Youth Eddie Jackson Jersey
FanPulse: Who is the NFL MVP after 4 weeks? Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Bears fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.So far through the first quarter of the NFL season, we have several candidates for league MVP stepping up already. If these players can keep up their stellar play, the race for the year end award could be a toss up. The most surprising name to be in the discussion is the Chicago Bears’ Khalil Mack. It’s not because he’s undeserving, but because this has historically been a quarterback or running back award since it started in 1957.The NFL hasn’t had a defensive player win this award since 1986 when the New York Giants’ Lawrence Taylor won. Before him, the last defensive player to win was defensive tackle Alan Page of the Minnesota Vikings. And that’s it. Those two, along with Washington Redskins’ kicker Mark Moseley in the strike shortened season of 1982, are the only non-QB/RB to win the league’s MVP award.Mack is currently second in the all-important FanPulse voting behind the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes Youth Eddie Jackson Jersey , and in front of the Rams’ Jared Goff, and the Saints’ Alvin Kamara, but I think Mack has staying power. Remember this is a guy that was just signed before the season started. His offseaosn workout was basically at the gym. He’s done all his damage, and won NFC Defensive Player of the Month, while working himself into football shape. Unless Mahomes continues his ridiculous pace, I think Mack may have what it takes to become the third defensive player to take the prize.What do you guys think?If you aren’t a part of WCG’s FanPulse, join now! When I spoke after the early Sunday afternoon games with both Bucs quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and Vikings safety Harrison Smith, I believed I was speaking to the NFC offensive and defensive players of the week, respectively. Then came Sunday night.Apparently , however, whoever it is that determines the top players of the week likes guys who play both halves of the game.That’s the only reason to explain the snubbing of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Bears linebacker Khalil Mack for awards that went to Fitzpatrick and Smith. In the first half of the Sunday night game, Mack redefined the term “dominant,” with a performance that included a pick-six and a Hollywood Henderson-style robbery of the ball from quarterback DeShone Kizer.The second half then became the Aaron Rodgers show, with one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time authoring one of his greatest performances of all time.Fitzpatrick and Smith also had dominant games, and maybe it’s refreshing that the size of the stage on which the prime-time performances occur won’t tip the scales away from the guys who get it done in the afternoon. But for as much as it felt like a foregone conclusion before Sunday night’s game that Fitzpatrick and Smith would be securing the distinction for Week One, it felt like Rodgers and Mack had eclipsed both of them on Sunday night.
