What about this guy:

Peyton Manning is a very deserving candidate, but I'm stunned at how little consideration Tom Brady is getting. Sure, Manning's comeback story makes him a "stronger" candidate than Brady in the media's eyes, but let's look at the facts for a moment:

- Brady and Manning have virtually identical stats.
- Brady and Manning have the same numbers of wins.
- Brady beat Manning's team by 10+ points.
- Brady's offense is outproducing Manning's offense by a fair margin.

I'm not saying Brady should be the clearcut favorite, but he definetely should get as much consideration as Manning. I wouldn't be disappointed if Manning ended up winning it over Brady, he deserves it, but I'd be shocked if Brady wasn't in the top 3. Sure, there is a lot of football left to be played and things could change, but as of now, I think Brady deserves to be considered as one of the 2 or 3 leading candidates.

However, I do agree with this guy. I expect the media to vote for Peyton in strong numbers, even if there are equally/more deserving candidates. It would be absolutely surprising if Peyton doesn't end up winning it. Is he a deserving candidate? Absolutely! Should he be the prohibitive favorite? Hell no! Should be a VERY close vote this year, but I have a feeling it won't be.
