[quote user="RoanokeFan"]GIANTS' HOT TOPIC: WHO'S YOUR MVP SO FAR? - VOTE
Excerpt: "The continued rise of Victor Cruz and the new-found harmony between DB Antrel Rolle and head coach Tom Coughlin 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Vote in our poll and explain your vote below. Who's your Giants Most Valuable Person for the regular season?
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...
