It was just announced on NFL Network that Patriots QB Tom Brady has been named AP Offensive Player of the Year. Brady gained 21 votes while Eagles QB Michael Vick was the next highest vote-getter with 11 votes. Brady had a career year, one that may have surpassed what he accomplished in 2007. During the regular season, Brady threw for 3,900 yards, 36 touchdowns, and only 4 interceptions. He set new records for consecutive passes without an INT (335) and most consecutive home wins (28). He had a passer rating of 111.0, which is the second-best of his career. Brady threw 4 touchdown passes in back-to-back games, in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions and in Week 13 against the New York Jets.

I don’t expect this to be the last time Brady’s name this week. He is the clear favorite to win the MVP award, which will be announced on Super Bowl Sunday. Just in case you missed it, it was announced yesterday that Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was named the AP Defensive Player of the Year. Tomorrow, Coach of the Year will be announced.
