Peyton Manning unanimous CBSSports.com NFL MVP

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Offensive rookie of the year | Defensive rookie of the year | Comeback player of the year | Disappointment of the year | Coach of the year | Defensive MVP

The case for Peyton Manning: This is the easiest argument you'll face all year long. Manning was the MVP from start to finish in 2013. He started the season by throwing seven touchdowns against the Ravens in the 2013 NFL Kickoff and he never looked back, putting a bow on the greatest statistical season by a quarterback in NFL history with a four-touchdown effort in a Week 17 win over the Raiders. Manning completed 68.3 percent of his passes and threw for 5,477 yards. He threw 55 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions. The Broncos were one of the two best teams in football the entire year.

The case against Peyton Manning: If you've got one, feel free to let me know, but, really, you should probably just stop talking.

Why Peyton Manning is our choice: Did you see those freaking numbers? The only thing that will keep Manning from having what will go down as the greatest season by a quarterback in NFL history is a loss against the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. There was no other choice and he was our unanimous selection.

Will he take home the hardware? Unquestionably. Manning is as big a lock as there is in MVP voting history.
