Oh hey, it's MVP voting time! Now, a lot of voters will tell you that they really thought hard about who to vote for, and that Drew Brees really made a race of it at the end. But as an unauthorized MVP voter, I don't have to con you like that. I took four seconds to decide on my MVP. It's Rodgers. And I don't care that Drew Brees broke all those records and won't have an MVP to show for it. This isn't Little League. Not everyone can get a trophy. Drew Brees will be just fine, thank you very much. And if anyone gives a vote to Peyton Manning, I will find them and slap them with a rake. Now, on the flipside, I think the race for the league's LEAST VALUABLE PLAYER is far more compelling. After all, Santonio Holmes really made a go of it there at the end, what with all the sulking and quitting. That's the kind of thing you look for in an LVP. And don't forget Stevie Johnson, who got penalized at key moments this season when he wasn't dropping game-winning touchdown passes....
