    I'm still laughing. Amazing how anyone could come to that conclusion. It's the first time I've seen someone reference Favre and MVP in the same sentence as to this year.

    I've always pegged Mortenson as anti Pats. More fuel to the fire.

    If Brady nosedives spectacularly, it could happen.

    Of course, then I expect Mortenson to write the following: Does Brady deserve to be in the Pro Bowl?

    Doesn't Mort have a vote? This could be the start of more backlash. Brady might get robbed AGAIN. I feel bad for him sometimes... Not too bad. He makes a ton of cash and has the hotties. I guess I feel bad for myself as a fan more than him. LOL

    He also just said well they may go undefeated in the regular season, but may not in the post-season, since they will face Indy again.

    age should have nothing to do with this.

    the only way Favre could win is if they put age into the voting and give it to him b/c he's 57 and is playing well.

    If brady throws 50 TD passes, he is the MVP. I have no doubt about this. If he is somehow robbed anyways, then it will so completely invalidate the award that it won't matter anyways. No concerns here.

    Hahaha, yeah, it's almost as if they're crediting him for the fact that he went out and started playing intelligently after about 4-5 years of being average at best at his position.

    LOL, Mort's funny. He's also a ridiculous human being overall and a huuuuge Pats hater. I don't care what Brady wins, as long as it's the Super Bowl.

    If Favre gets it for this year I'll be especially pissed seeing as how it's almost the exact same situation Brady had to play in during the '05 season, no running game whatsoever and leading a team to a winning record. And Farve most definitely has a better defense in the first half than Brady did that year. The duplicity in the way sports reporters and fans think absolutely disgusts me.

    I've never quite understood the man love for Farve. While he's had a very good year, it's the first one he's had in a while. Brady is having a career year if it continues.

    The hatred from ESPN is amazing. That is why I boycotted that pathetic excuse of a sports mecca.

    With all due respect to Mort, yeah ******* right.

    I think Adrian Peterson will be Brady's biggest competition. It'll be hard not to give it to a guy who will rush for 2000 yards.

    Maybe Mort should split-screen the stats.

    Anyone who'd say that Favre (or anyone) deserves it over Brady should be beaten with a hose.

    Dude, I am still laughing.

    I really like it when Stallworth throws zingers like this at folks. I think that he said that Moss was like 57 a couple of weeks back.

    I would pay to see that.


    Really, there are so many good programming ideas that come out of this forum.

    I could watch that for like a couple of hours. :)

    The league should just give Brady the MVP award right now.He's going to win this award by a landslide.

    Favre is having a nifty season, no doubt. It should be a fitting end to his career, nobody wants to see a classy legend like Favre go on a downer.

    But, C'mon, you cannot deny Brady's accomplishments this year. Sometimes a player puts up numbers so spectacular that you cannot deny the player the MVP. The Pats could be a .500 team and Brady still is the MVP.

    If Brady didn't play another game for the rest of the season, you'd still have a pretty compelling case for him as MVP.

    These stupid sportwriters have to make up stories so that people dont realize the season is over.

    Let's go piece by piece so far and break it down, note that Brady has played in ONE more game than Favre thus far:

    RECORD
    Brady: 9-0
    Favre: 7-1
    Edge: Brady

    PASSER RATING:
    Brady: 131.8
    Favre: 93.3
    Edge: Brady

    PASSING TDs:
    Brady: 33
    Favre: 13
    Per game:
    Brady: 3.7
    Favre: 1.6
    Edge: Brady

    PASSING YARDs:

    Brady: 2686
    Favre: 2406
    Per game:
    Brady: 298.4
    Favre: 300.7
    Edge: Favre

    COMPLETION PCT:
    Brady: 73.2%
    Favre: 66.6%
    Edge: Brady

    INT:
    Brady: 4
    Favre: 8
    Per game:
    Brady: .44
    Favre: 1
    Edge: Brady

    Against COMMON FOES (SD & WAS):

    Brady: 123 & 125.6 ratings
    Favre: 110.3 & 45.6 ratings
    Edge: Brady

    So there's 7 pretty simply categories, Brady wins easily in 6 of them, Favre barely edges in one. Not to mention the odds of Favre not being a douche bag down the stretch and throwing a mass amount of picks is pretty slim.

    Mort's a douche. A huge, huge douche. It's that simple.

    Wow, nice compilation. Brady has thrown more than twice as many TDs with half as many picks, which contributes in large part to his having a 40 point advantage in passer rating. Mortensen is just stirring up ****- I don't care how much the rest of the league hates the Pats, Brady really can't not get the award.

    That would be pretty neat. Moss would have to crush the receiving TD record for it to occur (which I don't think he will)

    While Brady is fully deserving of the award so far this season, it still isnt until the playoff contenders are decided. Not that he is likely to nosedive, but it aint over till it's over.

    A part of me is, however, uncomfortable with the MVP award in the first place. Firstly because it is a popularity contest to a large extent, but more importantly I believe there hasnt been an MVP that has added a ring to that award in the same season this century. It's almost like the Madden Curse, you dont really want to win it in case you crash in the playoffs (Manning(2), McNair, Gannon, LT and Alexander.

    Stop worrying. It's ONE guy that said it, and not only that, I'd put money on Mortensen voting for Brady if he had a vote. Guys get excited when they see something like what Favre did, and are not putting down Brady, but just stating that Favre is playing a like a great leader.

    Brady is the MVP, hands down. It will be a unanimous selection. Don't fret.

    I never liked Mortenson I could never put my finger on it, although now I know why.
    If Brady loses MVP the only worse crime was OJ getting away with murder!

    Seriously people think about this.
