I’m in the camp that says the MVP award has already been locked up by the Vikings all-world running back, Adrian Peterson, who after a devastating knee injury a year ago is by any measure having one of the most astounding seasons in the history of the NFL and is the only real offensive threat the Vikings have.

But in an age when passing dominates the offensive game plan and running backs are seen as an interchangeable dime a dozen, Adrian Peterson is the decided underdog in the MVP race. While I understand that this is the way things are these days, it doesn’t mean I have to like it or accept it.

I know there’s a lot of excitement and hype surrounding redshirt freshman Johnny Manziel, also known by the all-time nickname, Johnny Football, from Texas A&M. Make no mistake he is without question a great young quarterback who will garner plenty of Heisman votes. But I just don’t think he is a more important or more outstanding player than Manti Te’o.
