people have to remember that chris johnson ran for 2000, had more total yards and tds than peterson, and set the single season yards from scrimmage record at the time, his team finished 8-8 and baiscally did what peterson did on a similar team (helpwise) and did not get a single mvp vote. mvp voting takes history into consideration. why would the mvp voters give peterson a vote when they didn't even give johnson 1?
