The only other position player with a serious shot at winning the trophy would be a running back. Even when Randy Moss had his monster year in New England, he wasn’t even considered as a finalist by most.
As we enter the 2011 season, guys like Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Rivers, Brees and Roethlisberger will all obviously be front-runners for the award.
If you just look at the running backs though, there are five guys I see having MVP-caliber seasons. The usual suspects are there, but there might be some surprising names too. If anyone is going to be able to take the award away from a quarterback this year, it will be one of these five tailbacks.
