Peyton Manning an early favorite to win his sixth MVP

Baltimore Ravens v Denver Broncos Getty Images

In 2009, Peyton Manning became the only player in NFL history to win four Most Valuable Player awards. In 2013, Manning became the only player in NFL history to win the award five times.

Now Manning is the favorite to become the first player to win six MVPs.

The offshore sports book Bovada is taking bets on the 2014 regular-season MVP in the NFL, and Manning, with 3-1 odds, is a significant favorite. Considering that Manning has won the MVP in five of his last 10 seasons, taking Manning at 3-1 odds may actually be a pretty good bet.

After Manning, the top MVP candidates according to Bovada are, in order, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Andrew Luck, Jay Cutler and Matthew Stafford. The top non-quarterback candidates are LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson, all at 25-1. Johnny Manziel, the only rookie on the board, is listed at 100-1.

As for Manning, he could become just the fifth player in the history of North American sports to win six MVPs. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the only player to win six MVPs in the NBA. Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky are the only players to win six MVPs in the NHL. Barry Bonds (perhaps with an asterisk) is the only player to win six MVPs in Major League Baseball. Manning is in some very elite company.

    Top 5 QB’s in the NFL :

    1. Peyton Manning
    2. Aaron Rodgers
    3. Tom Brady
    4. Drew Brees
    5. Teddy Bridgewater

  3. bobby2478 says: Jul 11, 2014 10:13 AM

    Manziel the MVP in his rookie year at 100-1?? Why not make it more realistic. More like 1,000,000 – 1. NO WAY it happens.

    Eventually he could be MVP if he gets his act together, but will never happen for ANY rookie QB (especially one more focused on having fun than they are preparing for their first pro season).

  4. ravensrunthenfl says: Jul 11, 2014 10:14 AM

    Won’t matter when he chokes again in the playoffs.

    Peyton manning: best regular season qb ever

  6. trbowman says: Jul 11, 2014 10:14 AM

    Even with those odds, Johnny Manziel being on that list is hilarious. Newton had a sensational rookie year and still wasn’t involved in the MVP discussion.

    Anyway, it’s July. Nuff said.

  7. jjackwagon says: Jul 11, 2014 10:16 AM

    And he is the early favorite to have another monumental choke job in the playoffs, IF they make it.

  8. largent80100 says: Jul 11, 2014 10:16 AM

    I want to lose money, so I’m going to bet on Cutler.

  9. thestrategyexpert says: Jul 11, 2014 10:17 AM

    They lost the SB due to having not as much “value” as the other team. Value of which was possible due to Russell Wilson playing so well yet having the money go to a lot of other positions. That’s why he should have won the award, it wasn’t even close in my calculation.

    Peyton’s still a great player, but the MVP of last season is just not an appropriate award for him. I’m putting an asterisk on it to mark it as “not right”. Plus he was bitter and rude in defeat and I’ll remember that too.

  10. skunkgoosefly says: Jul 11, 2014 10:17 AM

    Brett Favre should have won in 2009. It was close but you’ve got to give to the guy that people thought was washed up and had his best year ever, at 39 yrs old.

  11. humb0lt says: Jul 11, 2014 10:19 AM

    Manning may not be the best QB in his division.

  12. ravensrunthenfl says: Jul 11, 2014 10:23 AM

    The greatest choker in world history. Peyton manning.

  13. RegisHawk says: Jul 11, 2014 10:23 AM

    *shrug* As mentioned above, he’s stellar in the regular season, so I suppose he can have the inside track on next year’s MVP. Ask him if he’d trade all 5 (6 if he gets one next year) for SB rings…I think we all know the answer.

  14. trbowman says: Jul 11, 2014 10:24 AM

    “Brett Favre should have won in 2009. It was close but you’ve got to give to the guy that people thought was washed up and had his best year ever, at 39 yrs old.”

    Jenn Sterger thought he was washed up too.

  15. 2dat says: Jul 11, 2014 10:24 AM

    Are you crazy . Drew Brees was the CLEAR NFL MVP in 2009. Manning keeps winning the Popularity Contest this award has become. Almost the same as the Hesiman Trophy.

  16. bostonian13 says: Jul 11, 2014 10:25 AM

    6 MVPs, 1 ring.

  17. weepingjebus says: Jul 11, 2014 10:26 AM

    I dunno, the Colts have been fine without him, and the Broncos will have a good team when he’s gone. He’s like a giant fancy-looking battleship that leaves the wake of a rowboat.

    too many manning haters, sorry you guys lost against the spread in the superbowl, but anyone who throws a record amount of td’s deserves the MVP

    TEDDY “TWO GLOVES” for the MVP this year!!

    SKOL!!!

    Regular season: one of the best ever

    Post season: not even the best quarterback in his family

    At this point in his career the only thing that should matter is winning another title.

  22. mikea311 says: Jul 11, 2014 10:42 AM

    Manziel the MVP in his rookie year at 100-1?? Why not make it more realistic. More like 1,000,000 – 1. NO WAY it happens.

    becuase when everyone and their mother drops $1 on that bet and in the fluke it actually happens, no way they are able to cover that bet.

    Actually, I would argue he should have won in 2007, his last year with the Pack. That season was amazing, probably his best. It just got overshadowed by Brady’s 50 touchdown year.

    Stafford and Cutler are just bad. That’s why they have no chance. Big arms that seem to have promise that actually have no hope of winning a big game.

    And Jamaal will accept another MVP for classiest player in the league, despite being overlooked once again.

    Most yards per attempt in NFL HISTORY!

    Most TD’s scored by anyone last season, and most catches and yards by any RB in the league.

    If he got 3/4 the amount of carries of the other backs in the league he’d own the rushing yardage stats too.

    He’s too humble to toot his own horn, so we’ll do it for him.

    *************************************
    Consider for a second that Aaron Rodgers single handedly makes the Pack a contender. The second he’s not there the Pack will be lucky to even win the NFC North. The Vikes aren’t ready to be perennial NFC North champs yet, but I’d watch out for Chicago. They look like the powerhouse in the division right now (especially if they can improve even marginally on defense).

    Forte, Cutler, Marshall and Jeffrey is a dangerous combination on offense (not even mentioning Bennett)

  47. qdog112 says: Jul 11, 2014 11:48 AM

    I like this Manning but, after seeing him exposed so often in playoffs, I am beginning to think he is undeserving of MVP…

    Umm sorry, Brees did NOT have a better season than Peyton in 2009.

    Peyton carried an average Colts team to the Superbowl that year and their 14-0 start could’ve been an undefeated season which was on the strength of his 7 4th Q comebacks that season

    Brees won the Superbowl, be happy with that insecure Saints fans

  52. revelation123 says: Jul 11, 2014 12:07 PM

    Huh? The press stories I saw were the opposite-that he was still accomodating to press and fans even after that soul crushing beatdown. Say what you want about the play of either of the Mannings, but classless has never been something which describes them.

    It’s the MVP. Doesn’t go to the “best player” during that season. Chris Johnson was the OPOY anyway, and he had a better season then both of them. Would you argue CJ2K was the MVP over both of them?

    lots of good QB’s need strong Olines and top pass catchers to help them on their journey. Where ever Peyton Manning is he make everyone look like the best. He is his own Offensive coordinator, Arron Rodgers is the next in line but he has only known Mike McCarthy’s system.

    He can get all the mvp awards in the world, it’s just a popularity contest. He keeps winning because of his “aw shucks I’m just a country boy” personna which evidently appeals to the people who vote on this stuff. His attitude after the sb last season was despicable, and his team should hold HIM accountable because he’s the one that gets ALL the attention with his personal stats awards. He’s the biggest choker in NFL history, and he’s not even the best qb in his own family.

    Brees got robbed in 2009 in favor of the narrative the media was pushing all year – “Peyton’s the greatest QB ever! Nobody’s ever won the MVP 4 times, and once he wins that and wins the SB, nobody can ever argue he’s the best ever!” It was total crap.

    And I’m still laughing at the Broncos fan predicting a 37-21 Superbowl win for the broncos over the Seahawks. There are so manny things wrong with this “prediction”. First, predictions are the realm of Hawkstradamus. No team has beat the Seahawks by more than one score in years, literally . No one has scored more than 34 points against the Seahawks since November of 2010. And then there is the whole manning in the playoffs= the opposite of superman and the yellow sun thing.
    Just a reminder 43-8.

  72. dcpatfan says: Jul 11, 2014 2:21 PM

    I thought Tom Brady wasn’t a Top 5 QB? I could swear I read that somewhere during the off season on the Internet, and if it’s on the Internet, you know it’s true.

    That second MVP in 2004 was a gift/consolation prize for Manning while Brady took home his 3rd Lombardi. It was a sentimental thing to do for Manning, but that 2004 MVP rightfully belongs to Tom Brady. The feeling was that Brady wouldn’t miss it because he had all those Lombardi’s to carry around and all those rings on his fingers. I’m sure he prefer’s the Lombardi’s. LOL.

    The Pats were 14-2 with 2 wins over Indy, one in the playoffs, and won back to back, and third out of four Super Bowls. It was time to acknowledge Brady as the True MVP. Epic Fail on the part of the sportswriter/voters. Manning’s media availability and his family influence probably factored in. Manning got 16 votes. Most people don’t remember but it was actually a tie between Manning and McNair. Brady got 8 votes. Really? There was clearly a bias in the media.

    To this day I can’t understand the fascination of the media with perhaps not tearing down (except they have lately), but simply not acknowledging a guy who probably quarterbacks’ his team better than anyone, ever, more consistently, over the longest period of time, and does it in the age of parity. Go figure… Fans I understand. They will come around after Brady retires. But the media should know better.

  80. juliusanonymous says: Jul 11, 2014 4:06 PM

    Any list of MVP candidates that includes Jay Cutler and Matt Stafford with no mention of Russell Wilson is a joke beyond belief.

    It just goes to prove how little value there is to being a “great” QB in today’s NFL. People are awed by the big yardage numbers put up by Cutler, Stafford, Brees, Rodgers, Manning and Romo. Yet every single one of those QBs is a big-time choker in the playoffs. Their teams consistently fail. Rodgers, Brees and Manning can all thank their defenses for their one ring. None of them put up 27 points of offense against their Superbowl opponents the way Russell Wilson did in Superbowl 48.

    Of course, these silly popularity contest accolades mean nothing. I was angry that Russell Wilson was overlooked for MVP but the Superbowl championship more than made up for it. The complete clown-show train wreck that was Peyton Manning just made for icing on the cake to us Seahawk fans. It was a thing of beauty watching all the Broncos fans in our section go from big-time smack-talking to going quiet, then looks of desperation, then finally trudging out of the stadium with chins on chests.

    What happened to that all-time greatest offense? Y’all got SMOKED. Destroyed. Beat up and humiliated.

    Peyton Manning = 8 points against backups.
    Russell Wilson = 27 points against your starters.

    Russell Wilson was the real MVP of 2013, and he’s got the hardware to prove it.

    Totally agree with lanman up there.

    It’s insane to me that people rank Manning over Brady. Brady has always played on teams with less talent around him, and yet has consistently humiliated Peyton in the postseason, and it’s not even close. It’s hilarious and stupid to rank Manning over Brady. Manning doesn’t have him beat on anything, and especially not rings (despite having the opportunity to at least match that count).

    Brady actually put up a fight against the Seahawks and the LOB. We won by 1 point in the last minute. Brady was a machine out there. Dude was putting up those yards with no-namers at WR and TE.

    Peyton faced the LOB and got beatdown like Pee Wee Herman in a prison fight. It was like that biker bar scene in the Pee Wee movie, but what that would have looked like in real life. Mothers were putting their hands over their children’s eyes so they wouldn’t see the violence. I heard a grown woman screaming next to me. At one point, they called out a rodeo clown to keep Bam Bam Kam Chancellor from hitting the old man and hurting him.

    If I could go back in time and trade Russell Wilson for any other QB in the history of the game, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick Brady while I’d laugh at Manning. You can keep that Doogie Howser lookin postseason choker. Dude throws his own teammates under the bus. Lacks character and chokes when it counts.

    Brady > Manning
    RussellMania > Manning

    They lost the SB due to having not as much “value” as the other team. Value of which was possible due to Russell Wilson playing so well yet having the money go to a lot of other positions. That’s why he should have won the award, it wasn’t even close in my calculation.

    Peyton’s still a great player, but the MVP of last season is just not an appropriate award for him. I’m putting an asterisk on it to mark it as “not right”. Plus he was bitter and rude in defeat and I’ll remember that too.

    I agree with this assessment. It all depends on what you mean by MVP. If you are truly measuring value, as in value per $, then it is no contest at all because RW wins it in a landslide. But if you measure it by yards or total regular season yards passed or total regular season TDs then of course PM is the correct choice. The big problem most people have is with this second definition because it does not mean very much.

    Gretzky actually won 9 Hart trophys (NHL MVP). Including 8 in a row… Not 6. Everyone else mentioned in the article pales in comparison.

    Peyton Manning reminds me a little bit of Bobby Cox, the famous Atlanta Braves manager through the 90s. He had one of the best rotations I can ever recall, with Maddux and Smoltz and a few others. When it came to playoffs, they’d be good enough to win the pennant, but lose repeatedly in the World Series to the AL champion. Lots of talent, but poor results when it counted most. And yes, they did win one title. But for the most part, Bobby Cox is remembered for his poor leadership when it counted most, and resulting in the lack of multiple titles.

    Peyton is exactly like that in my view. Loads of individual talent for so many years – no one can question this because it is fact. Lots of great talent around him in the team, both offence and defense. But poor results when it counts the most. And this for the most part due to poor leadership on his part. This last SB was an embarrassment not only to him and his team, but the city of Denver which deserves much better than he can offer.

    Tom Brady still should’ve won the MVP last season. He may not have had Peyton’s stats, but he was able to get a team of rookies and backups to the AFC championships. He also led five comeback wins in big games. Brady was playing with shrubs all season and still managed to lead them to a winning record.

    Regular season MVP. Sure, no problem.

    Best QB ever? No way. No matter how much we are told that Peyton is the best evah! the eyes don’t lie.

    He’s HOF, sure. But Montana, Elway, and Young all beat Manning for all time. Right now, Brady is ahead of him too. (If Brady plays to 43 or even 41, then even all of Peyton’s stats would be in jeopardy). If Brees gets another ring, he should be above Manning too.

    When Marino played, a lot of people said “best evah!” but he is kind-of overlooked now. Same with Peyton; he will be overshadowed by others with more rings.

    Manning is better than Elway…

    I’m not so sure anyone from the AFC should be MVP…. hard to measure with such poor competition

    Peyton Manning is the biggest Super Bowl Choker in history.

    Sincerely,

    I can’t believe people think Peyton Manning is so great when he only has 1 Super Bowl Ring.

    Love,

    Dan Marino

    you people built this guy so much, I dislike this guy. He can’t win the big game , he is lucky he had good receivers in his career.

  94. bobsnygiants says: Jul 12, 2014 2:37 PM

    just give it to him now, sports writers love this guy, he only as good as his receivers

    Also an early favorite to choke in the playoffs.
