What is an MVP?

 

I don’t know how the league determines who receives the MVP award. But if it goes by its name then it should go to the player who is most valued by their team… (Obviously)

 

Example:

 

“(Player A) is more valuable to the (Team A) then (Player B) is valuable to the (Team B).”

 

“Player A” should receive the Award  (even if “Player B” has better stats or a bigger contract then “Player A”) simply because “Player A” is still more valuable to his team.  

 

Is Tom ‘Estragon’ Brady the most valuable player on the Patriots? He is a heck of a player, but is he the most valued? It seems that whenever “Professionals” are discussing who deserves the MVP they talk about stats.

 

Tom Brady has a 21 touchdowns to 0 interceptions streak, He leads the league in QB rating, and has the least amount of interceptions.”

 

Bravo. If he was competing for the Heisman, then Brady is a sure pick, but the MVP isn’t about stats, it’s about what kind of value they bring to their team.

 

Same goes for Philip Rivers. Stats don’t make an MVP.

 

Michael Vick is truly a beast. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more talented and versatile quarterback, but I think the Eagles would have similar success with Kolb.

 

So, in my opinion it comes down to Matt Ryan and Matt Cassel.

 

They don’t’ have great stats, they don’t have big names, they haven’t won super bowls, and they aren’t the face of any popular company (Uggs, Sony, etc.) But in my opinion, they are valued by their team more then any other player is valued by theirs’.

 

Yes, I’m probably a little bias, but hey; If Matt Cassel leads this team to the playoffs, he deserves the MVP award. And if he doesn’t get it, then I would strongly suggest that the NFL changes the name of the award from ‘Most Valuable Player’, to… ‘(Insert name of random NFL legend here)’
