    MVP: Brees or Favre?

    I think there are 6 guys who you can make a case for NFL MVP this year:

    Chris Johnson
    Brett Favre
    Peyton Manning
    Drew Brees
    Phillip Rivers
    Aaron Rodgers

    Chris Johnson rushed on a team that went 8-8 and missed the playoffs. You could even make a case that he wasn't MVP of his team as the Titans went 8-2 with Vince Young at QB

    Manning led his team to the best record but his stats are the worst of the 5 QB's. Only QB to not have a QB rating of 100 and he threw 16 INT's.

    Rivers is the 3rd best statistical QB of the group and should get more praise then he does

    Rodgers had a great year but don't see him getting it over Favre as his stats aren't quite as good (although pretty similiar) and Favre won the division plus both head to head matchups.

    So that leaves Brees vs Favre. Brees played in one less game and had 1 more TD and 4 more INT's. Who gets your MVP?

    Me? Favre. Not just because of his stats, which are impressive (107 passer rating, 33 TD, 7 INT), but because he did it all his first year with the team. He had little work with timing with his WR's. Also last year the Vikings ranked 17th in total offense and 25th in passing. This year? 5th in total offense and 8th in passing!

    I would say Chris Johnson but the Titans did not have a great season. Personally, I think Manning gets it, followed by Brese and Favre.

    Manning, the Vikings are probably still in the playoffs with T-Jack or Sage. Without Manning, the Colts don't win 6 games.

    Favre still came out with the 2nd highest QB rating in NFL history.

    Why? I think every guy on the list is worthy of MVP, but when I look at what the guy means to the team in terms of running the offense, providing momentum to the defense, getting in the head(s) of defenses, and the overall management of a game I have to go with Peyton. All of these teams would obviously be diminished without each of these respected guys not on the team, but I think Peyton would be missed the most.

    Very true, but if you go by the most valuable to their team, I think you still have to go with Peyton or CJ.

    Favre the last 4 weeks..... 7 TD's vs 2 INT's. Hasn't really ****** anything down his leg.

    If you look at Stats Peyton isn't a top 5 candidate

    Re: MVP: Brees or Favre?

    This question looks like a best QB or running back question. Favre is 3rd on his team for MVP. Jarred Allen and Adrian peterson are before him.
    On the Packers Charles Woodson is the MVP.

    You guys look like your debating the Heisman instead of the Best player and MVP.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Favre is far and away the MVP of the Vikings. The Vikings had AP last year and had the 17th rated offense. This year they are 5th.

    Re: MVP: Brees or Favre?

    Adrian Peterson is not even close this season. Allen, maybe. But you're kidding yourself, or you're a Favre hater if you can't see he is the glue on this year's team. I wasn't a fan of Favre coming to the Vikes, but I can admit that he has been everything he needed to be this season. Favre has made Rice, Harvin, Shancoe all better than any other QB could have. They'll all benefit from their exposure to him.

    Not to mention, he's had his best season as a 40yr old.
