For the third time in his career, Peyton Manning was named the 2008 NFL Most Valuable Player.
He now joins Brett Favre as the only three time winners of the NFL’s top individual honor.
The AP reports that the Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback was a landslide winner Friday in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL. Manning also was the league MVP in 2003, when he shared it with Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair, and in 2004.
Speaking of Favre, how ridiculous do the New York Jets look now for trading for Favre, and kicking Chad Pennington’s ass to the curb?
Pennington finished second in the MVP voting as he guided Bill Parcells’ Miami Dolphins to a playoff berth.
