You will always hear players say that football isn't about the individual accolades. It's a team sport, after all, meaning team accomplishments and winning are more important than personal stats or trophies. That's true unless it's the Lombardi Trophy, of course, because that's what every team is trying to win by reaching the Super Bowl.
Those are great talking points for star players who are trying to maintain team unity, but the reality is no player will turn down an award, particularly the Most Valuable Player Award. It's an honor to earn the MVP. It means a player did their job, not only to the best of their ability, but better than the other players across the league. There's a level of competition built into the award, and often a player's individual success is a result of team success. Not to mention, most players who earn the award end up in the playoffs with their respective teams at the end of the year.
