The debate on Gillette's Facebook page this week is asking for your opinion on who you think is this year's offensive MVP. Last year we made the case that Drew Brees was most deserving of this honor following his record-breaking season. Unfortunately, I can't legitimately say the same this season and keep a straight face. But who should it be?
Is it Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who has already broken Jerry Rice's single-season record for most yards by a wide receiver? Or how about Peyton Manning, returning from shoulder surgery and single-handedly turning the Broncos into Super Bowl contenders? Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, perhaps, for leading the entire league in rushing yards following major knee surgery?
It's a tough choice this season, no doubt. Often times there is one clear favorite or front runner who stands above everyone else as the obvious choice. But that's not so much the case this year. Even SB Nation football writers were split when they voted for end of the year awards, 12 choosing Manning and 8 going with Peterson.
So who do you think is the NFL's offensive MVP this season?
