    Who is the 2018 NFL MVP?

    Denver got the ball with 1:51 remaining. Had Rivers not thrown an incompletion on the Chargers' last third down, they would have had around 1:11 remaining. As it is, they drove 76 yards to the Chargers' 16 yard line, and Keenum completed 5/5 passes for 84 yards (he completed a 6th pass for 10 yards but OPI was called). But they didn't need to get that far; they could have kicked a longer FG. Yes, had Rivers not thrown an incompletion on the Chargers' last third down, it would have significantly increased the Chargers' chance of winning. But it would not have sealed anything. I'm going to stop responding on this tangent at this point, since it is hijacking the thread.

    You are ignoring the fact that the Chargers defense allowed Keenum to go 5/5 for 84 yards in 1:47 with no timeouts on the ensuing Broncos drive that led to the game winning field goal, including completions of 38 and 30 yards. Even after the Rivers play being discussed here, the Chargers defense should have secured the win but didn't. The outcome was determined much more by the defense choking than Rivers.

    Yes. And if any one of many other mistakes were not made by the Chargers in that game... they win... period.

    Rivers wasn't solely responsible for that loss. The team had 14 penalties, allowed a fake punt conversion for the second week in a row, and gave up 2 TDs and a FG in the last 17 minutes of the game. Rivers made 3 bad plays in that game, but there was plenty of blame to go around.

    Week 15 - TNF - Chargers @ Chiefs

    While those two calls/no-calls at the end were pretty brutal, I'm not sure how anyone can say that it was a screw job after the two terrible defensive holding calls extended the Chiefs' last scoring drive twice and the refs failed to call two pretty obvious helmet to helmet hits against the Chiefs on Los Angeles's last drive. The refs we're just really really terrible all around tonight. The officiating has been a joke all year and seems to be declining as the year progresses.

    Yesterday was a MVP caliber performance for Rivers. Entered game without top 2 RBs (Gordon, Ekeler) and top TE (Henry), then lost WR1 Allen in the 2nd quarter. While he did throw 2 interceptions, he also threw for 313 yards and 2 TDs, despite being under heavy pressure throughout the game, and he led 2 TD drives in the last 8:15 to win the game. In a road game in a hostile environment against the team with the best record in the AFC. If the Chargers win out and KC loses a game, they will have won 12 of 13 games, including road wins at SEA, TEN (London), PIT, KC, and DEN, plus BAL at home, and they will earn the #1 seed in the AFC. It will still be quite a challenge for them to beat BAL next week and win at DEN in week 17, and KC finishes with OAK, so they would probably need to lose at SEA next week. Plus, Brees may be the frontrunner, anyway. But as a Chargers and Rivers fan, it is nice for him to be in the race.

    Where would you rank Emmitt Smith?

    I agree, it was that word choice that caused me to respond.

    That happened 1 time in Sanders' career. In 1995, Detroit was #2 in both passing yards and passing TDs. And in 1992, Dallas was #5 in both. Not seeing a real difference. More importantly, I am very surprised that posters like you and @Biabreakable are citing volume stats as proof of being 'potent'.

    Define potent

    Like others, I disagree completely with this. In a comparison of Emmitt vs. Sanders, Emmitt had a better OL, QB, WR1, TE, and FB. Detroit may have had a better WR2 and/or WR3, but that's about it.

    Week 15 - TNF - Chargers @ Chiefs

    Abnormal number of BS defensive holding calls against the Chargers in this game. And they are affecting the outcome

    As always happens in these discussions, the discussion is mixing top career vs. top player. A player must certainly be an all time great to have an all time great career, but the player with the best career is not necessarily the best player. IMO there are several RBs who were better players than Smith, including Payton, Brown, and Sanders for sure. I would also choose others like Faulk and Tomlinson but I understand that they are more debatable since playing at a high level for a long time is a big plus for Emmitt.

    1965-1969 are the 5 seasons before Sayers' career was ended by injuries. Sayers 1965-1969: 64 games 955/4866/39 rushing (5.1 ypc) - #1 in NFL in rushing yards and ypc (min 300 carries) and #2 in rushing TDs 111/1313/9 receiving (11.83 ypr) 5 1st team All Pro selections Kelly 1965-1969: 68 games 925/4451/51 rushing (4.91 ypc) 103/1334/8 receiving (12.95 ypr) 3 1st team All Pro selections In fewer games and carries, Sayers outproduced Kelly in rushing yards (total, per game, per carry). He also had more receptions, and receiving TDs. He would have had more receiving yards if they played the same number of games. Kelly had more TDs, but Sayers was #2. Kelly also played for a much better team which presumably gave him a lot more scoring opportunities, which I expect accounts for the disparity in TDs. I never advocated that Sayers should be in a top 10 of all-time list, but IMO you are doing him a disservice with some of your commentary.

    Sayers was 1st team All Pro in every season in which he played more than 2 games, which included the first 5 seasons of his career.

    Because the NFL game of the 60s was exactly the same as the NFL game of the 90s? You are not one of the posters on this board I would expect to say this sort of thing.
