Personally I think it should have been Dominic Rhodes. Do you all agree with the Manning selection?

I think Manning earned it, give credit where it is due, he like Elway was a great missing that piece of his career puzzle and has now beaten his own worse demon. Unlike most he had a good game, even Rhodes was no better then Thomas for Chicago...he earned it, let it rest.

I thought Manning played an "OK" game, but Rhodes was the one who lit the spark and who gained the tough yards. IMO, he was the reason Indy had such a huge TOP advantage. It may have come down to the fact that nobody stood out and they had to give it to someone, but I started thinking about halfway through the 3rd quarter that if I had a vote, it would be Rhodes.

But Rhodes did not do as much as Thomas, that is the point...Bob Sanders would be a smarter move then Rhodes. Picking the winning halfback though he did less then the oppositions halfback is not smart, they have to be smart about it. And Manning still threw for over 250 plus yards, which is a hard feat in the Super Bowl now days.

i voted Rhodes as well. His tough running got the job done for the Colts. Manning just did what he has done all season, throw low-yardage routes to backs and TE's while every defense in the league plays a deep Cover 2 just because they are afraid of Wayne and Harrison.

Manning did nothing to deserve the MVP in that game. I thought that was bad.

Manning totally deserved it. He silenced many critics by not choking in the biggest game ever after he fell behind quickly (14 seconds actually).

Rhodes did add some spark, but so did Addai. Neither performance was awe inspiring, just a RB doing a good job. Manning played nearly flawless and was able to escape pressure and make some nice throws at times too.

If nobody on your team makes an amazing performance, give it to the field general.

Oh please. The Indy RBs had it easy all game long. The LBs were busy covering the TEs, the Safeties were backed WAY up, and everyone was so afraid of Manning all they had to do was get past the front 4. The Bears could have won that game, had Rex Grossman not been their quarterback.

I think Hayden, the backup corner that picked off Grossman, skitted the sideline and sealed the win should have got it. Or Sanders.

Manning puts so much effort into football (studying, practicing, devoting everything he has) so I guess he deserves it.

I honestly think many of you hold a personal grudge against mannin that clouds your judgement.

Did he have a GREAT game... no but he was the MVP. Noone performed for their team as well as he did. I mean Rhodes wasnt even the best RB ont he field, maybe a player on the Colts D but it seemed tome that they all played well, so Mannin was really a difference maker.

I dont like Mannin, but give credit when it is due.


Also Lanc: You think Moses will drop into the third?

I quoted you cuz I agree with you btw not cuz I am sayin you hate Mannin

Manning managed the game well in the rain. If Rhodes or Addai had a breakout game like Davis did, scoring 3 td's while dealing with his migraine, then I would say one of them would deserve it.

The Indy defense was good, the O-line protected Manning and after trying to force he one pass to Harrison he made the plays it took to win. I don't have any issue with them giving it to Manning.

I agree with Elway....I also think Manning derserved it....

Manning is one heck of a QB...he is a very smart QB and knows how
to manage the clock well...he deserved it all the way and I am glad
he and the Colts finally got their SB win...

Manning played a great game, the only mistake he made was the int.

I'm glad "THE COLTS" got the win!
(If I hear one more person say Peyton Manning won the SB, I'm gonna snap)
I am also glad Peyton got the MVP.
Hopefully the NFL will now find a new golden boy to worship! *Crossing my fingers for Cutler*

Now I am gonna turn of the NFL network until April. If I have to listen to any more Manning talk, my ears will bleed! I'm not trying to be a jerk, I just do not like Peyton. He has no respect for his team, you can tell when he throws them under the bus!

My pick on biggest impact player? Bob Sanders.

He kept Grossman from going deep and when he did he made him pay. Not to mention making some sweet tackes in the process.

Asides that miscues on Thomas Jones's 52 yard run, he played a near flawless game, IMO.

Manning played amazing too, bouncing back from adversity and handling his team and the Bears like a true pro.

I still think Rex Grossman was the Colt's MVP, but hey... that's just me.

yeah.. and the thing about that INT... was that Harrison actually should have come TO the ball. Had he done that, that pass was perfect. Marvin is the one that actually let that ball be intercepted.

I think he has complete and total respect for his team. Listen to his comments when getting the news for the MVP, or when being awarded the trophy. Peyton is nothing buy class... pure class.

There isn't a guy that works harder on his craft than Peyton Manning. I think he demands that kind of work from everyone else on his team as well, and when they don't... he is sure to hold them accountable.

So may people want to say he 'threw them under the bus' (the most overused term nowdays)...yet you NEVER EVER hear a single player say/comment/suggest that they don't respect or like playing with Peyton. When things get the hardest, Peyton is always there to take the blame on his shoulders.

I'm glad he won the Super Bowl.... and feel he is a great face for the NFL. :beer:

i think bob sanders deserved it. the colts defense was crappy when he was out. if he did not play in this superbowl, they would have lost

huh? when things get hardest he always takes the blame? like last year when they lost to the steelers and he said the offensive line was the reason they lost? btw, he should have given the lombardi trophy to bob sanders instead of just passing it down to a random teammate, since sanders is the defensive leader. i don't like the way peyton freaks out whenever one of his teammates drops a ball. in the kansas city game, i thought marvin harrison was going to punch him

I think the joseph Addai & Domminick Rhodes should share the MVP

peyton deserved it for having a solid consistent game after his slow start, rhodes also deserved it for his solid game
there's a case for addai but he didn't score any points, as for hayden, one play usually doesn't win an mvp (unless the bears would have won 7-0, then that would have been hester's award)

Peyton definitely desserved it. Are you kidding me?!?!?! (expression, not aimed at anyone :) ).

This is the vaunted Bears defense!!! After a rough start, he analyzed them, and picked them apart. He kept them guessing wrong a whole lot. And he kept them on their toes with even subtle things.

He saw the Bears were showing their formation late into the count to not give away anything, so what he did was he waited for the Bears to show their formation before calling the plays. He also changed the times he took the snaps, sometimes early, sometimes late, to keep the Bears off-rythm.

There's a reason why their offensive unit performed as a team. The right plays at the right times. The guy is a certified genius. Some quarterbacks can make small adjustments, to avoid the blitz, etc. This guy makes huge ones and sees so much more.

This Bears defense can make any good quarterback look inept, and look what he got them doing. This Bears defense could've probably romped against any other team.

they can also make any qb a winner, just ask joey harrington

bears gave up something like 4 or 5 100 yard opposing rb performances this season, they're not as good as people think, if they'd been an afc team they wouldn't even be in the top 5 in defense in the afc....completely overrated defense, and most already knew this.

Yeah, those are good points. But I'll take their play-making-sometimes-getting-burned defense over our bend-but-not-break defence, hehehe. :D

Manning totally deserved it. He silenced many critics by not choking in the biggest game ever after he fell behind quickly (14 seconds actually).


MVP = not choking?


Manning puts so much effort into football (studying, practicing, devoting everything he has) so I guess he deserves it.

Superbowl MVP is based on the single game performance, not everything else prior to it, that is given as a team MVP award and has nothing to do with playing/winning the superbowl itself


I think Manning deserved it because they were able to run because Manning was back there and the defense for Chicago had to play way back.

Manning played a great game, the only mistake he made was the int.

I think just the opposite, manning was doing nothing of note until they bears started having issues with the run game.... Wayne was open cause they all bit on the run..

Oh, and without that one pass his numbers would have been 194 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT, 1 Fumble... very grossman like numbers. Can't take out ONE good play, so you cant take out on BAD play either when determining the MVP.

Don't get me wrong I like peyton manning, but I think this should have gone to one of the RBs:
Manning, 247 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
Rhodes, 113 Rushing yards, 8 recieving yards, 121 total yards and a TD
Addai, 77 Rushing yards, 66 Recieving yards (on 10 receptions) 143 total yards

If I counted right, Colts had 25 first downs, 8 are from mannings passes, 3 of those went to addai.
Addai had 10 first downs
Rhodes had 6 first downs

On the colts last drive, Rhodes got 2 first downs on the ground. Killed 2 1/2 minutes, and pretty much took any hope out of chicago from making a miraculous comeback.

Manning's single game (imo) just doesnt stack up to these other 2. While i think manning did a good job, it was the running backs that won them that game.

The MVP should have gone to Rhodes, but the better story would be for it to go to Manning, wether or not he deserved it or not.

"Not Choking" should not be the criteria by which you are voted the SB MVP. Manning just did what he was supposed to do. If not for the running game they had, the passing game would not have been as good. It should have been Rhodes. He was running with all heart and was the most valuable player on the field last night.

One more thing, it looked to me that Manning kind of "Ran Away" from that one early fumbled handoff, he looked content to let everybody else fight for it. :confused:

hayden or sander-- no way should manning have gotten it. he didnt impress me that much in the superbowl. they just gave it to manning just cuz its manning and great endorsements to the nfl. imo they should of gave it to someone on the colts defense they came up with big plays for manning. 1 td pass to a wide open rec. doesnt deserve the mvp.

I agree with you, it should have been Rhodes or Rhodes and Addai sharing it.

a Secondary player was also Bob Sanders. a pick and a forced fumble. as well

Many people I have spoke with today agree. Me included. The Colt defense should have been considered.

Potato Head was not the best player on the field. :rolleyes:
