Excerpt: "</font></font><a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/dalessandro_victor_cruz_puts_g.html">The
continued rise of Victor Cruz</a> and the <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/giants_antrel_rolle_tom_coughl.html">new-found
harmony between DB Antrel Rolle and head coach Tom Coughlin</a> has us wondering
who you think is the Giants' MVP this season - where the "P" is gonna stand for
person, as Tom Coughlin may deserve some votes.<div class="entry-content">


Let's start with Coughlin - and to do that, let's go back to August and the
end of the lockout. Most Giants fans on NJ.com were convinced that there was a
talent drain and very little influx for the Giants as the rest of the league
went into a free-agent frenzy. Most Giants fans commenting on NJ.com thought
that spelled doom. Why didn't it? Could it be that the Giants' brass - as
opposed to the brass 90 miles south on I-95 - had their talent figured right?
Could it be that the Giants' coaching staff knew that what they had to work with
could be enough? And then did Coughlin get it done, without any star-studded
free agents, despite an injury-riddled defense? He got it done enough to win the
NFC East.<span class="pds-clear">
</span></p>And then three players stand out as possibilities.


Victor Cruz, who started the season as a possible fill-in for the departed
Steve Smith, ended up breaking the team receiving yardage record. His highlight
reel isn't just full of spectacular plays - it's full of game-winning plays.</p>


Jason Pierre-Paul was the first-round draft pick many NJ.com Giants fans
loved to hate. Now, with the off-field tumult that sometimes characterized the
Giants' d-line off the field, JPP was responsible for the tumult on the field,
shredding protection schemes, making teammates better, running his nonstop motor
all over the field.</p>


Eli Manning's detractors usually brush aside the Super Bowl ring as an
aberration, but it seems to have been a precursor of the real Eli - and last
year was the aberration. In a year when, coincidentally or not, his brother was
stuck off the field, Eli has completely come into his own as a passer, as a
quarterback in the fullest sense of the word and as a leader.</p>

tough one....</P>


IMO its a toss up between Cruz and Eli. But I would go with Eli since it starts and ends with him. Also while Cruz has been flat out terrific Eli has completed many passes to other receivers, has kept the Giants in many games, lead come backs, and controls the offense.His job has way more involvment in the success and failure of the Giants...</P>

However you break it up, these are the three players that have carried this team on their backs.</P>

No doubt It's Eli. While you could argue JPP is a better player than Eli and that Cruz has really helped Eli, Eli was the one who held the team together. With the worst running game in the league and one of the worst defenses in the league, the passing game was what saved us this year. Who's the head of the passing game? Who was the leader of the offense? Who lead 5 fourth quarter comebacks and 6 game winning drives? Who helped a player that is practically a rookie become break the Giants single season receiving yards record? The answer to all of that is Eli. Eli is the MVP.

I agree ... but for MVP status, I think we could win without JPP or Cruz. I don't think we could win without Eli.

You have to ask yourself, how bad would this team be without that player. There is no debate that this team would be far worse without Eli than any other Giant.

Eli has carried this team all year.
The guy is a winner. He doesn't care about stats or breaking records. He wants to win games. That's MVP material.

My vote is for Eli- everything on Offense goes thru him and he has had his best year so far this year. Cruz has developed into an awesome receiver thru hard work and being reliable target for Eli. The future is bright for him. JPP has also been amazing stud on Defense and a game changer. But, our biggest game changer has been Eli with all the comeback wins he has lead.

MVP discussion is kind of pointless in football with how important the QB is. I mean obviously it's Eli for us, we wouldn't win 5 games without him. But even a team like the Ravens, you would say that Suggs or Ray Rice are the keys to that team, but do they make the playoffs without Joe Flacco? I doubt it.

It's a fun question because it's exciting to see how well Cruz and JPP played but let me give you my best gmen08 impression and say

"Lol, a few weeks ago you were pissed Eli wasn't mentioned in league MVP discussion now you are debating the MVP of our own team? Typical GMB."
