MVP to me means the player where the team would be lost without. My pick for that is Michael Turner. Without him the Falcons are probably 5-11 6-10. Without Deangelo Williams the Panthers are still 8-8 9-7 team. (Yes i am saying Carolina has a better team lol) Lately they've gotten away from the meaning of the award and given it to the player with the best stats COUGH Tom Brady.
I don't believe that Turner was the reason for the Falcons successful turnaround this year because I think Matt Ryan is responsible for that. Matt Ryan put up a QB rating this season of 87.7 which put him 11th in the league. Jake's 84.7 rating has him at 18th. More games were won in the hands of Matt Ryan as opposed to Michael Turner this season. You cannot say the same thing about Jake Delhomme. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart [Peanut Butter and Jelly] bailed him out and securing wins that should've been losses. Chicago, Arizona, Oakland, Detroit, etc. were games that without our rushing attack would've been disastrous losses for us. Our rushing attack is lead by DeAngelo which should make him leading candidate for the MVP race.
