Brady the Best in the Game? His Peers Think So


To the shock of just about no one, Patriots QB Tom Brady was voted as the best player of 2011 by his peers in an on-going series on NFL Network which wrapped up Sunday night.

The 33-year-old QB led the Pats last season to a 14-2 record, but the team fell short of reaching the Super Bowl after being upset by the Jets in the divisional round.

Brady led a number of high profile QB’s in the series, with Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Mike Vick, Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger all finishing behind the GQ quarterback.

Last season the Pro Bowler threw for 3900 yards, 36 touchdowns and an amazing four picks in all 16 regular season games. He’s a three-time Super Bowl winning QB, and according to his peers – he’s the best in the game.

    What peers? There is a bit of discussion taking place right now on Twitter. Quite a few NFL players are tweeting that not only did they never vote, they don’t know any players who supposedly did!

    I wonder if they just invited players they figured would be on the top 100 and gave them a piece of paper and pen.

    There was a preview show that possibly had statistics on who voted.

    According to the NFL Network, more than 400 current NFL players were polled for the top 100 list.
