Ahmad Bradshaw makes MVP Watch list

I wondered aloud last week if New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw didn't deserve to be ahead of teammate Hakeem Nicks on NFC West blogger Mike Sando's weekly MVP Watch list. Well, guess who showed up at No. 10 on the list this week?

That's right, not even the bye week could prevent Bradshaw from cracking the top 10 of one of the most prestigious MVP Watch lists on the ESPN.com Blog Network. Here's what Sando had to say about his epiphany:

"Hakeem Nicks represented the Giants on the MVP Watch list a week ago," writes Sando. "Bradshaw takes his turn this time. He leads the NFL with 10 carries of at least 20 yards. His next opponent, Seattle, has allowed seven such plays this season, tied for 10th-most in the league."

Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and Bradshaw were the three players on the list who were unranked last week. If you'd like to personally rank the MVPs, here's a unique opportunity to do so.
