I'd say it was Ben, followed by Bell. I think history shows either of those two is a bigger loss to the team than AB.

Not to take anything away from AB, but either because of #7 or the depth in the passing game he is more "replaceable" than Bell or Ben.
If you're looking strictly at numbers and impact, AB probably was the more deserving of the 3.

I'm not going to argue with his own teammates.

I think this is as big of a no brainer as possible.

In my own opinion, Gilbert or maybe Haden is the real MVP, given how the team performed in their absence, but honestly AB is probably the MVP of the league based on commonly accepted criteria.

Ben doesn't seem to be seriously considered, probably because it's kind of cliche to give it to the QB. Ben has only been team MVP once (Bradshaw won twice).

Maybe, but missed too many games.

Hell, how about Boswell?

I don't read anything into it other than players seem reluctant to give team MVP to the QB (I don't think that's true of other teams, but seems to be with the Steelers, at least). They gave it to him early in his career...perhaps they give him a sentimental one if he comes back next year.

It makes sense. QB gets enough recognition (and money). Not that AB doesn't, I just think the organization views it mostly as a non-QB award.

Good point on Boz

Imagine last weeks game without Bell, but with AB & Ben. Now imagine it with AB & Bell but no Ben.

Then tell me again who the true MVP of this team is.

AB had a fantastic season. Chapeau.
