P Manning or A Peterson?

Who's your pick for comeback player of the year?

Both are having great years. But I'm going w Adrian Peterson. I know what it's like to go through reconstructive knee surgery, and for him to come back this fast and this strong in such a short amount of time is superhuman. True definition of Beast.

AP, hands down. I can't stand the other winney spoiled brat. Ever since he threw a tantrum and stormed off the field after the superbowl and didn't shake Drew's hand I havent liked him.

Peterson. He's a freak of nature. What he's done this year is remarkable. Forget about Comeback Player of Year... he may wind up being the MVP of the league when he breaks Dickerson's record.

Re: P Manning or A Peterson?

I gave this some serious thought a few weeks ago before deciding on Adrian Peterson, all day, . The injuries to both players are significant and for the life of me, I can't figure why Manning chooses to play after a neck injury, but he's having a great year.

The deciding factor (for me) was the impact of each player's individual contribution to their team. Manning has returned to his old form and is leading the Broncos to another Division Championship. Peterson breathed life into a sputtering Vikings offense. Without Manning, the Broncos are still probably a .500 team. Peterson is the Vikings offense, without him, they return to the basement of the NFC North.

I can also see them spreading the awards around ... Peterson getting MVP of the league, Peyton getting Comeback Player of the Year, or if vice versa if Manning would win a SuperBowl. They both deserve to have their accomplishments recognized.

Of course, you'll have to make room for Calvin in there somewhere when he breaks Jerry Rice's record, .

You would think any player breaking total yards records in a season would be a lock to win the MVP.
Well I did till last year when Drew and Sproles where disgracefully never mention for breaking long standing records.

I'm not still bitter

Without a doubt, Jonathan Vilma. He came back from a season long suspension, to serve a zero game suspension. Well done, Jon.

But seriously, Adrian Peterson. I don't like giving him credit, because I pretty much abhor the entire Vikings organization. He has in fact earned it, though.

I like them both, but I am going with Peyton. One, his injury was so bad he missed an entire year then had to come back and do it with an entirely diffrent team.

I definitely agree with this. I hope it happens. They both are very deserving.
