An NFL first: four Super Bowl MVP QBs in playoffs

If we already didn't know this was the year of the quarterback -- or the past decade of the quarterback -- this incredible fact seals it.

For the first time in league history the playoffs will feature four Super Bowl quarterbacking MVPs: Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Eli Manning and Aaron Rodgers. This according to NFL PR guru, Dan Masonson.

That is a great deal of quarterbacking firepower and they're all in one playoff.

I'm thinking this record won't last long just like other offensive records that were obliterated this season. The NFL has geared the sport towards the quarterbacks and because of that it could be some time before a running back or defensive player, for example, earns MVP honors. Would it be a stunner if Ben Roethlisberger got to a Super Bowl this year, won the MVP, and then all five of these players make the postseason next year? No. See what I mean.

Quarterbacks have always ruled the sport but their dominance now is unprecedented and this latest interesting statistic only proves that.

Hell, who knows, with the way quarterbacks are dominating, maybe Andy Dalton will join the MVP Four next year.

I'm surprised Freeman didn't put 'A NFL First: [..]'. He knows when to put 'an's!

It's a shame another one, Peyton Manning, is at home.

The "host the Super Bowl" jinx continues. Can we permanently have the Super Bowl in Dallas then?

Umm...that's JOE FLACCO. The article fails to list Alex Smith. He has a Super bowl MVP award that he wins in February of 2012. 



"Can I predict the future? No, but I do a good enough job to determine what will happen, what can happen and what won't happen."---
I don't know who says this but I got it from a movie I saw a few years back.
