Adding another achievement to his Hall of Fame resume, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning won his record-setting fourth Most Valuable Player award.

Manning had been tied with Brett Favre, the only other player to win the award three times. Manning was selected by a panel of 50 reporters and broadcasters selected by the Associated Press. (I am one of those on the committee, and I voted for Manning.) 

Manning wound up with 4,500 passing yards and 33 touchdowns, the second highest total in his 12-year career. He broke his own team record with 393 completions and a 68.8 completion percentage.

He led seven fourth-quarter comebacks in the Colts' 14-0 start, a league record for a single season.
