AP anyone?

AP moves up in the comeback player of the year award with Manning moving into the MVP discussion, IMO. :)

To be honest, Brady can have the MVP, let Peyton get another SB ring.

In my book: MVP. Brady/Manning/AP/Luck

OPoY goes to AP no question.

No way man.

Brady? Im sorry, but Mannings ahead of him. In Peytons first year as a Bronco, he has broke several team records already. The God (elway) in Denvers records. Tough shoes to fill. He has also been breakin NFL records all year no one is talking about it seems.

AP is AP. OPOY is what he will win.

Manning is looking at CPOY and NFL MVP. Folks say the NFL 'wants' to give it to Peyton.. well, why not?

He has had a sensational year. On another stat.. he will tie the NFL record of 70%/3TD's with one mare game like that. The record is 7. He is currently at 6.

The guy has just been fantastic.

Brady has done well, but we expected that. He is on the same team with the same coach he has always had. All cheating aside, Billichick is a football genius. He isnt dealing with server injury, ect.

In a year of comeback greatness, good QB's like Rodgers, Brady and Defense guys like watt, Miller, Willis will take a back seat to Manning and RB Peterson.

I wonder if Rivers still feels happy about Peyton being in his division now..? haha

It was never about Chargers dominating Peyton. It was the Chargers' D-line dominating Peyton's O-line, and the Chargers' O winning several key matchups with Colts' D with VJax and Sproles often.

Plus, the Chargers are on the downhill with their talent. That is what happens when you let go of Brees, Turner, Sproles, LT, Cromartie and VJax :).

Brady trumps him in nearly every stat cat. As well as winning the H2H battle.

Peyton is playing great. Not denying that in the slightest. He's been phenomenal. Brady's been better.

Sure BB is a brilliant HC. Peyton has an HC for a DC as well as a good HC. Peyton's got arguably the DPoY on the other side of the ball. And a much better Def.

Peyton's on a new team. Brady hasn't had his OL nearly all year. One game with both his stud TEs week 1. His only constant has been Welker. Lloyd's new.

The AFC W is an even bigger joke than the AFC N.

If NE beats both Hou and SF you can hand Brady the trophy.

You missed my point. When Phillip Rivers was asked how he felt about Peyton being in his division, Riv3rs replied with bring it on and i'm glad he's here. My point was I'm sure he isnt nearly as glad now.

That was probably wishful thinking on his part when he said that hoping that would keep the Chargers' focus on a game by game basis. In fact, it was the opposite. Peyton does not let down on the throttle taking no one for granted like he did with the Colts. With every game of distance between Peyton and the Broncos and the Chargers, instead of stepping up to the plate, the Chargers have all folded like lawn chairs. :)

You are right.

If we are counting from when we started having 8 divisions (starting in 2000), Brady has won the division in:

2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 (10 times)

Peyton has won the division in:

2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012 (8 times)

Of course, Peyton won it once in 1999 when the Colts were in the AFC East with the Pats, I think before these 8 divisions were formed. But this count is done since 2000.

Hope that clarifies it.

2008 was a chance missed albeit those bursa sac surgeries did not help when Peyton fell to a 3-4 hole in the first 7 games and the CJ2K inspired Titans' train with geriatric Collins had their best year, Peyton ended up MVP though. :)

Both players missed a whole year in 2011 (Peyton) and 2008 (Brady) respectively.

Good research there Chad! Again, like I always say...Tomato Tamato...I respect both Peyton & Tom equally. I understand that people may favor 1 QB over another, which is fine. You can't go wrong with either field general IMO.

Yeah I'd say about him and Manning are playing at a same level but Manning situation aka last year makes it much more special. Also special considering it's a new team.

Pretty sure Manning is the only QB to win three different divisions in his career. Brady is still stuck with one. :P

Manning has 9 total and Brady has 10 divisional championships. But they both can collectively thank the NY Jets, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans, and Jacksonville Jaguars for that, at least in part.

Statistically they're almost dead even. Their teams have identical records. This is becoming a two-man race and looks like it'll go down to the wire. Love to see the two "old guys" showing up the youngsters in the NFL!

While on some level it would be nice to see Brady win another MVP, I honestly don't care about it all that much. I'd rather see the Patriots go deep into the playoffs and possibly win another title. It'll be difficult for any AFC team this year though. The best teams are clearly in the other conference, by and large. (Nothing against Houston, which to me, is a scary team.)

That's been a popular sentiment this season...but I'm not so sure that's the case anymore as it appeared to be during the first half of the season. Who scares you the most from the NFC? Many of the teams that looked like world beaters earlier in the season have fallen back a bit in my eyes...and I would give any of Houston, New England, or Denver a legitimate shot against any of them.

True, but I think part of the apparent drop-off in the NFC is the result of those teams beating up on each other a bit. A lot of the teams that the Patriots don't seem to match up as well against are also in the other conference, but that's just a Pats fan's perspective I guess.

The next two games for New England will be very telling either way.

I think it's safe to say Brady is the front runner right now, no?

Clearly at this point, in my opinion. If he repeats a solid performance against the 49ers and wins, mine as well start carving his face into the MVP trophy because no one else is getting it

One important stat, Brady has turned the ball over only 4 times all year, all interceptions. Manning is having a good year with 10 interceptions.

Brady definitely pulled ahead this week. It's looking more and more like a two-man race now. Brady's got the better opportunity here since he's got a primetime game this weekend, but with three games left it's still way too close to call.

I know i wrote somewhere , or thought I did at least , that his play Vs texans on national TV will help Brady's cause but can't find it now ,

Probably some where in another thread , are just to many of these on this isuue & personally just dont want to get into repeated back & forth remarks on something that will be regurgitated even after the awards come out

    • Especially after the previous drive ended in a fumble recovery for a touchdown and then we put the ball on the turf the first play of that last drive in the first half.
    • I think Marvin was the best route-runner in NFL history -- a big part of that was due to his very strong chemistry with Peyton.  I don't think any QB-WR duo will ever accomplish what those 2 did in terms of statistics or in terms the timing and awareness they had together.    I know of at least 2 top-tier DBs who played when Marvin was in the league (with Randy Moss, TO, and several other WRs who brought more attention to themselves for their antics than Marv did) who said Marv was the best they ever faced -- Charles 'Peanut' Tillman and Champ Bailey (probably the best DB in the NFL that had enough of a sample size against Marvin's class of WRs in their prime to make a solid judgement).     Just look at Marvin's NFL Records -- until OBJ comes close to doing anything like this, over this amount of time, I don't think people should be debating it:   NFL records -Most receptions in a single season with 143, set in 2002 -Most receptions in a 4 season period (469), 1999–2002; 5 season period (563), 1999–2003; 7 season period (731), 1999–2005; 8 season period (826), 1999–2006; 9 season period (885), 1998–2006; 10 season period (958), 1997–2006; 11 season period (1,022), 1996–2006 -Most receiving yards in a 4 season period (6,322), 1999–2002; 5 season period (7,594), 1999–2003 -Most games in a career with at least 8 receptions (51), 9 receptions (32), 11 receptions (12), 12 receptions (8) -Most consecutive games with at least 6 receptions (16) and 9 receptions (6) -Most consecutive seasons with at least 5 touchdowns (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens -Most consecutive seasons with at least 6 touchdowns (11) – shared with Terrell Owens, Jerry Rice, Don Hutson -Most consecutive seasons with at least 5 touchdown receptions (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Terrell Owens -Most consecutive seasons with at least 6 touchdown receptions (11) – shared with Jerry Rice, Don Hutson -Most consecutive seasons with at least 10 touchdown receptions (8) -Most consecutive seasons with at least 11 touchdown receptions (4)-tied with Lance Alworth, Art Powell -Most consecutive seasons with at least 14 touchdown receptions (2)-tied with Jerry Rice -Most Consecutive seasons with 1,400+ receiving yards (4); 1999–2002 -Most Consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions (4); 1999–2002 -Most Consecutive seasons with 82+ receptions (8); 1999–2006 -Most games in a single season (2002) with at least 6 receptions (15), 7 receptions (12), 8 receptions (12), 9 receptions (10), 11 receptions (5) -Most games in a season with at least 13 receptions (2) in 1999 – tied with several players - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the record for most completions between a Wide Receiver and Quarterback with 953. - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for passing touchdowns between a WR and QB with 112. - Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for passing yards between a WR and QB with 12,756. -Marvin Harrison and Peyton Manning currently hold the NFL record for completions in a season between a WR and QB with 143 in 2002. - First player to record 2 seasons of 1,600 yards receiving in NFL history, (1999 & 2002).

    • http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=17660738          Have you seen this lol ?
    • He'll be fine and I mean, he's going to be here the next 6 years.  There's no perfect QB and even the very good one's have droughts, bad games here and there, etc.  Nothing wrong with being frustrated with that, but it'd jsut be nice if people could accept players with their faults and understand that sometimes, things aren't going to be perfect all of the time.  Accepting it doesn't mean you approve of it.  But it would be nice if, after a bad week, we don't always start to question what type of QB Luck is.  I'm not accusing you of anything, you've always been level headed from my perspective.     Anyhow, at this point, he's a good QB, not much is going to change that between now and retirement, assuming something catastrophic doesn't happen like he gets shot buying groceries or injured into retirement.  Whether or not he'll ever be a great QB or better is a 15-20 year journey that we can't ever know the answer until it's obvious.  Right now it isn't because, as most people should understand, we're only 5 years into that 15-20 year career.  
    • I hope you're kidding on this, honestly.   OBJ came in as a rookie with a most-likely future HOF QB throwing to him.  Marvin came in with Jim Harbaugh, who although is one of my all-time favorite Colts, was not much more than a mediocre NFL QB.  Sure, Marv's rookie year he had Marshall Faulk (who rushed for a whopping 587 yards with a 3.0 average YPC) -- in fact, the Colts rushed for only 1,448 yards Marv's rookie year compared to the Giants who rushed for 1,603 total yards (in a more pass-heavy league, they had 2 guys who exceeded Marshall Faulk's rushing production if you compare side by side).  Marv's supporting WR cast his rookie year included the great Sean Dawkins, the amazing Aaron Bailey, and the very feared threat Brian Stablein.  He also had Ken Dilger (a very average NFL TE), and Marcus Pollard (who had a grand total of 6 receptions in 1996).  In total, as a rookie, Marv led the Colts in receiving yards and receptions, with Sean Dawkins and Faulk being the only 2 to have >50 receptions and Dilger being the only other to have >40 receptions and Lamont Warren as the only other to have >20 receptions.  In 1997 (Marv's second year), Sean Dawkins was the only other Colt to have >50 receptions, and Faulk the only to have >40 (Faulk rushed for 1,054 yards that year and the Colts rushed for 1,727 total).  Marv's 3rd year was Faulk's best year in Indy and Faulk led the team in receptions, with only he and Marv hauling in >50 receptions.  Marv's receiving cast included Torrance Small, Jerome Pathon, and the injured EG Green.  The TEs caught a total of 55 passes (Pollard and Dilger combined).  Peyton Manning broke the record for single-season interceptions thrown and the Colts were so good they went 3-13.  In 1999, Marv and Edge were the only 2 to have over 50 receptions, and Marv became a star with a receiving corps so good the next best WR was Terrence Wilkins!   OBJ as a rookie had a team that rushed for 1,603 yards, with 2 players (Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings) who outperformed Faulk in Marv's rookie year.  OBJ had Rueben Randle haul in 71 receptions (more than any Colt in 1996), and Larry Donnell haul in 63 receptions as a tight-end (which would have been second to Marvin as a rookie).  Eli threw for 4,410 yards compared to Jim Harbaugh, Paul Justin and Kerwin Bell combining for 3,544.  Did I mention, Eli is likely headed to the HOF, while Marvin was hauling in balls from that trio?    Marv didn't have Reggie until his 6th year in the league, he didn't have a solid QB until his 4th year in the league (Peyton's second year -- Peyton was very troubled as a rookie QB).  Marv had a worse running game than OBJ's team until his 4th year in the league when Faulk had a stellar season.  Marv's best compliment as WR was either Sean Dawkins, Torrence Small, or Terrence Wilkins until his 6th year, when Reggie had a stunning 27 receptions as a rookie.  In fact, Reggie didn't have over 50 receptions and become a legitimate threat across from Marvin until Marvin's 8th year in the league.   OBJ now has Sterling Sheperd and Victor Cruz alongside him, as very legitimate threats.  The one point I hope I made clear is that your argument holds no validity.  I also would like to point out that at this point in time, there is no way to compare OBJ to Marvin as a career WR.... OBJ has had 2 very good years in this league (a much WR and QB friendly league than when Marv started).... Marv had the best 4, 5,  7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 consecutive seasons out of any WR in NFL history... when OBJ comes close to doing any of that, we can revisit the topic.
  • Welcome New Members

    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
