Peyton Wins MVP For 3rd Time
It's the award season and Peyton Manning has nabbed the NFL MVP for the 3rd time in his career. The Colts got off to a slow start as he was slow in coming back from knee issues this off-season, but as Manning warmed up, so did the Colts as they roared back into playoff contention and ultimately one of the best records in the league. Another 12-4 season got the future HOF'er another personal award.
I like the pick over guys like Drew Brees because although both teams were dependent upon their QB's for their success, Manning played his team into the playoffs and I don't care what numbers you put up, your team must be successful to win an MVP award!
Congrats to the Manning family as they seem to take some kind of hardware home each year.
