Tom Brady named Offensive Player of the Year

Heading into this NFL regular-season, the New England Patriots were sure we’ll kind of hopeful team they would have as their offense was filled with aging veterans and the defense would young unproven players. This obviously showed signs of possibly the beginning of a rebuilding process for head coach Bill Belichick’s squad and after the first few games of the season, that seem to be the case as the patriots looked like they wouldn’t be able to compete with the best of the best in the NFL any longer.

Fortunately for Tom Brady and company, they were able to turn things around very quickly and become arguably the best teams only once again. Not only was the young defense start a step up their game, but the offense was looking eerily similar to the one back in 2007 where the New England Patriots almost pulled off the perfect season.

Along with players like Danny Woodhead and Wes Welker stepping up their game, Tom Brady was having a career season as he looked near unstoppable in the pocket.

Ironically enough, Brady was having this kind of season in the same year that arguably the best receiver use ever played with was traded away. After the New England Patriots traded future Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss to his former team in the Minnesota Vikings, the offense was thought to be the one thing that would be suffering most as their downfield threat was officially gone.

Fortunately, the New England Patriots made a trade shortly after that to reacquire wide receiver Deion Branch from the Seattle Seahawks. Ever since Branch left Foxboro a few years ago, he wasn’t able to get back to form as one always best receivers, but immediately seemed to fall right back into place once he rejoined the Patriots.

Not only was this a giant boost for the Patriots’ offense, but Tom Brady was given one more weapon that seem to be the final piece to the puzzle for New England team that was looking to go deep in the playoffs.

Unfortunately, despite only losing two games throughout the regular season, the New England Patriots fell to the arch rival New York Jets in their first playoff game. This was a surprise to say the least, but it was apparent that this potent offense just couldn’t hang lockdown defense of the Jets.

Even though it was disappointing to see the patriots get knocked out as early as they did, the season was a success and something to build on moving forward.

Finishing the year with 3,900 passing yards, 38 passing touchdowns and just four interceptions, Tom Brady has been given the Offensive Player of the Year award. No other plan the National Football League this season was worthy of this award. Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagle had a good year and was able to resurrect his career, but in comparison to Tom Brady he didn’t deserve to win this one.
