Default Re: NFL MVP & DMVP Rankings.

Only 2 RBs have won it in the past 10 years, and both had up around 30 TDs and played on teams with great records (13-3 and 14-2).

Here's the records of the teams that the MVP played on over the past 20 years (all teams made the playoffs):

'11 Packers 15-1
'10 Pats 14-2
'09 Colts 14-2
'08 Colts 12-4
'07 Pats 16-0
'06 Chargers 14-2
'05 Seahawks 13-3
'04 Colts 12-4
'03 Colts/Titans 12-4/12-4
'02 Raiders 11-5
'01 Rams 14-2
'00 Rams 10-6
'99 Rams 13-3
'98 Broncos 14-2
'97 Lions/Packers 9-7/13-3
'96 Packers 13-3
'95 Packers 11-5
'94 Niners 13-3
'93 Cowboys 12-4
'92 Niners 14-2

You could compare it to Sanders in 1997, where he shared the award, but he also had much less competition (nobody really outside of Favre).

Maybe 2005, where Alexander won the award over Manning, but the Seahawks still were 13-3.

But then there's 2003, which seems a bit odd. Priest Holmes put up the numbers and was on a 13-3 team, but lost out to McNair and Manning, while both had worse records.

I don't think Faulk had the top competition in 2000, so he stood out.

Davis won in 1998 against some really steep competition. I guess Cunningham and Young were 'punished' for having 2 topnotch WRs to throw to and a pro bowl RB.

I think the voting changed in 1997. I'm not sure about the 1993 season. You could make a case for Young (too many ints?), Rice (WRs don't win), and maybe Elway (9-7 record) over Emmitt.
