Our final stop in voting for midseason Most Valuable Players for each NFC South team will be the first-place New Orleans Saints.

I’ll reveal my choices for each NFC South team next week, but this is your chance to voice your opinion.

Take a look at the SportsNation poll to the right and cast your vote. The choices are Drew Brees, Darren Sproles and Jonathan Vilma.

I was limited to three choices and this one was a tough call. Tight end Jimmy Graham came very close to getting on the ballot because he’s having an excellent season. Then again, so are Brees, Sproles and Vilma.

Feel free to explain your vote in the comments section below.

Time to continue our voting for the midseason Most Valuable Player for each NFC South team. This time, we’re going with the Atlanta Falcons.

They’re 4-3, but on a two-game winning streak after getting off to a rocky start and they play at Indianapolis on Sunday. If they win that one, they’ll be headed for a Nov. 13 showdown with the New Orleans Saints at the Georgia Dome.

I’ll reveal my midseason MVP choices for each team next week. But now is your chance to share your opinions.

Take a look at the SportsNation poll to the right and cast your vote (the choices are Matt Ryan, Michael Turner and Sean Weatherspoon) for the Falcons. Feel free to explain your vote in the comments section below.

Let’s continue our voting for midseason Most Valuable Player for each NFC South team with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

I’ll reveal my choice next week. I’m leaning strongly in one direction, but that could change depending on what happens when the Bucs play at New Orleans.

But this is your chance to cast a vote for the player you think has done the most for the Bucs so far this season.

Take a look at the SportsNation poll to the right and cast your vote. The choices are quarterback Josh Freeman, left tackle Donald Penn and cornerback Ronde Barber.

I’ll admit it was tough to settle on those three because the Bucs have been up and down this season and no one has been more up and down than Freeman. The Bucs also have had some other guys who have played well at times, but not at others. I included Penn and Barber because they’ve probably been the most consistent Bucs.

Call It: Panthers' midseason MVP

Next week, I’ll roll out my choice for the midseason Most Valuable Player for each NFC South team.

I’ve got my mind made up, unless something really dramatic happens in Sunday’s games. But I won’t reveal my choices yet.

Meantime, let’s hear what you have to say. I’m going to roll out a poll for each NFC South team and let you cast your vote for the MVP.

Let’s start off with the Carolina Panthers. Take a look at the SportsNation poll to the right and cast your vote.

I’ve given you three choices -- Cam Newton, Steve Smith and Jordan Gross. I thought about including defensive end Charles Johnson, but I can’t in good faith include anyone from Carolina’s defense in an MVP conversation right now.

After you vote, feel free to explain your choice in the comments section below.
