Who deserved to be Super Bowl MVP?

Poll Sponsor: 

Super Bowl Sunday might have been a little tough on those in the Houston area.

First, they didn't get to watch their Texans. Their team fizzled out toward the end of the regular season and lost in the Divisional Round for the second straight year.

Then, they had to watch a former Texan have a game that was worthy of Super Bowl MVP status. Oh yeah, did we mention it's the same guy who plenty of fans still blame for losing in the playoffs last season.

Jones fumbled a key punt return last season against the Ravens (the same team he joined) and the Texans were knocked out of the playoffs.

Jones was released during the offseason before he made $3 million in the second year of his three-year deal.

So the Texans moved on. They drafted Keshawn Martin (who took over return duties) and DeVier Posey, who came on late in the 2012 season. And Jones moved on too. He'll be getting a Super Bowl ring and plenty of folks think he should have gotten the MVP trophy.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco won the MVP after the Ravens' 34-31 win but it could have gone to Jones. Jones had a Super Bowl-reord 290 compined yards. He had one catch for 56 yards but where he really shined was in the return game.

Jones had 234 return yards and the longest play in Super Bowl history -- a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
