Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans -- Do you realize the best running back in the game didn't get an MVP vote last season?
Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts -- You can cut and paste his name in this category every year.
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers -- A 5,000-yard passing season is doable.
Ray Rice, Baltimore Ravens -- Workload was a manageable 254 carries last season (compared to Johnson's 358). And he'll lead all backs in receptions again.
Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints -- Habit.
Johnson, if he breaks Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record. Rodgers, if he doesn't.
If my boy Aaron Rodgers gets it you'll never hear the end of it for the rest of your life from me. To go from Brett Favre(boo!) to Aaron Rodgers(yay!), in my opinion, is on the same level as the 49ers transitioning from Montana to Young. You don't usually see a team lose an elite QB and his replacement come in and reach elite status as well. Rodgers is so good that he may be the top QB for the next five years and beyond. Don't believe me? Well, consider his age and what he did last year with that Swiss cheese of an o-line. That o-line got a huge boost this off-season and look for the Packers to focus on it more and more in the future.
Who do you think the MVP will be?
