As the NFL regular-season winds down, talk about the NFL MVP award is becoming a hotter and hotter topic. – – – No worries, the Sportsguy has you covered with his analysis and insight on the NFL MVP:
Making a case for Calvin Johnson: Johnson did it in what was an unusual “Monday Night Football game” on a Saturday night; by breaking NFL Hall Of Fame wide-receiver, Jerry Rice’s record for the most receiving yards in a single-season; congratulations to Johnson, though it should be noted that he only has 5 touchdowns on the season. – – – Maybe it would be enjoyable for Johnson, and Lions’ fans if the team had at least a winning-record with a chance for them to go to the playoffs. Detroit may not have the playoffs to look forward to, but.. hey… stats aren’t a bad consolation prize, either, you know.
Making a Case for Adrian Peterson: Peterson, to put it simply plays on a team with a crappy quarterback who is married to a hot reporter. – — The former OU Sooner has run for 1812 yards on the season, along with 11 touchdowns on the season. Though at a different position, Peterson still has 6 more touchdowns than Johnson, that could unfairly be the deciding factor in all this MVP talk.
