Peterson deserves the comeback player of the year award, all Manning had to do was stand around all day and throw the ball. Manning took a playoff team back to the playoffs, Peterson took a mostly unchanged 3-13 team to the playoffs the next year all by himself.
The only reason Tebow didn't start is because the Jets only brought in Tebow for publicity and ticket/jersey sales. Along with the fact that Rex Ryan and the Jets' front office stubbornly stuck with Sanchez even though he was stinking it up every game.
I agree that Peterson definitely should win Comeback Player of the Year.
Thank you Edge.
