    Re: MVP Meter: Two horses in this race

    I have a funny feeling that Brees and Manning aren't the only two in there.
    The Favre Factor alone will draw a number of votes for him if he can keep up his success.
    If the Vikings can manage a first round bye, i'm sure we'll be hearing about all we can manage about him.

    Re: MVP Meter: Two horses in this race

    I realize this is about the MVP, just found it odd that the guy starts this 2 horse race by talking about this record.
    There are 7 QBs that are averaging more yards per game than Brees.

    http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorysta...G&d-447263-n=1

    Avg yds/gm
    1. P Manning
    2. Big Ben
    3. Rivers
    4. Schaub
    5. Rodgers
    6. Warner
    7. Brady
    8. Brees

    Dan Marino’s record for passing yards in a season just simply isn’t safe these days. Not with Peyton Manning(notes) and Drew Brees(notes) firing bullets at it.

    Marino’s mark of 5,084 yards, which he set in 1984, had never been seriously threatened until last season, when Brees came 16 yards short of breaking it. Before Brees, no player had been closer than Kurt Warner(notes) in 2001, when he threw for 4,830 yards. Five games into the 2009 campaign, Manning is 245 yards ahead of Brees and on pace for 5,264 yards.
    Just think that he could have started by talking about something else beside Marino's record when it is about MVP of the NFL.
    I think it is going to come down to which team gets to the [s]super bowl[/s] playoffs will be the thing that set them apart.
    Or a perfect season along with a major record like that.
    I don't think a Viking gets it.
    With AD and Favre on the team, it splits the votes a little.

    The title and the lead in are misleading to me, like I said above.
    I agree with you.
    Someone like Big Ben could sneak in there if he gets to the [s]Super Bowl[/s] playoffs, if they want to talk about a record like that.
    The guy is passing lights out surprisingly right up there near P.Man.
    There could literally be two guys that break Marino's record this season, doubt it but it could happen. So once again, not just a two horse race.
    The MVP won't be settled by personal records alone.
    It will be joined with wins in the regular season and accomplishment in the playoffs in this close of a race.

    MVP voting is completed prior to the playoffs starting.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    You are right, strike that post from the records.
    They do vote before the playoffs.

    keep in mind, Brees who was only 16 yards off the record last season wasn't really even considered.
    If either team has a lapse and starts losing, you can bet their MVP votes will reflect that.

    except yardage, which people will jizz their pants over.
    Nobody cares if you have 110 QB rating and 2nd most TD's in the league with only two picks, if you don't top 4000 yards then you gotta do something damn good to get recognition in this league.
