Truly a tremendous season.
But Brees' nod may be one of the best all-time examples of why postseason awards are -- for lack of a better adjective -- kind of stupid.
How can Peyton Manning be named the Most Valuable Player and then fail to be recognized as the most outstanding player on the offensive side of the football? How does that make any sense?
Sure, the argument exists that Manning's steady hand on the offense and his ability to lead are more impressive than his empirical stats, but come on. If he's not the best offensive player there is no way he can be the most valuable.
Anyone out there see it differently?
