In recent weeks, we've had debates on the best nicknames in the league and which coach you'd like leading your team into the playoffs. This week's debate question: Who is your offensive MVP, and why?
I think that there are a couple of excellent answers, depending on how you define the term 'Most Valuable Player'. Unlike the other debates, where I gave you a lot of options in the poll, you get three for this one: Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson, and other. If you pick other, I'd love to hear your case in the comments, because I'm struggling to manufacture a case for anyone else.
Peterson is probably not going to break the all-time single season rushing yards record this weekend (I hope), but he seems like a good bet to get over 2,000 yards for the year, and there's no question that the Vikings would be nowhere near playoff contention if they had an average, replacement-level running back. The Broncos are in a similar situation with Peyton Manning, who has completely transformed the Broncos while having an absolutely stellar season. However, their defense is stronger than Minnesota's, and they managed a win in the playoffs last year with a joke of a quarterback.
I'm not convinced either way, so I'd love to hear everyone's case about why one of Manning or Peterson deserves the MVP award over the other.
