Barring the unexpected, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will most likely win his second MVP award in four seasons this January. His only competition was Phildelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, who probably lost any chance at the award with a 24-14 home loss to a Minnesota Vikings team that was 5-9 coming into that game.
As with any player's MVP season, Brady is having one of the best seasons of his NFL career. In 15 starts, he has 314 completions in 476 pass attempts for 3,701 yards, 34 touchdown passes, four interceptions and a QB rating of 109.8.
This weekend, he broke longtime Cleveland Browns QB Bernie Kozar's
NFL record for consecutive passes without an interception (308). Brady
has an active steak of 319 consecutive passes without an interception
headed into Week 17.
The debate that Brady is creating with this special season is whether Brady is playing better than his 2007 MVP season when the Patriots became the first team in NFL history to finish the regular season 16-0 and lost 17-14 in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants. I will emphatically state that while Brady is having a MVP season in 2010, it is not even close. His 2010 season does not compare to the one he put up in 2007.
Let's start with the individual numbers.
