For this year only... IMO...
2) R. Wilson
3) A. Luck
Personally, I want to see Wilson succeed the most.
You kidding with this MVP crap? Peyton/Brady/Brees and Rodgers are all ahead of him IMO (Brady and Peyton definitively ahead), and that's just at the QB spot. AP at RB, hell Megatron might be ahead of him (he's on pace to break Jerry Rice's record of most receiving yards in a season). And this is just the offensive skill positions.
RG3 looks great, but give me a break with the MVP crap. If a QB leading a team to a sub-500 record and increasing the team's win total by say 2 wins is enough for MVP, then the rest of the league had to blow. And they do not.
Not as big of a reach as Blaine Gabbert. It's a pretty telling indicator when Chad Henne has a better influence on your passing game.
Let me ask you this. Who has done more with less? Look at the team that surrounds Peyton(great defense, great offensive line, and one of the games best young WR's), Brady(not much to say here), Brees(more offensive weapons than 90% of the league - Jimmy Graham, need I say more?), Rodgers(again, look at his team). Peyton is having a great year, but look at how many passing attempts the guy has - 447. He also has 11 turnovers. Brees has thrown the ball 50+ times per game, so had Brady. When you do that, the stats will look good.
Now go look at the Redskins. Garcon - their best receiver, missing for 8 games. Lose their RT Brown for the season. Lost their starting RB for the season. Rookie RB, rookie QB, 2nd worst passing defense in the NFL. Defense has lost 5 starters for the season. After all this, somehow, one QB has kept them in the playoff hunt, and made them relavent again. I will argue that if the Redskins make the playoffs, RG3 should at least be in consideration for MVP. Now, I fully don't expect him t win it, but you can't tell me there is a guy who hs done more, with less, than RG3 has this season.
BTW, the comment I made to you about MVP was kind of a joke, but if you want, I can easily make a case for it.

Yeah, the usually don't give MVP's to guys who are leading their team to a losing record.
Peyton and Brady are the clear frontrunners for the MVP this year. Probably Payton because of "the comeback" even though Brady has slightly better numbers.
AP has done more with less. Not sure it's even a debate. Ponder is garbage. He is that entire offense and they have the 20th ranked defense.
Hell, Sexy Rexy went 5-8 with less talent at RB in Washington last year
Also, what is Brady's not much to say? He's got Welker (wonder who made him great), good TE play and good RB play. His defense is crap, like usual. He's won 6 straight. Peyton is bringing one mediocre team to competitiveness.
What about JJ Watt in Houston? I'd throw him up there too. And Rodgers has an awful run game and Jennings has been out all year. Think it's a coincidence he's made his rag tag team of WR's look like All Pro's?
Sorry to rant, I just don't see him in the top 5 of the MVP race right now. It's not a knock on him, I just wouldn't put him anywhere near the conversation. ROY, obviously he's right at the top or second, depending who you ask. I'd have him first. But I couldn't make a case for him for MVP over Brady/Manning/AP at this point, and I don't think there's much case for him over Rodgers either.
The season is not over is it? And, if you watch any Redskins games, you'll see that 3 losses can easily be pinned on the poor play of the Redskins secondary. Either way, I do agree, that if the Redskins don't make the playoffs, there is no way RG3 is even in he discussion.
whoa... What about Russell Wilson for the Hawks....His 2,344 passing yards (19td's and 8 int's), 298 rushing yards and a QB passer rating of 95.2. Not to bad for the former 3rd round pick. Game winning 97 yard drive in OT against the Bears yesterday.
Yeah, it's not over, but I just can't see Washington climbing into the playoffs. But even if RGIII was on a playoff team, I don't think he overshadows Brady and Peyton. I really hope he gets ROTY over Luck though.
