Patriots' Tom Brady Named NFL MVP

Patriots' Tom Brady Named NFL MVP

There are 58 comments on the CBS 5 story from Jan 5, 2008, titled Patriots' Tom Brady Named NFL MVP. In it, CBS 5 reports that:

“He gives maximum effort on every play and every game. What he did was outstanding, but I know he wants more than that. That's what you need in your quarterback.”

Add Most Valuable Player to all the other accolades Tom Brady has been collecting.

The New England Patriots' record-setting quarterback drew all but one vote Saturday in romping to The Associated Press 2007 NFL MVP award in the same manner his team romped through its schedule, going 16-0. On the way to the first unbeaten regular season since Miami went 14-0 in 1972, Brady put on a performance for the ages.

The eight-year veteran who already has won three Super Bowls helped the Patriots tear through the record books by throwing for 50 touchdowns. He beat Peyton Manning's league mark by one, and also threw 23 of those TD passes to Randy Moss, which lifted the receiver past Jerry Rice's record of 22. Read more

Not only do the New England Patriots suck, the NFL itself now follows a close second IMHO.
Both awards are based on accomplishment, not popularity.
Which is why they won.

Another case of the pot calling the kettle black. Of your two comments on the post, both of them were bashing someone. At least Marcia had a witty poem.

And there is no game itself. Its Jags vs NE and Colts vs SD. Colts vs Indy hasn't even came to fruition yet, and I wouldn't be surprised if either or both Colts and NE lost.

The fact is. In the past 4 years, the rivalry has been even money for the most part. Its always a good game regardless who wins. Lets give up the talk of who is better because it will never be agreed upon by either side. Can't we all just enjoy some damn good football.

Did the NFL not just recently fine the New England Patriots and Belicheat better than a half-million dollars for CHEATING? Now they put them on a pedestal and call them heros in the same year? C'mon!! Have another 12 pack... What a great role model for my son, yep... teach him that it's just fine to cheat or do anything to win, in fact let's reward him for it! What a bunch of BS. Hype mongering for money and ratings is not what football or any sport should be about and I am simply appalled that the NFL would be as shallow as that to not realize the significance of their recent actions. The New England Patriots, no matter what they've done on the record books this year, thanks to themselves and the NFL, will always be seen by many for what they really are, and I certainly do not want my kids to look towards them as role models in any way... and it irritates me to no end to now be put into a position where I as a parent have to be the one to take that away from them for their own protection. The NFL should've understood the depth and significance of this issue when they chose to take action and inflict those serious fines upon the Patrtiots. You simply cannot have a team that is fined up the ying-yang for breaking the rules and commiting serious underhanded offenses one minute, suddenly have their head coach and quaterback put onto "hero " status in the same year. Again, what the hell are they thinking???

not for money or ratings? i'm thinking you might be retarded or something. money and ratings is the only thing nfl or any professional league is about. its entertainment dumbshit!!!

OChowdaheaded1-- I never stated that the NFL voted on anything, just said they announced it. And if it wasn't a major infraction, you can bet your right one that Roger Goodell would NOT have implemented the maximus-slammibus fine on either of them.
Oh yeah, also noticed that Wilfork got fined too for deliberately jabbing someone in the eye during an argument. Gee, why doesn't that surprise me.....The NFL should step up here and pull the plug on these numbnuts, cause money and ratings ain't everything.
if you want to scream about two whole incidents this year why arent you ranting and raving about the baltimore ravens? they commit more personal fouls than you can shake a stick at. they get in the face of refs and try to fight them, they throw stuff and commit all types of dirty hits. why is it ok for every other team to do something wrong but not the pats?
you are right you didnt say the nfl voted but you said they allowed it. they dont govern the vote, this isnt some communist nation. votes are what they are and the league cant change that. the fact that the votes were so lopsided proves that the majority of people in this country do not think the pats got to their current position by cheating. its simple common sense. maybe the game and life has passed you by old timer.
maybe you missed this one too, roger goodell has been implementing the maximum penalty on EVERY infraction since he came into the league. he is setting an example. i can sit here for a half an hour and cite examples of goodell throwing the book at people in the nfl. its not just the pats, despite what you think. he is making it clear that the first time you break a rule is the maximum punishment period. this way it sets an example to any other player or team to not break a rule if they were thinking of doing the same.

Best examples of this was how he handled Pacman Jones, Tank Johnson and what seems to be half of the Bengals team. Imagine if he was around when Ray Lewis was on trial for murder? He would not have allowed him to play for a while either, instead the old NFL allowed him back as soon as he got off even though he was guilty as sin.

<quoted text>easy schedule? do any of you morons bother to look anything up before you post? the pats OTHER 10 GAMES out of their easy division contained 6 of this years 12 playoff teams. the colts played 4 of this years playoff teams. but you are correct, the pats had an easy schedule. if you want to talk about easy lets talk about the colts schedule. your only argument is that your team is in the best division in the afc. i will give you that but lets talk about the other 10 games. the colts only wins against playoff teams this year are against the wildcard teams. they lost to the #1 and 4 seed teams. so your team beat the lowest seed but couldnt beat the teams that will give the colts the most trouble in the playoffs.
the colts also have played 11 games in domes this year(no wind, snow, temp issues, bad footing, sun in the eyes, etc.), 5 games in very warm climate(notice how their tough division games against this years playoff teams were played late in the year inside) and one game in baltimore that was chilly but no wind or snow. THATS an easy schedule any way you slice it. by the way the pats EASY schedule had them on the road against the #2 seed in the afc this year(win), the #1 seed in the nfc on the road(win), home against the #3 and 4 seed in the afc(wins), the #5 seed in the nfc on the road(win) and home against the #6 seed in the nfc(win). not really sure how the pats being 6-0 this year against playoff teams makes them have an easy schedule but im sure you did as much research as i did before you posted.
Colts will demolish Patsyriots especially after the upstart Jaguars beat them up because the BUCK STOPS NOW "Patsyriot fan" No body likes your team by the way, or Brady either.

Nobody on this forum likes the Pats, but obviously the majority of fans do, or at least respect them for what they have done this year and over this decade. Why else did the team and players get honored by so many media outlets and polls at the end of the season?

Don't forget, the Patriots have been great for football because they make your teams better. They force teams' front offices to be smarter, coaches to coach smarter, players to play better in order to try to beat them. That is one of the many reasons you should respect them (but I could care less if you like them).

How the hell can you call the Jags "hapless"? They played a great game. New Englang got two 15 yard penalties for Harrisons and Neals mistakes. There wasn't even a flag when Welker almost got his head ripped off.

its so pathetic that these morons have to blow everything out of proportion to force their point. they just dont get the point of the amount of emotion involved in a game like that so when the pats do make a mistake they just call it classless. the jags had some personal fouls too, but its ok for other teams to commit them but not the pats, thats just classless.
