Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are proof that the NFL will always have a place for statue QBs. An accurate deep passer who can read defenses is a valuable asset.
There are other ways to play the game though. Cam Newton's time of possession approach is also very valuable. His ability to convert third and short and 4th and short and to punch in two point conversions is huge.
Still, it's hard to take people seriously who mention Russell Wilson and Cam as MVP candidates when Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are setting records. If the Broncos break the scoring record and Peyton breaks the TD record, how can you argue with that in terms of MVP candidates?
So you're basically saying that we should continually reward Vets who should be doing what Peyton, Tom, and Drew at their level; throwing to their young Receivers who have a whole lot more pressure on them to catch them damn balls, so their Vet QBs can look good and pad their stats. But when young players like Cam take a dysfynctionally broken team like the Panther, to almost the same record, as Peyton did when he won his first MVP, isn't good enough.
I was under the impression that an MVP meant Most Valuable Player. Not QB with the most TDs and passing yardages? What am I missing?
I always felt highly insulted when other sports fans say that football fans are not the smartest bunch. I am seriously beginning to swallow my pride and believe them.
