  1. Quinn for Defensive Player of the Year

    Mike Sando

    There was no debate in selecting the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year for 2012. There was Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, and then way down below there was everyone else. Watt led the league in sacks with 20.5 and had more pass breakups...

  2. NFL's top five building-block players

    Mike Sando

    Building a championship NFL team is a challenging enterprise. The draft and free agency offer limited opportunities. Great players are scarce, and great quarterbacks scarcer. If you happen to draft first when Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck is availabl...

    Mike Sando

    The St. Louis Rams finished tied for the NFL lead in sacks with 52 last season. William Hayes collected seven of them while playing on a one-year deal worth $900,000. That was a bargain by NFL standards. 2008 NFL Draft Class Sack Leaders ...

  7. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    Adrian Peterson is making our weekly MVP discussion more compelling all the time. The Minnesota Vikings' ligament-defying running back has rushed for 212, 210, 182, 171, 154, 153, 123, 108 and 102 yards in games this season. His total for those ni...

  8. Which defenders get hands on the football

    Mike Sando

    Sacks, passes defensed and interceptions carry different values depending on situations. A pass defensed to stop the opponent's fourth-down play in the final seconds could mean much more than an interception on a Hail Mary as the second quarter co...

    Five of our eight NFL divisional bloggers think Peyton Manning stands as the favorite for league MVP through Week 14. Two of the bloggers favoring Tom Brady have something in common: Both were at Gillette Stadium for Brady's four-touchdown perform...

  11. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    The Chicago Bears have a 13-2 record in Jay Cutler's past 15 starts. They have a 1-6 record in the games he has missed during that time. That has to make Cutler a prime candidate for MVP Watch, right? His presence must mean everything for the B...

  12. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    No defensive player has won MVP honors in the NFL since Lawrence Taylor following the 1986 season. The 2011 draft is doing its part to change the trend. That draft has produced the top three sack leaders in the NFL through Week 11. J.J. Watt, w...

  13. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    Running backs Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch have become regulars on the MVP Watch list not only for the yards they gain, but also for how they gain them. Ranking 1-2 in rushing yardage sets them apart. The fact that they also lead the NFL in ...

  14. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    How nice of Peyton Manning to throw a couple of interceptions last week, just to change up things. The Denver Broncos quarterback had posted a 14-1 ratio of touchdowns to INTs over his previous five games. His odds for winning a fifth MVP award no...

  15. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    Let's just say some were a bit skeptical upon seeing Peyton Manning atop the MVP Watch list a week ago. "I totally disagree," wrote a colleague who shall remain nameless. Looks like Manning might be staying awhile in the No. 1 spot. The Denv...

  16. Mike Sando's MVP Watch

    Mike Sando

    The Chicago Bears have owned one of the NFL's best records, backed by a dominant defense. They haven't had an obvious MVP candidate. How about Charles Tillman? The 10th-year cornerback earned Pro Bowl honors for the first time last season. He b...
