It’s a toss up for MVP so far

Smith Getty Images

Before anyone declares Super Bowl XLVIII to be over, remember that the Ravens led the 49ers by 22 points in the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII.

And then Roger Goodell kicked the plug for the lights out of the wall.

So while we wait for the extended halftime to end, let’s get an early start on determining the MVP.

The choices, based on the consensus of the five PFT staff members attending the game, are quarterback Russell Wilson (9-14, 94 yards passing, 10 yards rushing), running back Marshawn Lynch (11 carries for 17 yards, one touchdown), receiver Doug Baldwin (three catches, 50 yards), receiver Percy Harvin (45 yards rushing, five receiving), linebacker Malcolm Smith (69-yard interception return for touchdown; pictured), safety Kam Chancellor (interception), and defensive end Cliff Avril (safety, hit on Peyton Manning that caused pick six).

The defensive guys could get a chance to add to their achievements as the Broncos enter desperation mode in the third quarter.

    Give it to a defender.

  3. seatownballers says: Feb 2, 2014 8:21 PM

    Hawks. Good job guys
    Haters can bite their lip and tongue,

  4. caseyanthonymunoz says: Feb 2, 2014 8:22 PM

    The Seahawks should give it to Manning. He’s awful. Guy pees down his leg in big games.

    We are so proud of the fact that, at the end of the day, we will still have more Super Bowl victories than you.

    I’m about to win ALOT of money. Thanks Bronco betters.

    Peyton Manning = JUST A MAN
    Seattle Seahawks = A COMPLETE TEAM!!!

    Is Bruno Mars taller than Russel Wilson?

  10. patriots123456 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:24 PM

    Well whoever it is they won’t be wearing a Bronco’s uniform…

  11. ultrawolf123 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:25 PM

    Kam Chancellor with out a doubt, so far.
    Go Hawks!!!

  12. bus035 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:26 PM

    “Welcome to the Machine” Cliff Avril has undoubtedly changed this game. Unfortunately, the MVP honor always go to stat-packed players, but Mr. Avril has definitely been the best player thus far

  13. pgilbert2013 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:26 PM

    Peyton is my MVP… We can finally put to rest the Manning family hype!

    Joe Montana & Tommy Brady are still clutch in the biggest games.

  14. strokinmyego says: Feb 2, 2014 8:27 PM

    The media will still find a way to give it to Manning.

  15. rubenxx7 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:27 PM

    cliff

  16. kremis says: Feb 2, 2014 8:27 PM

    Peyton manning , who else?

  17. the8man says: Feb 2, 2014 8:27 PM

    League looking for a way to turn out the lights if the Hawks open the second half with any points….

  18. fdugrad says: Feb 2, 2014 8:30 PM

    Seems strange to be talking about MVP at this point, however how about awarding it to the entire Hawk Defense?

  19. jmblosser82 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:31 PM

    Let’s give the 1st half MVP to Smith.

  20. 2difshoe says: Feb 2, 2014 8:31 PM

    The biggest question here is how is Fox going to keep the viewers watching this debacle ?

  21. cornerstone2001 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:31 PM

    Give it to the refs for the bogus calls in the Niners game that put the shehawks in the SB

  22. jmblosser82 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:31 PM

    After the kickoff lets say Harvin

  23. patriots123456 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:32 PM

    Percy Harvin

  24. rubenxx7 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:32 PM

    check that lol percy harvin mvp

  25. Professor Fate says: Feb 2, 2014 8:32 PM

    “Before anyone declares Super Bowl XLVIII to be over…”

    Second half kickoff returned for a TD. It’s pretty close to being over…

  26. bucrightoff says: Feb 2, 2014 8:33 PM

    Percy has it locked up now

  27. seahawksbmx says: Feb 2, 2014 8:33 PM

    Percy!!! Eat it poet. Great trade!

  28. thefiesty1 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:34 PM

    GAME OVER! Sorry Denver.

  29. phillysports1 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:34 PM

    Harvin kickoff return . Jesus Christ I thought everyone said SEATTLE didn’t have a chance !!!! Lmao !!!

  30. allidoiswin55 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:34 PM

    Game…

    All we heard about was how manning would kill the Seahawks … The Seahawks are the most talented team in football hands down .. You see this now ..

  31. nosmak40 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:34 PM

    Broncos=frauds

  32. mediasloppy says: Feb 2, 2014 8:35 PM

    After watching Percy Harvin in MN do his thing with kick returns, that was the dumbest kick I ever seen. You never kick to Harvin.

  33. musketmaniac says: Feb 2, 2014 8:35 PM

    watch peyton fold

  36. musketmaniac says: Feb 2, 2014 8:37 PM

    one of the strongest defensive superbowl performance ever

  37. qdog112 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:40 PM

    IT’S JUST THE 3RD QUARTER. A little early to be naming the MVP.

  38. mediasloppy says: Feb 2, 2014 8:46 PM

    MVP = Pressure on Manning. Period.

    Bruno Mars IS Russell Wilson.

  40. nwhawkhater says: Feb 2, 2014 8:52 PM

    The biggest losers are the non Seahawk fans who will have to listen to all the bandwagon fans talk trash about how long they have been fans but still think Jim zorn is still the QB!

    Wrong, Chicago Bears over New England in 1985 !

  42. wojo243 says: Feb 2, 2014 8:58 PM

    Kam is putting work in there with his coverage in the middle and the physical presence he provides. Dude should be the MVP.

  43. headonaswivel says: Feb 2, 2014 9:02 PM

    Pleeeease…

    The voters are gonna fall all over themselves and give MVP to the most overrated player in the NFL… Russel Wilson.

    Under a hundred yards passing and no TD’s, heck he’s a shoe in…

    Sadly the media obsession with Wilson will continue. I guess they love him because he’s so short or something but the guy is as average as they come.

    ———————————————-

    bull….. the Denver O line has blown this game all on their own… from the first snap, they put Manning in a hole and by the 2nd quarter they put him into desperation mode to get on the board

    now it’s 3rd quarter and still no protection, it all comes down to that. If were doing their job, this game would be about even as it would wipe out a safety and two TD’s and 2-3 Broncos drives would have got somewhere.

    wow are some prop bets paying off….

  45. jmblosser82 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:03 PM

    I said before conference championship week it was going to be a NFC win at the SB

  46. tedmurph says: Feb 2, 2014 9:03 PM

    Seattle D

  47. restorativejusticeprogram says: Feb 2, 2014 9:04 PM

    Tim Tebow.

    If he was still Denver’s QB they would have shown far more heart.

  48. strokinmyego says: Feb 2, 2014 9:04 PM

    Legacy damaging loss for Manning. Brady at least went down swinging.

  49. raiderapologist says: Feb 2, 2014 9:05 PM

    The MVP is Seattle’s defense. Might as well give it to Chancellor.

  50. mantastic54 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:06 PM

    The cold weather

  51. musketmaniac says: Feb 2, 2014 9:17 PM

    lol, I love the fridge, 2. however I said.`one of`

  52. branbeezy says: Feb 2, 2014 9:19 PM

    Kam Chancellor. If they give the MVP to Russel Wilson that might as well rename it to the winning superbowl quarterback award.(That was lame)

  53. tedmurph says: Feb 2, 2014 9:20 PM

    Bet I know how it goes at the Manning family picnic. CUT THAT MEAT.

  54. Mr. Wright 212 says: Feb 2, 2014 9:42 PM

    Tough call, Harvin, Smith, Kearse? Chancellor had it sewn up until Smith’s pick 6.

  55. 302baller says: Feb 2, 2014 9:47 PM

    12th Man, PED’s and Amphetamines.

  56. drewzducks says: Feb 2, 2014 9:54 PM

    if Percy and Tavarius knew it was gonna be this easy to reach the top of the mountain they would’ve left that third world Mickey Mouse organization in Minnesota YEARS ago

  58. musketmaniac says: Feb 2, 2014 10:18 PM

    Terry Bradshaw, was clutch. didn’t have to put up big numbers. ,four super bowl rings.

  59. slaugin says: Feb 2, 2014 11:45 PM
