NFL MVP: Tom Brady or Mike Vick, Sorry 7 Minutes Does Not an MVP Make

 

The NFL pundits have nothing on the political ones, they big discussion is who should be NFL MVP, the Patriots Tom Brady or Philly’s Mike Vick? Some sports pundits and analysts say there should be co-MVP’s … spare us, these are the same folks that think ties are ok and probably are against dodge ball.

With all due respect to the supposed NFL sports of those in the know, there is not even a discussion as to who the MVP is … hands down the winner should be the New England Patriots QB Tom Brady. We are supposed to believe that because Vick has a compelling story of NFL QB, turned dog killer, turned convict, turned disgruntled Eagle QB, turned starting and effective Philly QB is something that Disney movies are made of. Sorry, but it is not, Lassie and Rin Tin Tin might take exception.

The sports MSM has made more of the Vick story than it really is. What a shock because to them, local dog fighting and killer done good is supposed to some how resonate with providing a second chance. Even a misguided and small minded President Obama has jumped on the Vick bandwagon. What a surprise for a president, lost in smallness. However, where was Barack Obama when the Eagles first signed Vick, he was no where to be found. However, what is more puzzling is how Obama felt the need to comment on a second chance provided to a multi-millionaire QB. Are we supposed to believe that Obama will be singing the praises of Bernie Madoff next, or other with criminal pasts for selling drugs, child exploitation, battery, rape or murder?

However, lets just go to the cold hard facts and the stats. Tom Brady finished the regular season by leading the New England Patriots to a 14-2 season, the best in the NFL anda #1 seed in the AFC, a first round bye and home field advantage through out the playoffs. Brady finished the season with 36 TD’s and only 4 interceptions and 3900 yards.  Brady extended his NFL records to 335 straight passes without an interception and 28 consecutive regular season wins as a starter at home. In the season finale Brady threw for 2 more TD’s and lead the PAT’s to a 38-7 win over the Fins even though their top three receivers, Wes Welker, Deion Branch andAaron Hernandez were inactive. After losing Randy Moss earlier in the year, the NE passing game became even more effective. Brady’s new found desire, leadership and inspired play this year is refreshing to see for an 11 year veteran who has won 3 Super Bowl rings.

Taking nothing away from Michael Vick, he has had a good year and one that many thought would never have happened seeing that the Philadelphia Eagles named Kevin Kolb the starting QB at the beginning of the year. However, given the chance Vick threw for 21 TD’s, 6 interceptions and 3018 yards.  Yes, Vick provides a running element to his game; however, that has also lead to 34 sacks and Vick being injured toward the end of the season.

For those who ask the question, who is the most important person to their team which is what MVP, most valuable player, is all about, once again the obvious answer is Tom Brady. There are some sports pundits that say that Vick is more important to the Eagles that that Philly would be a .500 team without him. Really? Far be it from the facts get in the way of a drool-fest with the ex-con. Newsflash to world, the Eagles beat both the SF 49ers (27-24) and the Atlanta Falcons (31-17) without Vick and with Kevin Kolb at QB. Yes, the same ATL Falcons who have the best record in the NFC and the #1 seed in the playoffs.  Can any one in their right mind and with a straight face say that the New England Patriots would have won 10 games, let alone won 8 if second string QB Brian Hoyer had to replace Brady? Enough said.

Now let’s compare the push to the playoff and how the two potential MVP candidates have played in guiding their teams down the stretch.

Everyone wants to talk about the 4th quarter some back by Vick against the Giants and the 2nd “Miracle of the Meadowlands”. However, 7 minutes of football does not a legend or MVP make. If you think I am wrong, ask then 22 year old Clint Longley. If you are too young to remember, it was 1974 Thanksgiving, Dallas vs. the Redskins in one of the greatest games,. come backs and one hit wonders ever as the Cowboys trailed 23-3 in the 2nd half and no Roger Staubach. But I digress, ok enough of the nostalgia. The point being that Philly or Vick did nothing in the Giant game or the following game in their embarrassing loss to Minnesota in the“Wussie” Bowl, except for those 7 minutes.

In the final 5 games of the season, seeing that Vick will not play in the final game against Dallas as he is banged up and there is no need, Mike Vick has hardly been a world beater. Vick is 3 wins and 2 losses, in the final five including the disastrous terrible game against the lowly Vikings. He threw for 10 TD’s and 6 interceptions and ran for another 4 TD’s.

Conversely, since the PAT’s loss the Cleveland, Tom Brady has gone on an eight game winning streak, playing lights out with wins against playoff teams like Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Green Bay, NY Jets and Chicago Bears. During that time he has thrown for 22 TD’s and zero, no, non, nada interceptions. Tom Brady has presently thrown for an NFL records to 335 straight passes without an interception. Brady has also won 28 consecutive regular season home wins as a starter. This type of play is unheard of an deserving of an MVP. How can any one say otherwise?

Has Mike Vick had a great season, yes. Is it any where in the ball park or on the level of Tom Brady to be MVP … NO, not even close.

      Awesome! Brady hands down!
      The only reason Vick isn’t still killing defenseless dogs is because he got caught. The only reason he speaks at high schools every Tuesday about animal rights, protection is because its part of his parole.

      When one looks at the facts, there is no real debate. I might even pick Peyton Manning 2nd for the job he did in having the Colts make the playoff with all of their injuries. And I despise Manning.

      This should have NEVER and in my eyes was NEVER a real debate.

      Just really delve into who Brady’s receivers are…and take Moss out those two years and Brady’s receiving corps is really not known to many people outside of New England.

      Brady is hands down the MVP and the best QB in this league RIGHT NOW..TODAY.

      If he gets another ring…he goes down as one of the top 3 QB’s EVER!

      Why is everyone stuck on Vick’s past? Everyone deserves a second chance. All have fallen short of the glory of God. God’s grace is the only reason it’s not you. What have you done that has not come to light? His past should not be included in his vie for MVP.What if God gave up on you?

    5. Scott on January 6th, 2011 8:20 am

      Monique….HAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA…you bible pumping moron.

      Vick is a thug and do you really believe he has a change of heart? LOL…anybody that would set up a dog fighting and killing ring has some pistols misfiring upstairs and those are not fixed by PRE-WRITTEN statements he had to make to get back into the NFL.

      Do you really think Vick’s play this season has been better than Brady? Look at the stats! It’s not close. You watch too much hype from ESPN and see highlights but you don’t actually pay attention to what is actually happening on the field.

      Go bible pump somewhere else.

      why does everyone care so much about the dogfighting aspect? animals are “used and abused” on varying levels every day in the U.S. (greyhound racing, circus acts, horse racing, puppy mills, slaughter houses, and even zoos) and no one seems too concerned…get over it and focus on more important things.

    8. Monique on January 11th, 2011 5:28 pm

      Bible pumping? Call it what you will.But you sir do not have the authority nor intelligence to judge anyone. Furthermore, I never said he should be MVP. I stated that his past shoud not be a difining factor for in determining the result. And yes, everyone deserves a second chance! What mistakes are you hiding that God’s grace has kept you from the deserved consequences? The population needs to care about people the way we care about animals!

    9. Monique on January 12th, 2011 11:09 am

      Bible pumping? Call it what you will, sir. It is completely obvious that you have not the authority nor the intelligence to judge anyone. There is not a person alive who is free from mistakes. Simply reflect on where you would be had you received rightful judgement for your actions. Furthermore, I never stated that he should receive the MVP award. I said his past should not be a determining factor in whether he should. And yes. Absolutely! Everyone deserves a second chance. I am more than positive you yourself has received multiple. If people cared as much about people as they do about animals, our country and this world would be a much better place!

      Tom Brady is an overated quarterback who has done nothing. Mike Vick took this team from a sorry year to an incredible one. Does Tom Brady have his jersey in the hall of fame like Mike Vick? No. Case Closed and plus let the dog fighting thing go. It’s getting old. Very.

    11. nixon on January 16th, 2011 11:02 pm

      you guys are such unrepentant idiots! karma is such a b***h. what you all wish on people gets back to you. Dog-fighting is equal to cheating on your wives n girlfriends, telling lies to those close to you, and only insecure morons make insensitive comments about about other people. Go to hell with your ideologies and resurrect when u know how to think right.
