Most valuable? Peyton is the classic example. You take his off the team and replace him with an average quarterback (say Garrard, for example) and you got a six or seven win team instead of a team that clinches home field in 13 games.

Take Johnson off and replace him with an average running back (Green Bays running back for example, I forget his name though) and Tennessee is obviously less explosive, but do they suffer a 6 game win difference? I doubt it.

But Johnson is having a heck of a year and is dominating his position more than any other player is dominating theirs. Not only does he have a legit possiblity to break 2000 yards, but he also has a chance to break Faulks rushing/receiving total yards record. He's having a great year, but he's not more valuable than Peyton Manning or Drew Brees.

Yeah I understand what you are saying although I think Peyton would be a bigger upgrade to any team that had average players at both spots...

like the Seahawks...

throw Peyton on Seattle and TJ Housh becomes a top 10 WR...and they probably make the playoffs...

throw CJ on the Seattle and that might just win them an extra game or two...

I think the reality of it is that MVP is the best player on the best team and OPOY is just the most outsanding offensive player for any team, which is stupid because MVP is not awarded to a team...
