Yeah they don't have a good QB - wouldn't that lead to them running the ball more?
Great/good RB's are a dime a dozen in this league. Great QB's aren't.
RB's don't influence outcomes of games as much as QB's and are much more dependent on the offensive line than good QB's (Brady's/Mannings).
New England has a comparable rushing attack to Minnesota. (NE - 1800yds 20 TDs, MIN- 2000 yards 12 TDs) You don't suppose that would have anything to do with Tom Brady?
See how you can have 3 or 4 backs do the job of 1? Its why QB are MUCH more VALUABLE.

As YOU said it is a passing league. Hence the ability for a team to pass the ball is much more VALUABLE then a teams ability to run it.
Want proof? Look at the correlation between QBR or passer rating and winning percentage.

Don't twist my words. If passing became EASIER how did it become more VALUABLE.Running is less essential because it became far easier to pass. It didn't become easier to run. The fact they can't pass with these passing rules yet can run down your throat against loaded boxes is incredible.
Again, I'm not arguing QB's aren't more important overall.
You want to talk value?
I think NE could still win their division with Ryan Mallett. Hell they could with Tim Tebow. NOBODY IS OVER 500.
The Vikings are a game over 500 and IMO would be in the running for first overall without Peterson.
How's that for valuable versus impressive?
It is easier and more effective to move the ball though the air in todays NFL (true facts). You pass the ball more, you will gain more yards and hence score more points, hence win more games (the ultimate value).
If AP were gonna score 25 TD's and lead his team to the playoffs I'd have no problem giving him the award.

Gabbert - GOAT
To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.
To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.
its all irrelevant anyhow because the vikings are not making the playoffs
its between manning and brady
