Kuechly got a few votes for DROY, not surprisingly no votes for TD for Comeback POY.

Nor should he. I love TD, but Manning will probably win it in a clean sweep.

Depends on your opinion of what a CPOY should be about. If it's about who came back from something and played the best, I guess Manning should probably win it. If it's about who overcame the most to come back and play well, it's TD hands down. Obviously more than anything it's "who's the most popular player that came back from something", and because of that it'll be Manning.

Yeah, he just shredded his knee 3 times in 23 months. Peyton had a sore neck & shoulder, what a bad ass!!!

Kuechly will get more love if we continue to win. And if we do the "Rivera quietly took over the defense, started Luke in the middle and turned the team around" is a very good story that will bring the voters attention (regardless if it is true and this was the reason or not).

Kind of like the Lin hype last basketball season. The fact that an easy part of the knicks schedule probably was a larger contributer than Lins play was largely ignored. Why ruin a good story?

I have nothing but praise for Davis, and as a fellow in the "torn ACL playing football" deparment (the only time I can compare myself with the pros :D) I think it is close to a miracle that he can even play. But as far as inpact of actually play I do not think he is worthy of comeback POY consideration.

Sore neck? Dude...

I love TD and coming back from 3 ACL surgeries is historic. But, Manning is an all-time great QB playing in a QB league at 38 years old after major neck surgery and putting up great numbers for a playoff contender. I'm as big of a Panthers and TD homer you'll find, but it's a no brainer.

Peyton was injured, not doubt, but you know it was grossly over-exaggerated by the media. He could have played last season.

Peyton himself said he called Dallas Clark to workout with him on some high school field in private bc he needed to throw to someone he could trust, primarily because he was throwing it into the dirt as a duck about 10 yards in front of him with almost no pop.

It was nerve damage in his neck and right arm. The human body can overcome a lot. Not saying the media didn't make it a big deal, but I am decently sure for 90% of people it'd have been career ending at 38.

Doug Martin for Offensive Rookie of the Year, I'll take it! (Wyche) I hope I get Coach of the Year, no love mid-season, if this team finishes .500, they'd better show some love. Two guys think we make the playoffs, sweet.
