He definitely will get it from the team, no doubt. I would love for him to get it from the league. And he should because no one had ever come back from those 3 surgeries. I'm afraid though that with Peyton lighting up the airways, he will win CPOTY. Peterson is nothing special. :nurse:

The NFL won't show him any love this year as far as awards go, but that's not why TD kept fighting. The most we can do as fans is give him the respect and support he deserves. I'm sure that makes it worthwhile for him.

A Lombardi trophy one of these days would be cool, too.

I think Davis deserves it for all he has been through, but Manning will win it and also is deserving. AP doesn't qualify in my mind, he didn't miss extended time for his injury.

TD is doing something no other player has every done before. AP shouldn't be considered because he played 12 games last season and had all offseason to recover. Yes it was a fast recovery but I don't know the extent of how bad his acl was injured.

Manning I really think was more about his contract situation and the Colts wanting to tank to get luck. Manning I bet you could have played but it would have taken the Colts out of the Luck race. I doubt the colts wanted to pay a 36 year old Manning 100mill when they could have Luck for 25 and use the other 75mill in other areas.

Not trying to be a homer but if TD plays all 16 games he should be the unanimous choice.

He deserves it, but he has no shot.

Too much Peyton love out there. Would be fun if TD could get a couple of sacks, an int, and a fumble recovery against Peyton. How sweet to think about.

Manning will win it because he is a quarterback and quarterbacks get more attention and kudos than linebackers.

It is always sweet to think about TD blowing someone up. Can't wait to see the look on John Fox's face when TD dominates the Broncos.

TD definetly deserve it after three consecutive ACL but no matter what, you can't beat Peyton.

Hell even Peyton's name was considered one of the runner up for MVP last year when he didn't even play a single snap.

He deserves it more than lego neck. AP is a freak but doesn't deserve it.
