career and become the top passer in the league is nothing short of a miracle.
Manning looks to add his fourth MVP award to his trophy case, but Adrian Peterson stands in his way. It’s not easy coming to a team that barely made the playoffs the year before and leading them to the best record in football, but Manning did just that. His season didn’t end the way that he hoped it would in 2012-13 as his Broncos came up short in a thriller of a game against the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
One big mistake–an interception in overtime–led to a Ravens field goal to win the game, ending his season on a sour note. He is easily the most valuable player to his team than any other player in the league.
He is a no-brainer choice for comeback player of the year, but MVP is next on his list of accomplishments.
