    My ballot would go:

    1. Peyton Manning
    2. LaDanian Tomlinson
    3. Tom Brady
    4. Rex Grossman
    5. Larry Johnson (KC is looking pretty good as a wildcard right about now)
    31,254,894. Drew Bledsoe

    Reggie Wayne owns the Broncos. Two years ago in the playoffs, he lit them up with 200-plus yards and a couple of scores. After the game, Roc Alexander, whom I believe was on the field Sunday as a nickel back, was so distraught he wouldn't even look at reporters, much less talk to them.

    Went the same way as McNabb's love. Opinions change with performance from week to week.

    Manning, Brady or LT right now. As much as I love what Grossman's done, people won't be able to look past the impact of the defense.

    Why does the Denver defense give Brady fits, yet is routinely shredded by Manning? Their abilities are the same. They both lead productive and creative offenses. How come?

    I'm probably oversimplifying this, but the one key in all of Indy's routs of the Broncos, IIRC, has been Reggie Wayne. He singlehandedly ran Roc Alexander out of town (10-221-1) and may well have just caught another 20-yarder against Darrent Williams (10-138-3).

    The Patriots, OTOH, had who exactly at WR when they played Denver earlier this year? You have to remember, it was Week 3 and Brady was running with guys he seemed uncomfortable with. With Bailey often locking down the other team's No. 1 receiver, you've got to be able to make plays to secondary receivers and TEs. And your TEs better be quick, because Denver's LBs have ridiculous speed.

    If Brady continues to grow more comfortable with his wideouts (Monday night being an example), you're looking at a tossup come playoff time if the teams meet. The trick is, because Denver won the earlier meeting, they may be able to steal home field from the Pats. That could be a difference.

    //still wishes shanahan would have gone for it on 4th down instead of taking the 3 and giving the Colts the ball back

    Dennis Green says Chicago's defense shouldn't have an MVP candidate ... but then he let them off the hook!!!

    It's probably safe to cross that name off the list at the moment.

    when you write almost 11,000 posts, not every one of them will be a winner.

    Let the talk begin now without any Bears players in the MVP discussion.
