I'm serious.

The Jets are a team with a historically iffy defense, but they are an elite team against the rush this year despite having a fairly weak linebacking corps, and only a couple other folks on the DL even worth caring about. They force every team they've played to go to the air, which is mostly fine by them because they've got a fairly talented secondary.

Everybody is blown away by Favre's play on the offensive side of the ball, but considering the talent he's surrounded by I think it's more remarkable what Jenkins has done for the other side of the ball.

But I think the leading candidate for MVP this year is NOT Kurt Warner, who is throwing to two All Pro WRs, or Matt Cassell, who's doing the same, or Peyton Manning, who's doing the same, or Adrian Peterson, although he's not a bad pick. I like the Titans' Albert Haynesworth.

The Titans have a stout defense, but he makes them elite. No interior OL has really handled him very well except for the Jets yesterday. He is monstrous, incredibly strong, and very fast. He's not just the block of granite that Jenkins is, although he's that, too. He's also a frequent force in the backfield, and I think he's been more valuable to his team than any other player in the league.

You think the Jets would be 8-3 with Pennington?? My guess is, the would be like 6-5.

Favre is better than Pennington, but only slightly so. Favre has basically been a game manager, throwing short passes and dinking and dunking, Chad can be successful in that role.

Right now I'd give the nod to Haynesworth but there's still much football to be played.

I'm not sure the odds of a DT winning MVP are very good.

The odds of Jenkins winning it are practically non-existent. Haynesworth only has a chance if Warner slips up. The MVP award is basically the best QB/RB award.

A dark horse MVP candidate is Matt Ryan.

He's going to win OROY, he's not an MVP candidate. There is no chance in hell he wins MVP. He's been great this year, but he simply doesn't have the numbers.

Uh, there's a kid in Chicago who might have something to say about that...

He's only on pace for 1850 yards from scrimmage and 13 TD's...

6th in rushing, 2nd among RB's in receiving.

Total package.

You forgot that I drafted him in the 4th round in our CP Mock Draft :harumph:

Aslong as Matt Ryans team makes the playoffs....he's the QB and the big story on TV all the time...so he'd likely get the call over Forte.

If only the King Carl had drafted Peyton Manning, instead of Todd Blackledge.

yeah i hate seeing Haynesworth be so dominate. Makes the Sims pick that much more painful.

You underestimate the influence of the goodness-sucking vortex that Carl Peterson is.

I agree-Warner is a bitch

Farve has brought the Jets back from nowhere-Clear cut MVP
