Chris Johnson wins Offensive Player of the Year Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 13, 2010 10:45 AM ET Chris Johnson didn't get a MVP vote, but he will take home some hardware this offseason. Johnson was named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year Wednesday. Johnson earned 38 1/2 votes, while Drew Brees finished a distant second with nine votes. Peyton Manning got 1 1/2 votes, and Philip Rivers earned one. (So Manning was far more valuable than Brees, but not a better offensive player?) "I kind of realize what I did and I feel like I had a dream season," Johnson told the Associated Press. "I didn't even get one vote at all [for MVP]. Like the season I had, it seemed like, 'What more do they want me to do?' That just felt like rookie of the year; it's a quarterback thing I guess." Well, now Johnson has something. Even if we're not entirely sure what it signifies. It seems to be for best offensive player that was stuck on a bad team. Or the guy with the best stats other than the MVP. Or basically a way to give more players a taste of postseason honors. Whatever the reason, it's hard to argue that "Every Coach's Dream" doesn't deserve it.
