    Nobody deserves it more than this guy. He is just the class of the league.

    A humble superstar... something I thought was an oxymora these days. Heck this team is loaded with them.

    After the season LT has had, he deserved this award and thank god that he did.


    LT=MVP= Correct decision

    Brees= MVP= Wrong decision

    Peter King's opinions are usually well received by Charger fans. I don't blame Peter King for choosing Brees as his MVP, however, I would just say that his definition of MVP is different than what a lot of people perceive.

    In a league that promotes that no player is greater than the team, it only makes sense that the guy with the best overall performance for the season wins the award. Tomlinson had a season unlike any other. If you want to pick most valuable player in terms of the "where would my team be without me award," how about Tom Brady or Peyton Manning? Both teams would certainly not be in playoff contention (in my opinion), just like the saints wouldn't. With that said, it's hard to say that LT wouldn't have that same impact, since teams gameplan to stop him, and yet he still gets his business done.

    The only thing I have to say about this is, Brees had the Katrina thing working in his favor. Plus he had the shoulder injury going to a team that was just terrible.

    IF he would of gotten it, I would of been pissed, but thats because I was pulling for LT!

    The MVP is just like the heisman, it is as much about how your team through out the season, as it is your overall stats! I mean look at Troy Smith, he had less passing yards than 33 QB's in the nation, also Brady Quinn had better overall #'s but because his team wasnt 12-0 he didnt win! My point is SD had the best record in the league, We have seen people before do what Drew Brees did this year before and not win the MVP! We have never seen what LT did this year! It was a well deserved, award for the humble one!

    44 out of 50 votes! That's 88%.
    :ABQ2: :ABQ1:


    Sooo, no Co-MVP then? :icon_tease:

    Gee, I guess Chris Mortenson was wrong when he said several weeks ago that the "feeling" he got was that the vote was going to be much closer than expected. :icon_rofl:

    Should definitely have been unanimous. Two Indy homers & four bleeding hearts.

    I am actually very surprised Peter King didn't vote for Tom Brady. He actually had him third in his list for MVP. This guy has a serious love affair with Brady. He doesn't even make the probowl but he is third on his list for MVP. WTF. His Beantown bias is unreal.

    Tom Brady was anointed "the next Joe Montana" after '04, so for the rest of his career people like King are going to ignore it when Brady is playing on a mediocre offense and pretend a QB can single-handedly win games. They forget that even the great Joe Montana was on a great offense. Not a good offense. A great one.
