Favre won't win it because his true value won't be determined until the playoffs. Although I wouldn't put anything past the media. Let's not remember this team won the division without him last year. I think that will hurt him. There's just too much talent around 4.
It's gotta be Peyton or Brees, both teams probably don't break .500 without those 2 respectively. Chris Johnson has gotta be in the discussion, too.
Peyton Manning should not have won the MVP in 2003 (Priest Holmes) or 2008 (Kurt Warner).
Brett Favre should not have won the MVP in 1997 (Barry Sanders!)
Had to get that off my chest.... This year I think if Favre finishes as strong as he has started he should win it. The scale of difficulty for having this kind of season, this late in his career, is off the charts.
This argument is brought up every year and it will never make sense to me. Does Favre have any control over whether the team has another player that can make a case for being better than him?
What if Chris Johnson played for the Colts? Then Manning can't win? I don't get it.
Manning > Chris Johnson
besides that, no he has no control, but if we are talking about the MVP and he isnt even the best player or even say the Most valuable player on his team, how can he qualify for the most valuable player of the league
You don't understand why a guy not being the most valuable player on his own team would hurt his chances of being proclaimed the most valuable player in the NFL?
Favre has been by far the most valuable player on his own team. Not even a debate.
I just don't understand why people act like if there is more than one great player on a team none of them can be MVP. So the MVP goes to the best player in the league, except if there is another elite player on that team? Makes no sense.
I'd grant you that, but where would they be without AD? a 40-year old Favre being forced to lead the team is a recipe for disaster.
Favre has 17 TDs and only 3 INTs. His QB Rating of 107.5 is insane when you realize he has never had a season where his QB Rating has been 100 or higher. Hes still making plays but he isnt making the classic Favre INTs. Favre at 40 is having one of his best seasons. The story in itself is valuable.
AD is also a top player on the Vikings. The reason I say Favre is more valuable is simply where the team was last year and where they are this year. Last year after 9 games the Vikings were 5-4. They ended up 10-6 and losing at home in the wild card round to the Eagles.
This season the Vikings are 8-1. Players like Sidney Rice are making plays weekly. Why? Brett Favre is the QB. The Vikings after 9 games IMO have a division title and a first round bye wrapped up. Why? Brett Favre.
Adrian Peterson helped make the Vikings a playoff team. This year Brett Favre has made the Vikings a possible Super Bowl contender. No player on the Vikings or in the NFL has been more valuable than Brett Favre.
