Carson Palmer Should Be In MVP Race

When you think of this of the 2015 MVP race, many people name Tom Brady and Cam Newton, but one guy in the NFC is getting unfairly put on the backburner: Carson Palmer.
If you take a look at their record and his numbers, it's hard to leave the talented quarterback off the MVP list.
When asked about Carson Palmer, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said "Honestly, watching tape, I hear about all these people talking about MVPs, and he really should be in the consideration with the way he's playing," said Zimmer. "And that's not media talk, either. That's true. That's what I believe."
Palmer, who's led the Cardinals to a 10-2 record, is on pace for the best season of his career. He has thrown for 3,693 yards and 29 touchdowns -- one away from tying the franchise record for most touchdown passes in a season -- with four games left. He leads the league in QBR and is second in quarterback rating and touchdowns thrown.

Are we making a mistake on Carson Palmer? Is he the best player in the NFL right now?

I'll take Palmer and the Cards offense any day over Cam Newton. Palmer deserves to at least be in the discussion.
I'm sorry but this season's MVP is going to go to Cam Newton!
I'm not a fan of Carson Palmer
I want Cam Newton the win it but you got to give that man his respect he killin it

NFL Dads Tackle Hair Styling In This Pantene Campaign.
Every year, major sponsors shell out some serious cash to grab our attention during the Super Bowl, by far the largest single sporting event of the year. They enlist A-List celebrities, bust out the CGI, and have the ability to transform a typical 30-second spot into a minute long movie of epic proportions. However, if there's one thing that these companies can learn from haircare brand Pantene this year, it's that turning on America's feels doesn't have to be that complicated - just bring in the adorableness of some NFL kids! Pantene's 'Dad-Do' Super Bowl campaign features a number of popular NFL fathers taking a stab at styling their daughters' hair with Pantene products. Like you could probably guess, they definitely struggle through it, but with some adorable encouragement from their daughters, the results are very much 'aww'-worthy. (My personal favorite is pictured above: DeAngelo Williams of the Pittsburgh Steelers versus his daughter Rhiya's braids and bows.) Benjamin Watson, tight end for the New Orleans Saints, displayed some pigtail game earning an impressed high five from his daughter, Grace. (He tried to argue that bigger hands make it hard for athletes to style hair, but he didn't do too bad for a first-timer!) The Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten's adorable daughter Landry was SUPPOSED to get a braided ballerina bun, but let's just say there were some complications on the way. (Hey, if there's anything the Cowboys learned this season, it's that you can't win 'em all!) Click the video above for a look at the finished 30-second Super Bowl ad, or visit Pantene's official YouTube Channel to watch the full styling videos from each athlete. So how do you think they did? Was this concept just as adorable to you as it was to me? Let me know in the comments below and for more trending videos from across the web, follow my YouTube Nation collection!
