    You have Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings coming back from a knee injury just a year ago to all of a sudden coming 9 yards short of breaking the record that is still held by Eric Dickerson, You have Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos  who had multiple neck procedures and questions of whether or not he would play again, and you have Thomas Davis of the Carolina Panthers who tore the same ACL in his right knee 3 straight years in a row from 2009 to 2011 (That's right the same ACL in his right knee, Thomas Davis tore it 3 straight years in a row) and was able to play in all but 1 game in 2012. If there was a player that you know that deserves comeback player of the year, who would it be to you?

      I am a born and raised Coloradan/Bronco fan; but the things that Adrian Peterson did all season were truly remarkable. He lead the Vikings to the postseason while having only 850 yards less than his starting quarterback in a very pass happy NFL. We watched AP come back to full performance level week one, just 9 and a half months after shredding his knee. #AP2097.

    It's a tough one between Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning. Adrian Peterson had a knee injury and Peyton Manning had neck surgery and was out for an entire season. It's impressive that Manning has led the Broncos to an AFC West Title, plus a first round bye after his surgery. Adrian Peterson on the other hand has been a beast all season (and I'm a Packers fan). I think it's more difficult to rush for over 2,000 yards then it is to throw for 4,000. I'd have to go AP.

    I am not a big Bronco fan but you have to give Manning some respect.  I guess the thing that stands out to me is the fact that not only did he return from his injury, but he changed teams as well.  I have seen plenty of times when a star player changes teams and for whatever reason does not enjoy success with the new team.  To me, that puts Manning over the top, not only coming back from an injury but also changing teams in the process.  Impressive.

    I have to agree with atechwiz, Manning came back from a neck injury, changed teams, had to learn a completely new offense, new team mates, coachs etc, and still simply dominated. Peterson has been impressive as well, but I would give the nod to Manning.
