    David Ortiz, Lebron James, Ray Lewis all deserve it more than Satan Manning

    The Broncos O-line, Moreno, Decker, Welker, J Thomas, and D Thomas are equally if not more responsible for Manning's success than he is.

    LOL, I read "deification" as "defecation."

    I give up... I'll never understand their need to shove this guy down the publics throat constantly. David Ortiz was the obvious choice and it should have been easy but even if not Ortiz there are several more deserving candidates.

    Today I learned that if you have super talented WRs, you will score many TDs...

    This is like an actor or director who is close to the end of their career who has never won an Oscar and wins it on a subpar performance just because the voters feel that they may never get another chance to win again. It becomes more of a lifetime achievement award.

    Manning has never won this award. SI probably figures that at his age, he may never have a shot to win it again. So they gave it to him more on his body of work rather than his individual year performance.

    Not saying it is right, but that is probably their thinking.

    Again, I don't say it is right, but that is probably why he won. Who cares? It is an award put out by a magazine and it means absolutely nothing to the regular season, playoffs, or Super Bowl. It is just another trophy not named Lombardi that Peyton can put on his shelf.

    They can shove their collective thought process up their clackers. I'd like an explanation as to how Manning's 2013 has been better than guys who actually won stuff this year like LeBron James, David Ortiz and Patrick Kane. That doesn't begin to scratch the surface of the stupidity of this award to Manning.

    Manning has never previously won the award. SI not inclined to pick repeat champs. LeBron won last year.


    shows the stupidity of this award. Do we really want these morons to vote brady for MVP ??
