    The usual suspects, Peyton, Brady, Tomlinson, et. al. remain the usual suspects.
    Just to stir the pot, probably Vick has moved into "others receiving votes" territory the past two weeks.

    Tom Brady -- 14 TD passes (third in the league), four INTs (tied for fewest in league), all while throwing to Ben Watson, Doug Gabriel, Reche Caldwell, and Troy Brown.

    For all the talk about the system in New England, guess what? Tom Brady is the system. And the MVP.

    If a Bears player wins NFL MVP, it would have to be a defensive player, right? I know the Bears' offense has been impressive (except for the Arizona game), but here's the rest of the Bears' schedule. I think the defense, if it can stay strong against the Giants and Patriots and maintain what it has accomplished so far, should have an MVP candidate on defense.

    Sun 11/19 at NY Jets

    And this Bears talk is coming from a Vikings fan :(

    Just a small correction....Peyton Manning has two interceptions this season (15 TDs), so Brady can't be tied for fewest INTs in the league with four.

    Wow, the love for Donovan "Pass at the Feet" McNabb sure died down over the course of two pages, didn't it? ::)

    I've seen a lot of him, and I just don't see the sentiment for him being one of the great ones.

    The Patriots and Colts play each other next week. Either Brady or Manning will get a slight edge over the other based on how they play and the outcome of that game.

    For as much as Manning passes, he has only two picks in 245 attempts. Brady's now got four picks in 232 attempts. Brady's completion percentage is also just 58.2 percent, compared to 66.5 percent for Manning.

    That said, if Brady wins next week, he's got the edge.

    And Claws is correct, it would be foolish not to mention Urlacher in this discussion.

    The thing is, the emergence of Grossman has turned the Bears into a serious Super Bowl contender.

    If forced to vote today ...
    Tiki (though he'll need a few scores to warrant actual consideration)

    Darrent Williams just called. He says it's Manning ... or Reggie Wayne.

    On the road at Giants, Pats and Rams should be interesting games, but the rest of the schedule is very weak

    Haha that was brutal. I almost felt bad for how helpless he was out there on Wayne.
