    So the NFL is just under half the way over and we have a good idea of who the contenders for MVP will likely be at this point

    Here are my current standings and why

    #1 Alex Smith
    #2 Tom Brady
    #3 Kareem Hunt
    #4 Le'veon Bell
    #5 Antonio Brown

    HMs Todd Gurley, Kirk Cousins

    To me until Alex Smith throws a few ints he is the MVP leader without question. Yes there were drops but every QB gets those breaks. I believe it will balance out as the year goes on. Tom Brady right now is 2nd but I think by the end of the year he will stand alone as MVP. Hunt is starting to slow down his pace just a bit. He is still as of now the leader among RBs but Bell and Gurley are on his tail it would not take too much for them to catch up to him. Just 1 bad week for him would do it easily. Brown is the WR to talk about as MVP again but he is not on pace to break any records particularly with lots of TDs so he has a hard case. Kirk is having a good year but he isn't gonna take it. Rodger's getting hurt knocks him out of it. He was one of the most likely winners. Drew Brees has a shot still but has a lot of catching up to do. Unlikely he does that but still another good year for him.

    Your thoughts?

    Smith probably deserves it but there's also this thought in the back of my head that if you traded the 52 non-starting QB players on the Chiefs for the Patriots' current roster before week 1 that Brady might be undefeated right now.

    Still hoping our team gels into the overall superior unit, but until then it'd be too much of a homer move to give it to anyone other than Smith right now. Plus it's kind of a good story looking at his career. Similar to Rich Gannon.

    If we really want to talk MVP (not the award but the actual player who has had the most to do with his team's success) then I think that's Brady. Smith under center for us would be 3-4.

    Wentz has got to be on this list. He looks like the best QB to enter the league in the last 10 years.

    Yeah, I'm gonna agree with sportnik here. There is no way you can leave Wentz out of this conversation . He is absolutely lighting it up right now.

    17 TD's which is good but 4 pick and 7 fumbles, he isnt even in the top 10 in completion percentage. He has been fun and good but I do not think he is even the best QB in his division

    Smith and KC lost B2B games after a 5-0 start. Let everyone back in the race for #1. Brady would have to play worse than he has in order for Smith to be a legitimate MVP. Smith has been in the league a long time - we know what he is.

    Wentz is definitely in the conversation. He was excellent Monday night. He is the QB of one of the top three teams in the NFL and is one of the primary reasons they are doing so well. It's the Eagles of all teams, they haven't been relevant in a decade.

    I know this is PatsFans and everyone gets mad when someone suggests the MVP is anyone but Brady but I guarantee the national focus will be on Wentz if he keeps this up.

    By the way, if we make it to the Super Bowl this year we could very well end up seeing the Eagles on the other side. They look like a very balanced, complete team and the NFC feels pretty wide open at this point.

    You know, just the other day I was thinking about the MVP race and how it's odd that Brady 'only' has two career MVPs given that he's annually in the mix......

    ...but then it occurred to me that it is actually BECAUSE he consistently wins and puts up great stats that he doesn't win the race. We're so used to his ho-hum 12+ win seasons with 34-ish TDs that it has become almost an afterthought.

    Instead, naturally more attention is given to those better than average players who have a career year. When something happens outside of the norm there is bound to be more people taking notice.

    Kinda crazy Brady has only won this award twice. The problem is, Brady can throw 36 td and 8 picks and it would be just another year for him. He's only competing against his own standards.

    You often see teams come out of nowhere and put up crazy stats and records. Think Carolina in 15, NO in 09, Chiefs a few times, Dallas in 16. They are cinderella type teams. Eventually the clock hits midnight for these types of teams ( Minus NO).

    Yeah, I’m not fully sold on the Philadelphia Eagles just yet, despite the fact that they’ve played well through the first 7 games.

    Voted for Alex Smith at this stage of the season, doubt it will hold up by week 16... then #12 will take center stage but will not get that award, it will be given to the nearest "flavor of the month" in some weak willed effort to appease the masses..

    It's a bad poll when "other" is in third place.

    The truth is, if the voters were looking to give Brady the MVP they could have justified that in 2007, 2010, 2015, 2016, and of course this year 2017 too. Forehead basically won every time he was in contention while the GOAT has only won when it was a unanimous or near unanimous decision. He's lost every close race (2015, 2016) and you could certainly make a case for 2011 as well though Rodgers and Brees were slightly more statistically impressive during the RS that year.
