I'm in class and can't look up all the stats I want to, but I'm pretty sure Drew remains this year's NFL leader in passing yards and touchdowns. He has now brought his team back to 5-5 and .500 after starting 0-4. He broke Johnny U's record for consecutive games with a TD pass this season, which he continues to extend each week.
How can one NOT give this year's MVP, which stands for MOST VALUABLE PLAYER, to Drew Brees. The man is practically operating as QB/O Coordinator/Head Coach each week and performing at a level as efficient as he ever has while doing so. Drew has yet to be mentioned for MVP this season. If his name doesn't enter the conversation this week after all he's done, it's all a sham (even though we already know it is, given he was shafted in 06, 09, and 11).
Drew Brees IS the MOST valuable player in this year's league.

Although Drew should of won previous years I don't think this is his year at this time. He leads in touchdowns with 28, second in total yards behind Matt Ryan, and has a low, especially for Drew, 62.3 completion percentage.

Regarding his completion %: How many times has Drew thrown the ball compared to other front-running QBs this year?
He also threw for only 219 in this past week's blowout, a pedestrian # for Drew. Don't act like Ryan is destroying him in yardage- he's literally only 6 yards ahead with 3,072 compared to Drew's 3,066.

And Drew won't win it this year. I watched something yesterday with two talking heads talking about how Payton is looking and one of the guys said that Payton is starting to look sharp and the other guy said so you are basically giving him the MVP too than huh? It was a really dumb statement because it didn't fit into what the other guy was talking about but none-the-less they started talking about it as if they were coaxed in to it.

There's seemingly always an excuse for Brees not getting it. I'm curious as to what the media will use this year. Both Manning/Rodgers' teams were under .500 a few weeks into the season, so they ca't use that one. No one is undefeated. There's no way M. Ryan is in the conversation after you throw 5 INTs in one game.
