Peyton Manning MVPTotal Pro Sports – On Friday the NFL awarded Peyton Manning the Most Valuable Player (MVP) Trophy, his third trophy in his career.  Manning has tied Brett Favre for most MVP Trophies in a career, and will probably break the record in upcoming years.

“It’s been the most rewarding regular season that I’ve been a part of in my 11 years, and I have to believe a lot of the other players and even coaches might feel the same way.”

“I really accept this award on behalf of the team and the organization because there is no way we would be in the playoffs and bounced back without those three people creating a winning environment,” said Peyton

It’s definitely nice to see Peyton Manning back on top in the NFL.  After leading his team like a true warrior he is, to 9 straight wins and into this years Playoffs, we think that Peyton Manning hands down is this years NFL MVP.

Now well just have to wait and see if this story has a fairytale ending and the Indianapolis Colts can win this years Super Bowl.
