No shock whatsoever here, as Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the League’s Most Valuable Players earlier Saturday by the Associated Press. Brady took home 49 of the 50 first place votes (what idiot DIDN’T vote for Brady?!). Of course some Packers fan gave the one other vote to Brett Favre. Come on, let’s be real, how could Brady have NOT taken home this award. He had a regular season that will go down as historic, and will be remembered for years.
Brady won AFC Offensive Player of the Week 5 times this season. “I have always been a huge football fan and will always have great respect for the history of this game,” Brady said. “I am flattered to join such an esteemed list of players, many of whom I consider the greatest of all time. I hope that I can set as great of an example for kids around the world as the previous MVPs did for me.”
He threw for 50 touchdowns this season, breaking the mark set a few years back by Peyton Manning. The Pats scored an NFL record 589 points, and trust me, that could not have been done without the remarkable play of Brady. He led the NFL with a passer rating of 117.2 and 4,806 yards. “As I have learned over the course of my time with the Patriots, the most meaningful accomplishments are always the ones I have celebrated with my teammates,” he said. “I am certainly proud of the success that we have enjoyed so far this season.”
