    Re: AD For MVP 3.0

    Warner was written off so many times and look where he is now.

    Still rooting for AD though.
    Kurt is who we thought he was after last week, a fumbling, running scared QB in front of a fast swarming D-line.
    If you have that, you beat Warner.

    I liked the guys on NFLN during the probowl selection yesterday, they said that AD still gets his yards with the box stuffed with 8.
    Teams haven't respected out pass and have been keying on AD.
    Just repeating what they said.

    Re: AD For MVP 3.0

    He needs a couple more TDs and atleast 100 yards each of the next 2 games and a playoff birth to solidify it

    Adrian Peterson thinks big.

    Back in May, he set goals of 2,000 rushing yards and an MVP award for this season....

    Peterson's nine touchdowns put him in a tie for 15th in the NFL, and that low TD mark may be his biggest stumbling block.
    Hopefully he gets a bunch of TD's on Sunday.

    Who picks this award? If it's the sportwriters and sportscasters, AD won't win it. It will be Payton Manning who is "god" to the writers and broadcasters.

    Snow, I believe our recent win against the Cardinals, with Kurt at the helm, may be the deciding factor in the end....The fact that Kurt had an off day, and AD had a very good day, may be the deciding factor at the end.....
    That is unless, one of the two really outshines the other in the last two games.....If AD has solid games with solid numbers, against the Falcons and Giants, I believe it will be a no brainer for AD......AD is a player who is setting the stage to be one of the all time greats, and I'm loving it....

    manning has had a hell of a season. His colt team always start fast and end kinda slow. this year its been the other way around. IMO they are the hottest team in league but I still dont think he deserves MVP. Without AD it would have been hard for Gus and T jack (last week) to do some of the things they are doing. He is so valuable to this team i just hope he gets it.

    He's hardly having a hell of a season. He was struggling up until a few weeks ago when he finally got going. He did amazingly well in the thursday night game though I'll give him that.
