    Re: Comeback Player of the year?

    Steve Smith followed closely by K-Rob.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Re: Comeback Player of the year?

    I don't think Smith will win it. They usually don't give it to players who didn't play the year before because of injury.

    Past winners:
    1987 Charles White, RB LA Rams
    1988 Greg Bell, RB LA Rams
    1989 Ottis Anderson, RB NY Giants
    1990 Barry Word, RB Kansas City
    1991 Jim McMahon, QB Philadelphia
    1992 Randall Cunningham, QB Philadelphia
    1993 Marcus Allen, RB Kansas City
    1994 Dan Marino, QB Miami
    1995 Jim Harbaugh, QB Indianapolis
    1996 Jerome Bettis, RB Pittsburgh
    1997 Robert Brooks, WR Green Bay
    1998 Doug Flutie, QB Buffalo
    1999 Bryant Young, DT San Francisco
    2000 Joe Johnson, DE New Orleans
    2001 Garrison Hearst, RB San Francisco
    2002 Tommy Maddox, QB Pittsburgh
    2003 Jon Kitna, QB, Cincinnati
    2004 Drew Brees, QB San Diego

    Most of these guys resurrected their careers after playing badly in the past. IT wasn't injury that slowed them down.

    Carson Palmer wouldn't qualify as a comeback player, that's somebody that was a star and then fell off, and came back when not many people expected it.

    I'd say Brunell. Bledsoe was still putting up respectable numbers with Buffalo, he just couldn't get them in the playoffs. K-Rob and BJohnson, while both have had a tremendous impact on our team, and have had great comeback seasons, neither has played a full year, that's why I'd go with Brunell.

    I honestly have to say that K-Rob and Steve Smith will be up for the award. And of course all of us here in Viking Land want K-Rob to win it.

    Like I said, he wouldn't qualify as comeback player of the year, but I wouldn't be surprised if he got a couple MVP votes. That's an interesting race this year, you don't have one guy assaulting the record books like Manning did last year.

    You've got to consider:

    Tiki Barber
    Shaun Alexander
    Peyton Manning
    Edgerrin James
    Carson Palmer
    Ladainian Tomlinson
    Jake Plummer

    A couple other guys could be mentioned, but I doubt would get any first place votes.
