CRIS CARTER: But the reason why you don't make a wide receiver, all right, the MVP is because you can do this without him. Calvin Johnson did the same thing or even better. His team was 4 and 12, all right? Wide receivers is a position that is contingent upon other things, running game, offensive line, the quarterback play, the other wide receivers. It's contingent on so many things.

So it's not the most valuable. Like, New England last year, without their best receiver, Gronkowski, they won the Super Bowl. You can say, well, he was– he is the number one wide receiver on the team. You can play great football without a wide receiver having dominant nu–

JENNA WOLFE: Well, with that argument, what other position, besides quarterback, would you say would be deserving of a– what other position could be deserving?

– Any defensive player that's going to have an amazing year, all right? You can't say position, defensively. You can say anyone. That's either interceptions, or sacks, or tackles. You break the NFL record in tackles. Offensively, it is an offensive world that's made for the quarterback. So the only way I'm going to win, either the quarterbacks or, maybe, a running back. That's it! But I'm fine with that. That– I'm OK with that.
