Darius Leonard endorses Jonathan Taylor MVP talk with perfect tweet
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard is leading the ‘Jonathan Taylor for MVP’ campaign.
Prior to the Week 11 Indianapolis Colts vs. Buffalo Bills game, Colts fans were discussing how elite running back Jonathan Taylor is and how he isn’t necessarily getting the national love he deserves.
Heading into Week 12, it’s an entirely different story.
Taylor is now getting plenty of love and recognition, and it’s because of what he did in that Week 11 game. Taylor had 35 touches for 204 yards and five total touchdowns. The performance elevated his status from an underrated leading rusher to an MVP candidate.
Now, everywhere you turn someone is singing the praises of Jonathan Taylor. He’s catapulted his way into the MVP discussion, and many think he may be the leader for the award right now. Although Taylor is now the subject of a national conversation, his most vocal support remains in the locker room.
The biggest endorsers for Taylor’s MVP campaign have been his teammates. Following Sunday’s victory, team captain Darius Leonard summed it all up in a perfect tweet.
Colts LB Darius Leonard leads the Jonathan Taylor MVP campaign
Leonard, the vocal leader of Indianapolis, says Taylor is firmly in the MVP race and it’s not debatable. Like the many times he finds himself properly positioned on the field, Leonard is right.
Taylor has been one of the most consistently dominant players in the NFL and he is the fuel of the Colts offense. The offense goes as he goes, and so does the entire team. At 6-5 with all eyes on Indianapolis, Taylor is in the perfect position to run the Colts into the playoffs and himself to an MVP award.
It will be a challenge, as the Colts have a tough remaining schedule and non-quarterbacks rarely win the award, but Taylor just dominated the top defense in the league. And which quarterbacks do you think are in the MVP lead, exactly? Taylor’s obviously equipped to face challenges. This one is no different.
