Most Unconvincing MVP Push Ever Recorded
A bunch of fans (three, actually) at the San Diego game are waving a giant "M", "V", and "P" for Philip Rivers. I wonder if there is a "fifth" and a "place" offscreen, because giving him the nod above Favre, Manning, or Brees would be asinine at this point. Going in to today's game, Rivers was third in rating (Brees and Favre were above him, Manning a couple points beneath), seventh in yards per game (Brees and Manning in front), tenth in TDs (Brees, Manning, and Favre all ahead of him), tenth in completion percentage (behind all three), and leading a thirteenth-ranked offense in yards per game (behind all three) on a soon-to-be 11-3 team (a worse record than each of the teams led by the three above-mentioned QBs).
