As stated in a recent TD, ELI did nothing to deserve the MVP. Sure he played a DECENT game, and he avoided a sack at the end of the game, but his stats were average at best.
Check out the stats. MVP means most valuable:
RB: winner: 45 yards and 0 TD's VS loser: 36 yards and 1 TD
WR: winner: 6 for 84, 0 Td's VS loser: 11 for 103 yards and 0 TD
QB : winner: 255 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT VS loser: 266 yards, 1 TD and 0 Int
There is obviously no clear cut winner here. Saying ELI deserves it because his team won is just ridiculous. The fact that I am already down 17 votes shows how blinded people are. If you are gonna give to anyone, give it to TUCK. 6 tackles, 2 sacks and 1 forced fumble. The defense won them the game, and he stands out amongst them.
ELI did ok, but he was not the MVP. Any QB coulda done what he did. Just because he did something his brother didn't do THIS YEAR, doesnt make him an MVP. His stats were average at best.
