Peyton Manning deserves NFL’s most-valuable-player award

No AFC South title.
Does Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning deserve to be the NFL’s most valuable player this season?
No question.
Sure, there are plenty of qualified candidates — among them quarterbacks Drew Brees, Chad Pennington and Kurt Warner; running back Adrian Peterson; and linebackers DeMarcus Ware and James Harrison — but it’s Manning who should get the award, which will be announced Friday by the Associated Press.
