Grossman for MVP
In yesterday's blog post, ESPN.com's Bill Simmons agreed, stating, "couldn't you have made a legitimate case for Rex Grossman winning the MVP? What single player did more to affect that game for the Colts? Think about the definition of that award -- it goes to the most valuable player on the field, right? Who was more valuable to that final score than Rex?"
Now, I find evidence that the betting markets agree. Real time analysis of the change in probability of a Colts victory shows, "Rex Grossman’s poor play contributed 36.5% to the Colts’ chance of winning, more than twice as much as the top performing Colt."
