    OFFICIAL JI POLL: Who is your 2012 NFL MVP?

    Please vote and feel free to leave your reasons.

    I think Manning will get it but I think Peterson should get it. He dragged that team to the playoffs... Manning took a playoff team and made them better but he didn't have the best year for a qb. He's a sentimental favorite.

    I think it will be a situation like in 2003 when McNair and Manning (I think?) were Co-MVP's - the same will happen this year with Manning and Peterson - as it should be. There are endless arguments to each side at this point.

    I think Peterson should win it but it will be Rodgers again. His numbers are better then Manning and he did it with less IMO. He is groomed to be the new poster boy for the NFL.

    I voted for Peyton. He made that whole team play better. It's like having a super coach and QB on the field at the same time. He calls out his receivers when the run the wrong routes, call the right plays for the defenses etc. He is also under a recuperative spinal surgery where they took a bone from his hip and place it in his spine. Unbelievable guy and very inspirational.

    I also like the fact that during Katrina he was passing out care packages to the folks there. Great human being too.

    peyton. he proved he could change teams and make his new team even better than it was. sure the broncos have a really good defense but their offense wasn't any great shakes last season even outside of tebow. and manning is now on a team that plays outside where the weather can be nasty.

    Tough call.

    Both deserve it and both are immensely important to their teams.

    I picked Manning because with him Denver is the best team in the league IMO.

    But there are a dozen reasons why Peterson should get it.

    You can't go wrong with either guy.

    Lets just have AFC and NFC MVPs this year.

    The Vikings without AP don't sniff the playoffs. The Broncos made the playoffs without a QB last season. Manning should get comeback player of the year, not MVP.

    There is no legit argument against this post.

    I voted for Other.

    Mark Sanchez - clearly Mr Butt Fumble helped other teams win so many games this year he deserves some award.

    +1

    I gave Manning NO shot, and I'm greatly surprised how well he did, but I'll go with AP too, for obvious reasons.

    Either one could get MVP or comeback player. I think AP should get MVP but I'm not taking anything away from Manning. They both overcame heavy odds. Good on both of 'em.

    AP. surgery aside, he almost broke Dikersons record in a league dominated by passing.

    It's because defenses are geared up to defend the pass the he was able to get this close.

    A vote for anyone other than All Day is bad and you should feel bad.

    I voted for Peyton. But would not be surprised if AP won it.

    TWO HOF bound players...coming back from serious injuries. And playing at such a high level.

    Why not make them Co-MVP's? I'd go for that.

    Because Peyton isn't the MVP. Peyton plays in a weak division that's in a weak conference with a team that made the playoffs without him a year before. He doesn't deserve it. AD, on the other hand, has single-handedly carried the terribad Vikings into the postseason.

    The only reason Peyton is really in consideration is because A) He's a QB, B) He's an ELITE QB, and C) He's coming off a high-profile injury. Give him comeback player of the year, he deserves that. But, MVP? lol, put AD's name on it and call it good.

    Yea, teams were really gearing up to defend the pass in fear of the almighty.....Christian Ponder.

    That team is ALL Adrian, ALL DAY. Ponder scares absolutely nobody, so teams focus in solely on AD.

    That's hysterical, if you watched any Vikings games you know that's a joke. The whole Defensive game plan was to make them pass, especially when Harvin was out
