NFL playoffs begin next week, kicking off the countdown to the Super Bowl. That also means the competition to be named the league's MVP has heated up. One of the top two contenders is Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick. Some think of him as the comeback story of the year, having returned to football after serving time for his dogfighting conviction. Tom Brady, the other top contender, seems to be leading his Patriots inexorably for the Super Bowl. So who deserves the title?

Takeaway sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul Matin says Tom Brady will get it. Nando DiFino, sports writer for The Wall Street Journal, makes the case for Vick.
