Mike Sando's MVP Watch

Let's be real here.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Arizona Cardinals strong safety Adrian Wilson are not going to win MVP honors in the NFL this season.

Both appear on the MVP Watch list following Week 1 because they produced so exceptionally well for their teams. The Chicago Bears' Matt Forte and others deserved some consideration, too, but the list would have felt incomplete without including more legitimate longer-term candidates coming off less-spectacular opening weeks (Brett Favre among them).

Someone had to be left off the list, and Forte had company. Tony Romo dropped off the list from last week, but I think he'll be back, Alex Barron permitting.
