In Topic: Manning - Record 4th MVP

Very well deserved to the best QB in the league.  Can this guy go a year without breaking a record somewhere?

Has anyone seen the voting stats?  Just curious who else got votes.

"Peyton Manning became the first player to win The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player honor four times. The Indianapolis Colts' sensational quarterback romped to the award Saturday in balloting by 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the league.

He received 39 votes to 7 for Drew Brees of New Orleans. Only four players -- all quarterbacks -- earned votes. The other two were Philip Rivers of San Diego (2) and Brett Favre of Minnesota (1)."

Not really.  Alot of the local media made it a much bigger deal than it really was.  ESPN reported on it because they steal eveything from the local media outlets.  

McNabb was right, but he should have also included himself and some veterans on the team when he made his comments.  

McNabb can make those statements because he is a proven veteran.  He just can't exclude himself.  That's all.

Exactly.  And of course nobody is bringing up the question that McNabb was asked which led to his answer.
"On Sunday, McNabb was asked whether the Eagles showed their youth."

The better story, and I'm surprised it didn't get more coverage other than Angelo talking about it on 610, was the week 16 game against Denver.  On the 4th quarter winning drive, McNabb threw a great pass down the sideline to Maclin who made an even greater catch to stay in bounds.  The catch was reviewed and put the Eagles on the 13yd line.  Well, McNabb didn't know that Westbrook was wired for NFL Films and he told Westy that the throw was actually intended for Avant!  So in reality, McNabb overthrew Avant by 7yds and got lucky that Maclin caught it.  But he lied about it!  Here's the clip - http://www.nfl.com/v...n-27-yard-catch

Why doesn't he get the ball?  He has been very solid in the 2 GAMES that they gave him 20 touches.  

I really want to use him as my flex this week in the playoffs, but not if he's going to get 6 carries!  WTF is Reid doing giving the ball to Weaver & Bunkley (at the GL).  

Why won't they just give this kid a legit shot to be a feature back?  I thought he was Westbrook's replacement?

He still has those damn happy feet and dances to the hole instead of hitting it straight on so until he gets that through his head, he might not get the GL carries as much as the other 2.

I completely disagree with the "tough ######" argument.

I don't beleive in veto's or that trades must be "fair" and I am firmly in the camp that if two owners want to make a decision for their clubs then they should be able to do it.

But I think this board is so anti trade veto that its not thinking about the facts here.

Two owners agreed on a trade.  Material information came out after the fact and BEFORE the trade was processed that completely altered the trade.  It wasn't AFTER the trade went through it was before the pending approval.

This information could not have been known or factored in at all by either trading party.  It wasn't a case of "you knew you were taking a risk".  

It's not like Bowe was nursing an injury then out of nowhere was put in IR.  I would take the other side if those were the facts.  This was an issue that could not have been known at all at the time of the transaction.  And it's not that the trade was processed then the news broke.  The news came out during the approval phase.

The commissioner without question should reverse the trade and explain it to the league why.  This is what commissioners are for....tough decisions that won't make everyone happy but are in the interest of fairness.

Actually, the trade was processed...it was in the approval phase.  2 completely different phases of the trade process.  The 2 owners proposed and accepted the trade, so at this point they are completely out of the process and all that was pending was the league vote.  And that vote is based on fairness of the trade, NOT injuries, suspensions, etc. that come up during this approval time.  So I disagree with your argument.

This trade should 100%, without a doubt, stand.
