    Michael Vick is the MVP. If he were playing with a competent team, he would be unstoppable, but it takes 11 players on the opposing team AND 10 players on his team to stop him.

    It's December, close enough to reasonably discuss MVP candidates.

    LT might be the best player in the league, but Drew Brees might be the most valuable. Aaron Brooks wouldn't have been able to do this.

    Sorry Oz, when you score 29 TDs in 13 (!!!!) games, you're MVP.

    Any other year and Brees wins it going away, but LT2's #s are so out-of-whack that it's going to be impossible to ignore him.

    Unless Rex Grossman wins his final four games. :D

    I talked to BYH about this last night. LT2 is the MVP. Brees is 1A. Aaron Brooks just edged out Mike Vanderjagt for last place.

    Edited because I fail at remembering draft-day trades.

    The Chargers always had that 1st pick in the second round.

    Thing is, that's the fourth time the record's been broken since 2000. I hate to belittle the accomplishment, but it has been done quite often this decade already, and it would be five times if you went back to 1995.

    Brees made a huge impact on the Saints. First year on a new team, running a new offense for a first-year coach with not near the weapons as the Chargers, it's amazing that he could challenge Dan Marino's mark.

    And of course win all the while.

    What does that last line mean?

    He didn't just rack up huge numbers for a losing team in meaningless games. He did it helping a team win games.
  11. That's the understatement of the year. Brooks can't even figure out how to throw the ball forward.
