Claim: Chad Pennington Is the NFL MVP, Only Lemmings Pick Peyton Manning

When the sportswriters’ votes are counted and the NFL MVP is announced, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning will almost certainly get the award.

But one sportswriter in Miami thinks it’s his hometown team’s quarterback who deserves the MVP award — and he doesn’t think highly of his colleagues for failing to see that the correct vote would go to Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington. Greg Cote writes in the Miami Herald:
Chad Pennington, the Dolphins’ quarterback, should be the NFL’s Most Valuable Player for 2008. …
This isn’t to say Pennington win MVP honors. He won’t. The Colts’ Peyton Manning probably will win. He has the name and pedigree. He is the predictable, safe pick, and the football writers who vote are a march of lemmings.
Cote goes on to make his case for Pennington, and it’s not a bad case. Pennington’s stats are, after all, fairly comparable to Manning’s this year — although Pennington got the advantage of playing against a lot of weak defenses.

But my vote would go to Manning. I just think that, over the course of 16 games, no player has been as valuable to his team as Manning has been to the Colts. If that makes me a lemming, so be it.
