91 yards away from the record. Anyone thinks he breaks it?
I think so, and I hope so.. he deserves it... both what he and Peyton have done this year after both having surgery is pretty cool... both battling for MVP and Comeback Player of the year. My vote is both are Co-MVP and Co-Comeback Players of the Year
I agree they should share both awards, 64 away now.
I think AD either needs to break it or the Vikes make the playoffs to win the MVP. Both might very well occur, though. Otherwise, Manning is the MVP, IMO...what he's done for that team is unreal. Don't get me wrong...AD is worth so much to the Vikings, but I think it hurts his case if they do not make the playoffs (fair or not).
I mean, Calvin Johnson broke Rice's record this year. But he's not going to win MVP, as his team sucked and a lot of his yards came in garbage time.
Ponder is making it look easy.
I agree, it will help his cause if they win the game and make the playoffs. It would be sweet if he broke the record and won the game.
AD is not a human being. Absurd.
Manning has actually put up his best statistical season other than 2004-05, when he went for 4557 yards, 49 TD/10 INT with a 121.1 passer rating. #1 seed in the AFC, too.
AD is 64 yards away from breaking the single season record. He is the 7th person in NFL history to eclipse 2,000 yards rushing. He is the biggest reason the Vikings are even in playoff contention.
AD also had surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL almost exactly one year ago today. Thats unreal and if he doesn't get the MVP award no one should.
Feed it to him every 1st and 2nd down here on out.
The torn ACL and MCL should have nothing to do with whether he wins the MVP. It is extremely, extremely impressive, but it has nothing to do with who the most valuable player is. Of course, the other reason you mentioned (his value to Minnesota) is exactly why he has a strong case for MVP.
Kum, they've still got a game to win, though...and GB would be on crack not to stack the box.

I want to see him take it to the house!
Coming back form an injury that takes most 1-2 years to fully recover from in about 8 months absolutely adds to how incredible his season has been.
I wouldn't out the game in Ponder's hand though. Give it to the guy who got you here.
Just wanted to point out that Dan Marino won the MVP in 1984, the year Dickerson rushed for 2105. The Rams DID make the playoffs, too.
Dickerson broke OJ Simpson's 1973 record of 2003 yards, even more impressive considering that he did it in 14 games. Simpson did win the MVP that season.
Man so many self inflicted for the VIkes, just dumb stuff
I've only watched a few mins of this game and already feel bad for CP7. His OL and Wr are bad.
Agree with Kum, feed it to him every time from here on out.
Yup. His best option (Harvin) is on IR. Rudolph is his second best option.
What about Manning's injury? The man could barely throw for a while.
I understand what you're saying. I just do not think how "incredible" his season has been is the predominant factor. I think I am more literal in determining the "most valuable player."
Another edit: In terms of doing more with less, Rodgers' name could be in the mix...he's done a lot with no running game, a makeshift line, crappy defense, and injured WRs all year.
I understand Manning's injury was very serious. He has weapons at his disposal. Great defense, two very good receivers in Decker and Thomas, good o-line, great special teams. Yes the Broncos and Manning are having a great season but he has the tools to succeed.
Rogers has a damn good offensive line, great receivers, damn good tight ends.
Peterson has absolutely nothing on that team. Oline isn't good (not one pro-bowler on that line), passing game isn't good the defense sucks. Every opposing team knows damn well that AD is getting the ball and there really haven't been any teams that have stopped him. He has single handedly put the Vikings on his shoulders and carried them to playoff contention.
Ponder gets bailed out by a GREAT play there by Jenkins.
Good job, Troy. No mention of the throw where it was placed right on the money. Can't stand him and Bucky.
45 yards. Can he do it
Ball was nearly picked. It was a poor decision imo
No offense, but Troy has actually played QB and isn't emotionally invested.
That throw was luck. Backpedaling into double coverage into the EZ. If that ball is picked, the Vikes lose their shot at reclaiming a lead.
Very fortunate outcome.
I don't think so. Hope I am wrong, I took a 3 hour break from studying to witness history.
