Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning won his fourth NFL MVP award last night by a landslide. Manning won the award for the second straight season and received a massive 39 1/2 votes. The only other players to earn votes this year were all quarterbacks with New Orlean Saints quarterback Drew Brees coming in second (7 1/2 votes), San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers (2 votes) in third and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre in fourth (1 vote). The 33-year-old has started every game in his career and has also won the award in 2003, 2004 and 2008, breaking the tie with Favre at three MVPs. When people think of MVP awards they immediately think of the best statistical, or most talented players but Peyton Manning to me was the NFL's Most Valuable Player. He is the heart and soul of the Colts organisation and has proven time and time again that he can win games by himself and that when he is out of the line up the team is a shell of itself. Manning threw for 4,500 yards and 33 touchdowns this season despite having a new head coach, losing star receiver Marvin Harrison and working with two rookie wide receivers Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon. I am a bit shocked that Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson didn't at least get one vote but I guess quarterback Vince Young had too much of an impact this year to make Johnson the most valuable on his team.
