Wickett's World - 2012 NFL MVP

Wickett's World - 2012 NFL MVP
 
I don't get a vote, but here's my top 5 for the 2012 NFL MVP.
 
1) MVP - Adrian Peterson - Minnesota Vikings. He's been there ALL YEAR for a team that really doesn't have much of a passing game or a dominent defense. Fell 9 yards shy of ED's record and did a lot of damage when it counted...all while teams focused on HIM. 
 
2) Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers. Led the NFL in QB rating (108.0). top 5 in TDs & Completion %, 8th in Yardage and only 8 INT's...all while leading the league in times sacked and having the most drops by a receiving corp IN THE NFL. Imagine if his OL was mediocre.
 
3) Calvin Johnson - Detroit Lions. Broke the single season receiving yardage record held by Jerry Rice since 1995. Oh, and he did it in 1 less game. QUICK!! Name another Lions wide receiver. Nope, Herman Moore is gone. And Matt Stafforrd was AWFUL in 2012 (qb rating under 80)
 
4) Tom Brady - New England Patriots. He's Tom Brady. Figure it out.  
 
5) Peyton Manning - Denver Broncos. Denver head coach John Fox basically said, "Peyton-do what you gotta do"....and Peyton did. Taught, installed, grew and executed a new offense in the Mile High City. Why don't i have him higher? Well...not to start a fight...but remember the Tebow haters? They all said the D carried Lefty Jesus to the playoffs...and if I'm not mistaken, Denver's D is pretty good again. (#2 in the NFL in total D)

How's your ballot look compared to mine??

cheers...

Pretty spot on Wickett. ADP is clearly #1 and Rodgers clearly #2 in my book. After that, it really doesn't matter. Not sure if I'd have Calvin 3. He's obviously the best WR in the game, but what value did he bring? James Jones scored almost 3 times as many TD's. It's easy to pile up numbers when you're teams losing and all passes go your direction. Only 5 TD's and 4 wins does not spell MVP candidate to me...record or not. Brady and Manning are a coin flip, but both far behind ADP and Rodgers in my book.

Wickett, congrats on the new contract but dude really! AP is the must be consensus MVP. AP does it with each team scheming to stop him, and still he is number two all time in yards rushed. After that anything but Peyton is nuts, he took a dormant offense and brought it back to life, secured home field while playing in a division as weak as the AFC East. After AP and Peyton it doesnt matter who is in the conversation, they dont belong there.
