The 2013 NFL MVP award will undoubtedly go to Peyton Manning . The honor would be an absolute farce if it were doled out to any other candidate this year, considering Manning's elite statistics.

As a Janitor I'm always cleaning up the messes of the sports writers. This sports writer's article omits all the reasons why Peyton should not get the award and also omits why Brady deserves it more.
Manning has the best protection so he can take his time, then he has the best receiving corps so he just waits for them to get open. Then he also plays at altitude so he has a distinct advantage over every team that has to play at Mile High Stadium. What's missing is his beating up on a bunch of losing teams and losing to every winning team he played but one. They don't have losing teams in the playoffs so he may not get very far. As for getting very far, he still hasn't taken the Broncos any farther than Tebow. What Manning has is numbers because of having better players to support him and weaker teams to play against, but still he lost to every winning team he played but one. He lost to three underdogs and were it not for Danny Amendola dropping a Brady TD pass in Miami, New England would be the number one seed. Meanwhile Brady beat four teams he should have lost to, which means Peyton is a -3 and Brady is a plus 4 for a swing of 7 in a 16 game season. AND Brady beat Manning head to head after being down by 24 in the third quarter. Brady also beat Drew Brees and came back to score 2 TDs in 70 seconds to steal another victory. Brady had arguably the best season any QB ever had given his set of circumstances, no receivers of any size, nor can they catch. They were mostly rookies and some not drafted. We're it not for referees picking up a flag in Carolina and throwing one in New York yet omitted to throw it three times when the Jets committed the same infraction, one that had NEVER been called in NFL History, Brady would have had the Pats two full games ahead of Manning with the tie breaker in hand because Brady BEAT Manning HEAD TO HEAD, ON THE FIELD. Yet Manning wins in the non-hearts and non-minds of the sports writers. On the field Manning can't beat Brady so the writers do it for him in their press rooms. That is where the greatness of Manning exists anyway, there and in the minds of lemmings throughout the country. Wouldn't be surprised if the league saw what Manning was doing stat-wise and decided they wanted him as MVP to sell the league. Funny thing, he may not even have the yards record because seven of those yards came on a backward pass which makes it a run. Just like the league did to Brady and Gronk a few years back. Question is what's an MVP? The guy who beats up on losers so he has numbers but can't beat winning teams, or a QB who has actually won the fight on the field despite not having the support necessary to do it. Quality and Value i.e. as in most valuable, it's Brady by definition. Manning is just yellow journalism.

Not saying he's not a good qb, just looking forward to seeing Manning choke in the playoffs as before. Kind of like Farve use to do. I hate teams who rely on one individual to carry them to success. One or two good hits would be very humbling.

This just in, NFL acknowledged internally that Peyton Manning DID NOT SET THE RECORD FOR YARDS PASSING, but they feel he would have gotten it had he stayed in the game (but he didn't), so they are, get this, awarding him the record despite not earning it on the field. The NFL has now proven itself to lack any integrity at all. These are the same guys who stand in judgment of others and hand out fines and suspensions to Coach Belichick and Coach Payton for so called crimes when the League Office is no better. These are the same guys who took away a passing touchdown from Brady and Gronk when they did the exact same thing, a backwards pass. The NFL has now aligned themselves with the sports writers who bow at the feet of Manning despite the damage they do to the truth. The NFL can no longer be trusted to make honest decisions when this glaring decision is to "fix" a so called injustice. The injustice is their fix is at the expense of the truth and forgives Manning, yet again of an enormous blunder. Sports writers do this all the time for Manning, just check out the details behind his MVPs. Now the NFL is in lock step with the sports writers in support of Manning at the expense of the truth.
I'd ask Congress to repeal Footballs charter and protected status but they are no better. Both these institutions are proof that the end of the current age is upon us because we now accept lies as the truth and the truth is treated as a lie. Way to go NFL. Think of all the wasted hours people spend watching the NFL thinking that the outcomes are not predetermined. Outcomes like MVPs and SB winners. If you must watch, you should REALIZE ITS ENTERTAINMENT NOT COMPETITION. When the league office decides who holds the records, like Manning and they decide who gets to play in the postseason like San Diego over Pittsburgh (league also acknowledged that mistake too but like Mannings case will let things stand), then it's time to understand the players are but pawns who minimally decide, if only the League Office lets them.

You know, if enough people clamor about this stuff the league will have to do right by the truth or lose revenue. And losing revenue is all they really care about. It wasn't until player safety concerns were causing them to lose revenue that they stepped up and claimed to care about the players. If you can't hit them where it hurts, the wallet, they just don't give a crap about anything, not even the fans. Their view is the fans are idiots who pay big bucks to watch grown men mangle themselves while the League Office rakes in the dough. They are probably right, we are idiots, and the players are bigger idiots because they sacrifice their health, lives, latter years so these fat cats can add to their riches. We'd all be better off reclaiming the time and doing something worthwhile with it that benefits ourselves and our families and our pets.

Wish I could be Peyton Manning for a day. I'd cheerfully accept the Offensive Player of the Year Award and then to add some integrity into football and my own legacy, I'd turn down the MVP Award and say give it to the individual most worthy of being valuable to his team, not just for stats. Peyton needs to take action or his legacy is doomed.

I think his legacy is already doomed. Everyone knows the media are not to be trusted. Anyone who takes an honest look into the how and whys of Peyton's legacy will find his "greatness" is never earned on the field but awarded him by crony sports writers. Even his numbers are a result of special circumstances. This could be a special year for Peyton. He could win the trifecta. Awarded the MVP by Sports Writers despite losing to every winning team he played against but one. Awarded the Passing Yards Record by the NFL League Office despite being six yards short. And soon to be awarded the Super Bowl by League Officials on suspect calls. Wow what a player. Just like a cartoon. Suspension of disbelief, look it up.
Future historians will come down hard on Peyton because he was dealt a winning hand year after year and he almost never cashed it in. And even when he didn't the media claimed he did. What a farce.

One of the teenagers made an interesting comment. He said the word manning, doesn't that mean being like a man (but not actually)? He is incorrect of course, but seemed funny, and yet words sometimes change their meaning over time. Peyton could be the reason for this change, especially in the age of Obama where he promised to bring us change, in exchange for our dollars. Likewise, Peyton brings us a pseudo MVP when we have real ones to pick from, and pseudo record holder in place of the real thing. A real man would turn down the passing yards record, but Peyton just looks like a man. Hey, maybe that teenager was on to something. Could it be the press is like that too? They just press us to believe the lies they spin to put money in their pockets? We obviously are onto something here. From the mouths of babes, the truth shall be made known.

Just read an article that raised Peyton to demigod status. It said, to paraphrase, that Peyton was sooo good that it would be unfair to compare him to other football players of any era (should have been of an error, he makes so many).. What a bleeping crock. The incestuous relationship between the media and tihis guy is sickening to the Nth degree.
To be generous one could argue he belongs with Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino, other stars who were individually gifted stat-wise but never lived up to their expectations as champions.. He is certainly no Jordan or Russell, or Bird or Magic for that matter, and no he certainly is no Graham, Brady or Montana. Wouldn't even put him in the second level with Unitas or Elway. When the reason why the press gives him accolades unearned comes out, and it will one day, people are going to be royally pissed they bought into this hero worship of the guy. One day they will know and his legacy will be greatly hampered. Poof. He is doing himself no favors by accepting awards and records he hasnt earned either. Could it be they are building him up this high so that when the fall comes this buildup is meant to cushion his fall? Stranger things by the media have occurred. Just wait and see. Let's all hope he smartness up before its too late.

If the MVP is going to keep on going to the best statistical players in the league then the NFL should change the award to Most Outstanding Player. The fact is that if you bring back Kyle Orton to the Broncos and Matt Cassel to the Pats for this past season and let them play the full year in place of their respective QB's, what team has the better season? Well yeah Denver does because of the surrounding cast on that team. Hell if you ad dweller and J. Thomas to Denver the year of Tebow they might have been in the SB. My point is there are players that were valuable to their team. Josh Gordon, Zach Stacy, Drew Brees, to name a few

This just in...Broncos realizing they didn't score in the first half have put a plan in to take out Sherman as they did Talib, hoping to jump start their passing game like they did against the Patriots. Little do they know that if it looks like their attempt on Talib, Peyton can be taken out by Seattle just as well. What goes around, comes around.

Just to be fair, Peyton is not nearly as bad as this years Super Bowl has made him out to be. Conversely, he is nowhere near as good as they have pumped him up to be during the regular season. Learn from it. It's what the media does. But to be fair, the media is skewed toward Manning. They make him out to be better than he is, and they make excuses for him when he screws up. Guess you know what's coming. Excuse after excuse after excuse. Those interceptions of his are classic and are the ducks Sherman was referring to this week.

Reason people are surprised is because they bought into the facade of how good Peyton is after Denver played the 2nd easiest schedule in the entire NFL with those great receivers on Denver. Peyton is thinking if he can at least get some passing yards, the fools stat, he can get people to think he played an OK game. Even if he gets 400 yards, he won't be able to wash this stain away. Two interceptions and one a pick six with no points in the half, then a fumble in the biggest game of the year possibly your life. Three turnovers by Peyton is not a way to add to your legacy. Denver's 606 points against the leagues worst is not a fair comparison of how good they really are against good teams. As it has been said many, many times Peyton played against only 4 AFC Teams that had winning records and lost to 3 of them (Indy, Pats, San Diego). Seattle has ripped the false impression the media has been painting of Manning and in a big way. Records aside, and one awarded not earned, not much of an MVP.

Seattle was built to beat San Fran but Denver was built to win a defenseless AFC. No chance Peyton ever wins in Denver because it will take the Broncos too long to retool their defense. By the looks of things today, even their offense needs some overhauling. Seattle and San Fran will be battling it out for years to come. Meanwhile, Manning can collect paychecks and the media's praise. That's what they do.
