Who should be NFL MVP and why?

Cam Newton should be the NFL MVP without question. No other player did more for his team this year than Cam did. He lead the NFL’s highest scoring offense with his arm and his legs. Cam threw for 3,837 yards with 35 TD’s in the regular season, plus he has tacked on 496 yards with 3 TD’s this postseason — and that’s just what he’s done through the air. What makes Cam so special is that he can really hurt defenses with his legs too. That’s why he led all QB’s in the regular season in rushing with 636 yards and 10 TD’s. Since the post season began, he has added another 50 yards and 2 TD’s on the ground. For those of you who are counting, Cam has accounted for over 5,000 yards of offense and 50 touchdowns in all this year! Those numbers have MVP written all over them. (1)

Russell-Wilson-HD-Wallpapers-5Russell Wilson. The common answer is obviously going to be Cam, but Wilson just played better. Wilson was by far the highest rated passer at 110.1, Cam was at #8 with 99.4. Wilson had the 3rd highest completion rate, while Cam was at 28th among qualified quarterbacks. The only thing Cam really beats him in is rushing stats, and it’s mostly just the touchdowns. I remind you, Wilson did all of this with a terrible offensive line. The biggest argument for Cam is that he has no help around him. Well, I’m sure Wilson would LOVE to have Greg Olsen! Wilson’s two top running backs became injured, the one pass-catcher that was supposed to do anything (Graham) got hurt, and he was left with receivers that are not much better (if at all) than the was the Panthers have.

Cam Newton should definitely be the MVP for the simple fact that he has nearly singlehandedly led the Panthers to powerhouse status. Going from a joke 7-8-1 division winner to 15-1 this season is a huge feather in Cam’s cap. Plus he’s been passing and running this season like no one’s business. (3)

This is an easy one for me to decide who should be the NFL MVP.  My vote would go to Cam Newton.  Cam Newton brought his team to a 15-1 record and now they are heading to Super Bowl 50.  Cam Newton has not stopped being great, which is why he deserves to be the MVP. (4)

The NFL’s MVP should be Cam Newton. Who has done better with less? His “star” wide receiver is Ted Ginn Jr., who drops pass after pass. (5)

Cam Newton, hands down. I already wrote a much lengthier article on this topic, but here are some key notes: Newton led the NFL in total touchdowns with 45. He had more passing and rushing touchdowns combined than 27 other TEAMS. He was the first player to ever throw for 35 touchdowns and run for 10 in a single season. He had a league-leading four game-winning drives. He tossed five touchdown passes on three different occasions. He was in charge of an offense that led the league in scoring, and became only the seventh team in history to finish a regular season with 15 or more wins. And he did it with Ted Ginn, Jericho Cotchery, and Devin Funchess as his primary wide receivers. (6)
