Peyton Manning voted NFL MVP

Omaha Manning Mania Football AP

As expected, there wasn’t much drama when it came to the winner of the 2013 Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player Award.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has garnered MVP honors from the AP, the media organization and the NFL announced Saturday night.

For Manning, it’s an NFL-record fifth time he has captured the AP MVP award.

According to the AP, Manning received 49-of-50 votes for MVP, with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady getting the lone non-Manning vote.

Manning broke league single-season yardage (5,477) and passing touchdown (55) records in the regular season, then led Denver to postseason wins against San Diego and New England to earn a berth in Super Bowl XLVIII, which kicks off Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Eastern at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Manning also garnered 2013 Offensive Player of the Year honors from the AP.

    Congratulations Mr. Manning but I don’t see how that’ll help him against a whole TEAM of SB hungry Seahawks.

    GOHAWKS!!!

    Viking trolls will say devin hester 0.5 corduroy patterson should have won it like rookie of the year.

  5. 1pwrightt says: Feb 1, 2014 8:58 PM

    Well deserved. You don’t see Payton yelling, screaming, acting like a fool. What you see is someone who plays the Quarterback position with greatness.

  6. elwaysagenius says: Feb 1, 2014 8:58 PM

    Guy who voted Brady is a joke and should have his voting privilege revoked. Wreaks of attention like last years NBA MVP vote

  7. brazzz01 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:00 PM

    And Tom Brady is still the only unanimous MVP in league history.

    #trollololol

  8. dctitanfan says: Feb 1, 2014 9:01 PM

    Manning is the best ever. Regardless of tomorrow.
    No one else has 4 mvps.
    He has 5, Brady 2.

  9. lunt101 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:02 PM

    LOL @ Brady vote. Jim Miller is a piece of work.

  10. dcpatfan says: Feb 1, 2014 9:02 PM

    heartland heartthrob andgreatest regular season QB in NFL history….
    but once again fell short of TB12 and his “unanimous” vote.

  11. wwwmattcom says: Feb 1, 2014 9:02 PM

    I would say their (assocaited press) MVPVR (most valuable player voter rating) would be in the mid to low 30’s. This one they got right, c’mon, 8 year olds know this much.

  12. thealmightybigblue says: Feb 1, 2014 9:03 PM

    Lol of course Brady is the lone non manning vote.

  13. jason9696 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:03 PM

    He’s the best there ever was whether the Broncos beat the Shehawks tomorrow or not.

  14. brazzz01 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:03 PM

    That’s a bad omen for the Broncos.

    The Curse of the MVP… no-one has ever won a Super Bowl in the same year.

    Ap=2014 MVP

  17. qdog112 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:06 PM

    Congats Peyton !!! Those “cotton candy stats” won’t help tomorrow. There will be no padding of the stats in the Super Bowl, unless you count the 4 ints to be racked up by the Hawks.

    Before it’s over, we won’t know if it’s Eli or Peyton throwing to the white shirts.

    ======================================
    And Manning increases his record to 5 while Brady still has 2.

  19. winstonjed44 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:06 PM

    Should have been unanimous. Arguably the greatest regular season ever by a QB, and greatest offensive season ever orchestrated by Peyton.

  20. brazzz01 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:06 PM

    This makes Brady’s 2011 UNANIMOUS MVP a remarkable accomplishment.

    There almost always will always be a dissenting vote (Vick in 2004, Favre in 2007, Brady this year). I guess nobody found a reason not to vote for Brady in 2011….

  21. rubenxx7 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:07 PM

    Peyton is not the best ever. Even if he wins tomorrow

  22. spoilerfutbol says: Feb 1, 2014 9:08 PM

    A troll voted for favre in 2007 and for Brady in 2013, who is he?

    And this is simply a false statement. I know Kurt Warner did it in 99 and pretty sure Montana did it too.

    There have been many MVPs that won the Super Bowl

    MVP = Super Bowl Consolation Prize

    Go Hawks!

  27. The League's Crusade Against The Steelers Continues says: Feb 1, 2014 9:14 PM

    Say what you want, we hate on most people, but it is impossible to hate on Manning. He truly is the best quarterback to play the game.

    I looked it up. My bad, you are correct.

    I can’t believe I forgot Terrell Davis and Steve Young did it too…

  30. brazzz01 says: Feb 1, 2014 9:18 PM

    In all seriousness… I would have voted for Manning too. Can’t argue with the results and the records.

    But there is a sensible and objective argument to be made that would convince at least 1 voter to vote for Brady. Can’t say the same about Vick in 04 and Favre in 07. Those were head scratchers.

  31. stagedoorjohnny says: Feb 1, 2014 9:22 PM

    Congrats Manning.
    Now tell us what defenses you faced this year to get this award?

    I thought so.

  32. The League's Crusade Against The Steelers Continues says: Feb 1, 2014 9:24 PM

    Manning is the definition of class and professionalism in a football uniform and outside. His work ethic is unmatched. His drive for the game is astounding, even at his age he’s like a kid. It has been a pleasure watching him on Sundays. One day we will look back and think about these times. He’s a special player to say the absolute least.

  33. kneelbeforesod says: Feb 1, 2014 9:27 PM

    Trent Richardson voted NFL LVP.

  34. moerawn says: Feb 1, 2014 9:29 PM

    Manning is a throwback to the days of Staubach and Unitas.

    Lets see how great manning is tomorrow when he throws 2 ints.

  37. prgsdw says: Feb 1, 2014 9:33 PM

    Yea, he beat Romo and the Cowboys by 3, must be MVP. LOL.

    Chiefs. Twice. Go home now. Manning should of won it last year too. No one has ever been more valuable whichever team hes played for

  39. rakefighter says: Feb 1, 2014 9:35 PM

    Not that 49 votes wasn’t enough, but what was Jim Miller thinking? I know Miller got his SB ring as a back up the Brady. A bit of the homerism?

    Well deserved PMFM

  40. beauregard says: Feb 1, 2014 9:38 PM

    Five times the most valuable player in the entire league. After he wins the Super Bowl tomorrow he will be without a doubt the greatest ever. The scary part he isn’t even done yet. There’s still more records to break and more MVP’s to win.

    So the only time Brady was unanimous was the year Peyton was out… As long as Peyton is around, Brady will ALWAYS be #2. #PeytonIsBestever

    There is no argument to who was most Valuable to their team this year. Just think, do you believe they would be in the Superbowl if Tebow was still QB?

  47. jimeejohnson says: Feb 1, 2014 9:53 PM

    Nope.

    As a die hard Steeler hater, it’s always fun to point out the fact that the last time the Steelers were in the playoffs they lost to Tebow.

    Congrats Manning.
    Now tell us what defenses you faced this year to get this award?

    I thought so.

    The answer is he faced the 16 defenses the NFL scheduled him against. I cant believe trolls want to argue this guys greatness. He just is, whether you are a fan or not. I personally am not but he is in the conversation as best ever.

  52. thefiesty1 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:02 PM

    Well, DUH! When he wins tomorrow he’ll retire and ride off into the sunset as the best ever.

  53. terryleather says: Feb 1, 2014 10:07 PM

    Peyton was easily the offensive player of the year. But when it comes to MOST VALUABLE, it should have been Brady. The difference between the Patriots and Browns is Tom Brady, and he got them to the AFC Championship.

  54. discosucs2005 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:09 PM

    I’m usually fine with people voting how they want, I didn’t even take issue with the melo vote in the NBA MVP race last year, but something about the fact that it was Brady that robbed Manning of his unanimous MVP bid is a little eye roll worthy.

  55. broncofanssuck says: Feb 1, 2014 10:10 PM

    Anyone that says Manninh is the best ever doesn’t know football. It is Montana.

  56. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Feb 1, 2014 10:10 PM

    Super Bowl MVP next?

  57. tedmurph says: Feb 1, 2014 10:12 PM

    Manning the greatest of all time? He’s not even the greatest QB on either team he’s played on. Elway is the greatest Bronco QB of all time and Unitas is the Colt’s.

    Not to mention, he’s not the greatest QB of his era. Brady is, win or lose tomorrow. MVP(despite it’s definition) is the reward for having the best regular season. So what.

  58. dahmergeinteam says: Feb 1, 2014 10:12 PM

    I could beat him.

  59. brazzz01 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:15 PM

    But when it comes to MOST VALUABLE, it should have been Brady. The difference between the Patriots and Browns is Tom Brady, and he got them to the AFC Championship.

    ————-

    That is precisely the argument I was referring to in my post further up.

    Take Brady off the Patriots before the 2013 season. Take a good hard look at their roster before and when the injuries hit. Then try and convince me that they would win more than 2 games this year.

    Do the same for Manning and the Broncos. Convince me that a team with loads of talent on offense who made the playoffs and won a playoff game with Tebow – that they couldn’t win at least 7 games this year with Osweiler starting…..

    That is the argument that can and probably did convince at least one voter to go in a different direction.

    Really?? Brady’s stats were no better than Alex Smiths this year. The Pats went 5-1 in games where he threw for less than 200 yards. He “won” his playoff game against the Colts while throwing for 0 tds and less than 200 yds, but handed it off 43 times and watched his RBs go for over 200 yds and his Def give him 4 turnovers.

    Sorry, but you’re just repeating media one liners that you’ve heard. The Pats success this year had more to do with Bilichek and their running game than it did Brady. If you think Brady was an MVP candidate then you should be pushing for alex smith too. They were both in the same situation. Running game and defense with some timely passes with subpar wr’s won them a lot of games.

  64. taintedsaints2009 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:18 PM

    I think manning will play well tomorrow, but like most of his seasons, his defense will let him down, or somebody else will screw it all up.

  65. brooklyn40niner says: Feb 1, 2014 10:19 PM

    That’s okay, RW3 is gonna be SB MVP tomorrow anyway.

  66. jmblosser82 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:20 PM

    Manning had a great year, it’s surprising he didn’t get 50 out of 50. Brady had a good year for the supporting cast he had but McCoy should have been the guy to have that 1 vote.

    Tebow gets credit for a beating a badly injured steeler team in Denver 3 seasons ago, but it was also the Denver defense that kept them in the games to even make the playoffs. Tebow just isn’t a nfl QB and never will be, that’s why he is a FA and the cfl won’t touch him.

  67. Brinke says: Feb 1, 2014 10:24 PM

    LOL! Gee whiz, what a surprise! I’m so shocked! (Not!) But I do find it funny how someone keeps voting for Tom Brady every year. Not that I mind of course, but I like seeing the Peyton worshippers cry buckets over it.

  69. cornerstone2001 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:28 PM

    Don’t ever mention manning in the same breath as Joe Montana

  70. brazzz01 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:36 PM

    I bet Manning’s, Brady’s and all passing records go down within 3 years.

    And soon after that the NFL will completely outlaw tackling. It will just be a bunch of guys wearing helmets and pads who have nothing more than the best seats in the house to watch records being broken.

    Book it.

    Welcome to Goodell’s NFL.

  71. jolink653 says: Feb 1, 2014 10:37 PM

    Oh stop it. This is the same team that Tim Tebow took to the playoffs and won a game in Pittsburgh with, except with two more receivers and a better running game. Manning is not as valuable to his team as Tom Brady is. Denver still wins double digit games without Peyton

  72. doe22us says: Feb 1, 2014 10:41 PM

    Pat trolls or shucks trolls in general have sorry lives. Brady is a great one, but come on, Manning is in a league of his own, besides Brady is at home as we speak.

  73. tedmurph says: Feb 1, 2014 10:51 PM

    Brady’s stats were no better than Smith’s? He passed for 1000 more yrds. Pats passing O was 10th, Chiefs 24th. Nobody’s afraid of Smith. Brady did it with nothing, singlehandedly pulling out about 6 wins. Pats went 4-1 when Brady passed for less than 200 yrds. They went 8-3 when he passed for more. So what. Maybe the media one-liners had more facts than the troll. Manning deserved the MVP, but what Brady did with what he had was remarkable. IMO, Brady could have had a great year with Manning’s weapons, but Manning couldn’t have done what Brady did in Foxboro.

  74. 3oh3isthegreatest says: Feb 1, 2014 10:53 PM

  81. beachsidejames says: Feb 2, 2014 9:59 AM

    Manning had the better stat year as made it to the big game where Tom came up short on both. Nobody knew if Manning was ever going to even play again with that neck injury. The #’s he put up this year are remarkable. If Tom is going to win mvp in the future he must get past the afc championship game and not just be the champs over the bills, jets, and dolphins.

  82. snaxdsp says: Feb 2, 2014 10:36 AM

    See what unapproved out of country neck procedures can do for you?

  83. w3smantooth says: Feb 2, 2014 2:16 PM

    Ryan Mallett could have done nearly the same thing had Brady not been there (remember the team was highly successful with Cassel). Manning adds significantly more to the Broncos (8 win team without him 2 years ago)

  84. gacoltfan says: Feb 2, 2014 2:33 PM

    I hate that “take this player off the team and what would they be” argument. The fact is we don’t know that answer, so the only a vote should be based on is how they played on the field. This year there is no doubt Manning played the best.

    Frankly, just about every team would be worse and not make the playoffs if their starting QB went down.
