I think the co-MVP was a good idea. Manning reached an impressive mark with his 5th 4000+ yard year, and McNair was just amazing this year. However I am extremely disappointed in one award particularly:
Jamal Lewis getting Offensive Player of the Year. Just looking at running backs, there is no way he deserves it. Yes, he broke 2000 rushing yards, but his total yardage (rush + receive) didn't equal the amount that LT had.
LT had a beat up offensive line, no defense to keep them in close games where running is more preferred, so even matching Jamal Lewis's numbers would make his year impressive. However, on top of that, he managed to score more TDs, and had 0 fumbles, compared to Jamal Lewis's 6.
Also, how about Preist Holmes. His total yardage may have been about 150 shy of Jamal's, but scoring nearly twice as many TDs, and fumbling only 1 time makes him a lot more impressive. Jamal seems to be getting all this attention b/c he almost broke the rushing record, and b/c he was the 5th man to go over 2000 rushing yards. Well, Priest did break a record, and quite an impressive one at that. He broke two, the single season rushing TD record, and the single season total TD record.
A case could also be made for Ahaman Green.
Is there anyone else who feels that while Jamal's season was incredible, there were more deserving?
