Ngata was a great draft choice and is a great player. Brodrick Bunkley is not nearly as good - so great draft day maneuver by the Ravens. Ngata is also a class act. Ngata is team MVP with Ray Lewis and Joe Flacco coming in second and third.

Least Valuable Player - Chris "Toast" McAlister.

Most valuable Raven? How about center Jason Brown? His leadership has helped to solidify an injury-riddled offensive line which has allowed Flacco, Mason and others to do their magic. The proof is in the Ravens' average time of possession per game.

I think Jim Leonard is my MVP. He has done nothing but impress. I think the best addition to the team. Has stepped in on special teams and defense and done well!

it is good to have so many players that deserve mention but my vote would have to go to ray.also don't forget the o/line they open holes for the rb and give flacco time to survey the feild and find secondary receivers

What the......?! Ngata 'collapses the pocket'??? Ngata rarely gets across the scimmage line on pass plays and i noticed in Sunday's game that on obvious passing downs he gets replaced which i suppose has been going on for at least the last few weeks. The fact is, he does'nt even know how to rush the passer

Hey Fire Trembley, Who do you think wanted Elvis G. here. Wasn't Ozzie. Billick had Moss in Min. and Culpepper at the height of his career. Stick to baseball. You don't know jack s--- about football

Boller will be a good fit in Detroit. He will be right at home with the over paid over rated busts of the NFL draft.

The BEST Raven is Jamaal Lewis. Even he knows its better to be in Cleveland than stuck on that loser team. They will choke - like they do every year.

Pretty unusual to see a punter nominated, and I don't know that I would agree simply because of the fact of the obviously limited time a punter plays. That said, it's great to see that someone else has noticed what a helluva year this guy is having. He's consistently kept the field position game working in the Ravens favor and in some close games has played a key role. If you think about it, the punter is the guy who sets the table for the defense, and this guy has been fabulous.

Ray is doing wonderfully but would his production go down without Ngata? Most likely. Would Ngata's production go down without Ray? Unlikely. Ngata is the MVP.

Regardless of the "two-thirds through the year MVP", congratulations and a job well done goes out to Haloti Ngata. Let's not forget that on draft day, Mark Schereth of ESPN called Ngata a disastrous pick for the Ravens, citing that he takes off on too many plays. Way to prove him wrong, big guy !!

How about the Heavy Backfield tandem as the MVP. With the two FB look, the offense has been pretty consistent. And that has definitely gotten the attention of the linebackers on play action passes, giving Flacco some reasonably open looks downfield.

Those two in the backfield are a rolling ball of butcher knives...

Rather then just performance the player that contributes the most to the team is Ray Lewis. Why? I remember when a Orioles team could not win. The addition of a player named "Frank" played his heart out made all others around him play hard. He did not allow any one on the team to slack! Lewis is to the Ravens as "Frank" and his Kangaroo court was to "The Birds"....

Hey Sandman ... WAKE UP !! Mason is an All-Pro ... I think he's been catching passes long before Flacco got into the league. He was leading the NFL in catches last year for awhile from McNair, Boller and Smith. We could use a receiver to stretch the field - but Mason is the consumate "possesion" receiver.
I am awake. The team would not be 7-4 with out Flacco. Mason was leading the league for a while last year? Maybe for a week one. Mason is great player in the twilight of his career. He is not a Team MVP player. I could give the entire defense MVP status. Teams that have success year after year have it because of the QB. It's a team effort, and the QB has to be the center of it.
Mason is currently 18TH in the league in receiving. Not shabby.

ngata is definitly the right choice. The man is simply impossible to move. For a man of his size to do the things that he does and not to mention that he plays on both the offense and defense? man send him to the pro bowl already
