After last night's great comeback by the Broncos, here's this line from this espn story sidebar Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers - Recap - October 15, 2012 - ESPN): "Peyton Manning inserted himself in the MVP race and reshaped the AFC West by leading the Broncos' monster comeback" Ok, so the media is now once again on the Peyton Manning for MVP bandwagon. But curiously, there's no mention whatsoever of Tom Brady. Let's compare: Record: Brady: 3-3 Manning: 3-3 *Brady's Patriots whipped Manning's Broncos 31-21 in week 5 Stats: Brady: 65.8%, 1845 yds, 10 td, 3 int, 97.2 rating Manning: 67.8%, 1808 yds, 14 td, 4 int, 105.0 rating *Brady also leads the #1 offense in the league in both points scored and yards gained Look, we all knew this was coming - that if Manning had a good year that he'd be hailed as an MVP candidate. Right now the Broncos are 3-3, which is a .500 team. Last year, without him, and with Tim Tebow, the Broncos were 8-8, which is a .500 team. I'm not saying that Brady should be the league's MVP. I am saying that it never ceases to amaze me that Manning is *always* considered in the top group for MVP while, in this case, Brady isn't even mentioned.
