The ESPN First Take crew names their NFL MVP for the season and none of them can agree

FOUR games into the NFL season, it’s difficult to reach a consensus on which teams and which players are the real deal.

Look no further than ESPN First takes where on Wednesday all four hosts have had different picks for their NFL MVP so far.

Marcus Spears replaced Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes, who led his team to a 3-1 start as part of the fourth-highest offense in the league, also ranks first in passing touchdowns in Week 4 with 11.

Spears explained, “If you look at the league as a whole and look at Patrick Mahomes’ dynamic playmaking ability and then put 41 points on defense, which we all thought was the best defense in the NFL.

“And I know Andy Reid is involved, the running game was dominant in it…”

The game in question was their 41-31 win in Week 4 over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

However, Stephen A. Smith argued that the Chiefs’ loss to the Indianapolis Colts and their relatively easy start to the season as a whole needed to be taken into account – which is why he went in a different direction.

Smith stayed at quarterback again, choosing Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills, one of this season’s Super Bowl favorites, also went 3-1, losing only in Week 3 to the then-undefeated Miami Dolphins.

Focusing on the level of his competitors, Smith argued, “When I look at Josh Allen, I think about what you did to the reigning Super Bowl champion Rams on opening night.”

He went on to describe Allen as “that guy right now,” which seems appropriate considering Allen is currently in second place with 1,227 yards.

But again, it was another quarterback that caught the eye of co-host Chris Russo, throwing the only undefeated starting quarterback in the ring on behalf of the NFL.

While Russo admitted he doesn’t love Philadelphia Eagles signal caller Jalen Hurts and said he needs to see more, he said he would run with Hurts given his 4-0 record.

But then Kimberley A. Martin surprisingly rounded out her far from unanimous MVP pick with a quarterback.

Martin told her co-hosts that she respects them all: “You guys are all fake. The answer is Lamar Jackson and here’s why:

“Lamar Jackson was the AFC Player of the Month and in literally one weekend he’s suddenly not the MVP anymore?”

“I was there in Indy watching the Chiefs lose to the Colts and you’re like, ‘Oh, that was just a bad game.’ To me, when I look at Lamar, he does more with less.”

Jackson also has 11 passing touchdowns and is on his way to a career year in passing yards and touchdowns along with Allen and Hurts.

Fan reactions to this selection varied, with one noting that Smith “always hated Pat.”

Another said: “Lamar and Jalen. Josh could be MVP, but he’s not right now. Pat is too inconsistent.”

While another commented, “Those takes are wild…yeah he was 41 but under 250 yards passing and the week before he couldn’t beat the Colts [shrugging emoji]”

Perhaps Week 5 can shed some light on the argument when Mahomes faces the Las Vegas Raiders, Allen the Pittsburgh Steelers, Hurts the Arizona Cardinals and Jackson the Cincinnati Bengals.
