If this years sports writers fail to vote for Brady for MVP they will have bypassed one of the greatest performances by any quarterback in the history of the league. Yes I know Peyton broke some records. But with the protection and receivers he had, any one of the better QBs would have. But not a single QB now or in history would have been able to do with the Pats what Brady did this year. Making chicken salad out of chicken sh!t is an understatement of great magnitude. You don't really understand just how great a season Brady put in until you really think about Brady pulling games out at the end, and his beating both Drew Brees and Peyon Manning on the field. Especially after Peyton had a 24 point lead in the third quarter. Think about that. How good does Brady have to be to come back from a 24 point deficit to Manning and with the less then adaquate receivers he has had all year. Meanwhile Peyton not only had a 24 point lead but better protection and better receivers for those last two quarters and couldn't keep up with Brady. That says it all. Any sports writer who doesn't reward Brady for such an outstanding performance relative to the strength of competition is blind or worse, bought off. And that's really the key when voting for any MVP. Strength of competition. It has been reported, not be the crony press, but by fans across the nation that Peyton played against only four winning teams all season and lost to three of them. That means his gaudy numbers came at the hands of losing teams. He will also have to play winning teams in the playoffs but so far has proven he can't beat them. Turn the page and find Brady beating many teams he was not expected to, including powerhouses New Orleans and Denver. Even his losses came at the hands of referees questionable throwing flags (Jets) or picking them up (Carolina). Then there is the problem of dropped balls (Amendola lost the Miami game with a dropped TD as did that TE ). Brady has done what no other QB in history could do and deserves to be rewarded for it. Manning has already been rewarded with a record for passing yards he didn't really attain. Let's not keep giving him accolades he has not earned on the field. Manning has a far superior team to Brady yet Brady outperforms. That's the true meaning of what MVP represents. Let's do the right thing in the NFL for a change. Manning for Offensive Player of the Year, but when it comes to Most Valuable Player, let's give it to the guy who is truly Most Valuable, Brady has proved it in competition and head to head against Brees and Manning. Do the right thing for once.

You are so right. Peyton is best at choking and throwing INTs. Nothing to be proud about. Where are the rings?
Peyton has had more support than any QB in history minus Montana yet he has squandered his opportunities. With all that support he should have a greater lead over the QB pack in raw numbers than he does. If he truly was the best, he would have, not only a bigger lead but less INTs and more rings. Come to think of it, Brady has less INTs and more rings. Guess what that means.

Meanwhile Peyton still hasn't hit the .500 mark for his career. Your argument makes my point. You take Brady's worst and it still is better than Peyton's best. Brady always gets more out of his team then they got, meanwhile, Peyton gets less. If it wasn't for Peyton's dad, he wouldn't have the support of the press he does.
Consider that Manning has played three years longer than Brady and has been in four less games. Manning 9-11 to Brady's 17-7. Hmmm, not hard to see who makes their team better. Brady has more victories in postseason than any QB in NFL History, can't expect Manning to compete with the best, at least not on the field, it's in the sportswriters back room where Manning excels, in large part due to his dads contacts. Nice to have a generational head start to facilitate your press support. And like your predecessor commented, Brady has Gisele and takes in twice what Manning does while Peyton has pizza. Think I'd rather be Brady. But from your viewpoint, I know, it's hard to top pizza.

You are absolutely correct, he set A record for TDs in a year. The other record, for passing yards in a season, was GIVEN to him by the NFL. After the NFL acknowledged that 7 of Peyton's yards were a lateral and not eligible for passing yards, they decided to disregard the rules and fairness, and decreed by edict that Peyton's passing yards record would stand. If that's not pull that Peyton has via his dads contacts, then I don't know what is. Imagine, the NFL acknowledges that Peyton's record is not a record but then they give it to him anyway. That's like four of his TDs this year that were either bounced to the receiver or juggled through the end zone yet still "awarded" as TDs. What a racket he has going. Peyton is proof positive that the NFL is fixed, at least for him.
If you want further proof just check out the years Peyton was "awarded" MVPs. Notice i said awarded and not earned. When others had better stats, the sports writers focused on his teams success. When his team had less success than others, writers focused on his leadership in getting his team to the playoffs. Nice to have the guys who decide on the MVP already in your pocket before the year is played out. Even the year Peyton was out with injury there was talk by sports writers that Peyton should win the MVP because his backup was so bad. Proof positive the writers lack integrity and are sold out for Peyton. Not until this generation of writers are dead or replaced with honest men and women will the NFL and its award system be on a fair playing field. It's true what they say, our children are the future. The present has been sold out.

Just wanted to bring you an anomaly. Look at all the great teams in history. What did they all have in common? Great wide receivers. Starr, Staubach, Montana, Bradshaw, Aikman, Roethlisberger, even Eli had them. But in this day an age a weird thing has happened. Brady has won three SBs without great receivers while Peyton can't win even though he is the one with the great receivers, and some of the best ever. He also played in a temperature controlled, windless stadium with the Colts and now in a stadium at altitude to give him unfair advantages and magnify his stats. Stats the writers focus on apart from everything else. That says a lot about a QB. But the sports writers continue to cover it up and tell us Manning is a great QB worthy of MVPs when in fact all these trophies are not earned on the field but awarded by his dad's contacts. Time the NFL stops calling it competition and calling it what it is, predetermined entertainment. Otherwise Peyton would not be receiving the awards due others.

Brady only had Randy for one year and was still growing together. Peyton had Harrison and Wayne for over a decade and continually lost the first playoff game every season. Brady made it all the way to the SB in only his first year with Moss. Had Brady not gotten hurt and Moss hung around, things would have only gotten better. Belichick's ego and Moss's ego made that impossible. Take an average of Brady with Moss vs Peyton with two HoFers on the same team, i.e. Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne. Brady does over 50% better when given a HoFer of his own.
And losing in the SB means you are better than 30 other teams. Losing in the first round, as Manning has a habit of doing only makes him better than 20 other teams. Quite a big difference. Then Manning gets better draft picks each year for over a decade and still ends up 5 to 10 slots behind Brady. Think about it.

That's a lot better than Manning has been. Since 2006 Manning is 2-5, that's below 30%. So let me understand your reasoning. Manning wins at a 28.6% clip and you dump on Brady for only being almost twice as good. Sound thinking, love to see how you interact with the IRS come Tax time, or are you already in prison?

A true sports tactician looks for mismatches he can exploit to victory. That's what Tom Brady did last night as the Pats drowned the Colts. Chosing to bypass the passing game except when needed, Brady called Blount's number time after time and ran the Pats to double up the score on the Colts 43-22. Would have been 43-20 but a snap mishap gave the Colts an extra two points.
Even without quality receivers to throw to Brady picked up a couple hundred yards passing to augment the mismatches he found in the run game. Mismatches that proved to be more than the Colts could handle. Sacrificing his stats for the win is what makes Brady the exception in this day and age. Commentators multiple times commented on Brady's tenacity saying straight out that no one is more crazed about winning, its in his DNA, saying he would bite off his own leg to win. Hopefully not true, but we get the point. They finally acknowledged that Brady's performance this year was as good as any QBs ever and was worthy of the MVP given his lack of offensive support. That's what we have been saying for some time now. Glad the media is finally catching on.

I could be wrong but it seems to me that Peyton's teams give in to his way of thinking which is, his center the team around me mentality. If anything happens to Manning they are like the Russian Military and stand still with no hope of winning. Meanwhile the Pats use Moose and Squirrel tactics, meaning they focus on every player so when one goes down, Brady included, someone else is there so they can still continue on.
Manning may have a far better offense and though playing at home something tells me that Manning will be his self cerebral while Brady will be his usual team cerebral and come away with the improbable win on a Peyton late INT.
On paper Pats should not even be in the playoffs let alone the AFC Championship game. Seems to me Brady should be the MVP and Belichick Coach of the Year.

That's what I think too. How he ever got to the playoffs is amazing. How he got to the AFC Championship game with that team is unbelievable. Reason why he is the MVP whether the writers give it to him or not.
