FHigh only one day for the NFL to start playing and there is already talk of who could be the candidates for the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of the season. The Athletic has conducted a survey of 18 people, including eight general managers, three top executives, five coaches and two assistant coaches. About who they think can take the prize. The surveys have been anonymous, so the identity of these people is unknown, but the survey has yielded some interesting results.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen super by difference to the rest of the nominees. 10 of the 18 votes went to him.
The votes were distributed as follows:
- Josh Allen, QB of the Bills with 10 votes.
- Aaron Rodgers, QB of the Green Bay Packers with three votes.
- Patrick Mahomes, QB of the Kansas City Chiefs with one vote
- Russell Wilson, QB of the Denver Broncos, with one vote
- Aaron Donald, defensive lineman for the Los Angeles Rams, with one vote
Allen’s rise has been superlative, and the league expects him to become the next superstar. Right now, he is already the face of the Bills franchiseThe 26-year-old completed 66.1 percent of his passes in the last two seasons for 8,951 yards73 touchdowns and 25 interceptions, while also rushing for 1,184 yards and 14 touchdowns.
“Allen is just different,” one of the voters told The Athletic.
I think he’s about to put the league aside”
As for the other candidates, Aaron Rodgers, four times best player and the current MVP, who has won the award for two consecutive years. He is going to have a sensible loss this campaign, it is Davante Adams, who is with the Las Vegas Raiders this season. The Packers lose their wide receiver, and more importantly, Rodgers loses one of his main partners on offense, which has reduced his chances of getting the prize for the third time in a row.
A similar case is that of Patrick Mahomesthe best player of the 2018 season, will not be able to count on the presence of his wide receiver, Tyreek Hill, who has gone to the Miami Dolphins. So the league and its fans are curious how Mahomes will adapt the offense.
