the NFL MVP vote 

After reading Michael Silver's piece in Sports Illustrated (subscription req.) this week i'm on board the Manning for MVP band wagon. My favorite part from the piece:
Likewise, Manning says outsiders can be fooled by his own affable exterior. "If people think I'm a laid-back guy," he says, "that's their mistake." Yes, he makes an effort to be friendly, chatting up rookie free agents at minicamps and talking with well-wishers at airports and restaurants. But on the field Manning can be caustic and exacting. Tight end Marcus Pollard remembers questioning Manning on a play call during practice early in the quarterback's career. "Hey," Manning snapped, "if I tell you it's Easter, you'd better hunt for eggs."
