In all honesty, it's probably the right choice, but it wouldn't be a subjective award without a little bit of online controversy. And the fact that Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson received zero first-place votes is providing it.
The second-year stud rushed for 2,006 yards and scored 16 total touchdowns for his team, in one of the more impressive years for a running back in recent memory.
It brings up that old question of what "most valuable" really means. Is it the best player on the best team? The most outstanding player on a "good" team? The player most valuable to his specific team.
While Johnson has none of these answers for us, he did provide some levity with a tweet this morning that read, "Do any body got payton address I got to go get my award."
Clearly Manning can't be the MVP if the league's premier players don't even know how to spell to his first name.
Do you think Johnson should have gotten some love from the voters or did the Titans' lackluster season eliminate him from consideration?
