USA Today announces Vikings MVP

Interesting pick by USA Today, for the Vikings' MVP.

The paper named an MVP on every team, and the Vikings' winner was G Steve Hutchinson. Here is the paper's justification: "Yes, Adrian Peterson had a stellar rookie season. But Hutchinson is the best player on arguably the NFL's best offensive line. He paved the way for 16 games against nine- and 10-man fronts as the Vikings finished as the league's top rushing team. Peterson missed 2½ games and disappeared down the stretch."

While the Vikings do have an outstanding offensive line, I'm fairly certain this is not the best unit in the entire league. RT Ryan Cook still looked shaky at key stretches and on key plays (safety against the Denver Broncos). The Vikings O-line was outstanding against the run, but struggled to protect the quarterback in several games. The offensive line in New England isn't too shabby, and neither are the ones in San Diego, Jacksonville, Dallas and Green Bay, just to name a few.
