Tom Brady wins Offensive Player of the Year award

Tom Brady was named the AP Offensive Player of the Year on Wednesday, and the voting wasn't close enough to warrant a false-hope run on Twitter for any of the other candidates.

Brady picked up 21 votes, 10 more than runner-up Michael Vick. Of the remaining 18 votes, Arian Foster received seven, Philip Rivers received five, and Roddy White, Aaron Rodgers and DeSean Jackson all received two apiece.

That Brady won the award is hardly a surprise, and it won't likely be his only postseason hardware, either - the MVP award, to be announced Sunday of the Super Bowl, is probably his as well.

The argument against Brady is pretty nonexistent -- early in the season he failed to post eye-popping statistics, but as soon as people questioned whether or not the departure of Randy Moss was affecting him, the Pats quarterback started lighting defenses up.

And using his five-touchdown performance against the Steelers as a springboard, Brady finished with 36 touchdowns to only four interceptions, an absolutely ridiculous ratio by any standards.

It probably didn't hurt, either, that the Patriots cruised to the top seed in the AFC while Vick missed multiple games and Rivers struggled down the stretch.

Tom Brady wins Offensive Player of the Year award

Dude...give it a rest. BOTH are excellent QBs for starters, and both are champions.  That said, Brady already has three rings!  Who else has that many at this point?  Big Ben might after this weekend...but not yet.  (Oh yeah, and this was Offensive Player of the Year...not MVP).

And Brady is still an excellent player.  He may well win another when it's all said and done.  Unfortunately for him he plays in the powerhouse AFC.

Congrats Tom on another Offensive Player of the Year award...may the MVP follow.
