Brady also was tops with a 68.9 completion percentage, and his 4,806 yards were 383 more than runner-up Drew Brees of New Orleans.
Brees rebounded to have an outstanding season. The Saints are about as set as it gets at QB.

BTW: Brady received 49 of 50 votes. Being a runner-up is still quite an honor. heh

Brady is great and he looks even better when you see him play in person.
People used to be critical of his production when he had no real receiving threats. Now many say his production is because of his receivers. IMO you can't have it both ways. He simply does not wilt under pressure, he seems to thrive on it. Winning a SB this year will seal the deal. And this year may not be the last. Who knows how many he can win in NE before he's done. It helps that great players want to play there and let's face it Tom Brady is as big a factor in that desire as Belichick. IMO anyway.
MVP: well deserved.

I agree with most of what you say.....but

1. He has ALWAYS had one of the best defenses to rely on
2. He has had Superbowl MVP receivers on his team
3. He has had some of the best protection in the NFL....period
4. He had a great running game to rely on
5. He had great special teams with the return game and Mr. Clutch kicking

Not taking anything away from him but it is DEFINATELY a team sport. He is definately a one of the best but some of that has to do with the coaches and front office consistently giving him one of the best complete teams in NFL history.

So which QBs do you feel are better than Brady? QBs don't rely on their Ds.Their job is to score. See the stats of Brees. Brady often scores before the Pats D has even taken the field. Branch was the SB MVP, yet the Pats let him seek his fortune in Seattle. Patten and Troy Brown haven't been mentioned among the greats, either. What does special teams have to do with anything? I have also pointed out that the top ten QBs usually have good rushing attacks and OL. Each compliments the other. Maroney would be in trouble without Brady. The Pats pass to set up the run.

I know he has one of the best offensive lines in the NFL but watch him when he is pressured. The guy stands in the pocket until the last second before throwing the ball. He has ice in his veins. Nothing can rattle this guy. That is what makes a great QB. Montana was the same. Brady is as good if not better. Brady didn't always have the best receivers either. He does have a great defense but put David Carr on that team and they go no where. Brady already has a bust in Canton.

I for one am honoured to have seen the Pats this past season.
It doesn't seem like it now (as it never does when history is made), but the Pats regular season play was probably the best ever, and Brady's performance on of the all time great performances.

It's like Drew, at the minute our offense is amazing, but take out Drew and it is mediocre, Brady is the same. You can say its the recievers, the running game, the special teams or the defense, the common denominator is that Brady always plays well when the Pats play well.

The Pats as a whole scored 75 five touchdowns this past season. Yes 75, 15 rushing, 50 passing, 2 kick returns, 3 pick sixes and 3 fumble returns. It was absolutely unbelievable, and I will savour the fact that although the Saints did badly, in only my second season of following the sport I have seen the greatest team ever play. They scored at will. Forgive me if I am wrong Pats fans, but from my count 21 different Patriots players scored TDs. So calling them one dimensional will not vie with me either.

Well done Pats, but I still think the Colts beat you again in an AFCCG thriller.
