I am going to have to BUY Peyton Manning as my 2012 NFL MVP. This season he has put himself right back in that best NFL QB conversation. I am buying him as my pick for a few reasons. The first reason is that the Denver Broncos have surprised a lot of people with their 10-3 record so far this season. They have won 8 games in a row due to Peyton playing out of his mind. Coming into this season there were a lot of questions and concerns with this team and Manning's health. The Broncos have had some success and even got a playoff win with Tim Tebow at quarterback last season. However, the team decided to get rid of Tebow and go in another direction with the signing of Peyton Manning. Manning came off of neck surgery which had a potential to end his NFL career. To say that expectations for this team were uncertain would be an understatement. This team is surprising the NFL right now and the sports world. The next reason would have to be Manning's statistics so far this season. Through twelve games played he has thrown for 26 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He has also thrown for 3,260 yards so far this year. Not too shabby for a guy coming off of neck surgery. The third and last reason is that the Denver Broncos are a legit Super Bowl contender with Peyton Manning at quarterback. Take a look at his receiving core. These guys are young and hungry. But there are no elite receivers out there. Manning is still getting the job done despite of this. Let's see how the rest of the season pans out to see if he will win the MVP award. I'm definitely BUYING him as my pick!
