By the definition of the award MVP, Manning has the edge.
Brady absolutely deserves consideration in the sense that he should be a "finalist", but unless he vastly outperforms Manning the rest of the season, he doesn't deserve it over him.
What do you mean by this? The only thing holding Thomas back were the injuries and mental mistakes. He has the talent to be one of the best WRs in the league and he has shown that this season. Obviously having Manning throwing him the ball helps but he has also helped Manning a lot. IMO, Thomas is better than Welker, Lloyd, and Decker. This isn't just another case of Manning making a WR look good (eg. Collie).
I agree with you about the Manning vs Brady MVP discussion. Manning is doing more with less around him. My vote would go to Manning.
