Denvers wins have come against PIT, OAK, SD, NO, CIN, and CAR. Their combined records are 23-31, and the only one with a winning record is PIT (6-3). They've lost to ATL, HOU, and NE. It's hard to treat the Broncos/Manning like an elite team when they've lost to the three elite teams they've played and have only beaten one good team. Sure, CIN and NO are mediocre teams, but they're expected to win those games.
Rodgers/GB has one bad loss (to IND), but have lost to a very good SF team and were somewhat screwed over against a very underrated SEA team. However the impressive thing is that they've beaten two elite teams (HOU and CHI). Since week 4, Rodgers has thrown 22TDs/3INTs and hasn't had a QBR lower than 95, and this is all with the injuries that team has had.
I just can't see how Rodgers isn't the front-runner at this point.
Eli had a chance n blew it he's playing mediocre ...such a shame thought this was his year ...but rodgers will prob get it It's gonna be tough comeback player between manning n Adrian Peterson ...has a player won comeback m mvp in same year
Hell, everyone but Broncos fans said that Manning had no one to throw to when he signed with the Broncos. I believe I heard that the Broncos had the worst WR corps of any team Manning was considering. I also heard regularly that the Broncos line was horrible in pass protection. "Tebow made the line". Didn't the Broncos "back into the playoffs" last year?
Well, 9 games into the season and Manning is #1 in rating, #2 in % (behind a guy who has thrown over 100 less passes), #2 in yds/a (.07 behind a guy who has thrown 60 less passes), #5 in yards (140 yards behind the #1 who has thrown 1 less pass), #3 in TDs and tied for #1 in sacks.
Did I mention that he is two games away from equaling the wins of last years playoff team?
Cobb was compared to someone like keenan mcardell. Until this year I thinka jones and finley had popcorn parties before games. Of course im not saying rodgers made these guys, but its not like hes working with high draft picks who were expected to be this good
Peyton Manning will win. I'm not saying he deserves it or doesnt, but the story behind it will lead him through.
Rodgers has too much depth on the team to make excuses for a healthy roster
& i disagree that we're pretending he has great help
