View Full Version : Steelers MVP

12-15-2009, 01:10 PM
The Pro Bowl thread reminded me that the Steelers will be picking their team MVP next week.

So who should it be?

And who will it be?

Here's mine.

Who should it be?

It should be Ben. Yeah I know he's had a couple lousy games. Yeah I know he set a bad example coming into camp doughy and not doing a helluva lot to improve upon that condition as the season went on. But imo with a lesser qb this offense would be an absolute joke. We might not have 3 wins and most of those close losses would be double digit beat downs.

Who will it be?

Well first off we can safely eliminate Ben because as we all know he doesn't have enough popularity in the locker room to garner the neccesary votes on an award voted for by members of the team.

So in a close 3 way race I say Ward will get it in a nod over James Harrison and Santonio Holmes.

he leads the team in interceptions, and we are undefeated with him in the line up.

Troy. 4-0 with him 2-7 without him...

12-15-2009, 02:13 PM
Ben- but he can only do so much when he's laying on his back.

troy, hes the only one whose been consistent...wen he plays...the steelers defense as a whole would be the browns, raiders, and chiefs mvp of our team

methinks tomlin needs to send a message by NOT allowing an MVP.

Tiny...and maybe considered petty....but needed.

Arians, without him we wouldn't be where we are today. :rolleyes:

Troy should get it if they do hand one out.

Mendenhall - the way he came back after being in the dog house.

12-15-2009, 04:22 PM
No doubt - Polamalu.

Sepulveda has also had his fair share of reps this year... :thumbsup:

If Troy was healthy, he would be the MVP (even injured he is a VERY close 2nd)

If they give it a few more games before deciding it could be Lamar Woodley. During this slump he and Santonio are the only two players that have been consistently good.

Harrison the guy has never once taken a play off and is held constantly and the refs seem to never call it half as much as they should.

12-15-2009, 09:02 PM
santonio holmes, the man has shown what he is capable of this year :tt02:

santonio holmes, the man has shown what he is capable of this year :tt02:

As I previously said Santonio and Lamar Woodley have been the Steelers best players for the last 5 or 6 games. But i still couldn't bring myself to vote for Santonio for team MVP if I had a vote. Those end zone drops he had in the Bears game and the last Bengals game were season changing plays. I just can't get myself past them enough to think of Holmes as MVP worthy.

But I'll say this, Santonio is on the verge of becoming an elite receiver. Maybe next year will be the one he puts it together for 16 games.

Mendenhall......He's been insane this year. Over 5.0 ypc this year i think

Carolina Steelers

Mendenhall should be MVP needs to get more carries. I love Troy but hes only played 4 gms out of 13, just cant give it to him. I know what he means to the team but still he might only play 1/4 of the gms this yr.

1. polamalu
2. james harrison
3. BR

I would have to say Mendenhall or Woodley.

12-16-2009, 09:05 AM
Polamalu has only played 4 games this year, sorry, but he isnt the team MVP if he hasnt played much.

If Ben gets to 4,000 yds passing, he would get mine since I dont think a Steelers QB has ever achieved that benchmark. Ben would get my vote if he does indeed reach this milestone.

12-16-2009, 09:13 AM
KIESEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With Smith and Troy being out, he has been the dominant Steeler. The only O player I would consider is Mendy.

12-16-2009, 09:22 AM
Can't be Troy...he has been a "spectator" for most of the season not a "player". The most consistent, reliable, and valuable player this year has been Hines Ward. Tone has dropped too many balls and has been absent in many. Ben cannot check down to save his life, and has thrown too many red zone picks. By default it's Hines Ward.

I'm going with Limas Sweed

Honorable mention to Bruce Arians.
