This is a tough call...either one should also be in the running for MVP.
Peterson is still nearly unstoppable after blowing out his knee, and Manning is playing close to the level he was before he had multiple neck surgeries.
Jeez...I gotta go with Manning, while AP gets MVP honors, because he sat out a whole year and even traveled overseas for surgery. I also think there is a much lower probability of playing at a competitive level after having surgery on your neck. There is a lot more that can go wrong. Knee surgery is pretty commonplace, although I do not want to take anything away from what AP is doing. Especially running all over the Bears yesterday.
Co-Comeback Players of the Year anyone???
