The NFL Most Valuable player race has turned into a two horse race. Many experts have New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the club house with a slight lead over the electrifying Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. There are a few that are even screaming the name Philip Rivers. (We won't include him but I am sure he will get some consideration)
It is easy to manufacture a respectable argument in favor of either player. I think it is important to consider more than statistics. It is vital to weigh other factors such as adversity and expectations in addition to their team's overall performance.
The Case For Brady
The Patriots have an 11-2 record. They will likely be the No. 1 seed in the A.F.C. ensuring home-field throughout the playoffs. Brady’s statistics are simply Brady-like. Thus far he has passed for 3561 yards, 31 touchdowns against four interceptions. He has a passer rating of 109.9. Based on Brady’s statistics it would be easy to suggest he is the best player in football.
