MVP runner up: Dan Connolly I went ahead and gave the player of the game award to Brady. I don't think anyone needs a reasoning behind that. My darkhourse MVP for this game is Connolly. He stepped in for Koppen and the offense didn't skip a beat. He was brilliant in his shotgun snaps and help up in blocking. When Koppen went down, that really was a point that things could have started going badly. It wouldn't have been the first time a team lost their center and then things fell apart. So Connolly deserves big time props for not only stepping in and handling things but IMO doing a very good job.
