Which it shouldn't have if you consider the true "spirit" of the award.

I mean I'm not completely sold on the fact that either one (Rodgers or Brees) was truely the leagues MVP - I'd have to give it some more thought to come up with a better candidate, but if you consider - in relative terms - who was the most valuable player to their particular team, it might not be either of those two.

If Brees isn't the quarterback, you really think any other player could offset that AWFUL defensive effort this season...

Am a Saints fan...

Am a Brees fan...

Am an honest enough critic though of both to say their not getting it done if that's the case...

The Saints results coupled with that last Sunday when Matt Flynn went off made a very sound, convincing argument that Brees was the Most Valuable Player to his team...

Besides, who has a better Pre-Game Ritual of getting his teammates pumped up?

Of all the great qualities of Brees the one they didn't seem to take into consideration was his most important talent. His leadership.

I'll be honest, I think Sproles should have gotten the nod. He played several positions and excelled in all of them on a brand new team, learning a whole new system. The only mistake he made was the fumble in the playoffs. Then factor in his size, he should not be able to do those things..it's truly remarkable IMO.

I don't view the award as the "most valuable to their own team", I view it as the most valuable player to the NFL, or the best player in the league that year.

The whole argument about how a specific team would do without that player is a weak argument IMO.

Couldn't agree more! 2 votes is a slap in the face of Brees. Just goes to show that breaking records mean nothing. I would have thought that would have at least made it a closer margin. This is what disappoints me the most. I know it don't really matter but I know it matters to Brees.

We thought we just saw a great year from Brees. I am predicting a better one next year. This is the type of stuff that drives a person to prove they are the best.
