The NFL Network just announced that Patriots quarterback Brady was honored as the Associated Press offensive player of the year award.

Brady, who is currently recovering from foot surgery, finished the season with a 14-2 regular season record.  He had one of the best performances of his career, finishing 324-of-492 for 3900 yards and 36 touchdowns, with just 4 interceptions during the regular season with a QB rating of 111.0.  He finished 8th in the league in yards, but his QB rating lead all other passers while his 4 interceptions were the lowest among other NFL starters.  He also set an NFL record 335 passes without throwing an interception this season.

Brady is also considered to be a favorite to also win the NFL's MVP award, and was a unanimous All Pro, but didn't participate in the Pro Bowl thanks to his surgery.
