    Peyton Manning, 39½ votes. Drew Brees gets 7½ votes.

    Of more interest is this tidbit: if you're not a quarterback, you don't get a vote this year. Philip Rivers got 2 votes and Brett Favre 1.

    First player to win it 4 times.

    Not bad for a guy that can't win the big one.

    Only surprise to me is that it wasn't unanimous. No one is close to Manning in terrms of value to a team at this point. Look at what the Colts did without him in the second half of the past 2 meaningless games. And seven fourth quarter comeback victories in one season (unprecedented) ain't chopped liver.

    Yeah I was going to say the same thing -- if voters weren't convinced that it was Manning in the first 14 games, games 15 and 16 should have sealed the deal because it is clear without him they are not likely even a playoff team.

    his team got off to a terrible start and wasn't near the playoffs but if he broke the record would Johnson get it. it wasn't like he just missed it but just a hypothetical if he sets the record for a non-playoff team would that warrant MVP? i would've had it Manning, Brees, Johnson.

    The way the game is played in the NFL circa 2009-10, it has to go to a QB.

    Chris Johnson apparently thought he was deserving. From Twitter:

    "Do anybody got payton address I got to go get my award"

    Honestly, he wasn't even the MVP of his own team....

    I mean, what was the major difference between 0-5 and 8-3?

    Yep, that's right a quarterback change.....

    As a huge Saints fan who suffered through the likes of John Fourcade, Wade Wilson and smilin' Aaron Brooks before Drew Brees hit town, I say this:

    Peyton was the correct choice this year, without a doubt.

    That does not mean Johnson wasn't more valuable to the Titans. It means the quarterback position was no longer holding the team back.
