They're not exactly a QB's dream. *Cough NE*
I love how people make random arugments up.. New England? A QBs dream? Brady has had revolving door at the WR position his entire career, Welker being the only exception. Welker is a small target, but it is Brady's quickness and accuracy that elevate Welker's game to the point that its at... He wasn't putting up those kinds of years in Miami or San Diego, then he goes to the Patriots and is the most productive receiver every single year...
The Patriots have gone through a slew of offensive coordinators and have completely changed their philosophy year to year, and it never phases Brady, he adapts and runs the offense to perfection. He is leading the second highest scoring offense in NFL history this year, with only 4 interceptions on the entire season and just dominated the top AFC team that most people have favored to go the Super Bowl... and then you come to the Colts forum and its "Hes having an alright year, Brady is alright.. Its more that the Patriots are just good" and completely ignore that Brady has literally carried this team on his shoulders for years and years. The young defensive is finally starting to show signs of gelling and improving so that is going to help.. The offensive line has been RAVAGED with injuries this year, they have had to sub people in and out all year long, yet everyone is like "ohh the Patriots oline is so good, any QB could sit back there for 10 seconds and complete a pass" but that is not the case.. maybe on a few plays a game the oline buys him incredible amounts of time, but that can be said about ANY qb in the league.
Brady is like having an O coordinator out on the field, he knows everything there is to know about his offense and constantly puts them all in a position to succeed. He gets the ball out insanely fast and can pick apart a defense, even an elite one, and make it look average.
His numbers are better than Manning, his turnovers are WAYYYY less than Manning, and he has BEAT Manning heads up this year.. In fact, the Broncos have lost to every good team they have played all year.. So Manning has just been beating up on weak teams in his weak division and losing to talented teams.. Reminds me of the 2008 Patriots actually..
Coming back from an injury is irrelevant in the MVP discussion, that is what the comeback player of the year is for.. Brady is the clear MVP out of all of the QBs right now, he is clearly playing the highest level of football and anyone outside of people who just seem to hate him and the Patriots, would agree. Its funny, every single year there are people on this board that modify the criteria for what it means to be the MVP that year, depending on what kind of year Manning has. Every year, they always use criteria that matches or favors Manning ha..
"He came back from Neck surgery!" = Irrelevant in MVP discussions.
"He has the Broncos in the playoffs!!" = So did Tim Tebow last year, one of the WORST Qbs in the entire league that is literally backing up Mark Sanchez was able to take the Broncos to the 2nd round of the playoffs last year... So if Manning couldn't do that, then he would be a FAILURE!
"He has no talent around him!" = *... He has D. Thomas, a 1st round talent and a big, legitimate deep threat. He has Eric Decker, a big and physical possession receiver.. He has a very talented Oline... In fact, the Broncos lead the league in rushing last year, so that shows right there that the Oline and their run game were outstanding...
Did anyone even watch the end of the Texans game? Mallet came in to replace Brady, and 5 plays into their drive he throws an interception... Brady is playing at an incredible level this year... He is leading the 2nd highest scoring offense IN THE HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE! He has been without a major piece of his offense all year long, he has had injuries all year long across the Oline.. and hes had to compensate for a horrendous defense that is just finally showing signs of improvement after they traded for Talib and moved McCourty over to FS.
Manning is having a great year, but Brady is having an amazing year. And if the Bronco's didnt think Manning could come back from his neck surgery at an elite level, they would have never gave him a contract worth $20 million a year... Continuing to refer to his neck injury in MVP discussions is just trying to add dramatization and "disneyesque" feelings to it all.
