Seems like the award has to go to a QB. Somehow, Jerry Rice wasn't good enough to win one.
I doubt any of the RB's will win it (but who would be considered the most valuable RB anyway: Foster, AP, Marshawn, Martin.... that's a good debate itself).
So as of this moment, and of course a lot will change tomorrow as there are some big battles, but here's your contenders:
Robert Griffin III
Anyone who says Passer Rating is worthless must think this is a coincidence below:
- Rodgers 107.3
- Manning 106.2
- Brady 105.0
- Griffin 104.6
Brees is #7 at 99.8.
Alex Smith and Big Ben are #5 & #6 with 104.1 & 100.0.
Matt Ryan, Josh Freeman, Matt Schaub are the next 3 and all arel 94.something.
Passing TDs are:
- Brees 28
- Rodgers 27
- Manning 24
- Brady 24
- Freeman 21
- Dalton 20
- Ryan 20
Passing Yardage is the one (not passer rating) that is skewed as #1 & #4 are Stafford & Romo averaging 311.7 & 305.2 yards per game. Carson Palmer is ahead of both Peyton Manning & Rodgers.
Don't forget, RG3 has 642 yards rushing, and 6 TD runs.
His TD/Int ratio is 4/1.
Andrew Luck, FWIW, is 1/1.
Blaine Gabbert is 3/2.
So what does your ballot look like here, fairly.
I got it:
Big Ben would have been right there had he not gotten obtained by me in Fantasy Football & thus jinx-injured.
