Well, today's playoff performance should temper all the "Chad Pennington should've won the MVP award" talk. I thought he deserved to be in the conversation, but it's hard to argue against Peyton Manning landing the honor; the Colts won their final nine games of the regular season, and unlike Pennington, Manning the Elder had no running game to fall back on.
Via ESPN.com's Tim Graham, Pennington wasn't just bad against the Ravens, he was as dreadful as he's ever been during his nine-year NFL career. And given that he was benched for Kellen Clemens last season, that's saying a whole lot.
