AP - MVP?

18 posts in this topic

I am so sick of all the talk that Peyton Manning should be the league's most VALUABLE player! Let's think about this for just a tick......Addai, Clark, Harrison, Wayne. All marquee players that bring high value to a team individually, much less combined. Not too hard to be a good (or great) qb when you're throwing to guys like that.

Now look at the Vikes. Who do we got of high value? Ummmm.....AP! That's it. We don't have any receivers or a tight end who could be compared with what Peyton's got. Without AP, the Vike's record would be reversed, or worse IMO.

Win out these last two games with AP leading the way, and hands down he gets the MVP award in my book. Nobody else has carried their team with the minimal support as AP has.

And oh yeah, I believe if we win out, we get 2nd seed in the NFC with 1st round by and a home game.

Go Vikes!

I agree, AP should be MVP.

But, Manning is outstanding also. He makes the rest of his team look good, just like AP can make our team look good.

But, AP should win...hands down.

Minnesota sports are always looked down upon by the mainstream media. Throughout the years twins players have been shafted for the mvp, cy young, and rookie of the year. Look at how many time Garnet finished runner up or third for the mvp in the NBA.

I agree with AP all the way. But those receivers probably wouldn't look as good without Manning chucking the rock to them either.

KG won one year didnt he?Santana wone the cy young,Mornoeu won mvp a couple years ago,AP won rookie of the year,Moss won rookie of the year...But yes,Peterson should win mvp this year.Hes sees 8 in the box all day every week and still pulls of 165 and lead the league in rushing.But hes barley in the conversation because of warner and brees.

We have to win out and Carolina needs to be the Giants, or we win out and Carolina looses the last 2.

Even though we have had some win the high awards, sports reporters even admit that often times Minnesota pro athletes get overlooked due to media coverage. I agree that AP should be MVP.

Heck, don't forget about Marty Cordova and Chuck Knoblauch, both ROYs.

I hope that AP gets mvp. The only thing that might hurt him is that he doesnt get alot of touch downs

After yesterdays performance he does not deserve mvp. Just one game but he had been coughing the ball up way too much.

MVP's lead their team at the end of the year in key games. He is young and maybe tried to do too many things. He does not deserve MVP after the last game unless he comes up big in the next game, and into the playoffs, IF we are in the playoffs.

I think AP will be in the running, but I think he will finish 3rd at best. Those that could be above him are Williams, Manning, or Brees. If Brees surpases Mario's record, good chance he might get it. I don't know, it's one of the closer MVP races we've seen in a while.

    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels. 
    • Day 4 Morning   I think we were both tired of trying to call birds across private fences, so we decided to try going for the distant gobbles I heard when I shot my bird.   There was actually a decent gravel road that went into this area and allowed us to have an easy walk into where I felt the birds should be.   We got in early to try to get there ahead of any other hunters, but it didn't seem to matter.   Forest roads were abundant, so walking was easy.  We went right to the spot I had a bird gobble from a few days prior, and waited.     It didn't take long for the flock to start making noise, and we only had to move a little ways to get close to them.   As usual the turkeys all came down and went away from us.  They set up shop on a long ridge and seemed content to just stay there.   We had no easy approach so set up our own position on the forest road we were on which was covered in tracks.   Other birds were gobbling in the distance the opposite way, and when one sounded close we chose to go for him.   Nothing came of that little walk other than the loss of a $65 custom call...  On the plus side we found a nice deer skull.     Back to the flock, one gobbler would respond to a crow call, so we knew they were still up on the hill.  We made a painfully slow walk straight at them since they were high enough up they hopefully wouldn't see us.  When we got to the timber they stopped responding, so we guessed they went over the top.  We worked our way up and found where they had been feeding.  Just shy of the top we set up to call just in case they were over the lip of the hill.     We received an immediate response to some lite hen yelps and clucks.  A hen with the gobbler was not at all pleased that we were there.  We got into a bit of a yelling match with her.  She was coming closer, dragging the gobbler with her.  When I heard drumming I motioned for my uncle to get the gun up since he was still calling.  In a few moments I saw a tail fan cresting the hill.  He angled left, looked around, went behind a tree.  I heard him go into strut and drum...   BANG!           
    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off.

    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
